Donegal's Atlantic Coast - 2nd June 2014


I wish to make comment of the Ulsterbus tour which I have just returned. The Arnolds Hotel at Dunfanaghy was just a perfect place. The hotel looked after us very well, nothing was to much for them, and they where always around.


I do trust this hotel will be on the coach holidays for 2015.


Yours sincerely

Kent, Canterbury Cathedral - 16 July 13



Our driver Dirk Nelson was excellent, not only was he a very safe driver but nothing was any trouble to him. Without his help we would have found things very difficult. Dirk went far beyond what anyone could have expected of him.

Maritime Hotel Bantry - 24 June 2013



The outstanding service provided by our driver Damien was impressive. Not only was he an excellent driver but he had an impressive knowledge of  SW Ireland. We benefitted from this profound knowledge on our day trips to the Beara Peninsula, Mizen Head and Cork City. The long trips to and from Bantry were also made interesting with humourous stories and pertinent commentary on places of interest. Please pass on our thanks to him for a memorable trip.

Dear Martine


Edinburgh School Tour - 15 June 2011


As a parent of a child who is a wheelchair user, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the way that Ulsterbus accommodated us with appropriate transport enabling us to go on the above school tour. The lift which allowed accessibility onto the bus was very quick and efficient. I would also like to thank our driver, Tom McWilliams who was most helpful and considerate during the trip. I feel it is important to highlight this which allowed my child to go on the trip alongside the rest of his class.


Thanks again Martine for all your efforts in organizing this.





Dear Enda


Glasgow School Tour - 31 May 2011


I would like to thank you very much for your assistance in organising our school trip. All the pupils had a fantastic time. I would particularly like you to pass on my thanks to Rodney (our driver). He is an ambassador for Ulsterbus.


Both you and Rodney went the "extra mile" to ensure all our needs were taken care of with the pupil who had an accident. All the arrangements went very smoothly as usual.


Yours sincerely

Manchester School Tour - 23 May 2011


Martine in the office was extremely helpful from the first day I spoke to her and in our subsequent communications she was always willing to help us with any queries we had and to amend our itinerary even at late notice. On behalf of the school I would like to thank her for helping make the trip a fantastic experience for everyone.


Our drivers Danny and Tom were simply fantastic. They are perfect for the job and once again I hope your company appreciates two fanastic employees who do a wonderful job. They have left us all with a very good impression of Education Tours and we would highly recommend your company to other schools as a result of the people we have worked with on the trip.


Thank you for all your help and for making our trip such a wonderful experience for the children.


Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Hurrell


Armistice Day - 9 November 2010

I recently travelled on the above tour - my first to Europe with Ulsterbus but my fourth with your excellent company. I write this to say how impressed I was with the tour's itinerary and also the excellent accommodation.


However, I primarily write to bring to your attention the 2 great ambassadors for Ulsterbus - namely David McGaughey and Sammy Lavery who not only were excellent and courteous drivers but knowledgeable tour guides - nothing was too much trouble for them and both gentlemen are to be commended for looking after everyone so well.


I do hope that I have occasion to travel with them again. Thank you Ulsterbus for a very memorable trip.


Yours sincerely



Dear members of staff


Traditional Ireland - 11 October 2010

My friend and I went on a tour to Co Clare and what a treat we had. It was so enjoyable in every way. Weather was super, hotel excellent, good company and Damien, the driver, was so helpful in every way.


Yours sincerely



Dear Mr Thompson


English Riviera Tour - Saturday 28 August 2010


Last week my wife and I had a wonderful holiday on the English Riviera courtesy of Ulsterbus tours. I would like to single out Driver Robert McLaughlin, whose unfailing good humour, courtesy and kindness were the making of the tour. Robert showed particular kindness and patience to my wife who is physically handicapped. He is a professional to his fingertips such as we have come to expect from Ulsterbus drivers.


I would also like to pay particular compliment to the management and staff of the Livermead Hotel in Torquay. Having stayed at hotels all over Europe I can not think of one which matched the hospitality of the Livermead. Everyone with whom we came into contact was friendly, helpful and courteous. Particular mention must be made of the chef and his team. The menu provided a wide choice of dishes, all of superb quality and it was served up by an obviously highly trained, predominantly young staff who took a pride in carrying out their duties in a manner which spoke of the highest professional standards. I sincerely hope to meet up with them again.

Antrim Coast Day Tour - Sunday 8 August 2010


My friend, who is visiting me from South Africa, and I took a Day Trip to the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge.


I am writing now to thank you for a wonderful day, made particularly special by Dirk, our Ulsterbus Tour driver, who was at all times professional, helpful, incredibly knowledgeable, concerned about our welfare, and fun. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day 'with' him, with all of my fellow passengers and I agreeing at the end of the day that it was Dirk's wonderful personality that made the day so memorable and enjoyable. We all commented that if we knew he'd be our driver, we'd love to do more tours with him.


So please, if you could pass on our thanks and gratitude, it would be much appreciated. Dirk represented Ulsterbus Tours magnificently and should be congratulated on being a credit to both your Company name and tour bus drivers everywhere. And if Dirk is an example of the sort of drivers you employ, I'm very much looking forward to my next Ulsterbus Tour.


Many thanks.



Dear Mr Rogan


Private Coach Hire - Saturday 5 June 2010


A very big thank you for providing our group with a most luxurious coach for our outing to Greencastle last Saturday. We all felt very privileged to be on such a lovely vehicle and with a most pleasant driver.


Thanks to all the staff for their part in making our day so enjoyable - Mary and Amanda in the booking office and John the driver who was such a good humoured person.


Yours most sincerely



Dear Martine

Grand Gardens Tour - Monday 24th May 2010

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our recent holiday with Ulsterbus tours. The entire trip was a pleasure with a relaxing and interesting schedule. A special note of thanks must go to our "driver" Dirk who was excellent in not only his driving abilities but his attitude and helpfulness and willingness to go that extra mile to ensure everyone on the trip was happy.


We look forward to more trips

Rudesheim Tour - 6th May 2010


"Stress free holidays with Ulsterbus"

I am writing to thank you for the lovely holiday we had in Rudesheim. Your office staff were wonderful arranging our reservations on the ferries and the hotel. Everything went so well - our cabins were comfortable as was the super buffet meals on board and we had nice meals in the hotel. The driver was informative and very friendly.


I am glad we have 2 more holidays booked with Ulsterbus Tours in 2010.

Deeside & Tayside Tour - 17 August 2009

Yours sincerely




Dear Sirs


The Wye Valley - 11 May 2009

After a wonderful holiday last year to the Warner Thoresby Hall our group of four went to The Wye Valley. We enjoyed Holme Lacy House and we had the same driver, Dirk, who is so good at his job. The weather was mixed and the only mix up was the hotel forgot about our early breakfast when we were leaving. The four of us are also going on your tour to Nidd Hall in October this year.


Ulsterbus Tours gives excellent value for money and I look forward to receiving your next Special Breaks brochure.


Thank you




Dear Sirs


Isle of Wight Tour - 10 May 2009

Thank you once again




Dear Mr Sheridan


Westport Tour - March 2009


I am writing to you personally to say how much we enjoyed last week's tour to Westport. Your coach was clean and comfortable and the Clew Bay Hotel was well appointed with good food and friendly staff.


But all this would not have been so enjoyable if we had not been blessed with a caring and pleasant driver. David was truly the icing on the cake. One of us required a good deal of assistance and David was always on hand doing his best to help; doing it in a tactful way which did not cause embarrassment to the disabled person.
