Hear What They Have To Say
I don't know where to begin to describe all the wonderful things that Sharon and Eoin at Galway Chauffeurs did for me and my mother. We were on a year-long planned trip. At the last minute, out of 4 of us, only 2, me and my mother, made the trip - due to last minute unforeseen circumstances. After two days in Dublin, we were ready to rent a car to Galway, then to Dingle. However at car rental, panic ensued at the thought of driving on opposite side of car and road that I we are used to in the U.S. I immediately returned the car and was referred to Galway Chauffers by our Airbnb host in Galway. Sharon, the owner, was immediately helping me figure out what to do for the last 4 days of our trip without us taking buses and trains due to my moms limited mobility. Sharon emailed me until late in the night with suggestions - she was very caring and concerned about me and my mother enjoying our Ireland trip. At Sharon's various suggestions, we decided to spend the extra money and book a 4-day trip with Eoin - FABULOUS driver. Best decision!!! Our trip then changed for the BEST EVER. Better than we could have planned in a year. They picked us up and took us to/from Galway to Bunratty, to Cliffs of Moher, to Killarney, to Dingle, to Dublin with side trips in between to Slea Head and Ring of Kerry. Eoin is first class, knowledgeable, friendly, kind, helpful, and at end of trip, we felt like family. Sharon was constantly in contact with us asking us about the trip and ensuring we were happy. My mother and I felt like royalty. They are very competitive in pricing but you cannot beat their service. They are PRICELESS. If you want a wonderful trip while in Ireland, call Sharon and ask for Eoin to drive you. (Though I have no doubt all of their drivers are amazing). When and if we get back to Ireland, they are the first people we will call. We now have amazing memories of Ireland thanks to Galway Chaffeurs.
I visited Galway last week and needed a local tour guide to explore family history locations. Galway Chauffeurs was brilliant, and I can’t thank Sharon and Eoin enough for making my vacation so memorable. I took a half-day tour with Sharon to explore family history, and the next day an all-day tour with Eoin to see the Burren. On the first day the weather couldn’t have been worse, but Sharon made the best of it and improvised so we visited all the family history locations I wanted, plus places off the beaten track like waterfalls, a castle hotel and Connemara ponies. She went above and beyond and was even able to find pictures of the original house where my great-great-great grandparents lived! On the second day I toured with Eoin and he was thoughtful and fun; customizing the tour so we could spend more time at places I liked, including those off the usual bus tour routes like the ruins of Corcomroe Abbey and seeing the Great Stalactite at Doolin Cave. With his knowledge of the local area he was able to save me both time and money so I could see more in a day. He even patiently indulged my need to stop for random pictures of cows. I recommend Galway Chauffeurs without hesitation. Over the two days it was more like road tripping with old friends I’d just met, and well worth the cost for a personalized experience I will never forget rather than being herded onto a bus to visit a few ‘check the box’ attractions and heavily curated experiences.
Excellent guiding and customized routing with sincere care. We asked for early morning pickup and the customized scenic route driving down to Shannon. Pre planning discussion was detailed and really felt the luxury of private chauffeur.
My family and I took the full day Burren/Cliffs of Moher tour and it was spectacular. The landscape and sites were breathtaking, but it was really our guide, Eoin, who made the tour so special. He radiates positivity and generosity, and his spirit is infectious. He made the trip fun and entertaining, while still being highly professional. He was also very knowledgeable about the local areas and Ireland in general, we all learned a ton from him and we were sad to part ways! Our tour with Eoin was by far the highlight of our trip to Ireland and I would wholeheartedly recommend a tour with Galway Chauffeurs.
My 1st grade friend and I visited Ireland to celebrate a milestone birthday. We called Galway Chauffeurs last minute on our way on the train into Galway. We were able to arrange a half day trip. Eoin picked us up at the train station and we were off. The car was very comfortable. It was a magnificent afternoon. We visited Connemara, Kylemore Abbey and gardens, Sky Road and stopped along the coast for my first ever Guinness. Eoin waited in the car for us. Eoin was a great tour guide, open to many many questions and we learned so much from him about everyday life in Ireland. Eoin dropped us at our hotel and made sure we got in okay. Our only regret was that we didn’t do a full day tour. Thank you so much Eoin for showing us your beloved Ireland, we had an awesome afternoon.
