How does one find a driver during visit to Ireland. There are 9 in our party and we are staying for 8 days.
As a rough Guide. If I did offer the service I would have to rent a commercial Mini Bus. you have 9 people so your run of the mill car rental minibus only seats 9 people, Driver + 8. I would have to use my D1 Licence, and I would have to do it free of charge because if I did charge I would need a bucket full of extra insurance and a couple of other legally required certs. Basically you need a Mini Bus Operator OR you need a mini bus or 2 cars which you or one/two of your party will have to self drive.
You might not like this but it is something your Travel Agent (using the term lightly) or yourselves should have been aware of from the outset.
