The trip to Ireland was fabulous!!!  

Michael Payne is an excellent guide/driver.  He is quite knowledgable and just a delight.
We felt like we were visiting with a favorite uncle.  I would definitely ask for him again whenever we visit Ireland.  I highly recommend him.  We would like to say hello to Michael and thank him again.



Good Day, We are back in the USA & had a wonderful time in your BEAUTIFUL country. It was a wonderful experience to bring our children & grandchildren to the land of their ancestors.

Michael Payne was Brilliant !!!!  Full of history & interesting places for us to see. Some we had not even thought of, he is certainly a treasure to keep on board for many years to come.


Thank you for making our trip a fabulous memory !                             Kathleen Cahill ( tour July 30th )



Just a short note to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to beautiful Ireland.  One of the highlights of our trip was the 9 days that we spent with our driver, Gerry Russell.  Gerry’s knowledge, good humor, experience and driving skills totally enhanced our holiday experience.  Feel free to use me for a reference for Gerry anytime, it would be my pleasure to share our completely positive experience while with him.

 Sincerely,Bob Puttick 2013


My husband and I recently completed a tour of Ireland. As part of our package, Gerry Russell was our driver and tour guide. We cannot say enough about how he made our trip all that it was. Gerry was knowledgeable, humorous, thoughtful and a delight to spend the better part of 9 days with.

We highly recommend him and will be more than happy to provide a reference for him. We count ourselves lucky to have crossed paths with Gerry.

Kind regards,

  Just want to let you know how much we appreciated the service provided by Kinsale Executive Travel.  The professionalism and level of service was outstanding and we will certainly  harbor no reservations in recommending you to friends who travel to Ireland.  I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention just how much Anthony contributed to our overall experience.  He was knowledgeable about the areas we drove through and he kept us laughing the entire time, something that my sisters and I appreciate tremendously.  You have a real gem of a driver there!
All the best,

I can't think of a better way to see Ireland! The van was so comfortable and relaxing and our driver, Tim Murphy, absolutely made the trip! He fit in perfectly with our family and he was so knowledgeable but never boring. We are so blessed to have come across your company and also to have been assigned Tim. Our trip was so much more than we ever dreamed it could be thanks to your company and our driver and new friend Tim. Your itinerary recommendations worked out perfectly and Tim was able to always help us manage our schedule. We can't wait to come back. God bless and keep you. Thank you so much.


Just a quick note of thanks for your help with the planning and delivery of our recent golf tour.  Everything went off without a hitch and it was all first class - golf and accommodation.  It was a lot of golf over the two weeks, but getting to play such great courses is something that we wanted to achieve and will live with us all forever.
Please again pass on our thanks Pat whose "can do" attitude and organisational skills really made travelling around Ireland a pleasure. 
Now time to get back to work and family life before we even consider in a few years .......where to golf next.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your help in planning our Ireland trip.  We were in Ireland from 8/29-9/6 and had a wonderful trip.  I especially wanted to let you know that our driver, Patrick Doherty, was the best.  He was extremely helpful with setting our itineraries each day and recommendations. He was always extremely prompt, courteous, and a pleasure to be with.  He helped make our trip a fantastic experience.  We will recommend you to anyone we know planning a similar trip.  We would also highly recommend Patrick.  Thanks again!  Erin Ross

We want to just comment on our recent experience with your company.
From June 11 – 20, eight of us from the U.S. were fortunate enough to have Gordon as our coach driver as we undertook an eight-day visit arranged for us by North and East Golf Tours.  Apart from outstanding performance of his main duty – transporting us safely, comfortably and timely to and from our various destinations and coordinating drop offs and pickups of golfers and non-golfers – he also personally (and on his own initiative) solved a couple of significant problems which could have really interfered with our program:  picking up two of our party whose flight was seriously delayed; and dealing with a lost set of golf clubs.  In both these cases, Gordon willingly sacrificed some of his “off” time in order to make certain that our vacation proceeded as seamlessly as possible.  We all really, really appreciated it.
As an extra benefit, Gordon turned out to be a wonderful tour guide, with his ability to describe to us the areas we were driving through, together with elements of Irish history and contemporary politics.  So, happily, we were also never bored during our travels from place to place and gained additional perspective on the areas we were visiting.
Gordon was a pleasure to travel with and all of us now think of him less as a driver and more as a friend we made in Ireland who was kind enough to show us his country.  He’s a real asset to Kinsale Executive Travel and a wonderful ambassador for the Emerald Isle.  We hope these comments, though inarticulate, convey how much we appreciated his efforts on our behalf and how much we enjoyed having him with us. 
Kind regards,
Tony and Karen Annoni