Our driver, Eoin, was wonderful to us and very accommodating. Everything went very smoothly for our group of four trip to Kylemore Abby, stop at Killary Fjord for pics, a peek at the Ashford Castle for pics, and onto Cong Village. Thank you Eoin for your great stories and information along the way. Eoin is very entertaining and fun, while being very professional as well. Thanks both to Eoin and Sharon. We hope to see you again!
Eoin picked us up on time and drove our family of four to Yeats’ Tower. Along the way he pointed out additional landmarks, and gave us excellent tips on what to visit in Galway that was nowhere mentioned in the guidebooks. He was very friendly and a great ambassador for his country and the city of Galway. We heartily recommend him as a driver and guide.
Our tour with Galway Chauffeurs and our driver, Eoin, was the highlight of our time in Galway, Ireland. My wife and I took a private tour to the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher, including some other wonderful stops recommended by Eoin. It was truly a spectacular day. We were lucky to have perfect weather to view the cliffs and walk in the Burren, but it was Eoin's knowledge, personality, spirit and kindness that made the trip so enjoyable. We could not more highly recommend Eoin and Galway Chauffeurs. It was a fantastic day. Eoin was prompt, courteous and professional. We stumbled upon the company through Trip Advisor and we were once again steered in the right direction. Do not hesitate to book them now. We had done a bus tour the day before that was good, but this was worth extra expense.
I booked a surprise tour for my husband with Galway Chauffeurs for our first trip to Ireland in May. My husband loves castles & was really interested in visiting a number of sites on the West Coast of Ireland during our stay. As we had never been to Ireland, Sharon put together an itinerary for us that blew my husband away. Our driver Eoin collected us from our hotel in Galway & took us to Duaguire Castle in Kinvarra, from there we were taken to the Burren & shown all the local sites of the area. We also visited Doonagore Castle in Doolin, took a walk along the cliffs of mother & finished off with Leamanah Castle. It was a wonderful tour that was both informative & fun. My husband and I can't wait to visit Ireland again & will definitely book Galway Chauffeurs for another tour.
My husband and I booked Galway Chauffeurs after seeing the trip advisors reviews and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We met with Eoin early in the morning in our hotel reception. Eoin was knowledgeable in local history and made some great food recommendations! We traveled the areas of Galway and Clare as part of our tour and the views were breathtaking. Could not thank or recommend Eoin and Sharon enough.
Eoin was a wonderful, friendly guide. We hit it off right away. The private tour allowed flexibility and plenty of photo opportunities in Connemara. We are so grateful to Eoin for a terrific day.
Sean helped us with a transfer from Galway to Dublin Airport on New Year’s Day. We were provided with a new Mercedes van which was very comfortable and spacious. Our driver was Fergus who is a true gentleman, friendly, accommodating, and most importantly a very safe driver. Even through the booking process, Sean and Fergus were very helpful, and I would highly recommend their services!
My friends and I were able to come to Ireland to watch my great nephew play rugby for the USA. We were so happy to find Galway Chauffeurs. Sean was so professional, informative and fun to spend the day with as he told us about the Cliff of Mohers one day and the next we hired him to show us the Abbey of Kylemore.We found their cars to be very clean and spacious . He even drove us from Galway to Belfast to see the last game. Highly recommend this service for seeing Western Ireland. We had limited time so this was an excellent way to see things in a timely manner.
Mike drove my Father and I all around Connemara. He listened to what we wanted to see and structured the tour accordingly. He was very knowledgeable and engaging and sensitive to some mobility issues which we had. He even took some photographs for us during our stop for lunch when our efforts failed to capture the beauty adequately. A fabulous, professional service!
Fergus drove our family of 7 adults, ages 18-86, for a wonderful day of touring from our guest house in Galway City, all over the Burren and down to the Cliffs of Moher. He was pleasant, a great driver, and had lots of local knowledge that made our day much more enjoyable. Sean in the office helped us plan our day over the phone from New York. Highly recommended!
