Chauffeurdriven vacations Ireland West and South west of Ireland 2017 with the experts.



My lovely holly tree, pictured in the sunshine in my garden. It really does make it feel like Christmas here.


One of our lovely comfortable touring cars pictured on the harbour front in Kinvara with the ancient Dun Guaire castle in the background. This is a family sized vehicle , also suitable for a golfing group. We cater for groups of varying sizes, from singles and couples, to family and larger sized groups.
We concentrate out touring on the western seaboard mainly, all the way along the Wild Atlantic way, the area i grew up in and love most of all. Our tours always allow for a couple of days in Dublin, if required, and also special requested visits to areas of special interest to our clients, such as areas with an ancestral history.The west, and south west is, for me, the most beautiful part of Ireland. This is an area which was devastated by our terrible famine, the area from which hundreds of thousands of people fled, mainly to the USA, in order to escape disease and hunger, an area blessed by the wonderful rugged Atlantic coastline, offshore islands, magnificent mountain ranges, quaint small towns and villages, where you can still listen to people speak our native Irish language, listen to their songs and their traditional music, and enjoy their Irish dancing, and sit in an Irish pub and enjoy a pint of Guinness with native people who will always make you feel very much at home.
Come and enjoy it with us.
I spent a good deal of time in the Killarney area over the Christmas, and i took this cute picture of a decorated horse with his jaunting car.
 My son was at home for the Christmas from Chicago, and here we are pictured together in the main street of Killarney, waiting for Santa to turn up with a little something for us.
 Another one of our happy groups who toured with us this Summer, pictured in front of their bus.
 The Gap of Dunloe in county Kerry is one of my own favourite areas. Not an area to drive through yourself, eventhough some people do. The roads are extremely narrow and dangerous, and, if you do drive, you miss out on the part of the journey where you travel down through the lakes in the open boats. By driving yourself you also put the lives of people traveling in the jaunting cars, at risk, along with your own.
In this picture, the horse is begining the journey to the Gap, an opening between the mountain tops which was carved by an ancient glacier in the ice-age.
 One of the bridges you cross on your way to the top.
 This horse looks like he is very happy to have reached the summit. the views from here are just breath-taking.
 Now, at last, on the way down through the lakes in the open boats, and on the way back to Killarney and Ross castle on Lough Laune.
 All happy together in the boat, and wrapped up in their life jackets. Not to worry, it is a very safe journey indeed.
 I just had to add this picture of this little baby donkey, just a couple of weeks old, and being well watched by Mom.
 One of the views of the many small lakes you pass as you look  back down from the Gap,
 Finally for today, the awesome Cliffs of Moher.
What more do you need to make you come to Ireland?
Just send us a message and we will take it from there. When you have the right people working with you on your plan, you can rest assured that all is well.
