Our recent journey to the Inishowen Peninsula was nothing short of magical. Guided by Shea, the owner of Deluxe Tours and Transfers, we embarked on an adventure that etched memories into our hearts. From the very first moment I contacted Shea, his warmth and enthusiasm shone through. His responsiveness, clear communication, and willingness to travel an hour out of his way to pick us up put me at ease, assuring me that I had chosen the right person to introduce us to Ireland for the first time. Shea, a true storyteller, historian, and local, wove the rich tapestry of Inishowen’s history and magic into our journey. As a seasoned guide, he seamlessly blended historical context with local anecdotes, making each stop come alive. We explored remarkable sites such as Grianan of Aileach, Fort Dunree, Mamore Gap, and Malin Head – each revealing a different facet of this captivating peninsula. Shea’s attention to detail was remarkable. He ensured our comfort in every way – from the modern and comfortable transportation to the carefully curated stops along the way. When my 86-year-old mother needed a little extra time to explore, he patiently adjusted the pace, sharing his arm and stories with her. It felt like traveling with an old friend, and for that, we are grateful. So, here’s to Shea and the Inishowen Peninsula – a place where history meets hospitality, and every moment feels like a cherished chapter.

My husband and I have been in Ireland on a golfing vacation for the past 2 weeks and Shea, the owner and operator of Deluxe Tours and Transfers, has provided transportation for 11 days. Our trip took us from Bushmills to Sligo to Dublin. He not only ensured we got to the golf courses, but was also available to take us sight seeing. He suggested places to visit that we hadn’t considered so we saw sights that we would have otherwise missed. He also suggested restaurants and local attractions, and was able to provide interesting historical information. Shea was an excellent driver and we would highly recommend him as a driver and for touring.

These are exceptional day tours with Deluxe Tours and Transfers, thanks to the expertise of Shea Norris, our tour guide. He made our visit to Northwest Ireland so interesting and memorable. Shea is well versed in the history and was able to make it come alive with each stop along the day tour. He picked us up in Belfast and drove through the towns along the way to Donegal where my Irish ancestors originated, patiently exploring church cemeteries for the family names. He was attentive to our requests and customized the tour while adding relevant suggestions. Highly recommend Shea Norris and Deluxe Tours and Transfers with no reservation! Totally deserving of a 5/5 Star Review!

I booked Deluxe Tours and Transfers for transportation to business event for 9 team members. My experience with this company was excellent from the onset, accurate, reliable and quick communication during the booking stage, which is greatly appreciated for events such as business awards! The vehicle was in excellent condition, clean and comfortable, with a lounge area with seats. Our driver Damien went above and beyond to accommodate our needs, his manners and persona just added to the smooth trip all together. I would highly recommend Deluxe Tours and Transfers to anybody.

I had the best ever travel experience with Deluxe tour & transfer. Shea arranged us a nice route according to our request. It was all well organised. Our driver Eugene was very kind and waited for us although our flight was delayed for 2,5 hours. He told interesting stories on our way and showed us most incredible places in Ireland where we mediated and discovered beautiful nature. The minivan was so comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed our tour and very grateful. I definitely recommend. Thank you Shea and Eugene ☘️💚
