My name is Pat Buckley and I am Personal Irish Tours

When I retired from business a few years back, I decided to combine my three passions of golf, meeting new people and exploring every inch of Ireland, and thus was born Personal Irish Tours.

Since 2007 I have had the pleasure of planning and delivering in excess of 200 uniquely individual and different trips for guests from all over the world (but mainly from North America). I personally plan, organize and execute every single trip, from the moment of initial contact, right through to (and often beyond) saying goodbye at the Departure Gates.

I don’t offer ‘standard’ tours because I have yet to meet a ‘standard’ person. Every trip is different, unique and personal, and that’s exactly how I treat them. When I receive a contact enquiry from someone, the first thing I like to do is phone them and personally introduce myself, and outline what I can offer them.

Once I get a feel for what type of trip is required in terms of duration, vacation type, accommodation preferences, attractions and budget, I come up with a suggested itinerary. Then I go back and forth with the guest(s) and ‘tweak’ the plan until they are fully satisfied. I then book everything (excluding the air) on their behalf, thus removing a lot of stress and hassle from them!

On the pages of this site, I hope you’ll get a small flavor of who I am and what I can do for you…
