Butler Tour Company helped customize our 8 day trip to Ireland for my two daughters and myself. Having a chauffeur to drive and tour you around the Island is the absolute best way to go. Jessie our driver and tour guide was the best, She was very accommodating and brought us to many different places we never would have known about if not for her. She also provided us with dinner and entertainment accommodations and looked after booking events for us. I would highly recommend Butler Tours and Jessie, you won’t be disappointed.

Getting a driver to take us around Ireland was such a great decision for our holiday. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. The van was excellent with lots of room, a separate compartment for all the luggage, USB ports at every seat, and lovely large windows to take in the views. But the best part was Kevin our driver. He was incredibly well informed about everything to do and see in Ireland. His guidance was great to plan the days activities, but the real skill was in reading the group and taking us to things we had no idea we’re just out of the way. Examples were the Drombeg Stone Circle and The South Pole Inn. Small little places that all of us marked as favourites. Then there is the farm of Kevin as a person! So kind, patient, charming and helpful. You simply couldn’t ask for a better guide to visit this lovely island.

My mother (agd 80), son (aged 19) and I (aged 53) recently completed a 6-day private driving tour with Butler's and could not be happier with the experience. The booking process was easy, their staff made suggestions both before and during the trip to make the most of our itinerary, and our driver (Kevin Butler) was helpful, affable, professional, knowledgeable about Ireland and an overall pleasure. We had a wonderful time and it was due in large part to our experience with Butler's Tours.

We took a 9-day family (9 people) vacation through Ireland and Northern Ireland to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. John O'Donovan was our driver, and we could not have asked for a better experience. He was a most accommodating, patient, kind, humorous, and personable man. We had our own itinerary, but John added so much to it. His love of Ireland and his knowledge of its geography, history, and culture was apparent everyday as he added little out of the way spots to our travels, sang local songs, and told stories while being completely attentive to us as travelers. Can't say enough good things about working with the folks at Butlers and our overall experience. I would definitely do it again!

Hello Ian, Our 7+ days with Butler Tours was the adventure of a lifetime. Mike Brady was such an important member of our travel team and he is a big reason why our trip was so successful and so much fun. My little granddaughter, Peyton, 9, grew most attached to Mike and was so sad when she had to say goodbye. Mike was most considerate in allowing us plenty of time to visit all of our many points of interest. The flexibility that this provided was directly related to the wonderful experience of all the sights we saw. Mike is knowledgeable and conversant on such a wide variety of topics. With 12 of us in our party, we fired questions at him regularly everyday as we rode along and we all feel that we know so much more about Ireland’s history, economy, geology, geography, ecology, people and places. Mike is such a warm and personable fellow and a most safe and smooth driver. Mike and I had several extended one on one conversations during the week and I feel that I have made a friend for life. We also had a wonderful day with Paddy as our fill-in driver and guide and we learned so much like how the experiment to have Ireland change to right-side driving will begin with the trucks and buses! But seriously, he also had wide and deep knowledge of the areas we saw. Every member of our family cherishes a fond memory of Mike and Paddy and their contributions to our special vacation. Using Butler Tours was a splendid way to tour Ireland and I can truly give you all my highest recommendation and say that I would Gladly use Butler Tours again !! 5 Stars and Beyond !! Thank you and God Bless, Mike Brady, Paddy and Butler Tours. Warm regards, Mike Henson, Patriarch of the Henson Clan

What a wonderful review. Although we have a top office team and great vehicles, it is the driver/guide that makes all the difference in having an amazing experience of Ireland. Touring Ireland with Mike Brady is a very special experience.
