I can’t say enough good things about our trip. Obviously, the weather was wonderful, which helped
make our trip most enjoyable. John Campbell is a valuable asset to Mathews, as he was a pleasure to
be with. The golf courses were great, the hotels and locations were very good, allowing us to enjoy
the local culture. Irish folks are wonderful and very friendly.
We had a fantastic trip. Thank you very much for your thoughtful effort in planning our outing.

Thanks for everything. It was one of the best traveling experiences I think I ever had. John
Campbell was the greatest.  You two guys made the trip.  The people here were great.  I will
remember this event forever. Thanks again.

We would give the highest possible recommendation to Matthews Tours for any group visiting Ireland. Working with Damian for the year leading up to our tour was an absolute pleasure and we felt we were in very capable and professional hands while working out the details of every aspect of our trip. From travel to accommodation to excursions, everything was handled with amazing efficiency. Damian is extremely positive and responsive. We would have no hesitation working with him and Matthews Tour in the future. Our group of 51 travelers could not have had a better driver than Simon Smyth! He is an absolute rock star and to say he went ‘above and beyond’ is an understatement. He was always at least 2 steps ahead of any potential glitch and had it settled before our guests even realized there was an issue. His professionalism, flexibility and all- around good nature truly enhanced the tour experience every day for our guests and ourselves, mirroring the service we received from Matthews.

This was the 6th Tour of Ireland for our group, and we have used several of the bigger tour operators. None came close to providing the service we received from Matthews Tours. We will no doubt be using them many more times.

I want to thank you for putting together a terrific trip for the Everingham group. Our weather was great, only a few rain drops during the week. The hotels were great, we really enjoyed our time in Killarney. The courses were top shelf. Old Head was fantastic and Hogs Head was a real treat. John could not have done a better job. He was available when we needed him and had beers and snacks when we needed them. He really was a key to the success of the trip. We enjoyed his company and help. He is a true asset to your company. You will be highly recommended to anyone we talk to who wants to do an Ireland golf trip.

Thanks again for everything.

We’ve taken a trip a year for the last 15 years. This was the best trip we’ve ever taken and Mathews tours and Damian were a big reason why. I highly recommend Mathews tours & definitely ask for Damian. Cheers”.

I first realised that Matthews was the best choice for TurfNet when our driver had a family emergency that required him to be on the road during our visit. Read more

We wanted to let you know what a fabulous trip we had with Martin Madden as our driver. We enjoyed his company and his sense of humor. He was more than accommodating for anything we wanted to do. His presence added to the enjoyment of our trip to Ireland. We can’t say enough good things about him!

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of your efforts and graciousness in getting us where we needed to be and for being our tour guide. You did an outstanding job and it was a real pleasure to get to know you over our 5 days in Ireland. As you know, I have been there 4 prior times and this was undoubtedly, the best trip I have been on.

We’ve done a lot of trips, but this one was the best. Our driver Damian could not have been any better. First class all the way!

From the time we landed at the airport, Damian was incredibly a entive and assisted our group with our every need. I would highly recommend Ma hews Tours for all tours and specically ask for Damian.
