Approach

Founded in 2004 by Garreth Cooke, Emerald Chauffeur Drive was setup as a division of Emerald Elite Group. Emerald Elite Group is a tour operator and destination management company (dmc). Emerald Chauffeur Drive has thrived as a result of handling the transportation services for the tour operator divisions of the company.

Our overall approach is very wholesome and organic. Garreth was aware there was a gap in the tour operator market due to the lack of tour operators with their own transport. To this day the competition is made up of a myriad of subcontractors – We are one of the few tour operators with a fleet of vehicles at our disposal. We've grown modestly from one vehicle to one of top five Irish chauffeur drive and mini coach operators. Our approach as a tour operator is to provide value to clients without compromising the best possible service. We achieve this with Emerald Chauffeur Drive as our transportation arm.

We handle the chauffeur and transportation for multinational companies, VIPs, Executives and several private aviation clients. Our ethos is one of discretion, reliability, professionalism and security for our clients.
