Customised Group Tours of Ireland

Dady Brothers Tour of Ireland

Peter, 

dady Brothers TourWords cannot express our level of appreciation.
Your hard work making each day a memorable occasion. We really appreciated the varied daily activities -from abbeys to churches to farmhouses, to boat rides to castles to pubs. Mostly we enjoyed your background knowledge of the varied places which was always communicated with a touch of Irish humor. We know it didn’t just happen and you were behind the scenes coordinating each activity. We certainly enjoyed your skillful driving – some of it in reverse! If you ever plan to be in the US to visit John and Joe, keep us in mind. We would get great pleasure in sharing a Guinness with you and the lads.

Sincere regards – Tom and Cecelia, Dady Brothers Tour.

Carol Reed Annual Tour of Ireland

IMG_1477James, 

John and I had a wonderful time! We have heard nothing but great things from everyone that was in our group. Everyone prefered the smaller towns and country areas of Donegal and Connemara, to big cities like Dublin and Belfast. We ended up finding a pub that we loved and seen many of the the beautiful sites in Ireland. We are discussing with Carol about our next group tour as it is the only way to travel in Ireland.

God Bless, Molly Kaklamanis (Group Leader) Carol Reed Annual Tour of Ireland. 

Dear Peter,

We wanted to write a note to let you know how much we appreciated your understanding of our situation and refunding our trip to Ireland.

These days too many companies talk about how much they care, but you proved that you have a commitment to your customers. If anyone asks about our experience with you, be sure we will share our positive thoughts on your caring and customer service. Thanks again for your commitment to your customers!

tom gagnonDear Brack Tours, 

Just returned from a 10 day group tour arranged by Brack Tours, hosted by Brian Corcoran with Peter Clarke as our driver and guide. 3 nights in Galway, 3 nights in Killarney and 3 nights in Dublin with day trips each day for sightseeing. Peter is knowledgeable when it comes to the sights and history of Ireland , he’s a story-teller extraordinaire, and he was instrumental in making this such a memorable tour. I highly recommend Brack Tours!.

Enchanted Ireland Tour with Fr Ed.Sheridan

Peter,

Our trip to and from Ireland was absolutely picture perfect. Peter and clients 2After last tour two years ago, I was a little nervous. It couldn’t have been better this time, like clockwork. The whole trip was fabulous. I didn’t realize the Glenveagh Natural Park was going to be so far a drive, but it was still good to see something new and I did love the Glenveagh Castle. Thank you for all you did to make it work like clockwork. I know you must have been pulling some strings along the way. It was good to see you again, thanks for joining us for breakfast.

Testimonial from Diane Brennan (group leader), Enchanted Ireland Tour

Dear Peter,

Nick and I just wanted to thank you again for being our tour guide in your beautiful country! You made the journey especially enjoyable with your wealth of information, sense of humor, and genuine kindness. We know that the planning and coordination of 30 people on a bus is not easy, but you made it seem flawless. If we ever return to Ireland (and I hope we do), we will most definitely request you.

Spirit of Ireland Tour with Fr Ed.Sheridan

Brack Tours, 

This was our first bus tour anywhere and we were concerned about the logistics of nearly 50 people being transported around Ireland for 12 days. with Peter as our driver/guide/historian and comedian, WOW! what a great experience and this has made us speak with friends who have thought about visiting Ireland and we told them they should strongly consider a group tour with Brack Tours.

Kathy & Don Goessel, Spirit of Ireland Tour with Fr Ed Sheridan. 

Good Morning,

What wonderful memories we have of our trip to Ireland. Peter was a delight, we certainly were well take of. I was very happy with the tour, it was certainly more than expected. We were a congenial group, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Nancy Austin, Spirit of Ireland Tour with Fr Ed Sheridan. 

Dear Brack Tours,

My wife and I felt this was the BEST tour we have taken! (Past Tauck Tours x 3). Fr.Eds gentle and humble presence, Diane and BJ’s organizational skills, Peter Clarke’s vast knowledge of Ireland and his great humor and congeniality and the helpful Brack Staff (Nuala Saul) made it a delight. The great itinerary, beautiful weather and our group (despite 47 strong) contributed a lot. Meeting Fr.Ed’s cousins and seeing 2 of my wife’s cousins not to mention lots of interaction with the Irish people made it much more than a “sightseeing” trip. THANK YOU ALL!

Jeff and Bea Russell, Spirit of Ireland Tour with Fr Ed Sheridan. 

