Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We toured Scotland and Ireland with a group of 44 members of our church in Johns Creek, Georgia. The twelve-day trip was wonderful and included many interesting sites such as Stirling Castle, the Scottish Distillery, the Titanic Belfast Experience, Knock Shrine and Ireland's National Stud Farm. Colum was both the bus driver and our tour guide. He was very skillful, knowledgeable and personable with over 30 years of experience. The hotels in which we stayed were excellent with the exception of the Isle of Glencoe Hotel which is in need of renovations. The tour had a very good combination of group activities and time for one's own explorations of cities like Pitlochry, Edinburgh, Belfast, Galway and Dublin. The dinners that were included were delicious and the breakfast buffets offered a variety of tasty options. Our final evening of entertainment at Taylor's Three Rock gave us an appreciation for Irish music and dance. Thank you Brack Tours for a memorable vacation!

A group set the itinerary and then we set out to find a tour company willing to do what we wanted. Brack came through with flying colors. And more. Mike, our driver, was fantastic. Took us to places we didn't know about, The Garden of Remembrance. Just a great guy and a Kerry Man to boot. Thanks Brack and Thanks Mike. Enjoy your apple pie with cheese.

Recently returned from an amazing trip with my 3 sisters and a close friend. Brack Tours' Sinead Greaney helped me plan a wonderful trip to Galway to celebrate a milestone birthday for myself. I wanted to see the Christmas Market and Galway all decked out for Christmas. Two of my siblings had never been to Ireland. It was only a five day trip but with the help of our driver extraordinaire, Maura, we saw so many fabulous things, some very well known and some others a little off the beaten track. She took very good care of us, especially the babies (her knickname my younger sisters, lol) This is my third time using Brack Tours and they never disappoint. Every little detail is taken care of! I highly recommend using Brack Tours to help put together your dream trip! I definitely plan on reaching out to them again!

I've been on several trips with Brack Tours and this last one, which was a family tour was one of the best. Our driver, Dennis was so very nice, knowledgeable and accommodating and the hotels were outstanding. I highly recommend Brack Tours. Every stop was so well planned out.

We took our second trip with Brack Tours in September on their Thistles and Beatles tour with John Dady and Peter. We had a great time. The Highlands of Scotland are beautiful and we really enjoyed each of the hotels that were selected. Blair Palace and grounds is a pleasant walk into Pitlochry. The Black Sheep Lodge overnight surprised us with the view from the dining room over the Lock! Oban and our day trip to Isle of Mulls and Iona was our longest day, but well worth the time to explore the heritage of Iona. Edinburgh's true depth was apparent from our Virgin Hotel and a very central location from which to explore Edinburgh.
I was unaware of the beauty of the Lake District in UK and wished we had had more time to explore this area. The ferry ride down the lakes made a pleasant change from the bus ride. Our trip closed in Liverpool with a day to remember the Beatles. We made a stop at Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. We all enjoyed the chance to be photographed with the Fab Four along the Liverpool docks. Thanks for making this another fun adventure and site seeing tour.

My recent Irish Adventure with the Spain Brothers and Brack Tours was fantastic! I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun vacation with lots of great sightseeing, delicious food and drinks, nice accommodations, a comfortable coach/bus, and plenty of wonderful music! Colm, our tour director, was so knowledgeable and helpful. He offered several suggestions for restaurants and places of interest we could visit during our free time. The pace of the tour was perfect for me - a good balance of scheduled activities and time on my own to explore. Although we covered a lot of ground, it was relaxing and I never felt rushed. Thanks for an amazing road trip across Ireland!

When a larger family trip could not be arranged I took two teenage grandaughters to Ireland. Having traveled there previously with my wife, I was familiar with certain things she would have liked to share but sadly passed away in 2022. I navigated Dublin on our own and contracted with Brack Tours for a chauffeured tour for 6 days, to end in Waterford where there was a "gathering" of our clan.
I knew a fellow American who works bus tours for Brack and he put me in touch with Sinead Greany. We discussed the challenges of a grandfather keeping 2 teenage girls entertained and she later provided a proposed itinerary with available options. When Brack confirmed a driver we finalized the arrangements and were met by Maura in Dublin at the appointed time.
The personal care provided by a native driver was exemplary. Maura discussed various options and engaged the girls to assess some of their expectations. Driving by car affords the opportunity to use some roads a bus just can't and the whole tour had us feeling like VIP's. The kids complained we were doing too much but thoroughly enjoyed activities like zip lining, walking downtown Galway, exploring a cave and of course the beautiful scenery. A highlight was a demonstration of sheep herding and getting to pet and hold a small lamb. Another plus was staying downtown in Killarney, the kids favorite hotel and a horse carriage ride ending at yet another castle. Maura combined a drive to Dingle with the upper portion of the Ring of Kerry. We did tour Blarney castle, complete with kissing the stone and they enjoyed touring Cork gaol with the stories and characters that led to some interesting discussions.
Overall there were numerous memories and no shortcomings. I trust these kids will appreciate this trip even more over time and share with their own children some day.
I know from other family the Brack bus tours are well done but if you want a more private and customized experience I highly recommend considering a chauffer driven tour for smaller parties. I left with an even greater appreciation of what Ireland is all about, land of my ancestors.

My first trip to Ireland, and my first time traveling with BrackTours was an amazing experience on the west coast with stays in Galway, Killarney, and Ennis. I had planned for a lot of rain days in October but as it turned out, there was only one very rainy day that our plans had to be flexible. Our tour guide Derek Ryan was very knowledgeable and extremely entertaining during our entire week of day trips. The country is full of old culture and amazing views, and I would definitely return and travel with BrackTours again.

Excellent tour experience with Maureen’s West Coast Irish Adventure with our phenomenal coach driver and tour guide Derek Ryan. Derek brought his cheery disposition to us each day with a genuine caring sense that we enjoyed our time. He holds a wealth of information sharing loads of history and stories creating an informative and laughter-filled coach experience. Derek’s ability to flex the itinerary to help us make the most of our time with free time and structured tour was an unexpected and wonderful quality. Maureen Barry, Derek Ryan and Brack Tours created a great trip experience helping us to make lasting memories and a strong pull to return to Ireland sooner than later.
