Ireland Isn't Just our Business It's Our Passion

Specialized Travel Services is an Ireland Only Destination Management Company specializing in custom & unique leisure tour experiences & business travel to Ireland. In business since 1974, our sole focus on Ireland ensures the very best of Ireland will be enjoyed, regardless of the type of tour chosen. Our Head Office is in Dublin City, a second office in Cork City, and a sales office in New York City; so you are assured exceptional service on both sides of the Atlantic.

A Brief History

Specialized Travel Services has been in business since 1974 but unofficially it began much before that. The company is part of the Cronin Travel Group, owned & operated by the Cronin Family; in addition to STS, the Cronin Family own and operate Cronins Coaches, Dermot Cronin Motors, and Select Hotels of Ireland, a collection of independently owned hotels.

The Cronin family travel legacy began in 1957 with Dermot Cronin’s operation of a taxi hire service in Cork City using an American Hudson. Today Cronins operates over 50 vehicles of all sizes and is one of Ireland’s largest and longest-running coach companies with many awards and recognitions. With our own fleet of over 50 vehicles, we ensure the highest standard of transportation as these are operated by our sister company Cronins Coaches.

Our Head Office is based in Dublin and our reservations office is in Cork. In 1996, we opened a full time office in New York under the leadership of Director Derry Cronin to better work with the North American trade.

  • Great Job!

    “You did a GREAT JOB with our large group. I must say our driver Phillip Smith was outstanding. He is first of all, a gentleman. He is an astute historian, which greatly added to the trip. He balanced his suggestions with our desires very well. Phillip was always looking to do the little extras for us. He was like a part of the family. We absolutely loved Dromoland Castle and would have liked to stay there a week. Kids did falconry, go karts, pool. Again, thank you for enriching our lives.”

    - Andy Y

  • Trip of a Lifetime

    ‘We just got back from a 2 week trip organized by STS. We had family for one week and friends for the second week. WOW! What a memory they created. The team was on hand locally to make sure all planned activities went off without a hitch; so creative & unique! We will most certainly revisit and recommend STS as a truly Class A Tour Company! To keep 22 people continually surprised is no small feat. All of our guests were so thrilled & enjoyed the best customized trip ever!”
