Question about hiring a driver for an 8-day trip

Hi folks,

I have a friend visiting from the states that's in the middle of finishing treatment for a serious illness.

She normally drives when she visits Ireland, but she can't operate a car at the moment and doesn't think that she will have the strength to navigate public transport, carry bags, etc.

I've googled, asked in forums on Facebook and sent out a few texts to friends, but I can't for the life of me get any idea of prices for her.

She's here for 8 days in October and is looking to get a drive for 6 of them (2 days in Galway, 3 in Kerry and one in Kildare or Dublin).

If any of you have any experience or advice that you could share it would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Keith

Have you called the TI office? I would think they could give you some ideas. Alternatively, you can contact Derek Smith of Beautiful Meath tours, https://www.beautifulmeath.com/. Lisa Tully (an RS guide) put me in touch with him for a day tour that I've arranged for late August. Although I haven't taken the tour yet he's been very responsive and helpful.
