What Touristy Travelers Are Saying About Us On Tripadvisor?

  • Alan and John picked us up promptly from the cruise terminal and took us to Dublin for the day. John was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all the interesting places he took our group. My husband asked him to take us off the beaten path to a true Irish Pub. WOW!!! He took us to Kavanagh’s Gravediggers and the experience was fantastic. Best Guinness ever! I would highly recommend you use Taxi Tour Ireland, contact Alan and John and you will have a fabulous experience in Dublin.

  • Alan picked us up from the Airport and took us on a Dublin city tour and a few “bonus” places. Had GREAT photo opportunities. Was not rushed at all. He knows Irish history so well, and is great at explaining it. He was very patient if we wanted to stop and eat, take pictures or ran some hot chocolate. His lovely wife even packed us a delicious homemade lunch for our journey to Galway. If you are looking for a personal and private customized tour THIS is the way to go. Thanks Alan!

  • We had Tony Murray as our driver for the day to take us from Dublin to Castlerea to meet some relatives we had recently discovered. It was a last minute addition to a family vacation we had planned, as we had just gotten in contact with these long lost relatives a month before, and prior to that had just discovered where our ancestors were from in Ireland. We had previously booked a tour of the spots we wanted to see, but Taxi Tours easily was able to accommodate the addition of us doing it with extra family members.
    We had a nasty time driving in England and Wales last year, so decided it would be best to hire someone to do the driving for us, since we had no idea what kind of roads we’d be in for. Tony picked us up at our hotel in Dublin. He was extremely nice and seemed genuinely interested in our family history. He picked up our relative in Castlerea and other family members followed us around as the cousin showed us all the important spots of our ancestors.
    It was our favorite day of our vacation!

  • Alan was referred to my by a good friend who had used his services previously. My daughter, Jamie and I were in Dublin for a quick overnight trip allowing for a total of 16 hours of touring time. We contacted Allen and he promptly picked us up at the airport and provided us with as much history and Irish experience as possible! I highly and enthusiastically recommend Alan and Taxi Tours Ireland!!
