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.

Just completed a week exploring the south of Ireland with Carrig Coaches and Michael Stritch, our amazing driver! We had a bit of an itinerary that Michael added to, showing us sites we didn’t know we needed to see…like Doolough Valley, Torc Falls, and Kylemore Abby. Touring Ireland with an Irishman who is both authentic and knowledgeable was extraordinary and added so much to the overall trip. Michael is easy to converse with and always the professional, showing up on schedule with a spotless Mercedes…perfect for the two of us. His recommendations for pubs and restaurants were always spot on and consistently resulted in an enjoyable evening out. In a COVID-world (and not), this is the way to see Ireland. Unforgettable! Thank you Michael!!

Where do I begin??!? We absolutely loved our trip to Ireland in 2020 and our trip to Scotland at the beginning of this month and I know a big part of why we loved these 2 trips so much was because of our amazing guide! Brendan Murphy is hands down, THE BEST tour guide that I have ever had! Not only is he full of knowledge of every single place we stopped at but he also made sure we safely got to each one of our destinations. He’s a gentlemen and very personable.
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!
I highly recommend Mr. Brendan Murphy of Carrig Coaches!

In what was the coldest day of the year, Carrig Coaches and their driver Mike Keane transported our students from West Limerick, collecting others in Limerick City to Dublin. The was was spotless, comfortable and despite fog, temperatures and traffic, we arrived precisely on time. Mike could not have been kinder to our students, we helped carrying displays, parked so no-one would slip and regaled everyone with his wit and kindness.

We planned a 12 day trip to Ireland with Cori Doyle at Gold Shield including a private driver through Carrig coaches. Beautiful visit. Cannot really improve on 12 days in Ireland, but our driver managed to do that. Brendan Murphy did a wonderful job—all the basics-on time, shared location’s history, clean vehicle, etc., but it was obvious he himself loved Ireland and wanted to share that with the 4 of us. He went to “above and beyond “ when we were at Aran Island-accessible only by ferry- when my husband fell and required stitches. He handled it all and his calm competence helped me feel calm while finding medical care (first rate) in a foreign country
When he told us about the song “40 shades of green” and then located a copy and played it, there was not a dry eye in the minivan.
Brendan Murphy and Carrig Coaches gave us a wonderful trip

I went to Ireland back in April 2022 with my mom, my sister, my aunt, my best friend, and my best friends mom. WE HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIVES.
Heading into the trip, we knew we were going to have a great time, but we had no idea it was going to be the trip of our lifetime and we owe that to Brendan Murphy our amazing and wonderful tour guide. He made our trip!! He over delivered on absolutely everything. He was so personable, he made it a Point to get to know each of us right from day one. He took us all over the country- Dublin, dingle, cliffs of moher, Kilkenny, Killarney, Kinsale, Galway. He Was so knowledgeable about the ins and outs of every place we stopped and made us laugh the entire time. Every request we had, he delivered AND SOME. I could go on and on but The last thing I’ll say is we cried when we left him- that should tell everything. When I go back, I will absolutely be booking again with him.

We partnered with CIE and Dermott Walsh to lead a private, custom 12 day tour throughout Ireland with 15 friends. Dermott came highly recommended by a travel agent colleague and we were so glad! Dermott is a highly accomplished professional guide and driver. He quickly developed rapport with each traveler, brought Irish history and culture alive for us, created constant moments of fun, laughter and wonder. Thank you, Dermott, for an unforgettable tour.

We were a group of 12 and had an amazing trip touring all around Ireland for two weeks. Ollie G was our driver/guide and was very knowledgeable and helpful in providing recommendations. The tour bus/van was very comfortable and had plenty of space for all of us to stretch out as well as plenty of luggage room.

Four friends on a first visit to Ireland couldn’t have had a more fun, well taken care of trip . The Carrig coaches van was new, spotless , comfortable , and equipped with bottles of water each morning . Our driver Mike Stritch is the main reason we were able to have such a magnificent trip !! He was always early and ready to help us have the best day possible. He knows the area and helped us make the best decisions about where to visit and how to best maximize our week. He stopped to let us explore snd take pictures when we wanted . With his easy demeanor and knowledge he made the trip stress free and relaxing. We felt like we had always known him and would recommend this company and Mike to anyone . If I could give Mike a ten I would. Thanks to Carrig Coaches for the preliminary information , coordinating our travels, and helping to set us up with the best Driver ever !

We (4 couples/lifelong friends) had an exciting 8 days in Ireland with our driver/tour guide, Michael Stritch. He quickly became a friend with his easy going personality & great sense of humor. He was truly amazing! Extremely interesting & knowledgeable about every town, road, historical site, shopping area, pub and restaurant that we visited.
He greeted us each morning ready to set out on the days adventure, in his spotless coach fully stocked with plenty of water for the day. He shared his passion for history and love of his country readily, engaging us all in thoughtful conversation throughout our journey. He navigated the 'tricky' roads with
confidence and ease, taking us to the most breathtaking sights in Ireland. Connemara National Park, Knock, Galway, Doolin, Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, Dingle, Ring of Kerry, Kenmare…we even went swimming at Coumeenoole Beach! We were grateful to have had such a wonderful driver & tour guide.
Thank you Michael and Carrig Coaches for an
unforgettable trip! Hope to see you again in 2023! when we return!

This trip was absolutely amazing. My brother and I traveled with our elderly mother (she’s 86). Brendan Murphey made the entire trip a dream come true for us. He is a true asset to your company and I highly recommend him for anyone that would like a friendly, knowledgeable and attentive driver and guide. We learned so much and had a fabulous adventure from start to finish. Thank you so much! I hope this is the first of many trips with your company and Brendan!
