Hello, I want you to know that Michael and I had brilliant time at weekend of Emmerdale tour that this company set up. We enjoyed every minute from the start at pick up and drop off. The driver John Murphy is fantastic and has great patience for old, younger and us who are deaf and we felt privileged to be fitted in. I also want to thank lot of people that were in the same coach as us. Too many names to mention. I have made friends with Sandy Mc Sweeney and her beautiful Mum, it will be a life long friendship for us. So it's hats off to Celtic Horizon tour for setting up the trip and we hope they will organise more trips for us.
Just a word of thanks from myself on behalf of Carrigtwohill Utd, to you and your back room staff for making this a very memorable trip for our U13 squad. As you can see from the managers report and pics they had a great time and everything went to plan, thanks to your bus driver Jimmy, for knowing exactly where to be and on time for every part of the itinerary. So, from all here in Carrigtwohill, wish you all the best in your business and you will here from me again in September.
Yours in sport,
Ger O Hanlon,
A massive thanks to you and all involved in the trip for the lads. Brilliant for them. All wrecked. Im back in work for a rest! Attached are a few pics of the trip if you want to review them! Thanks you so much once more so well organised and run. How you got a match that had 6 goals is mystic meg stuff...Lads loved it Anthony was fantastic getting us from A to B etc.
Celbridge Town FC
Newcastle United v Wigan Athletic
Jennifer, the lads that went on this trip wanted me to contact you to say that the seats at the match were fantastic. They actually couldn't believe the view and the hospitality area, and they have been to tons of different stadiums. The hotel location was perfect, the staff were great and the hotel itself was clean and conformable. They pass along their thanks. They enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely use your company again in the future.
Just back from a great trip to see Man Utd vs West Brom. It was the first time we had booked with your company and I was very impressed from the start. The employees that work for your company were very helpful in helping me organise this trip for me with my brother who has autism. Every time I emailed them they would get back very quickly with a response. The match tickets arrived a four days before the match which was great. The hotel we stayed in was a fantastic hotel and only 3 minutes walk from the airport. The hotel is worthy of five stars and the staff at the hotel were very friendly. The seats at Old Trafford have been the best I ever seen for a match. I usually travel with another company but it is safe t say I will be using your company in the future.
Just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your company. We travelled to see Liverpool game on sun 12 march. The two drivers Anthony and Gerard I think were their names were two absolute gents and were beyond patient and accommodating when people were late back to the bus. It was a great trip and one I hope to take with your company again. Very professional and very good value for money for the experience we had Jacinta and Ronan Murphy
HI John Just to advise that I travelled with Celtic Horizon tour to the above fixture last weekend – there were 2 adults and 2 children in the group. I wish to compliment your Company on the organisation of the tour and the hotel accommodation – it was perfect. Above all I would like to compliment the driver on the bus for this trip – his professionalism and attitude went far beyond the call of duty. There was a vast mixture of people in the group from families, to older people, to young guys travelling and overall everyone was well behaved and courteous to fellow travellers. There were however three guys who were drinking alcohol on the bus and gave your driver jip – however he dealt with this situation in a firm manner to the extent that these guys were like lambs for the remainder of the two days. We travelled with a 10 year old and a 9 year old and our seats at the match were magnificent. I wish to thank you, your driver and your Company for making this trip so special for my family.
Just a quick email to say that we had a great weekend trip to Anfield and thanks for everything we will defo be using your company again.
Thanks very much for another perfect trip to anfield at the weekend top class pity you can't arrange the results as well. Thanks again. Shamus Anglin
I would like to thank you for all your help in booking our trip, the Match was brilliant especially that we won & plenty goals also, the seats very fantastic, I would also like to thank you for putting our group together in the stadium it was a very enjoyable experience, from the boat over to the coach was fantastic the driver of coach was very helpful & funny and kept us all in good spirits from the start of our journey until the end.
I look forward to booking again in the near future.

Helen Walsh here. Our party of 4 went on the Evoke Soaps Tour last weekend with your goodselves. I would like to congratulate Celtic Horizon Tours on what was a fantastic weekend. From start to finish everything ran so smoothly and I must say what a superb coach driver you have in Ken. He was outstanding and went over and above to ensure all his passengers were looked after. The Holiday Inn in Bolton was fabulous and the food & drinks were great. The actors from Coronation Street were superb (although I was a little disappointed myself that I didn't meet Shane Ward - lol - maybe next year). I am looking forward to travelling with your company in the not too distant future and once again please pass on my thanks and regards to the whole team who organised this wonderful weekend.
