The bus was spotless and comfortable, with plenty of space to move around. Also, it was "small" enough to let us go on some smaller roads that a standard bus might not be able to go. We were picked up and brought all along the country to various spots that we otherwise wouldn't be able to go.

Our guide, Keith, was always there to pick us up at least 10 minutes early. Keith was an invaluable resource to us and let us know about what events might occur in various towns as we passed by, and would suggest places to eat, visit, and walk around. He could also have us pop over to something not on the itinerary if he thought time permitted, which definitely improved our experience. His ability to "read the room" with respect to the entourage was fantastic, and was able to adapt how he lead us along our journey.

We all will happily have "The Fields of Athenry" stuck in our heads for many months I'm sure.

Our Vehicle was spotless, comfortable and the right size for 9 days of traveling the narrow roads of Ireland. It was easy to move around change seats get drinks etc. in what I would call a "1/2 bus" .
Add to that our Tour Guide/Driver Keith Boyd was the best. He is personable, funny, knowledgeable and able to read the group. He used those skills to spin on a dime in order to recommend & make changes on the fly. He made reservations, recommended restaurants, booked tours etc etc. He was always one step ahead. We couldn't have done 1/2 of what we did nor enjoyed our trip so thoroughly without his involvement. He is exceptional!
Book your ride with O'Callaghan & don't forget to ask for Keith!

Our family trip to Ireland was a 2019 Christmas gift from my parents. Multiple delays meant we finally took our sightseeing trip in April 2022. And it was a fantastic experience!

The major disadvantage - cost. Obviously getting a car to take you around Ireland isn't cheap. If you have a decent sized group and the funds, compare all those factors to figure out if this is right to you. More people makes this increasingly more worth it as oppose to renting multiple cars!

Immediate major advantages:
1) Avoiding driving on the roads yourself! I'm from the US, so it's difficult driving on the opposite side of the road, but the bigger issue is the road size. If you aren't on a major highway, the roads are small relative to a standard US road. You can get used to it after a while, but you avoid that entirely with a driver.

2) Safety with Alcohol! You are on vacation, and Ireland has some good whiskey and beer. You avoid needing to coordinate DD's when you have a driver and can ensure you are safe when someone else is driving you.

3) Built in tour guide. I'm not sure about all drivers, but Keith Boyd was our driver and he was fantastic. You don't just get someone who drives you, but a friendly and knowledgeable source who knows some history and information about locations you wouldn't otherwise know (I love learning factoids about the places I'm visiting so this is huge for me), and might visit some locations the driver knows that you would otherwise miss. Cool!

Keith was our driver and was knowledgeable, friendly, safe, with a good sense of a humor, and would occasionally break out into song which put our entire group into a good mood.

On the first night in Ireland, only my sister and I arrived on time because the rest of the family had problems with their flights. Keith said "Don't worry, I'll have them laughing by the time you see them later" and he was right. He quickly changed a miserable situation into a much better one for our family.

So overall, highly recommend, was a great experience having O'Callaghan and Keith was AWESOME.

The 16 seater coach was very smart and comfortable.
We were over for a long golf weekend.
Our driver Tom was incredibly helpful, I would definitely recommend using O’Callaghans, we certainly will on our next visit to Killarney.

Golf trip for 7 across SW IRL with Gavin Kelleher as our host. Simply outstanding. Great guy, knowledgeable about all things local and willing to help out with all standard and non-standard requests. Look forward to having him again if we are fortunate to return. Best we have experienced yet.

Just spent 6 days with Gavin on golfing trip across Southwest. Gavin was exceptional guide who was ready at a moments notice to help with anything we needed. Even better was the hot whiskey he had ready for all of us as we made the turn at Tralee on a 5 club wind day. The coach was exceptional clean and he was always at the ready to have more snacks, beer, whatever we needed available. He made great restaurant suggestions and facilitated our required Covid tests to return to the states seamlessly! Looking forward to booking the next trip with Gavin and O'Callaghan's already!

Golfing Trip with several work colleagues. Every aspect of trip planning and execution was flawless. Our tour leader Gavin was knowledgeable, helpful, flexible, and a ton a fun to be around.

Gavin Kelleher made sure that we had ample time to enjoy the experience of each golf venue while also ensuring that we allowed plenty of time to frequent numerous pubs along the way. Refreshments at the turn at Tralee highlighted his thoughtfulness and great sense of timing. Too many other superlatives to list them all!!

Thank you for a great great trip!!

Had a great time with Gavin! He was a wonderful host who helped keep us organized, shared great stories, and really made our experience as great as it could've been. I got home Sunday, and spent Monday looking at Northwest routes to plan with Gavin. Can't wait to get back!

Our driver, Patrick, managed a wonderful 2-week golf tour across the western, southwestern region and nine Ireland destinations. He was safe, friendly and demonstrated lots of expertise in navigating narrow roads, driveways and short arrival/departure points. He was totally "at our service."
We were in a relatively new model touring buss, which was comfortable and reasonably well-appointed--leather seating, refrigerator. (It would have been nice to have wireless service, as we had some 1-3 hour rides.)
Our driver also had good sensibilities about when to talk and bring our attention to points of interest or historical significance without being overbearing or talking too much. We really enjoyed his partnership during this trip.
