Luxury Irish Tours and there host Joe Hanney gave us a proper Irish experience and a wonderful tour of the country! Despite coming back to things post pandemic we felt like we didn’t miss out on anything. The pick up of the extended family, at the airport, was flawless . Joe laid out a recommended itinerary for us daily throughout our 9 days in East, South and Western Ireland which we would sometimes alter with no objection from him. The rides were comfortable despite the ever-changing terrain. Joe gave us the perfect blend of Irish history, fun facts and even casual conversational keep our spirits high in between destinations. Most of all he is extremely patient and adjusted to all of our diverse personalities. We highly recommend Joe Hanney and Luxury Irish Tours to all families, couples , business and even solo travelers as he/ they will ensure you have a memorable trip to a Ireland. - Milan S. And Family :)

Zicasso and Luxury Irish Tours did an amazing job helping us plan our trip to Ireland and making sure that everything went smoothly once we got there. Claire listened to what we wanted and set up a fabulous itinerary, taking care of all the details from booking hotels, to tours to drivers. They were able to accommodate requested changes - both before we left and in real time as we were touring through Ireland. Claire and crew were super responsive and made sure all the details were covered.

Besides taking care of the details, they did a fabulous job of arranging tour guides. We had a private tour of Dublin and our guide, Cathal Sheahan, was amazing. He personalized the tour to our specific interests, was so knowledgeable and fun. We had a private driver/guide, John Walsh, for a day trip from Dublin to Glendalough and the Wicklow Mountains. He also was very knowledgeable and showed us some amazing places off the beaten path. For our 5 days touring south and western Ireland, we had the same driver/guide, Des Doherty, who stayed with us the whole time. He was knowledgeable and fun, and an expert driver - which is needed on the small, winding roads of Ireland driving on the left side. Des did a great job helping us adjust our itinerary when the weather was bad, telling us stories of each town we drove through, showing us amazing sights and making sure everything went smoothly with our hotels and tours. He did an amazing job and kept us right on schedule without any bit of rush, and we were trying to see it ALL in 9 days!

I can't imagine a better trip to Ireland and we couldn't have done it without Claire, our guides, and Zicasso/Luxury Irish Tours. If you want to travel with no worries, they should be your first call.

We found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…Des!! Our family of 11 enjoyed an amazing genealogy tour of Ireland with Des as our private driver. Des is the consummate professional…he was always on time, provided expert advice and filled our trip with amazing historical information on Ireland….he exhibits excellence in all he does. He is very kind, flexible and a joy to spend time with. Our trip of a lifetime was seamless due to Des. We can not thank him enough. Best decision ever to hire Luxury Irish Tours for our trip…we would highly recommend that you request Des as your driver! Des deserves a 10 star rating!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you Luxury Irish Tours for helping us with a vacation of a lifetime. The tour guide/driver that you assigned us was spectacular! Eóin was extremely knowledgeable, fun, and world-class. He made our trip enjoyable with his great sense of humor and his informative highlights of the places we visited. He took a very full itinerary and made it relaxing but full of amazing historical sights. Our highlights included Adare Manor and Adare Village, Wicklow Mountains, Sally Gap, Rock of Cashel, Powerscourt, Trump Doonbeg, Blarney Castle, and so much more with our 12 days that we were with Eóin. Everyday he was prompt to pick us up and was extremely professional in dropping us off at our hotel accommodations with unloading our luggage and making sure all was well with the accommodations. Fantastic,once of a lifetime vacation made possible by our guide Eóin. You must ask for him when you book with Luxury Irish Tours.

I highly recommend the wonderful team at Luxury Irish Tours who helped me design a six day itinerary that covered the heritage, culture, color and beauty of SE and SW Ireland. Claire found beautiful lodging close to restaurants and shops and Peter Chambers, my guide and driver, added the special touches only a native of the country can provide. His knowledge guided my choices and helped me make best use of my limited time. Having a driver gave me the ultimate freedom and flexibility that package tours just don’t allow. And Peter opened doors— ladies, how long has it been? Without question I will turn to Peter and Claire for any future travel I plan in Ireland.