Helen, Jenny, Rachel & Barbara (Walsh - Party of 4)
What a brilliant weekend had by everybody on the Evoke.ie Coronation Street Dinner, and to top it off Ken the coach driver proved he's more than just a pretty face. Wendy Coleman
HI Jenny. Shamus Anglim here. we arrive back early this morning after our trip to anfield at the weekend just a quick message to say we were absolutely delighted with everything the match tickets and the hospitality suite was second to none we felt like vips. My girls were on their first trip over and they were more than happy. The coach trip was perfect arrive on time on Saturday night and both places we stopped in for refreshments were grand. Both kenath and Michael the coach drivers were more than helpful and friendly. I will be looking forward to traveling with celtic horizon again in the near future. Thanks again.
Had a fantastic time going to the United v West ham match on Sunday, we left early Sunday morning and got home last evening and happy to report that everything went very smoothly, and i think everyone had a great time travelling with you.

Shorecrest High School Marching Band -Absolutely! And I hope you and those with you have heard sufficiently how much we enjoyed the trip and how well everything went. I think this one was the best of the four Deb and I have been on. It was sensational!!! Bravo to all of you!!!
CAPITAL ONE CUP FINAL
I just want to let you have some feedback on my trip. I just want to thank you at Celtic Horizon Tours as everything was absolutely 1st Class and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was our 1st time to travel with your company and I can tell you it definitely will not be our last
Just returned from the Strictly Tour to Manchester really a lovely experience from start to finish . The driver was so helpful and lovely looking forward to traveling with you again xx
The Soaps Tour Brilliant tour from start to finish glad we got to go on the last tour and a big thank you to Anthony our coach driver on Bartons coach a perfect gentleman and most accommodating and helpful thanks to everyone for making the journey so enjoyable .
Ford Mustang Drive Experience, I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent trip on "Route 66" which I have been dreaming about all my adult years (I am now 61 years old). I saw my opportunity when I read an advert from Celtic Horizon Tours and I seized the moment. Well it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I and 18 other people met in Dublin, Ireland and flew to Chicago, Ill. where we picked up our brand new Ford Mustang Convertables 10 in total and drove west. It was to be the best experience of my life. The entire party of 19 only met in Dublin Airport for the first time on what was to be the adventure of a lifetime.
The wonderful thing was we all got on so well together and thanks to Celtic Horizon Tours the adventure was planned down to the very fine details. On our 13 day trip we stayed in 10 different hotels and each hotel was top class with no check-in all we had to do was collect our room keys and proceed to our room. This was much appreciated after a long and very very exciting days driving. I saw so many amazing sights and visited many many iconic places too many to even start mentioning and all under the guidance of Celtic Horizon Tours which meant we missed nothing on "Route 66" as our leaders knew every meter of the way which ensured we saw all that was to be seen. We also were supplied with Sat. Nav.s for those of us who wanted to do their own exploring and every hotel we stayed in was already programmed into the Sat. Nav. so there was no danger of getting lost or not finding our next hotel.
I drove the entire trip myself and I never felt alone or in any kind of danger as I followed the lead car most of the way. I saw many sights each day with every day presenting me with more and more jaw dropping moments. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better it did. I drove through 8 different states, 4 different time zones and approx. 4,000 kilometers. I just want to thank Celtic Horizon Tours for this amazing trip and for their attention to detail all of which gave me the most exciting journey I was ever on.
I with 4 others recently travelled from limerick by coach with your company to watch Ireland v France in Cardiff.. I just wanted to drop you a quick mail to thank you for a fantastic, well organized trip. A special mention for the bus driver who was at all times, courteous, informative and also funny.. Look forward to traveling with you in the future
The Soaps Tour, Hello - myself and the 21 ladies would like to say a massive thanks for this fantastic tour - we had a fabulous weekend and soo worth to visit. Met Dean Fagan aka Luke the mechanic. Everything was so great. From the Dublin Deaf Association.