Dear Joanne,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you what a great employee you have with Kinsale Executive Travel. 

I had the pleasure of spending last week as our group tour guide during my first visit to Ireland &, suffice it to say, he exceeded any & all expectations I had related to anticipated customer service.

Everything he did for our group was A++. His job skills & competencies, his knowledge, along with his sheer dedication & commitment to his job, are to be commended.

Job well done & a great time.


John O'Connor & Karen Short

I just wanted to add my accolades for Kinsale Executive Travel. Whom went beyond the call of duty to solve every problem encountered, and made us all feel welcome and well treated during our visit. I was the person who scheduled the trip with North and West Golf, and I admit I was a bit nervous about what to expect with the coach and driver. If we plan another trip, we will certainly be back to Kinsale Executive Travel.
Bruce Hamilton


Thank you so much for taking us on the best vacation we have had, ever!!!
Many happy returns!

My group from Texas spent a wonderful time in Ireland due to the expertise of your driver/ guide. He was an excellent driver. He was extremely patient with us and attended to our every need. We enjoyed our time with him and felt extremely safe and well cared for. We told him we were going to tell you about all the things he had done wrong , but we couldn't think of one. He was great, a great ambassador for your country and your company. Tell him again how much we appreaciated all he did for us.

Hello Joanne,
I have been meaning to drop a note to let you know how pleased we all were with the services of Kinsale Limos on our recent trip.  There is no doubt we chose the best way to see Ireland by hiring your bus and driver for the week.  The bus was very roomy, clean and comfortable.  The luggage storage was excellent and eliminated much excess baggage handling from hotel to hotel.   
Everyone in our group of nine agreed perhaps the best part of our visit was having Gordon as our driver.  Ever the consummate professional, Gordon not only provided safe transport but he regaled us with tales and historical facts about the people and places we visited.  Indeed, Gordon further enhanced our trip by suggesting some stops we had not planned in our itinerary.   We highly recommend Kinsale Executive Travel Coach and Limousine Hire to any group visiting Ireland.  It was a pleasure working with you on our arrangements. Thanks to both driver & you for making our visit the trip of a lifetime!

Best Regards,
Bill Donovan


We just arrived back in NY and I couldn't wait to send you this email regarding your company and Mike Kennelly. You are wonderful - you were so helpful when I was arranging our reservation and Mike Kennelly - is absolutely fabulous! He was so nice, had so much knowledge of the Kerry countryside and just all out a pleasure to talk and ride with. We thanked him but please let him know again how much we appreciated all the driving he did for us. If we ever know of anyone going over to Ireland that needs a car service, we will HIGHLY recommend Kinsale Executive Travel and Mike Kennelly - your company and staff are absolutely wonderful!!!

Please forward or share this with your driver, Jimmy Wolfe, who recently drove the Allegheny golf team through southwestern Ireland.
Jimmy, many thanks for your friendly service and quick wit.  You made the trip more enjoyable for all of us.  This picture is of you and my daughter, Elizabeth, when we were at Doonbeg.
All the best,



Our holiday, was wonderful.  We have just returned to Canada & want to tell you that Michael Canelli not only drove us in your comfortable bus, but he looked after us beautifully & entertained us all. 
His knowledge of the history of Ireland is amazing.  Michael was terrific, he made our vacation so enjoyable.
When we return to see your beautiful country again, we hope that he is available.  Thank you for all,
Elaine & Allen Smith. 




We all enjoyed our tours and the time with Anthony.  Thank you for arranging the great weather.





