Had a very clean and spacious van pick us up at the Shannon Airport where Ciaran, our guide was waiting. He provided us with knowledge of the areas we traveled, while in route to the Cliffs. Ciaran’s patience, and politeness was very much appreciated. As it got near lunch time, he picked a place to stop for lunch. His recommendation for authentic fish and chips was spot on. After a good two hours at the Cliffs, he allowed plenty of time for pub visits, and restroom stops on the way to Dublin. It was a very long day. Ciaran was a champ throughout the entire journey. We would love to have him as our guide on our next visit. Thank you Ciaran!

We booked 4 day trips and had exceptional service lining up what we wanted to do each day before we arrived. Once we arrived our Driver Cirian communicated with us very well before our tours to make everything run smooth. Cirian worked with us to ensure we got to do anything extra we could fit in and was very knowledgeable about the local area and history.

We were three “old” friends traveling our first time to Ireland. We were so fortunate to have Ciaran as our guide and driver. He introduced us not only to the countryside, and beautiful vistas and Cliffs of Moher, but made the drive fun with his stories and Irish music. Ciaran made additional stops along the way at our requests and answered our questions on history and geography. He didn’t cut us short on time and delivered us to his favorite pizzeria in Galway at the end of our day. Plus, the coach was lovely and comfortable. We plan to look him up for return trips in warmer weather. Thank you so much for your warm, genuine hospitality!!

From the moment I inquired about a special trip for me and my daughter, the folks at Luxury Irish Tours were so wonderful. They built an entire proposal for us and made the whole trip dynamic and yet easy and relaxing. Cairan was our driver and guide. He was the best—so thoughtful, entertaining, knowledgeable, and kind, and took such good care of us. I look forward to staying in touch and can’t wait to plan another trip with them. Couldn’t recommend more! Thank you Cairan and everyone at Luxury Irish Tours!

Our trip to Ireland was for ten days and let me tell you, it was amazing! We had never been to Ireland and wanted to experience as much as possible in a short period.

It was just my wife and me on the trip, so it was customized to what we wanted to see. We were picked up at our hotel in Dublin by our driver, Ciaran, who was amazing. He was very professional, knowledgeable about Ireland's history, the places to see, and made sure that the order in which we visited areas made sense.

Luxury Irish Tours ensured that every place we stayed at met our high expectations.

During the trip, my wife got a stomach bug, and he immediately stepped into action. He contacted Claire at Luxury Irish Tours, and they adjusted our journey on the fly. We were still able to see everything we wanted,d even with the unexpected one-night stop.

At every village, we stopped in Ciaran, figured out for us a great place to eat and made sure we didn't get lost. He was quick to point out where and not to go so we didn't get ripped off. He would always ask, "How was lunch? Did it live up to your expectations?"

My wife loves to shop while on vacation, and usually, we need to purchase another suitcase to ship home with our gifts. Ciaran suggested he get a large box and send it home for us. Talk about personalized service. The package was huge, and it made it back to the states in under a week without any problems.

We went to Kylemore Abbey, and while we were visiting the attraction, a beautiful rainbow presented itself and Ciaran took a picture. It was stunning, and to our surprise, he gave us a framed photo of the rainbow. What more can I say?

The trip was fantastic, the planning by Claire was exceptional, and Ciaran was amazing. He was more than a driver, for the time we were there he looked after us as if we were his family.

If you are looking for a top-notch trip with top-notch staff, look no further.

Absolutely phenomenal time. Traveled for a week with my wife and 11 month old son. Ciaran was our driver/guide and will definitely request him again next time. Provided 5 star service, treated us great, told us what was worth our time, and gave us awesome restaurant suggestions. Treated my family and me like his own. Top notch guide and even better person.

If I could give it more than 5 stars I would! AMAZING vacation! Claire from Luxury Irish Tours was unbelievably friendly, flexible, detail oriented, knowledgable and patient with planning this trip! We were a group of 10 (5 couples in our 50s) off to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary. Having gone to an all inclusive beach vacation for our 25th, we all wanted to go to Ireland but, other than knowing about Guinness beer and the Cliffs of Moher we needed someone to help with the itinerary....HAPPILY, Claire was able to put together an amazing 10 day itinerary which suited all of our desires and expectations. Claire also matched us up with Des who would be our knowledgable, careful, fabulous and FUNNY driver while we were there. From the moment we met him until our hug goodbye, he kept us entertained and informed the entire time. All accommodations were centrally located and we were all able to stay one night in a castle too! AHHH..to be queen for a day as well. Some of the highlights were touring the House of Waterford Crystal where I bought a gorgeous crystal cross for my curio and a crystal shamrock for my Christmas tree, kissing the Blarney Stone, touring the Titanic Experience, having a private Jameson Whiskey tour and tasting, attending an authentic Irish Gaelic Roots dancing show, visiting Killarney, Dingle, Dromoland Castle and the Ring of Kerry. We visited a Falconry where falcons landed on our arms, we fed baby lambs, watched the border collies round up the sheep and even had the experience of making Irish bread and scones. We even had a tour and tasting at the Guinness Storehouse where we learned how Guinness was brewed. We were very active but never tired! Des was amazing at getting us from place to place on time and made sure we had plenty of food and drinks on the mini coach for us to enjoy along the way. Honestly, Claire's planning and Des' driving skills could not be better. I would recommend them to everyone!!!

Making Irish Soda Bread and scones with Kate (the baker) at her home was so nice. From the moment she opened her front door and handed the 10 of us the aprons, we knew we were going to have a great time. The Cliffs of Moher was breathtaking...you cannot capture that view on a photo...however, I am happy to have it memorized in my mind. Lastly, the driving times we spent in the mini coach with Des was definitely at the top of the list of memories I have. I do not think I have laughed so much in the longest time. The warm and friendly chemistry Des shared with the 10 of us was unbelievable. He is truly a people person and is the perfect person for the job.

This was an amazing trip all the way. Claire put together a great itinerary that managed to cover all the things Ireland has to see and do. She was very responsive before and during the trip, and was helpful and patient as we worked through any and all questions we had.

Des, our driver, also helped to make the trip as great as it was. He was so friendly, personable, and knowledgeable, and kept us all moving to where we needed to be - no easy feat for our group of 10! He knew so much about Ireland and was a fabulous guide to accompany us. Absolutely tops all the way!

Our trip with Luxury Irish Tours met and exceeded all our expectations.

Starting with our driver/tour guide Des, who we looked forward to having conversations and laughs with each day, he quickly became more like a long lost friend early on and was a key part in the enjoyment of our travels.

We found Ireland to be a very beautiful, welcoming and friendly country.

We had a very enjoyable trip and if we ever decide to visit Ireland in the future, we would certainly book it with Luxury Irish Tours.
