We finally made it to Ireland and it was more than we had hope for!”
It had always been my dream to visit Ireland, not only to meet my cousins in Mayo but also to see the land where my grandfather was born. After two failed attempts, we chose Liana Falconer of All Ireland Chauffeur Tours to plan our 16-day trip which ended May 29th, 2017.
Liana’s attention to detail, her understanding of our level of comfort and her impeccable organization made this trip, which could have been stressful, a dream vacation. Liana took care of bookings for nine hotels, dinner reservations for most places and put together an unforgettable itinerary. But wait! There’s more . . .
Our driver, James Falconer, was more than we could have hoped for or imagined! From the moment we met him, until our very last day, my husband and I kept saying how lucky we were to have had him as our guide. Our goal was to see as much of the west, south and east of Ireland as we could cram in and Jim made it all happen – effortlessly, or so it seemed.
Not only is Jim knowledgeable, he is witty, gracious, brilliant and more laughs than a barrel of monkeys. We learned so much about Ireland’s history, culture and traditions all while being carefully driven over tiny roads and cart paths which would make any American cry.
If you are planning a trip to Ireland and want to be sure you’re not missing the important sites AND don’t want to hazard the roads where trucks come face-to-face with your car (and you have to back down a one-lane mountain road) I strongly advise you to use this company. They have the experience, knowledge and understanding to make your trip the trip of a lifetime – they did it for us!
We plan on going back and will definitely use All Ireland Chauffeured Tours again.

We had a lovely trip, so much to see and do in Ireland! We enjoyed every minute and Liam was the best part of the experience.
We can’t thank you enough for your assistance in making this trip possible.
All of your insight and ideas were spot on. The topper was that Liam was instrumental in helping Gerry find his family homestead in Coraclare , it was the highlight of the week.
We had a string of good luck and spoke to the right people in the area. Liam kept on working on making sure we left no stone unturned on our final day. He found an old family friend who knew Gerrys dad and led us to his homestead sight. Quite an emotional end to a wonderful family trip we will remember for years!
Thanks so much!

We really enjoyed our visit and learned so much history about this interesting country. Liana was our contact person and I received a prompt and gracious reply from her, upon sending an information inquiry. She provided ideas and links to read about various important sites to see. I gave her basic info on what I wanted (i.e. Ashford Castle) and she coordinated all arrangements from hotels to dining and sites to see. Her father was our chauffeur and guide and he was the utmost gentleman with an endless amount of passion for Ireland. We enjoyed our short time, and wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend the many generation touring business. They were great , private guides, had exceptional transportation…clean, luxurious. Very pleased.

Upon a recommendation from a friend, we contacted Liana at All Ireland Chauffeur Tours to help arrange our 12 day visit to Ireland in May, 2016. Five of us were traveling together. Liana was most helpful and responsive to any questions or requests. We put together a list of sights and cities we wished to visit and she incorporated them and more and customized an outstanding itinerary for us. We were met at the airport by our driver and guide, Jim, who was wonderful! He shared his amazing knowledge of Irish history and love of his country. He kept us laughing with his story telling all while making sure that our days were filled with all we wished to experience at our own pace. Every accommodation was outstanding…we all feel that this was our best vacation ever and look forward to revisiting beautiful Ireland, but only with All Ireland Chauffeur Tours. Thank you Liana and Jim for a trip of a lifetime.
We enjoyed the trip and all the beutiful places that Liam took us. Liam was a joy ! We loved his company and all the stories that he told us. He was so easy going and was catering to all our needs and requests. The hotels that you chose for us were excellent , we enjoyed each one of them.I will definitely recommend you and your company and Liam.
Thank you very much .
We would just like to let you know that the idea of having a chauffeur drive us through Ireland was the best decision we made.
Your driver, John Walsh, was very professional, always on time, knowledgeable about facts, economy and history of your country. We had a most enjoyable three days spent with John, we have become friends. In other words, he was just excellent and we will not hesitate to recommend your company, and in particular John, to any of our friends that might be considering a trip to Ireland.

The tour with Paul was great. We had such a great time in Ireland with him. He’s such a pleasant guy to be around… Informative enough, but not overdoing it. Let us have some space when we needed it. He was such a great guy, and we were extremely happy with him. We would definitely recommend anyone we know going Ireland to book with you.
It was fabulous!!! Brendan was absolutely perfect for us! He was extremely knowledgeable about Irish history as well as sights that suited our interests. He was very flexible, had an awesome personality and was extremely professional, yet fun! We’d love to use him again when we return next year so I’ll definitely be back in touch when we start planning that trip. It was perfect!!!

Our trip to Ireland was lovely, thanks to Liana’s thoughtful planning & Jim’s knowledge of the emerald isle. The hotels that you reserved were perfect for our interests which included golf, fishing, & touring. Jim entertained us with his fascinating stories & delightful humor, like a witty history professor. He is a safe & punctual chauffeur- often I was glad he was behind the wheel on narrow hills, opposite side of the road for us yankees. For couples with different interests, the hubby can enjoy his sports while the wife can view castles or shop. I also rode a horse on the beach & had a hoot on a hawk walk. This was nicely coordinated! Jim had great suggestions for restaurants & tours. We had invaluable inside information for the Wild Atlantic way.
Lodge at Ashford Castle, Delphi Lodge, Trump Doonbeg: all had their special qualities, but our favorite was Park Hotel Kenmare since we could just walk into town to shop, eat, & listen to pub music.
Your kindness was our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
