“Michael Friel Coaches has given us excellent service. They are reliable, the prices are fair and they go well beyond what is expected in support of a customer. I have used them for a number of years and will continue to do so.”

“Our group used Michael Friel Coaches for our golfing vacation in Donegal and we couldn’t have been treated any better. We had Gavin and his father Michael driving us throughout our trip. They always arrived on time and answered any questions we had about the local area, so not only did we get great drivers, we also got great tour guides. And for those watching their pennies, the price was reasonable and the coach was very comfy. Thanks Gavin and Michael, you really where a great addition to our vacation in Donegal and we hope to use you again soon.”

Dave Walker – Toronto, Canada

“I have just returned to Australia after what has been a trip of a lifetime on a golf tour throughout the North West of Ireland. I was responsible for organizing the trip. Our trip was made so much more special by our designated driver and tour guide Gavin. Nothing was of any bother and I speak on behalf of all 8, to spend 9 days with Gavin was an absolute pleasure and for 1 expatriate Irishman it was very refreshing, a fine ambassador for Ireland. Your organization is all the better for having such an employee. After such a success we are already talking of a return to Ireland”.

Jeff Smyth – Australia

“We just returned from 8 days in Ireland with Michael (the boss) as the driver. It is without exception the best experience we all ever had with a driver on a trip. He was exceptional We all travel quite a bit. He was thoughtful, patient, helpful, professional. Need I say more? We will recommend Michael Friel Coaches to all our friends who travel to Ireland. We hope to go again next year. Thank you for making our trip so fabulous!”
