"We have just returned from the coach trip at Easter, I must say it was one of the most enjoyable we have ever taken. The driver was second to none, he really seemed to enjoy his work and gave us 110% attention, we would gladly travel with Kavanagh's again. The hotels were excellent in both standard of rooms and food."
