Fair Isle Tours is proud to have been involved in the transport and organisation of the World Youth Games that took place in Athlone, Ireland, in June 2018. Fair Isle Tours provided a significant number of wheelchair accessible vehicles to transport the athletes throughout the event.

During the event,  we had 11 buses on-site every day from 6 am to 10 pm and  we had 14 drivers down in Athlone daily driving our vehicles and providing any support they could. Our transport and event organiser Paddy O’Rourke was also on-site every day from 6 am to at least 7 pm, ensuring everything went according to plan.

 

We are so proud and happy to conclude that the event was a resounding success. It was a real pleasure to be involved in such a momentous occasion and would like to thank everyone at the IWASF for their co-operation, assistance, and for their trust on us. We would also like to thank the athletes involved in being a constant source of inspiration. We hope you enjoy wearing our new  Fair Isle Tours t-shirts and jackets that some of you took back home.

 

We are looking forward to being involved in the next event organised by the IWASF!

Fair Isle Tours is proud to have been involved in the Dublin 2018 World Para Swimming Allianz European Championships. Attended by over 700 team members from 38 different countries across Europe, the event included providing transport over 11 days. Understanding the scale and significance of this event, we were determined to provide an exemplary service to anyone involved.
We worked closely with the organisers of the Paralympics from the outset which included the initial planning and creation of daily transport schedules for athletes, staff, and organisers. Our service also included airport arrivals and departures, staff co-ordination on the ground, and transport from 7 different hotels to and from the competition venue several times a day, from 6 am to 12 am.

We also catered to special requirements such as wheelchair accessible transport for a number of our participants. We adjusted to last-minute needs and we were able to provide additional services when required.

We delivered a satisfactory high-quality service and delivered on all of our commitments with a positive and can-do attitude. As a result, we received excellent feedback from the client who also described our drivers as ‘the most welcoming and courteous.’
We are so grateful to have got an opportunity to work with the Paralympics team, and we hope to plan such successful events again in the future.

Following the visit of the Vice President of the United States inJune 2016, it was our honor to provide support during President Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland between the 5th and 7th of June, 2019.

We co-ordinated the elaborate transportation plan, and ourdrivers were committed toproviding time safe movements for the crew of the Air Force One. Our service included delivering 3 mini-buses, 3 coaches, 6 driverson-call 24 hours a day,positioned over an hour from the airport with numerous pick-ups and drop-offers.

From handling the pre-planned movements, short notice requests, and security requirements, we were able to make President Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland seamless and successful. We would like to thank the USA team for this second opportunity, and we hope to meet your expectations next time as well.
