Eddie was our driver for our tours of Dingle Penninsula and the Ring of Kerry and we had a blast spending time with him. He did a marvelous job showing us all the sites and telling us about the history of each. It was the best day of our trip by far. Highly recommend.

Edward (Eddie) McDonald was our driver/guide for six days touring Ireland in his deluxe Mercedes Touring Van. We relied heavily on Eddie's experience and knowledge to guide us during our visit to the many many attractions we enjoyed. His delicious sense of humor and candid chat made our journey all the more fun. Truly a good, safe and conscientious driver... More

I travelled to Ireland , with a group from my college in Nova Scotia , Canada. We were blessed to have two van drivers drive us around Ireland. Tom and Eddie Macdonald are very friendly, and very knowledgable. They are both different but still made my trip very enjoyable and I feel like with having them take us around Ireland.... More

We arrived in Dublin @ 4:30 a.m. feeling tired & disoriented from our overnight flight. Now we had to check into our timeshare in Kilkenny, 90 minutes south of Dublin. Thank God we'd arranged with these good folks for a limo service! Rebecca's excellent professionalism & charm via emails made the planning easy. Even a follow up right before we... More

This, our first trip to Ireland, was short (6 days), but Tom McDonald made it seem as if we saw all the loveliness the country had to offer during our stay. Although our itinerary was pre-planned, he understood if we wanted to change, shorten or allow us our own time to explore, and yet keep us on track so that... More

I actually found 'A Rural Experience' through reviews on TripAdvisor. I contacted them and set up an email conversation with Rebecca McDonald. She was fantastic and answered by million questions patiently. I gave her two itineraries, one to the Cliffs of Moher, including Doolin and the Burren and the second was the Ring of Kerry. Tom was our guide and... More

Tom Mc Donald was a delight as a driver for our day-trip. He was waiting for us when we came down in morning. He was everything we could have asked for during the day: knowledgable, relaxed, a very smooth driver, and was happy to accommodate our requests. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a top class driver while visiting... More
