When planning our trip to Ireland, we knew we were going to want to spend some time exploring the coast and as we are avid motorcyclists at home (as well as have had the opportunity to travel by motorbike in a few other countries) so we immediately started looking into that option and came across RetroVentures. I was a bit... More

Hi Degan. We're a bit late responding! Like the review - consider the vibrations a free massage as you ride along! Thanks for choosing us. We love the Enfields and we hope you haven't forgotten to go get some for yourselves. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Chris and Elaine. More

Chris and Elaine Davidson of RetroVentures Ireland put together an incredible trip for my wife and I! We hired their 1970 MGB which really made the trip go from great to truly amazing! Driving the car was a true joy for us, as we love classic cars. The car is in excellent condition, was extremely good on gas and it... More

Hi Mike and Bunny. Thank you so much for your business and for your review.

An unbelievable start to our Irish holiday. Ireland has always been on our to-do list and Retroventures planned us an excellent 7 day motorcycle tour. Chris and Elaine are very friendly and professional and took care of all our needs and wishes...my wife and I are a little fussy and they coped admirably. We had considered taking our own bikes...

It was great to ride the major routes like the Wild Atlantic Way, and more so the suggested, less traveled paths away from the tourist hordes in buses. They will also set you up to stay in some out of the way places even the locals love to vacation. I am told I got lucky with how many days in... More

I cannot more highly recommend RetroVentures. Chris and Elaine were so immensely helpful with everything from answering questions to providing logistical help. They went above and beyond what was required and even literally gave me their own clothing when my luggage was lost. The motorcycles were in perfect aesthetic and mechanical condition. The route they suggested offered some of the... More

We rented their RE Sidecar Motorcycle for seven days of exploration in the "wild atlantic way" region, northern half....Chris and Elaine provided us a fun and reliable rig, great support in terms of trip logistical planning advice! Next time we're back in Ireland, we'll definitely go with their service again!
