No, really, the driver was great, he was very nice and he did a great guide job. He explained a lot of things about the places we visited, even when were making a lot noise. He also sang a couple of songs and it was astonishing, trust me.

Our driver, John O'Donovan, put up with over 50 of us college students and was so great! He told us all about the history of each place we went. He adapted to our schedule and we got to see so much in just 2 days of touring Kerry, Ireland. I would definitely recommend traveling with him and this company :)

My wife and I and one other couple did an 11 day customized tour of the Island. The mini-van was top notch, and our driver/historian was Michael Power. You could not ask for a better driver than Michael. Michael is passionate about Ireland, curious as much or more than we were, and was willing to make out trip extra special.... More

We booked Butlers to collect wedding guests from the church to the hotel reception.We had an old fashion double decor bus which added to the occasion. The driver was very accommodating and helpful and punctual. The guests were full of praise and said it added to the enjoyment of the day.So a big thank you to Butlers.

That is how Butlers made us feel from our first email. What a fantastic company! It is such a good value! They made our family of eight adventure to Ireland into a TRIP of a LIFETIME. They helped us to plan our itinerary, are very flexible, and respond to any questions promptly. We had a nine day tour. Our driver/tour... More

We (group of 8) hired Butlers for our 8 day golf trip around Ireland and Northern Ireland. From the moment we hired Butlers they went out of their way to make sure our trip was going to be a success. Ciara, Claire, and Liz in the office made sure our itinerary was doable, reviewed our tee times, and made sure... More

We (group of 4) hired Butlers for 5 day tour as a portion of our 10 day trip to Ireland. John Stapleton was an excellent tour guide/driver. He offered valuable information and advice on our itinerary and added extra sights that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Very polite, cooperative and friendly. We would highly recommend John!

As a first time organizer of a retreat at Springfield Castle the owners recommended Butler's Bus tours. The experience was beyond all expectations. Our delightful singing historian bus driver, John O'Donovan, is a jewel. Not only incredibly informative but the man can carry a tune!!!! He adjusted to our needs, went above and beyond by getting contacts for those of... More
