Both drivers were exceptional. Our return flight was delayed by 7 hours and we were very worried the Bus would leave without us however Mike waited... More

Our driver Mike was AMAZING! He met us at the airport in Cork and drove us all week around Cork, Doolin, Belfast, and Dublin along with many other stops. He knew great, helpful information at each stop and was so nice to all of us. I highly recommend using their buses, ours was so comfortable and even had outlets so... More

I'm the Captain of the Handball team of UCC. We travelled all the year with Butlers. The office staff was always kind and helpful. The drivers friendly and professional. All the buses in perfect conditions and comfortable. We will definitely use Butlers next season too!

This was our second time using Butlers with our university study tour group, first in March 2016 and again in March 2017. The drivers are courteous, helpful, and always on time. The coaches are always clean and spacious. My quote was very competitive both times and I see no reason to jump to another bus company next time I'm planning... More

Travelled to Cardiff and Bristol with a group of youth players on Butlers Coaches. Prior to going the office couldn't have been more helpful making a potentially difficult process extremely easy. Once we left we were driven by John Donovan who was fantastic. He treated the players with respect and understanding, he was extremely helpful in planning our time to... More

No, really, the driver was great, he was very nice and he did a great guide job. He explained a lot of things about the places we visited, even when were making a lot noise. He also sang a couple of songs and it was astonishing, trust me.

Our driver, John O'Donovan, put up with over 50 of us college students and was so great! He told us all about the history of each place we went. He adapted to our schedule and we got to see so much in just 2 days of touring Kerry, Ireland. I would definitely recommend traveling with him and this company :)

My wife and I and one other couple did an 11 day customized tour of the Island. The mini-van was top notch, and our driver/historian was Michael Power. You could not ask for a better driver than Michael. Michael is passionate about Ireland, curious as much or more than we were, and was willing to make out trip extra special.... More
