Coach Hire Dublin deserves our praise and gratitude for helping a very long and bad day end well for our passengers after diverting from Dublin to Shannon. I had tried several coach hire companies before yours, but was told either they could not help due to the road conditions or their vehicles were snowed in! If I could I would treat your drivers to several pints of Guinness!! Thanks to you too Gillian, for her patience on the day while I kept her waiting for my confirmation and credit card details.
