Christmas, and Christmas cards.

Celebrating Christmas early on a funfair ride.
I believe that Christmas brings out the best in most people, and i do enjoy the atmosphere it generates. Shopping goes crazy, and there is a lot more life in the pubs and restaurants as the holiday season gets under way.
This year i have decided against sending Christmas cards, and instead i am donating the cost of that to a couple of my favourite charities, The Children's Hospital in Crumlin in Dublin, and The Barretstown Castle, a special camp for children with cancer. Both of these places are really special, and i am sure you will understand when you do not receive a card from me this year.
You have all been so special to me, and your support over the years has been instrumental in helping me to build the business i have today.
Traveling with you through some of Ireland's most beautiful places has always been a pleasure for me, and seeing my customers enjoying this experience is what gives me the greatest satisfaction from what most times does not seem like a job at all.
Thank you all for being my friends, and please continue to send your families, and your pals, my way, i will do my best always to look after them.
God bless you all at Christmas, and may the New Year be kind and generous to all of you, and your loved ones.
Your pals in Ireland
Dave and Sue

Wild Atlantic chauffeured tours with Dove and Dave Hogan

Sorry but i have been having a break since my touring season ended but i am back once again now and will be posting more often from now on.
Do you really want to drive these roads, or would you enjoy it better if you let me do that for you.?
I myself was born on the Wild Atlantic Way on the shores of the beautiful Galway Bay, overlooking the Atlantic ocean, and the Aran Islands, which guard the entrance at the mouth of that bay. Galway was such a wonderful place to grow up in, we were swimming all through the Summer months, and thoroughly enjoying the many games we would play on the seafront during the wild raging Winter storms. We had buggies with sails, and we would fly along the seafront roads with little regard for danger, and we did somehow survive it all.
Today our enjoyment is more sensible, and now it is all about the magnificent views, the wonderful friendly people, the clean fresh air, and the fabulous food, fresh fish and seafood, and the finest of free range beef and lamb. Of course there are the many old styled pubs where you can enjoy your pint of Guinness, or whatever, in the evenings. It is heaven to me.
Touring areas like the Dingle peninsula, is for me a magical benefit from what i do for a living. enjoying people enjoying themselves, something which gives me great pleasure, and people cannot but enjoy these areas where i grew up, and have spent most of my life. 

How about a journey through the fantastic Gap of Dunloe on the horse drawn jaunting cars. This road was carved through the Kerry mountains by a giant glacier during the ice age.These type of extras are always included in my tours and you can enjoy them too.
Scenes like this, with sheep risking life and limb to find the sweetest of grass on the hillsides.
Finding the remains of old famine time cottages, like the ones that maybe your own ancestors lived in many years ago.
My heart is in rural Ireland where i believe you find the "Real Irish" the people. People who have not lost their wonderful friendly way, and who welcome everybody as though they were long lost cousins. I stopped on the road one day and had a lovely conversation with this really friendly farmer, who was enjoying the sunshine while walking his Irish Red Setter dogs.
Need i say any more. Come and see it with me for yourself.
I always also make time for people to visit out capital city, Dublin, at either the begining or the end of their tour with me. Maybe you may want to include other places that you have to visit also for personal reasons. Just let me know and we can plan the perfect holiday for you.

Drop me a line. I would love to hear from you. I still have free time in the coming year, but the sooner you start planning, the better.
Looking forward to talking to you. Just send me your number, and i will call you.
