Tales From a Traveling Family, Just Like Yours

Section title Icon

Mom, travel writer and avid explorer, Melissa Klurman recently took her husband and son on one of our Private Chauffeur trips – and it’s one they’ll never forget. Check out the places they visited and see how your family can create their very own Celtic story, too.

Dublin Trinity College


Enjoy an exciting day exploring this ancient city. See the Old Library and Books of Kells on your exploration of the historical Trinity College.

Irish Stew Ireland Tours


Just like Melissa’s family, head to this city and trial a 3000-year-old game of hurling. The crisp weather will call for tasty Irish stew… a must in our (and Melissa’s) opinion.

Cliffs of Moher Ireland Tours

Cliffs of Moher

Walk along the Wild Atlantic Way and see these iconic cliffs that rise approximately 700 feet above the ocean. Grab a picture and capture memories that will last a lifetime.

Killarney National Park Ireland Tours


Hike along the lakes in this National Park as you’re guided to Meadow Bay and Muckross Abbey. Melissa’s family met one special local on their trip, an adorable golden retriever. Who will you meet?

Falconry Ashford Castle


Fly a hawk at Ireland’s School of Falconry at this remarkable 800-year old castle. Melissa revealed that smiles are guaranteed with this experience.

Chocolate Workshop Galway


What kid doesn’t like sugar? Head to a chocolate workshop in this iconic city to taste different types of this sweet treat. Even try your hand at making your own, that’s if you can resist eating it for a bit.

Melissa Klurman Ashford Castle Falconry

“Brendan Vacations created a custom itinerary that kept my entire family entertained, complete with a personal driver who acted as a combination chauffeur, concierge, and tour guide to personally escort us around the Emerald Isle. Even before we hit our last action-packed day, my 15-year-old paused at dinner one night to say, “This has been an awesome vacation!“ I heartily agree; from the amazing hotels (including a real castle!) to the fabulous activities, the trip exceeded my expectations, all thanks to the experts at Brendan.”
