"It is so hard to explain how amazing Irish Luxury Tours has been! From the first minute that we booked our tour, Shaun and Eva have been unbelievable! So professional and responsive! They listened to our needs and they delivered! Now, let me heap some praises on our guide, Kieran Doherty… do we feel like he is family to us, now?? Yes! What an awesome person and guide- he went over and above for us every single step of the way! He found my Irish grandmother’s address and all the information on her family. I was BLOWN AWAY!!! He knew my husband loves soccer, so he obtained authentic jerseys for he and our son-in-law- he took us to all his favorite pubs and we got treated like royalty! This trip was just so amazing in so many ways, and we couldn’t have done this without our guide and the planning that Irish Luxury Yours did for us. Every single detail was 100% perfect! Our accommodations were incredible as well. Please do yourself a favor and plan your next trip with Irish Luxury Tours and ask for our Irish buddy Kieran to be your faithful guide- you will not be disappointed!! I promise!!"

Des was an awesome driver! We hired Irish Luxury Tours as my Dad was golfing and Mom and I were sightseeing. Des knew the local sites and provided history and background. He went above and beyond for us!

My mom worked with Claire on the booking and appreciated the options and input during the planning process.

"Excellent tour. Our guide was Peter. Excellent sense of humor, knowledgeable, acquainted with the features of the land. He often made suggestions on revising our trip to improve efficiency and interest. He was always on time, and patient with our group of six people. He picked excellent restaurants, and was always accommodating for each individual. He quickly learned the needs of a disparate group. Excellent social intelligence. The trip was fantastic."

Cheryl C , US

"My husband and I spent 11 marvelous days on the “Dublin, South, and Southwest Tour” of Ireland. We can’t say enough about how wonderful our experience was. Our driver (and now friend), Tony Byrne, guided us through a beautiful journey full of laughs and discovery. We loved every minute we spent with him listening to his stories. The accommodations were indeed luxurious and the pace was perfect. Our trip was customized to incorporate sightseeing and relaxation. It was truly a memorable trip and we would highly recommend this company."

PC Spears , West Palm, Florida

"Shaun Rogers made our hopes become reality with an itinerary that included everything we requested. Our family of 7, including 3 teens, had a delightful experience for two weeks in the Republic and Northern Ireland. Tony Byrne, our God-sent driver/guide was fun, thoughtful, knowledgeable and flexible. Each member of our family connected quickly with Tony and we are ever-grateful for his wit and wisdom. Don’t tell him I said so, lest his ego becomes over inflated! We all highly recommend Irish Luxury Tours and Tony."

PL , Greenville, South Carolina

"We had two tours with Kieran during our vacation in Ireland. Both were fabulous! Kieran was an amazing guide, and had a vast and impressive knowledge of history. He even went out of his way to research sites having to do with our ancestry – taking us to places off the regular route. We definitely appreciated all he did for us. We learned so much, and definitely recommend him. We had six in our group, from ages 21 – 80 years old, and everyone loved him. Thank you Kieran from the mcnamara clan!"

Jayne M , Santa Clarita, California

"My husband uses this service while on business multiple times a year, and we use them when on holiday as a family and they are top-notch. We have always had friendly, kind drivers who have a great deal of information to share and are timely when minding a schedule. Whether for trips to and from the airport, or driving tours covering several days, this is a wonderful way to travel if you can. Highly recommended."

Mellis BD , Buffalo Grove, Illinois

"We just returned from a wonderful 9-day tour of Ireland arranged by Shaun Rodgers of Irish Luxury Tours. It was a great trip! Four of us saw most of Ireland with the expert guidance of driver/guide Kieran. Kieran made the trip so special. From Dublin, to Kinsale, Cork, Killarney and Galway, our trip was extraordinary. We felt in capable hands with Kieran all the way. Thanks, Irish Luxury Tours for the trip of a lifetime. If we are lucky enough to get back to Ireland, we will definitely use your services again."

Janelle H , Ottumwa, US

"Our family of seven, ranging in age from 7 – 76, spent 8 glorious days vacationing in Ireland. With Shaun Rodger’s help, we mapped out an itinerary to please each member of our family. Our trip could not have gone better. From the moment we were greeted at the airport by our driver and guide, Tony, we had an incredible time and were able to sit back and relax and know we were in good hands. We were truly sad to leave Tony at the end of the trip – he was full of information, good humor and gave as good as he got. We sincerely hope to return again in the near future and have Tony escort us through another adventure in Ireland!"

