Gillian, Thank you for your help with all of the above and the last minute changes. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Carolan Coach Hire from start to finish. We had a couple of schedule changes, yet each time Carolan Coaches were there to assist. Their drivers were all nice, helpful and very punctual. We will be 100% using this service again.



The Oxford University Rugby Football Club visited Dublin for a fixture with Trinity College, and Carolan Coaches provided an excellent service to us From the original booking to the pick-ups and drop-offs, the staff were courteous, friendly and efficient and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone visiting Dublin.

I participated in the Pilgrimage around Ireland with St John of Shanghai Belfast. We were driven by Michael Hughes.

Michael was calm, polite, organised and attentive. He drove us safely and kept us to our timetable.

Michael has a very pleasant and engaging manner and was very easy to chat to. His customer service skills are excellent.

I just wish to commend the professional service which Michael provided and would not hesitate in recommending him or Carolan Coaches to other prospective customers.

Once again thank you, Michael’s driving ensured we had a wonderful holiday with no concerns.

With Best wishes.

We recently had the pleasure of touring Ireland with Carolan Coaches. We had a wonderful experience from the moment we landed in Dublin until our sad departure. We were treated to a wonderful trip with visits to the usual and definitely the lesser well known but more beautiful sites of Ireland. Their knowledge and advice was crucial in planning our itinerary and the service was better than we expected. Their driver Jason could not have been more professional and helpful and his knowledge of the country was amazing. We can’t wait to return.
