Client Testimonials

Where customers always come first
Some kind words from our clients

As usual, it has been a pleasure to work with you guys. Your level of service is excellent!

Cristina, Advantage Event Experts

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to our driver Michael for a fantastic few days. Our client was bowled over by Michael’s warmth and professionalism. Michael went above and beyond and even stopped at a pharmacy to buy Waleed some painkillers for his back (please do add the cost of the nurofen onto the bill).

There is great comfort knowing our clients are in great hands from the moment they arrive at the airport so thank you so much.

With Kindest Regards,



I just wanted to drop you a note about the driver we had on Monday. He was so great with the clients and so accommodating to some last minute change of plans. He was also a great tour guide and gave some history on different parts of the city that we passed through and the clients really loved it! Just said I would send some feedback as Stephen was brilliant with the clients!


Hi Mary, just to say a big thank you for all your help over the past couple of weeks.  It was a bit manic with lots of moving parts but as always your diligence and professionalism made it all work!

Have a lovely weekend – I am sure we will be in touch again soon!

Sarah, Visits Officer

Dear Sarah and TJ,

I just wanted to email and pass on my professional and personal thanks to TJ Foley who was our driver on the visit of TRH’s to Ireland.

Both my officers and I were hugely impressed by TJ’s professionalism, knowledge of the area and his very much can do attitude. This contributed to the visit being safe and successful.

I would strongly recommend TJ for any future work and I look forward working with him in the future.


After a ten day tour of Ireland with friends I bid them farewell and headed out on a wonderful day long adventure thru the Boyne Valley.  I was going to visit family ancestral locations in Ireland. Tony, my very personable professional driver, who knows Ireland inside out took me to places I would never have known to ask about.  His knowledge of history and witty trivia made it a day I will never forget.  I felt as if I was taking a ride with a family member, thanks for the “best” day.


Fantastic Dublin Coastal Tour

I had been researching Dublin coastal towns for a long time and I knew where I wanted to go but needed a flexible and knowledge driver to take my family of five there. Denis O’Connor of Optimum was that guy. We first went south towards Dalkey, Killiney and he had some additional ideas to go for lunch at Johnnie Foxes and a stop at Powerscourt. Denis knew where all the Irish stars lived and showed us their houses and told us stories in each of the towns. We then headed to the northeast of Dublin to Howth and Malahide. We planned to have a seafood dinner at one of the many exceptional seafood restaurants in Howth but our earlier fantastic meal from Foxes lunch was still with us. Denis did a wonderful job of using my itinerary and adding other great stops along the way. Lastly Denis’ Mercedes van was extremely clean and luxurious.

Mick Cunningham provided me with the absolute best service available, finding all these hidden businesses I had meetings with, always the warmest, friendliest most caring driver. Could not be any more pleased with the service I got.

Outstanding Service and Experiences

My family and I, party of eight, traveled from Dublin for a full day trip into Meath County. Our driver and guide Neil was great, as was the very roomy comfortable 16 seat Mercedes sprinter van. Neil made great suggestions as to place to visit as we worked our way around The Bourne River Valley areas. He was witty, and very educational. We had a great pub lunch in Navan as well which he suggested.
The next day we traveled across Ireland with Tony to Mayo County. We saw our ancestral home as well as sites along the way. Tony was very professional and told us so much of Ireland. Was great. He made stops at places we would have never experienced.

My family is grateful for the experiences these fine men helped us experience visiting the homes of my grandparents and many other great places along the way.
There is no way in hell I could have driven this distances, and enjoyed the breathtaking views.

These guys are pros and I highly recommend their services.

Perfect service

Optimum couldn't have been better - always on time, great drivers and very nice vehicles. Planning was easy and responsive. Absolutely recommend them and will use again. Special thanks to our driver Martin who never ran out of information about Ireland and suggestions to improve our trip.

What a joy to have a driver!

We came to Ireland for a week in between when my mother passed after an exhausting illness, and her memorial service. We were totally fried and exhausted. Sarah made the arrangement for a driver extremely easy despite scheduling the trip in such a short time. Our driver Jimmy Cramer was such a blessing! He drove us around the west coast of Ireland and touring Dublin. He knows all of Ireland intimately so he was able to take us to both the highlights of a tour of Ireland as well places like pubs and restaurants that we wouldn’t have found on our own or would have expended energy we didn’t have wandering looking for food. We had SO much fun with Jimmy! Laughter truly is good for the soul! He took such great care of us. I felt renewed after our lovely week with dear Jimmy.

