We wanted to see Ireland but were nervous about driving. Sceptre found our chauffeur, Pat, and he knew everything about the history and geography around us… he did a great job negotiating the hairpin curves on the Ring of Kerry. Can’t imagine a better vacation!
Anna M.

With Sceptre we were able to make a vacation that was really unique. We stayed in two castles, did some serious shopping, and spent a lot of time out in nature. One of the best things about Ireland is its beautiful scenery, and we were always exactly where we wanted to be.



Ireland was wonderful!  We learned so much and had such a nice time from beginning to end.  Our driver, Cornelius, was so knowledgeable and friendly and accommodating!  Thank you for planning this very memorable vacation for us - we were beyond satisfied, it all exceeded our expectations!