Ford Mustang Drive Experience. When I won this holiday with Ford I never anticipated what was before me on this journey of a lifetime. To say that this is a bucket list completely is an underestimation on my part. I never thought that such an experience could be so wonderful and all the organisers made it just brilliant. The experience is far more than this journey and as Tony Toner said it's a lifetime to get here and a lifetimes memories that I have . Thank you from the bottom of my heart guys.
Just home from doing the SOAPS Tour it was Fantastic........I would Highly Recommend it, We did spend a lot of time on the coach so stiff legs all round! We met Dean Fagan aka Luke from Corry really nice chatty guy..... Food & Drink is expensive on the Ferry! Hotel was really nice Tommy our Driver so nice THANK YOU
I would like to say a big thank you to Celtic Horizon Tours for a fab weekend over at the Coronation Street / Emmerdale Tour last weekend which i won on 4FM back in April. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and it was great The tour was very well organised from beginning to end. A special thanks to Kevin from Ballincollig Coaches, lovely guy and a great bus driver , very professional, polite and courteous making our journey very comfortable for the whole weekend. We met Luke from Coronation Street and he was a truly lovely guy, it made our day!!
Thanks again for the wonderful prize and keep up the good work.
We got back from the Soaps Tour yesterday evening. Just a quick email to say we had a great time on this tour. It was great value and we got to see so many places. Anthony our coach driver was the best I have ever met. Such a nice helpful person that helped make the tour so enjoyable. Well done to Celtic Horizom tours. Hopefully ye might add some new tours in the future. Alot on our tour said they would love to see The Cotswolds - after seeing how lovely Emmerdale - Esholt was. And finally thank you Lorraine for your assistance prior to the tour. I am looking foward to booking one of your Liverpool football trips soon.

Thank you to the staff of Celtic Horizon Tours who organised the weekend trip to Coronation St and Emmerdale. Special massive thanks goes to our driver Tom Butler for going out of his way to ensure all of us got the most out of the tour and including Michael O'Brien and myself who are deaf. Addition to this tour, we were blessed with lovely weather. We enjoyed from 1st second to the last second of our FANTASTIC weekend. I would recommend Celtic Horizons Tours to everybody.
Hi all at Celtic horizons tours,
Just a quick mail to say how much we enjoyed the soap tour last weekend , from start to finish it was a great weekend . We had the pleasure of a fantastic coach driver John from Ballincollig which made the tour what it was! Great crowd from Cork also made such a difference ! We were also blessed with amazing weather which helped ! I have already had four friends enquire about your tours since I returned which I well recommended .
Once again, many thanks to John our driver for a great weekend !
Barbara & Vera Murphy
I just wanted to email and let you know that we have just returned from a weekend in manchester on the tour mentioned and what a fantastic time we had. It was great from start to finish. Our bus driver, john o Keefe from ballincollig coaches deserves a special mention. His easy going, good humoured personality contributed to the experience and it helped us enjoy it even more
Just a quick mail to say thanks for a wonderful trip to Scotland, everything was prefect. I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next time.
“First of all the trip was awesome and mind blowing ….Definitely the trip of a life time …. Worth every penny (or cent :) ) The tour guide was excellent and even if we called her Sargent Lala, her enthusiasm and love of the environment added to the whole experience. The tour would not have been the same without her. And of course we can’t forget our support driver - Stefano - a great guy and nothing was too much to make our trip as easy as possible.” – Dan Rea & Catherine Kelleher
We have just arrived back from our trip just about to drive off the ferry, I would just like to thank you all at Celtic Horizon for an amazing trip to Anfield to see Liverpool v Newcastle Unired it was absolutely amazing and memorable thank you all so much.
I'd love to know if you's have some sort of savings that can be done with you's so when the fixtures are out for next year out next trip would be paid for in advance is that at all possible.
"Truly an incredible motorcycle experience. Fantastic roads that bought me through mind-blowing scenery that got better and better as each mile was covered. The support team were amazing, guiding me safely across 9 states, 5000k." - Pony Express
I have just returned, with my wife and a couple or family members from the Coronation St./Emmerdale Tour, beginning on Friday 17 Oct and I have to say it was a very pleasant and enjoyable trip. The bus driver, Wayne, was the most courteous, helpful and efficient driver I have had the pleasure to travel with in many years. In fact, I would go so far as to say he was the reason we all had such a great time. He was always punctual and his good humor cheered us up for the whole trip. Thanks again and we will definitely avail of your services again in the near future.
