Everything ran like clockwork from check in, match tickets, transfers to the hotel, stadium and airport. Very professionally done.

Villiers School
Team Tour to Salou - 2022

Just a quick note to say how brilliant the trip to New Zealand was. Everything went very well and we had a ball. The series win was fantastic and we celebrated as only the Irish can. Our fellow supporters and the leaders gelled together and, given how up in the air everything was over the past few months, the tour really was a triumph. Here’s to the next trip.

Just wanted to thank you and your team for a great weekend. It was just brilliant to be travelling again and as ever ye were superb . Looking forward to many more trips with ye.

Ann, Cork.
France v Ireland, Paris 2022

I just wanted to record my grateful thanks for a wonderful trip which went well beyond my expectations with regard to the service delivered. Everything that was within your control, and a few things that weren't, turned up trumps. Airport check-in, aircraft seating, transfers, hotel check-in arrangements, pre-match lunch, weather etc, were perfectly organised and executed.

Aidan, Dublin.
France v Ireland, Paris 2022

I thought the trip was very well organised. I took my 14-year-old son on his first away trip, and he loved every minute. We never considered the ticket seat location in the stadium, that was an unbelievable surprise for him when he noticed we were in around the half way line. Very happy young man after his week. Thanks to all involved.

Anthony, Limerick.
Toulouse v Munster, January 2023

Thank you for a wonderful rugby trip. From our first communication, Patrick and I felt so welcome and very much cared for. Thank you also for your generous hospitality in treating us to a real feast in Japan.

Wasabi Tour - RWC 2019

We had a brilliant time. The whole tour was very well organised and it was great to see so much in a relatively short period of time. A first class tour! Thank you all very much.
