My wife and I visited Ireland in Sept 2019 with the intention of touring the country, since this was our first visit, and to celebrate our adult daughter's birthday, who also traveled with us. We arranged for a private chauffeur service through James Doran of Kilkenny City (which is a city worth visiting more than once), who was recommended to us from a friend who used his company the year before for a slightly larger party of travelers. We used James for seven continuous days, though I understand he will do shorter or longer engagements. Needless to say, we were extremely pleased with the services of James. He met us in Dublin and we started our tour of southern and western Ireland. We had spoken beforehand about the types of things we wanted to do and see; and were not disappointed. James lives in Kilkenny City and, it seems, knows all the backroads around the country. We certainly traveled on roads "never before seen by an American", visited both the normal tourist sites, plus out of the way artisans, pubs, castles, local restaurants, and vistas that those on tourist buses sadly bypass. James would arrange his schedule around ours, pick us up at a mutually agreed upon time (he was always prompt to the minute), took us wherever we wanted to go, and dropped us off at our next hotel/country house. We were able to stop and look at anything that caught our eye and could spend as much time at any revue we pleased. During the car ride, James maintained an excellent sense of humor while talking about local culture, history, and sharing the local language colloquialisms. My wife kept a diary of Irish phrases which was a special treat. A more pleasant experience of our first visit to Ireland could not be found. Our next visit will certainly include the expert and reliable services of James and his company.

James took two of us on a tour from Kilkenny to the Rock of Cashel the end of September. At that point, we had been in Ireland almost two weeks. This private car trip with James was one of the highlights of our trip! He was prompt, the car was very comfortable, and he was very knowledgeable about the area. Along with the Rock of Cashel, he went out of his way to show us special sites to see in the Kilkenny area. He was very courteous and kind— when one friend needed to go to an Urgent Care (due to her allergies) on the way back—he made sure we got there and got in on a Saturday! I would highly recommend hiring James if you are looking for a tour in and around Kilkenny. The Rock of Cashel is also an incredible place to visi

We had a wonderful private Car tour with James. He picked us right on time and shared His Beautiful country. Price was terrific. We went to the Roc of Cashel. He gave us plenty of time to enjoy the site. He also took us to an Urgent Care facilities that I needed to see a Dr. Give him a call. You will enjoy every single minute of this tour.

All I can is wow! James was an amazing tour guide! Prompt, courteous, professional, knowledgeable, funny and engaging! He picked us up at 8 am and took us for an 11 hour tour from Kilkenny to the Rock of Cashel to Blarney to Cork to Cobh and then back to Kilkenny. He had a clean and comfortable car, and never made us feel rushed. He offered great advice and tips for our travels and made us feel like we had known him for years! Thank you James for an amazing and unforgettable experience! We highly recommend him and would certainly use him again! Slainte James and thank you!
