Mackin Travel was established in 1988 by Frank Mackin and his wife Una Joy. We are fully licensed and bonded by the Irish Commission for Aviation Regulation. Our Tour Operator Licence number is 207 and our Travel Agents Licence number is 485. This means that if you book any holiday from Ireland through us your money is totally safe.
All of our tours and holiday deals have been meticulously planned by Frank Mackin and his management team. Our high level of service is well known, but there is no mystery about how we do it. The ‘secret’ to our escorted tours is in the planning and detail, an unswerving commitment to quality in everything we deliver, and listening very carefully all the time to what our clients are saying. Our research has shown that on our escorted tours over 60% of the passengers are repeat customers. This support is never taken for granted and is always appreciated.
I accompany the majority of our escorted tours and the other ones are led by a senior member of Mackin Travel. This is very important as it makes sure that your tour runs as smoothly as possible.
ARE WE THERE YET ?
That is the one question that our tour guides and myself are frequently asked on our escorted tours. I firmly believe that a tour should be a no rush affair. Normally on our excursions we leave the hotel about 0930am to return at about 5.30pm. We always allow for plenty of comfort stops when travelling. There is no enjoyment in travelling for say 3 hours without a stop or trying to cram in too much in one day. On our tours we want you to see a lot without coming home exhausted. I have been in the travel business for over 40 years and I feel that it is no holiday if you are leaving the hotels too early and returning too late. If you have any queries on any of our tours please phone us on 053 9122121 and speak to a real person based in Wexford, Ireland. You wont have to press numbers for various options.
I thank you for visiting our website and hope that you will be able to travel with us in 2017.
