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.

We hired Jonathan for two (non-consecutive) days. 1) Pick us up at Shannon airport in morning and take us around until late afternoon when we could check-in to Doolin Inn and 2) Take us from Doolin Inn on a tour and drop us in the afternoon at Kenmare.

Yup, that's really all the specifics we gave him and he put together two wonderful days of exploration along with insightful conversation along the way. We were so pleased with Jonathan's service, professionalism and charm. He recognized my husband’s love of old stonework and subtly slipped in some shopping for me.

He was responsive from my original reach out through our final drop off. We were in a very comfortable upscale sedan.

I highly recommend his services.

We had Jonathon transport us to and from Doolin and take us on a full day trip of the area , prompt, pleasant, knowledgeable with a well cared for BMW 7 series. He is among the best drivers we have engaged for such tours. We have done this in many parts of the world and he is of the first rank, you can’t do better for this charming and interesting small Irish town. I appreciated his prompt replies about area activities and his insight into life in Doolin.

If you want to get the most from your Ireland vacation, then hire Jonathan as your private driver and guide - he is worth every euro and more!! He was professional, as well as, personable and gave us an amazing 9-day experience. He showed us not only the touristy sites but also some local, backroad sites as well. He had great suggestions for restaurants, pubs and things to try like our favorite new cocktail - Hot Whiskey (a must!).

Hiring a private driver will elevate your Ireland experience to a whole new level and Jonathan is the perfect choice for the job. Enjoy!!

We Loved Johnathan's knowledge of the areas we went to, his suggestions for sites and restaurants, and his wonderful personality. It was a pleasure to ride with him; he did a great job making us feel at home throughout the trip. We were with him for 9 days and there wasn't a bad suggestion the entire time. I highly recommend Johnathan for your Ireland excursion.

My brother, sister and I spent 9 days exploring Ireland’s west coast with Jonathan. The vacation was perfect. Jonathan is professional, personable and flexible and a joy to tour with.

He had great suggestions for areas to visit that we were not familiar with. It was an amazing experience.

Having driven a rental car on a previous trip to Ireland I can attest that hiring a driver is a game changer.

I highly recommend Jonathan. I would definitely engage his services on my next trip to this beautiful country.

 Jonathan was very professional, friendly and great to spend time with. We used his services on 3 separate occasions and was not disappointed. Much preferably than driving ourselves, which we did on our previous trip to Ireland. It took the stress out of our vacation and allowed us to relax and enjoy

If you are more comfortable driving on the right side of the road (US, Canada, Germany, France) then I would strongly suggest that you will enjoy your holiday in Ireland much more by hiring a car with a chauffeur. The incremental cost for this service compared to a rental car plus insurance plus fuel is so much worth it. No tension driving, no hassles with parking, no worries of a damaged car, etc. Especially if you are older or if you have younger children with you.

Jonathan was our perfect driver. Safe, friendly, and an excellent guide. He made excellent recommendations for our days in western Ireland and happily accommodated any of our special requests…including an unexpected trip on short notice to the doctor’s office.

Best investment ever for our trip to Ireland. We look forward to returning next summer to visit Jonathan again.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to speak further about our experience with Private Drive Chauffeur.

Patrick and Jonathan were absolutely great to deal with. We had a great trip and Patrick really went the extra mile to take care of us during four days of drives and a trip back to Shannon airport at the end of our trip. We highly recommend them.

My husband and I agree, the best decision we made about our trip to Ireland was hiring Jonathan! It was like having a friend show you around the country!

We hired Jonathan as a private driver for 6 days while visiting Ireland last week. I connected with Jonathan a few months before our trip and shared all of the sites that I wanted to see and after a few emails back and forth, and with his input, the itinerary was finalized. And while Jonathan was not a tour guide, he did have a vast knowledge about where we were going...and his restaurant suggestions were amazing!

We were driven in a new 7 series BMW that was extremely comfortable. My husband often nodded off he was so relaxed! We both said that there were times where we know we would have ended up on the wrong side of the road if we were driving ourselves!

Having a private driver adds so much flexibility to the trip. One day it rained and so Jonathan suggested we check out a nearby attraction that was warm and dry! Another time I had a second castle on the itinerary and he suggested that since I like the gardens and grounds more than the castles themselves that we check out some gardens close by (Muckross House) and we LOVED them.

I cannot recommend Jonathan highly enough. When we return to Ireland again we will absolutely call him and tour more of the country with him!

Jonathan was great! He shared the Wild Atlantic Way with us in such a way that left no doubt that he loves and respects his country and community. Our lift from the airport was so engaging that we scheduled even more time with him. He has a lively sense of humor and is so knowledgeable about the area that no question went unanswered. We also had the pleasure of being escorted by Patrick, and he too helped make what was an incredibly wonderful trip even better. We recommend these services without hesitation, and with much enthusiasm. In fact, if you utilize them, you will thank us for it, anyway.