Hi Peter, 

Geof and I sure did have a GREAT time on your tour last week! Must say it was an adjustment not to hear your cheery, ” Good Morning Everybody” when we got up!!! Don’t know how the tour could have been any better. We loved all of your commentary and historical background, jokes, music, personal attention to every detail, and just getting to know you! Thanks again for getting m Nook reader in time! We lucked out with the weather as well. God was on our side for the tour!! The only down side to the tour, and this wasn’t your fault, but we needed MORE TIME!! You just want us to come, I know. He He He!!( That is you Laughing!!) Ireland really is a beautiful and photographic country, best of all were the friendly people – lovely. I hope we can come back one day and we wish you every success with the business. You do a great job! You da man! Now, “Get outta here”!!

Mike Mone’s Tour of Ireland

Peter,

Mike mone Trip IrelandAnn and I want to thank you for being so great on the Mone’s Tour of Ireland October 4th through October 14th. This was our first trip to Ireland and we had a very nice time. You and Mike, and I’m sure Sheila assisted too, put a wonderful tour together and you are certainly the best tour guide Ann and I have had. We wanted to thank you for making our trip so enjoyable. Like the Hartaman’s said to us, “I would not come over to Ireland and tour with anyone other than Peter, he’s the best”. We agree.

St.Brigid’s Sports Club

Peter,

Just returned from a wonderful visit to Ireland with the St. Brigid’s Sports Club, South Boston, MA, USA. The Bracktours trip was made ever so extraordinary because of the remarkable assistance of your tour operations manager, Nuala Saul and Sinead Greaney of your staff. Bus 2 Group PhotoThe professionalism, attitude, style and grace of these two women is outstanding and an asset to your company.While we were in Ireland my sisters and I needed to have the original certified copies of our grandparent’s birth certificates because we hope to obtain dual citizenship and an Irish Passport. We had all of the required information of the dates and towns where they were born, but because of time constraints on the tour, we would not be able to arrive at the Registrar’s Office in Galway before closing time on a Friday. Both Nuala and Sinead went out of their way to assure that we would indeed acquire the documentation that was important to us by going to the authorities and securing the documents. The service that they performed went above and beyond what was hoped for because they made a difficult and unattainable task seem easy and uncomplicated. Nuala and Sinead are definite assets to your company.

Ireland Day 1 Killarney (32)Brack Tours, 

“Still on tour with Peter Clark…having a wonderful time. Leaving Solis Lough Eske Castle in Donegal tomorrow and heading for Derry followed by Belfast and then home. These 2 weeks have been amazing with my family. The 6 of us Americans have had the time of our lives. Highly recommended way to visit Ireland. Peter knows his stuff, is very accommodating and makes you feel right at home. He is also very funny and a master storyteller. He is passionate about Ireland and his business.

“Testimonial from Pat McParland, Highlights of Ireland Tour & Private Chauffeur Driven Tour”

Sinead,
I just wanted to take a few minutes to write and express our thoughts regarding our tour of Ireland . We had an AMAZING experience, Ireland is a beautiful country, and a photographer’s delight. Our enjoyment of this tour was greatly increased due to our Driver/Guide, D.B. We found him to be very knowledgeable and likeable. His sense of humor was a great addition and a bonus.
Sincerely Mark and Missy Huling ( Don & Penny Barnes Tour of Ireland ) 

Nuala, 

I just returned from a Brack Tour of Ireland and there aren’t enough words to describe the wonderful time I had. Everything was taken care of for us which made the trip all that much better. We had the best coach driver in DB O’Connor. I wouldn’t think twice about doing another tour with this company. In fact I’m already looking forward to next year with Brack Tours and Penny & Don Barnes.

Carol Cricenti, (Don & Penny Barnes Tour of Ireland) 

Brack Tours,

We just wanted to get back to you and tell you what a wonderful time we had in Ireland.  Pat was a wonderful driver, and we were blessed with beautiful weather.   Thank you so much for setting up such a wonderful itinerary!

Brian and Cheryl Pacious

Nuala,

My family and I had a wonderful trip. Our driver Jim O’Shea went above and beyond his call to find my family. I want to thank Mary Ann Coon for the hard work which made this all possible. It was a trip my grandchildren and I will not forget.

Theresa Frer

Nuala,

OMG…It was GREAT!!!!!

