Butlers Tours driver Kevin McCarthy raised the bar for our future travel plans! With unforeseen airline cancellations and delays, flexibility was key to our recent family outing to Ireland. Kevin flawlessly took it all in stride working hour-by-hour ensuring that each member of our group enjoyed a first-rate experience. As the seven of us traveled from city-to-city, we relaxed on the Luxury Mini Bus in clean, supportive and comfortable seats, and appreciated the ability to charge our cell phones using convenient USB ports. Meeting the individual requests of each member of our group, Kevin enhanced our days by customizing stops between pre-arranged items on our itinerary and, taking cues from spontaneous discussions, provided us with light refreshments en route! He demonstrated his high work ethic by using his personal time in the evening to plan the next day's points of interest. During the trips between stops, his narrative made the excursion informative and interesting, enhancing the ambiance with traditional Irish music playing in the background. With his fine attention to detail, we benefitted from his knowledge of the best area restaurants and pubs that had nightly entertainment. Ever cognoscente of our family's needs, one evening he transported our girls to safe shopping areas, while dropping another member who needed a rest back to our hotel, and directing the rest of the group to a popular night spot. Kevin exhibited a level of unassuming perfection that we never dreamt possible. He was our humble guide from greeting us at the Dublin airport, to staying with us as we waited for our negative COVID-19 tests on the day of departure, to checking in to be certain that everyone in our group made it back safely to the states. There are numerous examples of Kevin's dedication and professionalism exhibited during our stay, and Butlers Tours are fortunate to have an exceptionally high quality member of their team. Because of Kevin McCarthy's exemplary representation of the Butlers Tours company, we will rely solely on Butlers to arrange the tours, accommodations, and travel insurance for our future Ireland vacation needs.

Our driver, Liam, became one of the family. His stories, songs, and recommendations were all top notch. He was always happy and made each of our journeys during our 9 days more enjoyable. He joined us on the bikes on the Aran Islands to show us around and it was excellent. West things we never would have because he took us there. I would highly recommend Butlers!!!

Thank you for your lovely review. Liam is the perfect person to accompany you around Ireland. There is nothing to match having your own driver/guide and private vehicle to enjoy the perfect trip.

We took a full day tour in Cork that included a city tour, Blarney Castle and Kinsale in May 2022. The tour was well paced, and the tour guide, Naill, was excellent. The bus was extremely cramped/uncomfortable, and it had a very bad smell.

I am delighted you enjoyed your shore excursion with Niall. With regards to a smell on the bus, we are perplexed as nobody including yourself mentioned anything on the day and neither our driver or cleaning team were aware of any odour issue either at that time or since.

Our trip started out as only being 3-5 people and ended up being 14. Our driver Mike Brady made the trip in my eyes. Always early and willing to help. Very personable/funny and very knowledgeable. Knew every question we asked and if he didn’t the next day he told us the answer as he must have researched. Always gave us 1-2 great places to eat and other places to check out wherever we were staying. He also got us moving (even though we usually were waiting for 13 and 14) to our destination knowing if we didn’t get there early or on time we would be bombarded by others going to the same place. Made it nice having some places to ourselves for a little bit to get some awesome photos. Though we were a pain with all the luggage we had Mike never batted an eye to help. Felt like when our trip was over we had to say goodbye to a friend in Mike. The bus was always clean. We had plenty of room for our group and all the things we were buying. We saw so much in the week that we were there and don’t think it would have been possible without Butler Tours. Thank you for the amazing week in Ireland 🇮🇪
