Meet Our Team who will help to build your ideal tour of Ireland...
Our team has steadily increased in size since our company was established. The initial founders - Noel, Jason and Deborah still remain and we have since been joined by many more competent, friendly Sales Advisors. Our company is like a tight knit family. We work hard together but as we all love our job, going to work is not like a chore for us. Team morale is always high and that reflects in our manner of dealing with perspective clients.

Jason O' Neill (Personal Chauffeur) - Personal Chauffeur
I was born and raised in the midlands county of Westmeath, in the small but beautiful little village of Kilbeggan. I have travelled many places around the world and seen many sights, but Ireland's scenery is truly unique. My favourite places to visit are Dublin and Galway. The 'craic' and the atmosphere always make for a great time.
I am a dedicated Gaelic football enthusiast, both as a player for my local team and supporter of Westmeath. I would highly recommend attending a game at one of the huge selection of GAA fields around the country and make sure you a try a pint of 'the black stuff'.

In my opinion being a chauffeur driver is the best job in a tour company. I love meeting and getting to know new people and building friendships during the tours. I still keep regular contact with lots of previous customers and very much enjoy hearing the unique stories from each customer. Safety of my clients is paramount and great care is always taken to ensure each tour runs without a hitch.
Of course the other reason I love what I do is I get to see all of the most beautiful places in Ireland. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge with my customers and this spans to ''off the beaten track'' areas that only someone who travels the country regularly could possibly know.
At Irish Dream Tours we only use our own staff members for our tours, not sub-contracted companies (which most other companies use). This way you can be assured that you will be looked after to the highest standard and get the best tour. My enthusiasm is only matched by my friendliness and dedication to my job and I truly look forward to every tour I do throughout the year.
Deborah Feery (Sales Executive) - Sales Executive
I was born and reared in Westmeath in the country-side. My home house is down a little bog road in the middle of nowhere and is surrounded by farms - the view out of my bedroom window has been of sheep and cows for many years so I guess you could say I'm a proper country girl!
I studied Traditional Irish Music and Dance in the University of Limerick and I have been playing music since I was three years old. I teach Traditional Irish Music to children part-time and it's great to be able to pass on the tradition and keep our Irish Music culture alive. I love attending Irish Music Sessions all over Ireland and always carry a tin-whistle in my handbag because you never know when you'll stumble upon an impromtu session!
I've travelled Ireland extensively and want to share my knowledge with you in the hopes of recreating some of the fantastic holidays I've had in our beautiful country.
Here is an excerpt from my University Final Year Performance, I'm on the tin-whistle.. Enjoy!
Noel O' Neill (Personal Chauffeur) - Personal Chauffeur
As a company director for over 30 years I have a wealth of knowledge and experience on how a business should be run - with complete customer satisfaction being top of my list. I have spent many years travelling in Ireland on holidays with my family and I want you to have the same treasured experiences that I have had. With a family of 5 boys, you quickly learn what co-operation and teamwork is all about, a trait which I actively encourage in the team at Irish Dream Tours.
I have a great interest in farming, mostly cattle and horses and this is what I spend most of my spare time doing. This also helpsme to appreciate the natural beauty of Ireland's countryside.

When I finished School and College,I went to work in the Head Officeof Aer Lingus -our NationalAirline.Thisgave me my first insight into the tourism business.
After some years, I got married and left Aer Lingus to raise my family.I am delighted to get the opportunity to be involved once again in theTourism Industry and in particular to work with Irish Dream Tours.
In the course of married and working life, Ihave taken lots offantasticvacations in Ireland. I would be delighted to share my holiday experiences withyou so that you can also enjoy the wonders of Ireland.
My favourite hobbiesare horse racing, show jumping and tennis and Ireland has some wonderfulhorse racing venues. I also love going to Comedy shows in our Capital cities.
I regularly take drives at the weekend down the Country - nothing compares to the scenery in Ireland. Taking in the scenery and fresh air really does wonders for the soul!
Michael Killian (Personal Chauffeur) - Personal Chauffeur
I grew up in the beautiful Lake County of Westmeath right next to the historic hill of Uisneach in the
heart of Ireland. With Uisneach hill as my childhood playground it is no surprise I have a profound
interest in heritage and history. I also love to travel and have visited many beautiful places around
the world and across the length and breadth of Ireland.
Many years of experience in business and as a professional driver ensure that safety of my passengers and customer satisfaction are top of my list of priorities. Being part of the Irish Dream Tours team affords me the opportunity to spend each day doing what I love most, meeting new people and travelling around my beautiful country.