Myself & my friend went on a soap tour from Monaghan last Thurs 25th – Sat 27th on a Mangan bus from Donegal. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip & we especially want to pass on our thanks & compliments to our bus driver Tommy. He was a real pleasure to travel with & at all times a real gentleman which added greatly to our enjoyment of the whole trip.
Our thanks to your company for the professional way everything was handled.
Just returned from our Cornation street tour. Had a wonderful time. Would like to give a special mention regarding our driver Tommy. He was a very pleasant courteous man and is indeed an asset to your company. He made the tour an enjoyable stress free experience. Will certainly use your company again . It was a shame the hotel mercure was very far out from Manchester otherwise it was a lovely place to stay. Thank you Tina and Yvonne McCabe.

Goldwing Treffen 2014
Just back from an amazing soap tour..thanks to everyone who made it such a success..i want to mention Clare who was so helpful prior to our departure and Tom from Wexford our coach driver who could not do enough for us and was so courteous and pleasant which all adds up to make it such a success.
I am writing to you in relation to my weekend break with yourselves to coronation st. I went with 10 members of my family on fri 22nd August. I would like to commend your Company for a very well orgainised tour. From start to finish everything went smoothly. We were a group of people ranging from 10 years of age to 84 years of age and everyone had a fantastic time. I would like to make a special note of thanks to your driver Anthony. He was a terrific tour guide and made the trip special for every single person on the bus.
My one and only complaint would be that the barman in "The Woolpack" would not make a coffee for my elderly aunt because we were on the bus tour. Didn't make any sense.
I will certainly be reccomending your company to all of my family and friends and would like to thank you for a very well orgainised weekend.
John they loved it! They had the best time ever and made lots of new international friends. Not a bad word or negative comment to say about the whole trip. Thank you. All mega positive feedback. In fact they even gave out your company's web address to a few of fellow Route 66 candidates.
My husband &myself went on the soaps tour on the 27th of June with Horizon tours just want to let you know we had a great time.Everything was spot on it was the most hassle free holiday we have ever been on and our driver George was Fantastic thumbs up for George.

Hi Jennifer & all at Celtic Horizon Tours, Hope your are all keeping well this Monday Afternoon in Celtic Horizon Tours I just wanted to drop an email to say Thanks a million for a Great Weekend on the Soaps tours. Mam & Myself had a ball, it was amazing. And Wayne (Our Coach Driver) looked after us all very well considering it was his first Soaps Tour Trip, nothing asked was ever a problem. The Shopping trip to Cheshire Oaks was amazing as soon as we arrived in the UK, so many shops with so many lovely things to buy. Ken (Our Emmerdale Tour Guide) who we picked up along the way to tell us all about the sights of Yorkshire & Leeds & Emmerdale was full of all the information about Emmerdale for us too. The Hotel was lovely too, breakfast was very tasty. I would highly recommend it to everybody who are Big Soap Fans Walking on the Cobbles of the most well know Street in the World is very surreal, and im thrilled i got the chance to experience it I have attached a couple of pictures for you. So all thats left to say is a very Big Thank you to you all at Celtic Horizon Tours for an amazing Birthday Weekend, Myself & my Mum had a great time. Thanks a million Helen
Just letting you know that my friend and I went on above tour this weekend, and really enjoyed it!
The highlight was the tour of the Coronation St Set and it was lovely to be there and feel that you were "part of it"! We both enjoyed all of the weekend, despite the heavy rain in "Emmerdale" Sat morning.
Wayne was very pleasant and there was a nice crowd on the bus. Bewley's Hotel was very nice and the breakfast was great!
Hope you have more of these kind of Tours in the future!
Hello again John,
Just a quick word to thank you for your company at the game last Saturday and your assistance over the weekend. It was a great trip and much of the credit for that must go to Celtic Horizon Tours for the organising of it and the Holiday Inn express where the very relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent facilities all helped to ensure a memorable experience. I expect to be in touch within the next fortnight to finalise a trip to Corrie.
In the meantime I am looking forward to a week in Castlegregory.
