About Personal Tour Ireland
Personal Tours Ireland specialises in customised tours of Ireland for you and your guests/family. We have a range of pre-set excursions, ranging from 1 day trips to 3 and 5 day trips around this beautiful country. Each trip can be customised to take in other locations or remove locations which may not be of interest to you.
Ireland has so many wonderful places to visit, from famous landmarks, scenic views and locations used in the movies or on TV. As well as this, we offer trips to many different museums, shopping outlets and various coastlines throughout the country.
Peter Cooney is the proprietor and sole founder of Personal Tours Ireland. He was born in Cappoquin, a picturesque and charming village on the Blackwater river in west County Waterford, in Ireland’s ‘Sunny South East’. Peter now lives in Dublin City with his wife and two young children, from where he runs his touring business.
He has been a professional driver for over ten years, during which time he has gained extensive knowledge and experience of the highways and byways of the cities, towns, villages and countryside of the beautiful island of Ireland. Also, as a keen motor cyclist, Peter enjoys exploring the country on his Kawasaki zzr1400 and has included motor cycle excursions as part of his touring service.
He has combined this passion for touring, sightseeing and meeting people, with his business – a successful merger which allows him to share his knowledge and enjoyment of Ireland’s numerous and diverse attractions.
Of course, through running Personal Tours Ireland, Peter is well aware that the true spirit of the country can be found not alone in its natural beauty, but in its people: Any visitor to Ireland is sure to receive a warm and cheerful welcome, wherever they go. This is, after all, the land of a ‘hundred thousand welcomes’… Céad Míle Fáilte!
