Best Tour Company in Ireland – October 2023
We just ended an eight day tour with Colin, our driver and tour guide. I can't say enough positive things about both Colin and Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Everything was first class, from the accommodations to the luxury Mercedes Sprinter we traveled in. Alison and Ellen helped plan a fabulous itinerary and Colin made sure we saw and did anything we wanted. He even managed to find the site of the church where one of our friend's grandparents got married. We told him we would like to see sheep herding and the next day it was the first thing we did.
If you are looking for a first class experience, this is the company.
Use the nicest people to plan your dream trip to Ireland! – September 2023
The MOST accommodating, friendly, supportive, helpful people ever to arrange our trip! Somehow, they got all of our requests fit into our agenda even adding last minute stops requested. Sarah was so kind and helpful. Bob, our driver, was easygoing, helpful, and accommodating. we hope to go back to Northern Ireland, or maybe an agriculture intensive tour, and would only use Sarah and Bob!
Trust me... use them!
A Magical Trip! No better way to discover Ireland! – August 2023
I will start by saying we had the trip of a LIFETIME with Ireland Chauffeur Travel. My husband and I decided in July to book a trip to Ireland for August (4 weeks before our travel date) with our two young children, and we never could have done this without Ireland Chauffeur Travel, Alma, and all of their incredible staff and experience. Our itinerary was spot-on and we loved their recommendations for places to see and hotels to stay in. Possibly the BEST part of our trip was Toby, our driver/friend, who went above and beyond to make my family and I content during all moments of our stay.
Thank you for a magical experience through the most beautiful country. We can't wait to come back!
Hire a driver to see Ireland – July 2023
Definitely hire a driver to see Ireland. Mike was our driver was absolutely the best! He was so knowledgeable about the history and sights it gave us a much richer experience than we would have had following a map. Many times he pulled into places that we wouldn’t have known about that were absolute gems. Another benefit was that because we were on our own schedule, we got to linger in the places we loved and leave early from the places that didn’t interest us.
I can’t recommend this trip enough.
A Wonderful Adventure- June 2023
My husband and I, along with our four other friends, thoroughly enjoyed an incredible weeklong trip through Ireland in June, thanks to Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Bob Noonan (our driver/tour guide) and Alison Lonergan (travel advisor) were absolutely amazing and I can’t thank them enough. We felt SO lucky to have Bob as our guide! His impressive deep knowledge of Ireland’s history and culture really made a huge difference in our experience on this trip, and he went out of his way to show us so many beautiful landscapes. We all appreciated his accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, friendly, humorous, and kind spirit.
I would totally recommend Ireland Chauffeur Travel to anyone planning an Ireland trip and give them five stars!

An Irish experience beyond what we thought was possible – May 2023
We have just completed an amazing tour with Ireland Chauffeur Travel. Alison Lonergan worked with us and put together an itinerary that covered everything we could have hoped to see and experience.
Our guide Siobhan Morrissey, was more than we could have hoped for. Her extensive knowledge of the country and her ability to share it with us was impressive. She went out of her way to ensure we saw everything possible and showed us many hidden gems. She was also incredibly helpful in dealing with the logistics of wheelchair travel. She is incredibly kind and patient.
These two women gave us an Irish experience beyond what we thought possible.