What a FANTASTIC job you did on having everything so organized for us! Everyone in the family was so impressed with how smoothly the whole trip ran. From the flights, to the hotel staff waiting for us and greeting us with our keys and taking our luggage the minute we stepped off the coach bus, to having our attraction tickets ahead of time, dinner reservations all made ahead to accommodate our schedule…It was amazing! Every hotel was beautiful, accommodating and so clean. McGrail ClanThank you so much!Peter is an amazing tour guide, very kind, pleasant and so knowledgeable! Going with Bracktours is the ONLY way to travel in Ireland! We are now spoiled and will never travel any other way! We could relax, have some drinks in a pub in not worry about driving on those narrow roads (and on the “wrong side” of the road!).I cannot thank you enough for all of the countless hours you put into making this trip the ultimate vacation for my family (plus all of “pain in the ass” questions you tirelessly answered for us). This trip literally brought the family together again. We had such fun bonding and creating such wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. Even Ann said, “I never thought I would be at a pub having a Guinness with my grandchildren!” The grand kids now have such a bond with “Nana” as they have never seen her in that light before and loved drinking with her. Such fun! I really think everybody needs to know how wonderful Bracktours is and I will not be happy until I can do this for you and Peter. You so deserve to be recognized for the professionals you are. Everyone needs to know that having your own coach and driver is worth every penny! It is what made the trip!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Testimonial from The McGrail Clan

Nuala,

I waited a day to write this because I had to comprehend just how perfect a vacation we as a family had. Its certainly not easy to move six people together over an est. 8,000 miles without so much as a hitch. photoWhen you have a professional on the team to mix the recipe and bake the cake you have the perfect desert. We are so impressed how all the pieces fell into place Barb, myself and the kids are smiling ear to ear. Of course we do understand it all didn’t happen with one or two phone calls, emails and texts but with your constant attention to detail, understanding our needs with a large group and achieving perfection. Clearly not easy in today’s world to satisfy people who travel and the limitations that you must face. No complaints here and again I want to thank you for your hard work and for making our time together during our holiday something to remember for a lifetime.

Thanks so very much,

Warmest regards Billy, Barbara, Michael, Sarah, Colin, Brendan ( The Ronayne Family) 

Nuala, 

Sorry for the delay in this e-mail but I am just getting back to reality. I want to thank you so much for such a wonderful trip. Everything was perfect!! The whole family had so much fun, the accommodations were amazing, the location was great, the cleanliness and comfort of the apartment were fabulous. All of our transfers were prompt and more than friendly. We can’t thank you enough for the effort you put into making our trip the best ever!! We truly appreciate your effort and close attention to detail. We will definitely be sharing your name with as many people that will listen. Lastly, the welcome package you left for us could not have been more perfect. You truly thought of everything.

Best regards, John, Trish, John, Jillian & Chris Galofaro ( The Galofaro Family) 

Mansfield FamilyDear Sinead, 

I wanted to send along a special note to you.  Our trip was better than expected.  Your beautiful country, our itinerary that took us along the coast of Ireland from Dublin to Belfast to Ballyliffin and back around through Cork, Galway and Killarney was spectacular.  Dennis Carroll was a perfect tour guide who listened and guided us.   I do recall requesting an Irishman who was witty, smart, informative and flexible and he fit the bill to perfection. A million Thank You’s for making this a family trip of a lifetime.  We will talk about our trip for years to come.  Please feel free to share!

Best regards, Marie (Duffy) Mansfield (The Mansfield & Duffy Family) 

Self Drive Tours of Ireland

Nuala,

I just wanted to write you a note to say thanks for everything.  We had a fantastic time.  The castle was especially fun, they bumped us up to part of the presidential suite in the castle itself, and between it and the spa we didn’t end up leaving the day we were there.  Really it was all great though, thanks again for everything.

Mr & Mrs Byram (Honeymoon Couple)

Peter,

I would like to thank you and your staff for a wonderful self-drive tour of Ireland. Your staff has done nothing but go above and beyond the call of duty to help us plan exactly what we wanted to do. Someone was always there to answer our questions, take care of the many changes we made in our plans. I cannot say enough about the wonderful service you provided us and your suggestions have always been spot on perfect! Our hotels were magnificent and the service was fabulous. We can’t wait to book our next trip with you!

Ancestry Tours of Ireland

Brack Tours, 

The O’Neill Clan gathering tour. It surpassed all my expectations . The friendliness of Nuala and Peter and all on the tour was so wonderful. The accommodation was fantastic and every meal. IMG_3493The trips to historical sites ,the procession through I think Dungannon the BBQ, the music, the singing. Thank you for going out of your way to find a sports shop, so I could buy some souvenirs. I loved when Peter drove us down an obscure country lane and took us on a walk to see the Proleek Portal tomb, just sitting on the edge of a golf course. A 3000 BC structure with just us there and no barriers ,amazing.When we drove through Carlingford on the way back to Dublin and the young man who had been videoing at the O’Neill event , was there and sang to us as a farewell. These were just some of the moments that made it so special.I can’t wait to come back to Ireland. Thank you so much for making me feel at home and looking after us so well.
Fondest Regards, Lynne O’Neill, O’Neill Clan Gathering Ireland
