Tour BusYour holiday begins as soon as you step on board one of the super-luxury 5 star coaches. All are approved to Bord Failte standards and have comfortable seats, spacious leg-room, foot-rests, seat-belts, air-conditioning, a restroom and DVD player. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. On longer tours, seat rotation is the usual practice.

Our huge luggage compartments mean that there are no restrictive baggage allowances and there's plenty of room to bring home all those holiday souvenirs.

Kavanagh Travel's team of highly experienced drivers will ensure your utmost comfort and safety throughout. Knowledgeable, mature, qualified and friendly, they are always ready to offer assistance. They know the best places for refreshments stops enroute to avoid the pitfalls of 'tourist traps', the best spots for those all-important photo opportunities and of course, the best routes.

Most of our drivers are fully accredited Failte Ireland Approved Tour Guides.

For performance, safety, reliability and punctuality beyond compare, our coaches and drivers cannot be beaten.
