Deirdre was fantastic. Not only did she drive us safely on all the narrow roads but she also took us to sights we would never have seen on our own. Her knowledge and pride about Ireland and her home area of Dingle really came through. Her efforts to help connect to distant relatives was beyond extraordinary. I highly recommend a driver and tour guide to remove stress from your trip. Definitely would hire Deirdre.

Deirdre provided us with a day we will never forget! Do yourself a favour and book this tour!!! We saw SO MUCH in one day! Not only did she drive us through stunning mountain scenes and beautiful ocean views, but she told us stories, played music, and even taught us a few phrases to say in Irish. She even took us to the most western bar in Ireland to have a drink and help us plan out the drive for the rest of our stay. We loved having our own private tour and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Out tour guide Deirdre was on time (in fact early) to “meet” my virtual tour. She was well informed both with the current local information and with historical background. Even though the weather wasn’t great the day of our tour, Deidre made out trip interesting and enjoyable. I strongly suggest getting the cinnamon roll recipe from her as well!