Ireland is such an exquisite country you want to be able to see the vistas. It was so nice having someone else doing the driving, especially if you are from North America and drive on the opposite side of the road. No nervousness needing to handle all those round abouts, and you can have a pint or two of the delicious Irish beer at the pub and not worry about getting back to your hotel safely. Just sit back, relax and enjoy your ability to see everything without having to drive! What a joy!

Another great day with Optimum

This is my second time using Optimum Chauffeur service, and it was just as wonderful the second time around. Our driver Jimmy was lovely, funny and entertaining as he drove us around for the day. Sarah was so helpful in accommodating a last minute booking for us. I really couldn’t say enough good things about their people and service.

Sarah in Customer Service saved my trip!

I was traveling with a large group from the US for an event at Slane Castle and after thinking that another car service had our transportation sorted out, I found out 2 days before the booking that they couldn’t accommodate us. I was scrambling to find another service last minute and of course most every car service laughed at my request. Optimum saved the day! I spoke to a woman named Sarah and explained my situation. She worked very hard and was able to secure 2 vehicles to take my party of 7, and even gave me a few calls back whilst she was looking, in order to keep informed of the progress! I am hopeful that judging by how great their staff is, that the drivers and the ride will go smoothly! THANK YOU

Excellent for Tours and Conference transport

This is my 2nd experience with Optimum Chauffeur Drive. I have never reviewed a service twice before but we had such an outstanding experience with them that I feel compelled to do so. I visited Dublin with my husband while he was attending a conference and we were lucky enough to have 2 day tours organised for us with Optimum. I could not recommend them highly enough. We toured beautiful Wicklow and visited some wonderful locations such as Glendalough and Powerscourt. We also made the trip across to the west coast to the stunning Cliffs of Moher. Our drivers on both occasions were exceptional. Their local knowledge ensured that we saw many sites that I feel sure if we were traveling on our own we would never have known about. Jimmy and Michael were so warm and friendly, they really went out of their way to make both days memorable for our group. Optimum also looked after all of the transport for my husband’s conference and I heard nothing but great comments about how exceptionally well organised everything was. The conference organiser from my Husbands company told us she was extremely impressed with the service she had received. It really left us all with a great impression of Dublin and Ireland. While in Dublin we stayed at the Shelbourne hotel, it was superb and a really central location too.

Great high level of service

This is my second time using Optimum and again I was not disappointed! Beautiful luxurious car with a fantastic driver. Last time I had Jimmy and thought I was lucky with the driver I had but I had a different driver this time, Kevin who was equally as fantastic. Their knowledge and professionalism and just the perfect Irish charm is second to none!! Highly recommend for business or leisure

…my guide and I have chosen to weave and wind our way along the Wild Atlantic Way, hugging the country’s ragged, rugged shoreline.

“It’s a little longer,” says Dublin native Kevin Costello from behind the wheel of his Mercedes noir. “About four hours – but you’ll get a truer sense of Ireland and its people that way.

“And,” he smiles, “you’ll have better stories to tell when you get back to Canada.”

As personable as he is professional, Costello is the epitome of Irish hospitality; a wealth of both warmth and wisdom, his knowledge of Eire’s history and culture is second-to-none – all of it accented by tidbits of personal tales and a swath of homegrown wit.

Excellent tour

I had the pleasure of taking a short day tour with Optimum Chauffeur drive. From the moment we first contacted Sarah down to the wonderful driver Liam it was nothing but excellent service,an informative tour of Cork and great banter and fun.

I would highly recommend Optimum Chauffeur drive

Dublin private tour with driver

My husband and I are just back from a wonderful 5 day holiday to Ireland. We stayed in Dublin for 3 nights at the wonderful Merrion hotel which I could not fault at all. The location in the city centre was great as were the food and staff. Dublin is a wonderful vibrant city with great shops and restaurants we particularly enjoyed One Pico. The highlight of our holiday was our own driver and guide Liam who was with us for the duration of our stay. My husband booked this service with Optimum Chauffeur Drive who really were fantastic. They took care of everything from recommending hotels and restaurants to organising and planning our tour itinerary and our transfer from Dublin airport to the hotel and onwards. Liam was so wonderful he really made our holiday showing us many sights off the regular tourist trail and regaling us with all the local history and folklore. We really could not get over his proffesionalism and that of the staff at Optimum. I would highly recommend their service.

Peace Of Mind 

Hi Mary,

I hope you had a nice Easter !

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service that my parents got. It all went very smoothly and Jimmy was lovely.

Under the circumstances it was absolutely brilliant for us and gave us great peace of mind.

If you have not charged my card can you go ahead and do so please. When things get back to normal I would be delighted to recommend Optimum to my clients.

Many thanks again

Kindest Regards
