What Our Clients Say

  • Testimonial
    Diana Beresford-Kroeger, Wings Worldquest Fellow, Canada

    Dermot Buckley is a friend and compatriot of Ireland. He holds a unique lens into the vision of the country. Yes, you will enjoy his company. And yes, you will love his poetry. As an Irishman he will ride the wind off the mountains and the mist off the sea to keep you safe and comfortable. He is a man with a passion for his country in all its beauty, poetry, history and charm. He is a true Irishman.

    Barbara Luke, Colorado, USA

    I attribute our fabulous ten days in Ireland to Dermot, as our tour guide. Your organization and exceptional attention to details, coupled with your humor, made for an amazing vacation. Your passion for the history and people of your country was outstanding. You made history live! Our accommodations and your choices of eating establishments were also outstanding. As I observed the other tour guides on our tour I am convinced D.B. Custom Tours Ireland is the best. It made all the difference between a trip to Ireland and a trip of a lifetime!

  • Testimonial
    Judy Coon, Colorado, USA

    Dermot, You are "simply the best", but I'll try to say more. I appreciate the immense amount of assistance you gave us with a group whom were so very diverse. We ranged in age from 9 - 83. Each activity was of interest to ALL. The eleven days flew by. You were able to quickly and efficiently alter plans for us when necessary. It was amazing. You were there to assist each person, "personally". I don't know how you did that! Your sense of humor is something we all enjoyed. We all loved you dearly. Many thanks!

  • Testimonial
    Steve Mechanic, New York, USA

    During our visit to Ireland, we were fortunate to enlist the services of Dermot Buckley Jnr. from D.B. Custom Tours Ireland. I want to personally thank you for all the extra effort you put into making our golf trip in Ireland memorable, fun and successful. I can say, without hesitation, that the success of our trip was a direct result of your efforts. Your co-ordination of our travel arrangements, local knowledge and unflagging professionalism was outstanding. I cannot imagine taking another trip to the Emerald Isle without hiring you and would advise anyone going to Ireland to book your services without hesitation.

  • Testimonial
    Dan & Kathi Keck, Yakima, Washington

    Our golfing tour began in Shannon, Ireland through Northern Ireland and ended in St. Andrews, Scotland. During our entire journey all travellers were highly impressed with the outstanding accommodations and new 9-passenger motor coach stocked with snacks and beverages. All 8 people who traveled on this golfing journey commented that it was above and beyond their expectations. Over and over again comments were made like "this is awesome" and "this experience is great". One person who has travelled the world said, "Now this is the way to travel".

    We went on a trip of a lifetime to Ireland. Our driver guide Dermot was fantastic. It was great to experience Ireland with Dermot as he is personal, professional and, as the Irish say, "we had mighty good craic!". We can't wait to come back. This time will be forever remembered.

  • Testimonial
    The Flynn Family, Michigan, USA

    Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our 9 day trip through Ireland. Your service was exemplary, advice sagely (even if you did have to repeat it a couple of times), and patience endless. Lodging and travel was first class and very well planned out. Really appreciate you getting us off the beaten path. We’ve done quite a bit of guided travel over the years and we can truly say you are one of the best.

  • Testimonial
    Magner Family, USA

    We had a wonderful time! My six sisters thoroughly enjoyed the whole Ireland experience and we could not have had a better driver! DJ was excellent - patient, accommodating, entertaining and so very knowledgeable about every aspect of Ireland. We all plan to return again and you can be sure that we will be in contact with D.B.Custom Tours Ireland. I add my own personal thanks to you for your help and patience with the planning of our tour.

  • Testimonial
    Murphy Family, USA

    Ireland is an amazingly beautiful country and your company's tremendous care and service made it all the better! Our tour of Ireland was one of the best family vacations ever and the itinerary you crafted for us was perfect. From the quality of the vehicle, to the selected accommodations to the guidance on restaurants in every city (as well as a few places to find a perfect pint of Guinness or Murphy's) every detail was exceptional. As for our driver, DJ, if he's not already designated an official "Irish Treasure," he should be! He was the finishing touch that helped create great memories that will last a lifetime!

  • Testimonial
    Tauber Family, New York

    Just to let you know how lucky we were to have you as our guide. I could not think of a better match for my family. You managed to fit right in with all our personalities and become part of the family. Without you there we may never have made it out of Dublin, let alone made it all 11 days in a car together by ourselves! You made our trip to Ireland truly special, enjoyable and memorable for all of us. You have a gift and we are so happy that we got to experience it.

  • Testimonial
    Jim & Tina Sherbert, with Keck Group

    Again, thank you for being such a gracious and informed host during our visit to both Ireland and Scotland. Your personal attention to detail, and more importantly, your ability and willingness to "dig in" and drive corrective actions when conflicts or mistakes were made by hotels or eating establishments was impressive. Everything came off seamlessly with little involvement from us, making this a very hassle free two week trip, in spite of our broad based agenda.

  • Testimonial
    Patrick S. Donahue, President, Donahue Schriber Realty Group

    Thanks to everyone for their work in putting together the trip of a lifetime. The accommodations, logistics and planning were superb. Every day was an adventure as we saw “the real Ireland". The best decision we made was to leave all the driving to you guys. The value of this approach was priceless. We saw an Ireland that only the locals know and were always in the right restaurant or pub to fit the occasion. This approach and D.B.Custom Tours Ireland get my highest recommendation.
