Let Us Show You What Our Customers Are Saying

"Best decision we made! We were a party of 12 and at the last minute we decided to cancel our car rentals and rent a coach bus. I worked with Sean to schedule the van and set our itinerary. It was the best decision we made, we would have never been able to manage driving the streets on our own. Sean drove us hours a day and answered our endless questions. He helped us see the best parts of each town and kept us on a schedule to maximize our time. Would recommend him and his company to anyone coming to Ireland! "

"Thank you Sean and Michael!! I was a part of a 14 person group (13 adults, 1 infant) that traveled from Dublin-Kilkenny-Cork-Kinsale-Dingle-Liscannor-Galway and all I can say is Wow! Sean helped immensely with the planning of our trip and took very good care of us for the first couple days we were there. Michael took the reigns after Sean left on vacation and he was such a treat. He was an extremely skilled driver, very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and was hilarious to boot! He played Irish music for us at each stop and explained the history of each town which was very enjoyable. Michael is a lovely person and genuinely cared about our experience in his home country. He even gave my 9 month old daughter a couple gifts on our last day for being so well behaved! A classy move from a classy guy! Thank you so much to both of you for making our visit to Ireland a trip of a lifetime. You made everything so much easier for us and we could not have driven some of those roads without you! I will not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone I know that will be visiting Ireland in the foreseeable future. Sláinte!! "

""Wonderful trip!! Our first trip to Ireland was simply fantastic. We arrived in Shannon to be promptly met by Stephen Butler Coaches. Our driver and tour guide Sean went above and beyond to give us the best possible experience! Sean was prompt and flexible- with excellent restaurant suggestions... always a priority for me. And- he was a skilled driver! Every day was packed with beautiful scenery and great stops!! Thanks, Sean, for a great visit. We hope to be back- we will definitely go with Stephen Butler Coaches! And a shout out to Roger who spent a day with us on the tour telling funny jokes and keeping us entertained."

""Great company highly recommended!! Coach transfer from Dublin to Cork and back, what a great company to deal with. The service, personal attention and genuine care for our group was exceptional!!! We had a large group from USA with my customers from Tire Rack and Porsche NA, the transfer coach was like new, very clean. Will definitely use Stephen Butler Coach in the future!!!"
