John Finnigan was a wonderful tour guide that took us to neat little places out of the ordinary. He went above and beyond all of our expectations and we left as friends at the end of our vacation. We would recommend him as a driver for any of our friends. We found the chauffeur experience to be a wonderful way to explore a new place. We had a wonderful trip. Again, I think our driver had a lot to do with our success.

Liam Bourke was our driver and he was exceptional. We could have seen some of what we saw with him on our own (although I doubt we'd have seen nearly as much) but we would not have known half of what we were looking at. I think he had us figured out by the end of Day One and had a plan in his head first thing on Day Two! He made sure we saw what we wanted, ate delicious food, had good Guinness and were well entertained and even educated. I think we all felt like we left a good friend in Ireland when we came home.

The chauffeur experience was new to me and it was wonderful. We would not have enjoyed the trip half as much without the helpful suggestions and time management provide by Jeff.

We were so very lucky to have Kevin Bourke as our chauffeur. I could go on for days praising his phenomenal sense of humor, politeness, professionalism - etc. I was absolutely overwhelmed with his ability to read each and every member of our group, and the group as a whole. He continually made suggestions on what we might want to do or see and he NEVER failed to overwhelm us. Every day was better than the last and we would spend every evening discussing what a fantastic guide we had. I wish everyone could book a tour with Kevin - They would have the vacation of a lifetime!

We LOVED Liam. We are a lively and energetic group as a family and hard to keep up with...but Liam just blew us away. He really was a significant factor in making our family trip one of the best in our lifetime. Liam is a special breed. He is the perfect blend of that dry Irish wit - more charming and energetic than a leprechaun - yet as smart as a whip and a historian to boot! He is worth his weight in gold. He took us places and showed us things that only a native with great knowledge and true passion would do. It was the luck of the Irish that gave us Liam as our chauffeur, guide and angel!

Lodging Choices Explained:
- B&Bs & Guesthouses – Small, family-run establishments that offer the best value, personal attention and genuine Irish hospitality. Usually located on the outskirts of town centers. Not suitable for groups of 6+.
- Hotels from 3 to 5 Star – We only work with the best Irish hotels in any star category. More expensive than B&Bs, but usually conveniently located in the heart of town centers.
- Country Houses & Manors – Period properties with character and old-world charm. Ideal if you are seeking a secluded, scenic location, and don’t care about being walking distance from town.
- Castles: Unique, historical properties, also likely to be in more remote locations. While castles are generally our most expensive lodging option, they are also the most popular. Please note that every castle is completely different – some are very reasonably-priced, while others are quite expensive.
- Vacation Rentals: Staying in a Vacation Rental home for a week is an ideal option for families or groups of 4 to 8. Prices are very reasonable for such groups. Learn more about this Lodging type here
