  • 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!”
