My three sisters & I wanted to see all the tourists attractions without having to drive ourselves. Our driver/guide, Hoppy, was so upbeat and knowledgeable the day turned out to be a lot of fun. Would definitely hire him again.

After a lengthy delay in visiting Ireland due to COVID, we were finally able to go Ireland and again tour in the capable hands of Executive Hire. We cannot say enough good things about Executive Hire, Mike Ryan and our driver, Hoppy. My wife and I have been to Ireland multiple times but the couple traveling with us were making their first trip to Ireland and we all had a wonderful experience. Mike and his team provided tremendous assistance in the design and coordination of the trip even as travel guidelines/rules were changing in the weeks and months prior to our trip. The itinerary that we ended up with was outstanding and gave us a tremendous experience throughout much of the country. Hoppy met us at the airport and off we went on a magical experience from Dublin to Kilkenny to Killarney to Adare and back to Dublin over a 12 day trip. Hoppy was an font of knowledge on Ireland and knew details about every town and village that we traveled through as well as being known to people everywhere. He consistently demonstrated a commitment to meeting our needs on the trip and making sure we had the best Irish experience possible. Hoppy was witty, entertaining, caring and informative. Whether it was sight seeing, shopping, dining or wandering around a town, Hoppy had the answers for us. We cannot say enough positive things about Hoppy and the positive impact he had on our trip. We have been able to experience personal tours in multiple countries and we have not found any other company the provides the level of service that Executive Hire provides in Ireland. They are absolutely the best company to work with and their drivers are unmatched in terms of knowledge, skill and personality. We are already planning our next trip to Ireland and will make sure we use Executive Hire for that trip as well.

We just completed a 10 day tour of Ireland and I wanted to write a review and say what a fantastic time we had! Hoppy was our tour guide and he did such a fantastic job! He was so attentive to our needs and his knowledge of Ireland and each little town we drove through was amazing. He seemed to know people everywhere we went and was always taking us off the beaten path to see parts of Ireland that most tourists wouldn’t see. I felt bad for those who were on the big tour busses because we were having such a personalized tour with just my wife and I and Hoppy. I didn’t see any bad reviews of the company when I was researching them online and they lived up to that reputation. We will definitely be back and will absolutely use executive hire and Hoppy again. We will remember this vacation for a long time.

Well I am very late submitting this review. Our trip was well over a year ago but I have felt guilty and have been chastised by my husband ever since because of not writing this review-because of the extraordinary trip we experienced thanks to Mike and Patrick. We found Mike in a very circuitous way. In the process of researching a tour we were considering, I read a very negative review about that tour group. The reviewer dropped that company and called Executive Tours, crediting them with saving their vacation. So I dropped the other company and went to Mike's website and researched his company. I found glowing remarks. One particularly impressive review read, "Mike Ryan is magic". That sums it up. Mike is a hands on man who has built a business based on hard work, integrity and an unfailing devotion to providing an unbeatable travel experience for all his clients. We heard Mike's life story and if he had been raised in the United States he would be held up as an example of "The American Dream". He has built an impressive first class operation from scratch. Mike picked four of us up at the airport himself because our assigned driver had an injury the day before. He will not leave you stranded. He is resourceful, and, by the way, has made a lot of friends throughout Ireland and therefore has a lot of resources. That translates to benefit his travelers in countless ways you can't anticipate-like an upgrade here or there, special treatment at a tour, resources to solve problems that might arise, etc. Everyone knows Mike, knows he brings them business and that he is fair -- and that translates to an improved experience for his customers. He treats everyone in the chain well and does not disappoint. Our driver was Patrick. We LOVED Patrick. He was easy to travel with. If you have concerns about how it would be to spend hours in the car with a stranger, fear not if you get Patrick. He is genuine, charming, intuitive. You are instantly comfortable with him like an old friend and it is obvious he is in his element in his role as driver and tour guide. It was infinitely clear on numerous occasions that he was focused on doing whatever was in his power for us to have whatever we wanted . If we were tired, he picked up on that. He answered every inane question with respect. He made the trip personal as he shared his own insights about life in his beloved Ireland. Usually I am the one in our group of four (2 young senior couples) who does exhaustive research for our trips, the goal being to really experience our chosen destination up close and personal. We have been lucky enough to travel multiple times throughout Europe. This was a last minute trip and so there wasn't time for that. I communicated with Mike a few times about what, at the 50 foot level, we wanted to see and do. He put together a most remarkable trip. We begged off of kissing the Blarney stone but opted for a jaunty cart in Killarney which we thought sounded a bit touristy but it was, in fact, a highlight--partly because of Patrick steering us through it, partly because of the astounding beauty of that countryside, and partly because of the people we met on that cart. Dromoland Castle was and always will be one of our most cherished travel memories. What a fantastic place we hope to visit again when this virus is behind us. In summary, this was a trip of a lifetime. No worries about navigating the roads and the logistics of visiting this beautiful country full of the most kind and welcoming people we have ever encountered. We found, through Mike and Patrick, a passionate people with an incredible history to share and we left with an insight and great appreciation for them. The beauty of Executive Tours is that whatever vacation you can dream of--golfing their beautiful courses, seeing the sights, meeting the people, learning their history--they know how to make it happen. Thank you to Mike and Patrick for sharing with us your love of Ireland--and my apologies for this review being so late.

We finally had the right opportunity and time to visit/vacation in Ireland this year, a long-sought destination based on repeated recommendations from friends who had been there. To best experience/tour the country, we knew that a lot of country driving (rental car or hired driver) would be a critical component of the trip. A former work colleague who had toured Ireland twice referred us (strongly and glowingly) to Executive Hire's Mike Ryan, who took my initial toll-free inquiry call personally. From that moment on our Ireland experience was an incredible dream come true. He not only made terrific additional site/attraction suggestions to our rough itinerary, he also booked a golf tee time for me at a famous Dublin course and -- most importantly -- set us up with "the best tour driver in all of Ireland" Peter Noonan. That level of billing creates an incredibly high bar for anyone to live up to, but Peter delivered in spades and beyond. Remarkably intuitive about each of us so he could easily blend in as another family member, Peter took us on the country tour of a life time, from Dublin, to Galway to Killarney (and Dingle Peninsula) to Cork to Kilkenny and back to Dublin over six phenomenal days. Each day we dictated our pace, and Peter filled in each with special historical castle, sheep farm and countless natural green and wondrous sites (Cliffs of Moher et al), wonderful pub grub and downtown shopping recommendations, and Irish lore stories that kept us relaxed, entertained and thoroughly educated. Sure, a luxury Mercedes SUV w/expert driver costs more than a rental car, but it was worth every penny and so much more...we quickly realized that driving on the opposite side of the road and car (from the U.S.) along mountain curves on narrow two lane roads where you might run into a grazing herd of sheep right on the pavement at any moment was best left to the deft piloting capabilities of Peter. I cannot recommend Executive Hire enough for anybody who wants the absolute best Irish experience. Slainte!

Hello Rick and everyone, greetings to you all! Thank you so much for this lovely review, I really appreciate you taking the time to write it. It was my absolute pleasure to assist you with your trip to Ireland. I have also passed on your kind words to Peter, he is thrilled you enjoyed touring Ireland with him. The beauty of Ireland is definitely more enjoyable as a passenger than attempting to drive the winding Irish roads!! We hope to see you all again soon but until that time ...sláinte!! Kindest regards Mike Ryan