ATK , Gainsville, Georgia

"I won a trip to Northern Ireland with Irish Luxury Tours. It was one Of the best trips I’ve ever been On! The man who organised my trip was called Shaun Rodgers and he was an absolute angel! He was on call and constant contact each and every step of the way! He met and organised the trip according to everything We wanted to see and do. Myself and my fiancé stayed in two amazing hotels two nights each… the Bushmills inn in Antrim near the giants causeway & the merchant hotel in Belfast city in the heart of everything. Sean recommended the hotels and organised our tours for titanic and giants causeway he included dinners and room credit to make our trip that extra special. It truly was an incredible unforgettable luxurious experience. I can’t thank Shaun enough and I would 100% recommend booking tours and trips through him and luxury tours Ireland as a whole! Amazing!"

Jo O , Dublin, Ireland

"I used Irish Luxury Tours for a 10 day Ireland visit late April-early May 2017. And it was worth every penny! First of all, working with Shaun through email was very easy and he always responded very quickly to my questions. I just had to tell him what things we were interested in and he came up with a great itinerary. The hotels they picked for us was really a great treat. They all had great positives (the location in Dublin, the view in Killarney, historic castles) and all were 5 star. If you get a chance to visit Ireland you have to stay at Ashford Castle- it’s a once in a lifetime experience. And we loved our driver- Kieran. Everyday he showed up in a sparkling clean BMW with water and newspapers for us. Then he would do all the work while we were able to relax in the backseat and enjoy the beautiful Irish scenery. Because it was just us and Kieran we were able to tailor the trip as we went. We could spend as much or as little time as we wanted at any stop; we didn’t have to wait for a bus load of people. Obviously this trip cost more than your standard “big bus tour” but it was worth it! It was a stress free, relaxing time and we got to visit some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world."

Annes Doc , San Antonio, Texas

"My daughter and I took a 14 day tour with Irish Luxury Tours and it was fantastic. Shaun Rogers helped us plan the tour before we left – going back and forth with email until he had a plan that suited us. Our driver/guide was Kieran D. I had a little reservation about spending two full weeks with one drive/guide. However, in the end, we could have taken Kieran home with us! All of the arrangements were perfect. We stayed in some beautiful hotels and castles, first class all the way. In addition to all the major attractions in Ireland, there were a couple of out of the way places we wanted to visit (The Quiet Man Bridge, etc.) and Shaun and/or Kieran fit them all in. The driver/guide understood that we wanted to shop, shop, shop and he delivered, taking us to some really nice stores and allowing us time in several villages to shop. There was no hunting for him or time limits – he found us every time, I don’t know how.. He also made sure we knew about several entertainment activities and would recommend the most wonderful pubs and restaurants and some other extras!. I cannot say enough about our excellent driver/guide. I recommend Irish Luxury Tours to anyone traveling in Ireland, whether it is for a weekend or two weeks. One other thing about Shaun Rogers: I told him we were taking a short trip to Scotland after our Ireland trip just to see the Royal Tattoo and have a quick trip to Isle of Skye. He planned that for us as well. So nice to not have to worry about a single thing for three whole weeks of traveling in Europe!"

AB , Hartwell, Georgia

"We had an amazing experience using Irish Luxury tours – and had a magical 10-day visit to Ireland. We started in Dublin and toured the south and west counties before returning to Dublin for a final night. Working with Shaun Rodgers was tremendous. He was extremely accessible via emai and we were able to tweak, change, add, subtract items from our itinerary. We traveled as a party of four – two adults and two children ages 12 and 19 – so the fact that this was a completely custom tour just for us (not part of a larger tour bus/tour group) was important. We stayed at the four hotels suggested by Shaun they were all five-star, first-rate places. On a trip like this you want the accommodations to be superb – we would go back to any of the hotels in a heartbeat. (We stayed at the Shelbourne in Dublin, the Perryville House in Kinsale, the Aghadoe Heights Spa and Hotel in Killarney and the Ashford Castle in Cong.) But – the thing that made our trip so special was our driver Sean McBride. Sean picked us up in Dublin in our private luxury minivan and we had an extremely comfortable drive around the Country. Sean was so professional, courteous and friendly – always checking to see how our children were doing and whether we needed anything, etc. Sean was completely flexible when we decided to change things up on a day – always there to support us however we wanted our vacation to be. Sean shared so much of his knowledge about and love for Ireland. Because of Sean, we now feel like experts in Ireland’s landmarks, farming and even athletics. Sean felt like part of the family and without a doubt was the primary reason we came back from Ireland feeling like this was a trip of a lifetime for our family. We were so glad we chose Irish Luxury Tours and encourage others to use this amazing service."