Words can not adequately describe how perfect our trip was. My mother's dream was to see Ireland, but my father at age 78 is not able to walk very far. I wanted her to be able to experience Ireland but also make sure my father could be included. I contacted several companies with the above desires and Claire at Luxury Irish Tours was the only one that adequately addressed my concerns about my father's abilities. From there, I left it in her's and then Noel, our guide's hands. Claire put together the perfect itinerary to provide a history of Ireland and its people and then to experience the Irish countryside. She was quick with her responses to my questions and easily provided extra amenities like a wheelchair in case my father needed it and a yoga mat on request. After we booked the trip, my father's health declined further and I was very nervous that he wasn't going to be able to participate in the trip, but Noel, our guide and driver made sure he could do almost everything. Noel felt like part of our family and personalized the trip more than I ever could have imagined. We had 5 in our group, my nuclear family, and he learned what each one of us was interested in and made stops along the route specifically for each of us often effortlessly juggling us in different places at the same time. For the times that my father was too tired to participate, Noel kept him company in the van with witty conversation. The hotels we stayed at were top notch with service that was not just professional, but personal. The staff also took care of us like family. I had gone into the trip with some trepidation about making sure both of my parents were taken care of but Claire and Noel made it so easy that during the trip I was just able to enjoy what is likely the last trip my family will be able to take together. I cannot thank them enough for creating a trip that was absolutely perfect.

Luxury Irish Tours was a pleasure to work with. Clare was amazing and made all of our wishes come true. This trip was a trip of a lifetime, we traveled with 27 friends and family. We toured most of Ireland from Dublin to Kinsale, Killarney, Dingle and Galway. We did all the touristy things one would expect and have wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Luxury Irish Tours took care of everything, Transportation, Hotels, Golf Reservations, Caddies and Clubs, private transpiration for the golfers, Dinner reservations, Tours of the Guinness and Jameson Factories, Suggestions of what to do and where to go to make the most of our trip. The process was seamless as Clare's attention to detail was impeccable, all questions were answered promptly and efficiently. She was a dream to work with, I can't thank her and Luxury Irish Tours enough, my entire family had an incredible time thanks to Luxury Irish Tours.

Luxury Irish Tours was the perfect choice ! Very professional while being personable. Beautiful 2022 Mercedes 20 passenger van with reclining seats with plenty of room for our luggage underneath. They went above and beyond by gifting us the one & only Des Roche !!!!! As our tour guide /driver /historic info machine/ caretaker/comedian / true Ireland born and raised 7th generation story teller that was agreed by all of our 18 person group the Best part of our 2 week trip! Des made everything happen for us no matter what was thrown his was he handled it with a smile. He made things fun, knew all kinds of interesting things to point out on our tour around Ireland and made sure we stopped at all of the picturesque places on the way to our destinations. We enjoyed him so much we wanted him included in all of our day, lunches , dinners he was a part of our vacation. 1000% will be asking for him to be our guide anytime we come back and recommending him to everyone. You will see many of these 5 star ratings in December because all our group feels the exact same way !! Des if you are reading this thanks again for a perfect job well done. What an asset Luxury Irish Tours has in you ! Hope to see you again !

I could write pages and pages about how wonderful I was treated. I simply went online and researched North Ireland tour companies and their reviews. I chose this one. I emailed Claire and explained that I was a senior, widow and traveling alone. I wanted to spend a week seeing as much as possible. She immediately emailed me her suggested itinerary and pricing for a private car/driver. My driver, who along the way became my friend, was Des. He showed up on time in his immaculate Mercedes and away we went. We had a blast! A lot of laughter for sure. Every morning we would review Claire's itinerary and go with it or change it up. I always felt safe and assured that Des wanted my week to be really fun and adventurous. And it was! Thank you Claire and your whole team for being so thoughtful and reliable. I highly recommend this company.

I used Irish Luxury Tours for a very personalized tour while in Dublin for four days. This was a "bucket list" trip for seven family members, my six adult children and me (mom). We toured attractions in the city and took easy trips within an hour outside of Dublin. From the planning stages with Claire, the company was perfection! She was full of suggestions about an itinerary and catered to our needs regarding golfing for some of the group. Her follow-through on emails was very appreciated. Our tour guide Thelma and driver Martin were so fun and knowledgeable! They really were the reason our trip was so great! Thelma escorted us to every entrance to make sure there were no problems. Martin pulled up with the van as soon as we were finished (very appreciated since I have a bad knee). Did I mention the vans used are so luxurious and comfortable? I give this tour company the highest recommendation and hope I get the chance to work with them again.
