Siyabulela was a wonderful driver who kept his head on focus on our way out and home.

200818 Thumbs up for your drivers at commuter service to the Business Park, Dublin. Always in time.

Especially one driver always cheers me up.

Unfortunately, I do not know his name because I always rush somewhere with absolutely no time to talk (He is bald, probably middle age, with glasses).

Excellent job!

Thank you.

I shall be in touch with you for quotations at that point.

Thank you very much Stephen A Millar and Dublin Mini Coaches Team for all your professional yet very kind services. My group of 11 on 23-30 September were very satisfied with everything you

provided. Many thanks for your kind support, handful operation team, luxury new bus, and amazing driver David Fitzgerald!!! He was funny, polite and very handful.

More than that, I am grateful for that everybody went extra miles to co operate to bring my purse back from Letterkenny, Donegal down to Dublin and everything in that purse was in the right place! <3 BIG THANK YOU! Highly recommended Dublin Mini Coaches to everyone! :) <3

04/08/2017 Hi Sinead & Stephen,

All of us here at Hays, particularly those of us who finished the 4 Peaks Challenge last weekend, just wanted to drop a quick line through to say thanks. We received phenomenal support and encouragement from our sponsors and suppliers and it made all our fundraising efforts possible. Dublin Mini Coaches provided us with a brilliant service and outstanding drivers as well (honourable mention for Pádraig O’Connell). The logistics was the toughest aspect of this fundraising effort and you helped tackle it for us.

Again, thank you for your support in helping us contribute towards such a worthy cause.


22/06/17 Hi Selene, Thank you so much! We have just received the receipt, so we are all set. And, yes, we were very pleased with the service we received from your company and especially from the driver, Padrick, who went above and beyond! Soren


29/05/2017 Great weekend. Oliver was very patient dealing with us! Will recommend your service going forward. Niall



RECORD REVIEWS for Padraigh O'Connell


1/ I have to say Padraig O'Connell made my trip in Ireland everything I hoped for and more. He went above and beyond what was expected of him and even worked hard to give my group an unforgettable cultural experience in Ireland. He went out of his way from getting us hurling sticks so we can try out hurling to making sure we had some authentic delicious Irish food. I would not only recommend this company but definitely Padraig!! I can't say thank you enough



2/ Padraig went so far above and beyond the duties of driver to make sure our experience was the best possible! He organized extra activities for us, accommodated our large crazy group, entertained us with music and even sang for us one day! He was great at recommending places to eat and drink in every town and told us a bit of history everywhere we went too! He's the best!!! 3/ Padraig was the best bus driver ever!! I left a card in my luggage (which was the first one to be put on the bus) and I asked him to take it off and he didn't get mad at all! He gave us great advice on where to go and even got a place to open up early for us and taught us how to play hurling! 4/ Padraig O'Connell was a great driver! He went the extra mile to give our group the best experience possible. He was always open to extra things we wanted to do and gave us a great Irish experience!


5/ Top notch service! Padraig O'Connell represented your company and country in an exceptional manner. He went above and beyond everyday expecting nothing in return other than some good laughs. I would definitely recommend your company in the future especially Padraig!


6/ Excellent service!! Padraig was our driver and went beyond what was expected from him!



02/05/2017 We would like to thank you for smooth service. Both drivers were really nice, on time, helpful and polite. Special thanks to Frank, who adviced us to leave a bit earlier on Sunday, which was really good idea as the airport was slightly packed. Best regards, Hanna


10/04/2017 I would like to really thank padraig. He was absolutely brilliant, he was extremely helpful and could not do more for us on Friday. He really is a credit to your company.Thanks.Kate




Lovely compliment from one of our recent clients of our driver Padraig O'Connell.

Firstly I would like to thank yourself for all your assistance with the booking.

Secondly, with regards to the driver, we could not fault his attention to detail, there were 20 ladies in the party in total, and everyone of them commented on how truly amazing and courteous he was. After a harrowing journey of 14 hours from leaving our home in the Midlands to the Ferry at Holyhead, and an awful 11 hours on the ferry, Padraig was waiting patiently, and had been since 6 am in the morning when we were due to dock at Dublin port, he waited for 7 hours till we got off the ferry and left for Tipperary at 1pm. His patience and caring welcome made us all feel so much better after enduring the Storm Doris for so many hours.

He was exceptionally pleasant at all times, putting away all our luggage into the coach, when asked, he took pictures of the whole party with our lettered t-shirts, and on our last day we had appointments booked for our makeup at 12 noon, and he kindly dropped us off in Dublin taking all the luggage to the townhouses we had booked, without this additional help we would have missed our appointments.

On behalf of the whole hen party, we would like to say how grateful we all are for his kindness, sense of humor, patience and above for the warm greetings he extend to us, we would welcome the opportunity of thanking him, if our friends come to Dublin, we would recommend him personally to them. I can honestly say he a remarkable driver covering all aspects of customer service above and beyond what was expected.

From all 20 guests please pass our huge thanks to Padraig , he is a credit to the company.

Kind regards,



23/01/2017 Just like to say a massive thank you for your service over the weekend- Padraig was absolutely fantastic and we were delighted with how the weekend went. Looking forward to working with you's again soon.

12/05/16 Dear Sinead and Beatriz,Thank you so much for all your operation for my company. My customers and I got absolute satisfaction from your company services all through the process. I booked for 10 seat Mercedes Mini Coach VIP and you said I would have had no wifi. Well when Charlies picked us up at the airport, I was surprised. You upgraded it to be 16 seat with wifi for 6 people. My customers were very very happy about it and they gave a lot of compliments, both to my company and to yours. The 16 seat we got was new and very comfortable plus Charlies was absolutely amazing. He was very kind and polite. He stopped for us every time possible when we requested to take photos with amazing views. We also invited Charlies to have dinner with us at KAYA, a thai restaurant in Limerick. Finally, I will recommend your company and Charlies to any customers. Thank you so much for everything and I will definitely use your service again very soon. Chuenruedee

02/04/16 another nice compliments (must be his Donegal charm) Hello, I just wanted to let you know we had the perfect trip. Charlie MCGROARTY was the best driver ever. We all adored him. He was a great driver and so entertaining and fun to be with. It was like he was a member of our family. So we had Charlie driving the bus and 2 yr. old Charlie in the back of the bus over seeing everything! Ha. The type of bus was great and so easy and comfortable to ride in. Thank you for picking Charlie for us to lead us around Ireland. His insight and knowledge of having lived in Ireland gave us so much more from his stories and information about the different sights we were seeing. Thank you again Abdul for helping us set up this trip and all the details to visit Ireland as we all said "for the family trip of a lifetime". Anne OConnell


13/03/16 Hello Abdul, This message is to express our great appreciation concerning our chauffeur, Mr Ioan Maris. Not only did he drive us exactly how, when and where we asked, but he also provided us with great help, making sure we could get the best price for the admission to Powerscourt Gardens and Powerscourt Waterfall, phoning to Glendalough Visitor Centre to put off the meeting we had planned there, then calling back to cancel the putting off... He was just the best man for the job and did it beyond our most exigent expectations. Be assured that we will highly recommend Dublin Mini Coaches to any teacher planning a school trip to Dublin! Many thanks and best regards, Christophe Duquenne
