Originally from Tipperary, Podge has been living In Galway on the West coast since the mid 90’s. As a former National Rally-winning Navigator, he has competed in Motorsport events all over the country over the past 30 years. As a result, Podge has extensive knowledge of every county in Ireland which comes in handy as a tour driver with ICT. Portmagee and the Kerry Cliffs are his favourite destinations along the Wild Atlantic Way and also the North Antrim Coastline. Podge also highly recommends including the Belfast Political Tour on visits to Northern Ireland. His other interests include Photography & GAA and when not touring supporting his province Connacht Rugby.
Our group of 8 golfers has just returned from a wonderful trip to Ireland.
“Our driver, Podge Newe, was instrumental in our enjoyment of the trip. Meeting us promptly at the Dublin airport, he helped us directly to his vehicle, loaded us up, and we hit the road. His experience and driving expertise was apparent from the very start, as were his hospitality and knowledge of Ireland. He anticipated our needs, and was well-connected with numerous restaurants and their staff, enabling us to make difficult dining reservations. His recommendations were excellent- and he saved us much time by making sure we were taken care of. He was very flexible with any changes to our itinerary, and was willing to go the extra mile (no pun intended) to make our trip as enjoyable as possible.
His happy demeanor and friendly smile put us at ease throughout our trip. His vehicle was comfortable, clean, and luxurious. Such a combination made our road travel extremely easy- the miles on the road passed quickly and with much laughter.
We consider him more than our driver- he was our guide, concierge, advisor, and most of all, our trusted friend. We all agreed that when we return to Ireland, we will seek him out to again show us his home country.”
