I love everything about planning an Ireland vacation. From finding airfare deals to arranging our transportation to mapping our destinations… I love it all.
But, to be honest, it can be very time consuming. And, if you don't love it, very overwhelming.
So what is the traveler to Ireland to do if they don't want to do all the planning, but want to have a say in what they see and do?
You hire a driver guide!
Hiring a Driver Guide in Ireland
Ireland Chauffeur Travel is a family owned and operated business based in Cashel, Tipperary and my first recommendation for a driver guide in Ireland.
Shane Leahy is both the owner of Ireland Chauffeur Travel as well as one of the tour operators. Says Shane,
We are a family business with three members of the same family working directly in the business. We started doing small groups of two and four persons (mostly couples) and as our business grew we developed more for family tours as families love to travel together and nowadays multigenerational travel is very common to Ireland, especially from the USA.
The advantages are having your own luxury touring coach and your own driver guide who acts as a liaison and a guide for all the family to ensure everybody gets to do what they want (within reason)
The guide is great for the parents and grandparents as he takes the pressure not just off the driving but also the decision making so they have more time just to relax and have fun – which is what the travel is all about.
Ireland Chauffeur Travel are moving towards more experiential family tours which involve activities such as hiking, biking, walking and horseback riding. We also arrange cookery demonstrations, pottery making, sheep dog demonstrations, so the family leaves Ireland relaxed and also educated as to the culture, lifestyle and skills of the people.
We also book the best places to eat, drink and listen to music as well as recommend shopping and hard to find places where clients can enjoy authentic experiences.