We had a very wonderful vacation traveling in Ireland. Many thanks for your help putting it all together. Also, let me say that Jim Healy is now “one of the family”. He tells a good story, is a great driver, and sings a lovely tune! What more could one ask for? He most definitely made our trip a memory of a lifetime. Lastly, I want to tell Damien how much I appreciated him driving up to Killarney to meet me and my family. I know it was a difficult drive home for him with the snow.  So, all the best, and until our next visit, we will be thinking and dreaming of Ireland.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a great holiday.  Thanks for your organization.
Jim was incredible.  Great driver, great source of information, great singer and great person.




 Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know what a great job Jim did with our group.  He is a first class gentleman and I would love to have him on our next trip.  He was a pleasure to deal with and represented your company exceptionally well.

Kindest regards,

Kevin Boylan

On September 8th we were on a private tour with your company.  Our driver was Damian.  He picked us up in Cork and drove us to Kinsale and other places.  He showed us many wonderful things, but the most special thing we saw in all of Ireland was the Garden of Remembrance dedicated to the firefighters who lost their lives in our country on 9/11/2001.
I have shown my picture of this place to many people and they all want to know exactly where this is located.  We were on the way to Kinsale, but I'm not sure if that would be the exact location.  Can you please tell me the name of the village or county where it is located?
The day we spnt with Damian was one of the best we spend in Ireland.
Debbie Tillman




I just wanted to send you a quick note about my experience with your company. We had a wonderful experience and the day trip was one of the highlights of our trip. Our driver Mal was outstanding. He was informative, helpful, and an all around pleasure. Due to the weather he offered some great alternative suggestions on places we might like to see. He made our trip a success!

Thank you for the professional manner you handled our reservation. I would use your company again and would recommend it to anyone in the area. Thanks again to both you and Mal!

Kinsale Executive Travel and Limousine Hire service is a “terrific” way to see Ireland or to be picked-up from the airport. Damien and his staff are reliable, courteous and always on-time. It is a much better way to “relax on your vacation or business trip” while traveling in Ireland…and much safer!

Many thanks for the stellar performance....throughout this special event. These were people who are used to great service from all and you stepped up to their expectations. I can honestly say you were there for everyone whenever needed and showed great flexibility when circumstances resulted in momentary changes. There is a great distance between you, your people and your nearest competitor.

We will see you soon.

Hi Angela and Damien!
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service that you provided us on our trip to Ireland. We thoroughly enjoyed the great tour that Damien gave us - it was so informative and entertaining. With the limited amount of time we had to visit, we did not want to waste any time finding our way around and this was a wonderful way to enjoy the sights - and in comfort and style! We will recommend you to anyone we can and would definitely use your service again. And Damien - thanks for listening to us go on about the cousins. Hopefully that's not causing too much of a stir - for his sake as well.

Thanks again!
Nancy DeSena



Just want to let you know that your service was more than satisfactory. Mal was not only exceedingly gracious and flexible with the rescheduling of our days (and his own personal life); he was a thoughtful and informed guide, and a most pleasant traveling companion.

Dearest Damien, I wanted to take the time to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such good care of us while we visited your beautiful country. Our friends at Mohawk really had the Luck of the Irish when they found you! The trip wouldn't have been the same without you. As a business executive, I have to tell you how wonderfully refreshing it is to meet people who possess the passion that you have for your work. Even more impressive is the way you have turned that passion into a thriving business that will continue to grow and be successful. On a personal note, the best part of any adventure is making new friends! I feel fortunate to have made one of you! Cheers!

Hi Carmel,

Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful service we received on our wedding day. The drivers were so professional and provided such a high standard service for us. We had a wonderful day.

In particular I would like to thank the driver of the bridal car, he was a lovely man and completely put me and my parents at ease. We couldn't have asked for a better service. We would recommend your company without hesitation.

Kind regards,
Patrick & Janine


Dear Carmel,

I just wanted to drop you a quick thank you email for organising our Limo for our Wedding on 6th June 2008. All went really well on the day and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Thanks again,