RMS , Los Angeles, California

"We had the perfect trip. Everything was great, the hotels were wonderful, the service was excellent everywhere, We loved the Hotels you selected, And Tony our driver could not have done a better job. We enjoyed being with him and he handled everything perfectly. We are already planning a return trip for next August."

Jill H , Charleston, South Carolina

"We recently had the trip of a Lifetime with this incredible company. Our amazing driver, Kieran Doherty, was over the top fantastic. He was more than just a driver. He took care of our every need and provided so much history of our family. He was so incredibly thoughtful and kind. We are already planning our next trip!!!! Thanks Doc!!!!!"

Deb Ortega , Annaheim, California

"We recently had the pleasure of having Peter Maloney as our driver for 6 days. My 87 yr old mother and I so enjoyed the experience. Peter was extremely helpful in allowing us to locate some of our ancestral homes with only minimal information from Not only did he assist us with research and communication, he was willing to take us to those towns spontaneously. He also was wonderful with all of the regular touring that we did, providing helpful suggestions and tips. From Dublin, to Ardmore, to Killarney, to Dromoland Castle to the Cliffs of Mohr and places in between, it was a grand adventure! Peter was punctual, polite, patient and the most pleasant driver I have ever had. He has a manner which is so relaxed and kind. He is highly professional and organized as well. Peter is perfect! I am so grateful to have had the good fortune to be under his gentle guidance and felt extremely safe as did my mother. Please pass this along to the owner of the company with the highest praise possible. We will be requesting him in the future!"

Carolyn Bouchard and Elaine Keegan , Pittsburgh, Pensylvania

"I can’t say enough about how fantastic Shaun was in helping us plan our Irish Luxury Tour around a family reunion in West Ireland. My husband and I traveled with our 11 year old twin daughters. Our Irish Luxury Tour was broken into two parts and Shaun was very willing to plan an itinerary that worked with us for before our family reunion and after the reunion! Shaun was instigative in helping plan our trip to Northern Ireland, a part we had not considered visiting before but fell in love with. From the hotel selection to visiting a traditional Aran woolen shop and the windy back roads less traveled, Shaun was spot on with his recommendations, even helping with suggestions of places to visit while we were doing our own thing on the reunion portion of our trip. Many highlights but his advice to visit The Glens of Antrim, Giants Causeway, The Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle and arrange for a private walking tour of Derry as well as Hennigan’s Heritage Centre near Swinford, Achill Island and Keem Beach were just some of the fabulous places he suggested. I would not hesitate to recommend Irish Luxury Tours to help plan a trip to Ireland, we left enough to temp us back for a return trip."

Seasam , Hendon, Virginia

"Kieran did a wonderful job explaining Ireland to the four of us. We ask & he delivered 110%. Our two weeks were full with good food, pubs & brews, and many new places to visit & explore."

"We would like to thank you for making our trip to Ireland so memorable. We had a great time and enjoyed your choice of sights and towns. We saw and learned so much about Ireland and hope one day to come back with our kids."

Debbie, Art, Joe and Betty , California, USA

"Just a note to say a huge thank you from our group of pensioners who experienced a lovely musical pub tour with yourself and the team. Everyone in the group was delighted with the content of the tour, the friendliness of the people involved and were all exhausted by the time they reached home – which is always the sign of a great holiday. All are now asking 'when is the next trip?'"

Rita Andrews , London, UK

"I can’t tell you how wonderful we all think you are. You made the history LIVE for us and helped to show us the HEART of your beautiful Ireland. Your wit, your incredible knowledge, your love of music and your passion for Ireland have touched our loves forever. Thank you thank you."
