COVID 19       During this difficult time for us all, we have decided to continue providing Tour Services.    Our vehicles are always regularly serviced and cleaned but we are taking extra precautions during The Corona Virus outbreak.  All the vehicle door handles, seat belts, and other points of contact are being sanitized before, during, and after each tour.  Sanitized wipes will be provided for you in our vehicles.    We understand, and appreciate, that many people will have justifiable reservations about booking a tour and yet want to be able to tour with us on arrival in Ireland so we are making temporary changes to our booking arrangements.  We are only taking a deposit of €75 regardless of the size of the vehicle or the duration of the tour. For bookings made now that subsequently need to cancel because of Corona Virus, we will refund 95% of the deposit provided we receive a minimum of 72 hours notice of cancellation. We will make the refund of 95% to you, or at your discretion hold the full deposit against a future booking.

On your guided tour your driver can bring you to The Rock of Cashel which is also known as Saint Patrick’s Rock and it is reputed that Saint Patrick converted King Aenghus to Christianity here in the 5th Century.

The Rock of Cashel is a spectacular group of Medieval buildings that are set on an outcrop of limestone in Tipperary’s Golden Vale. The buildings include a 12th century Round Tower, High Cross and Romanesque Chapel, 13th century Gothic Cathedral, 15th century Castle and the restored Hall of the Vicars Choral.  Attractions include an audio-visual show and exhibitions. It’s a site that is steeped in history and well worth a visit.

For more than 1,000 years the Rock was a symbol of Royal and Religious power it was the seat of Eóganacht Kings of Munster until rivalries saw Brian Boru, future High King of Ireland, take over in the 10th century. It was later granted to the Church and used even after 17th-century sacking by Cromwellian troops.

Guided Tours which last about 45 minutes are available but do check with site before visit as times may vary. The venue does have access for visitors with disabilities but it is by prior arrangement.

"While some travellers may think of this as an expensive option, a driver allows you to see so much more than a tour bus would, is relaxing, personalized and gets you off of the beaten path. Jim is a gentleman and a professional."
