Testimonials

Here at J&K Coaches we believe that the customer comes first and do everything to ensure they are happy with the service we deliver. With that in mind we are pleased to say that this is the longest page on our website:

  • Just a quick word to say how much myself and my Year 8 football team enjoyed our trip today to Castlewellan. The coach was top class and our driver Dee was a total gentleman. The boys really took to him. We will definitely be back to J&K in the future.

    Mark Duffy

  • The entire experience with J&K Coaches was first class, 2nd to none. From the minute I gave Margaret an idea on where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see (even though my geography was awful) until our driver Neil dropped us Dublin, was unreal. We travelled with 6 adults and 2 infants, both under 1 yr. From Derry, to Donegal and The Giants Causeway. Traveling the west coast of Ireland for 4 days, stopping in various towns on the way. Margaret handled everything for us. Booked our hotels, meals, park passes etc. She then tracked us the entire time on the trip, if we were running late would call ahead and let the restaurants know, we didn't have to worry about a thing. Every hotel we stayed in was great, food was very good at dinner/lunch, she done a great job and we always felt she was always going over and beyond for us. If I was ever going to travel again, I would definitely use J&K, I would request Neil, (they don't came much better than him) top notch driver, knew his way around Ireland like the back of his hand, had a lot of knowledge of the areas we visited and never complained, not once, even with 2 crying babies in his ear. Such a nice man. I would recommend these guys over and over again for any travel, small or large groups they can accommodate you. Until next time, thank you all at J&K Coaches

    Noel Thompson (24th February 2016)

  • Travelled to Ballina for 3 nights New Year celebrations. From arriving at our pick up at Springfield Ind. Estate until our return home we cannot speak highly enough of Neil our driver. He was much more than just a driver as he took care of everything from suitcases, our comfort on the bus, checking into hotel, looking after us at the dinner table, making sure that we integrated for our evenings' entertainment - in fact he was superb and J&K Coaches are very lucky to have him.We have travelled with many other tour operators but this one was 100 per cent. Thank you

    We would also particularly like to thank our driver Nigel, his sterling work and courtesy ensured all our transport requirements were met with ease.

    Excellent job Folks! We couldn’t have asked for more!

    Many thanks from all at EDGE Innovate.

  • This is our second year of using your company for our trip to Valkenburg. I would like to thank you again for an excellent coach that was in excellent condition, friendly and useful advice from Nigel before we left and an extra special mention to our driver Sean. Sean made our trip very enjoyable and his confident driving and navigation, friendly manner and sense of humour made him a very valuable member of our team for the week. I will definitely be requesting your company again and Sean

    Gillian Grant (2nd July 2014)

  • We were fortunate recently to have two of your drivers taking our school party to Normandy and Paris. They were extremely patient and tolerant of our 12 and 13 year olds and went out of their way to be helpful to us. Thanks to them our pupils enjoyed their trip, as did the staff. As one of my colleagues said, 'a driver can make or break a trip like this' and they certainly made it for us! Many thanks to Mr Quinn and Mr Quinn, Gerard and Stephen.

    Quote

    Eileen McCullagh (1st July 2014)

  • I feel it would be unfair not to contact you and let you know how we got on using your company last week. We were picked up on time and collected again at the end of our outing all without any fuss as you would expect from any good coach company. However your driver Malisa deserves great praise. Nothing was too much trouble for her and when we were not ready at the agreed pick up time in the afternoon she did not get flustered or angry but quietly made a few calls sorted out drivers and routes etc, obviously with your help too Sharon.

    This meant our group did not have to leave without their lunch which we had pre-paid for. After all this Malisa then took our group home making a detour into Dungannon allowing some of our group to get off near their homes saving the rest of us a lot of extra runs later on.

    All in all a we had a fantastic day out with the group and it was made so much smoother and less stressful by the professionalism of your driver. We will certainly recommend your company and Malisa to anyone we speak to.

  • I would just like to take the time you let you know how impressed we were with the service we received from you and your company.

    The band has been in existence since 1978 and with one of the founding members still playing, he tells me that the 2 drivers were 2 of the best he's ever met.

    They could not do enough for us, helping us to pack the bus etc

    I cannot praise J&K enough for the service you offer!

    Danielle McCartney (24th July 2014)

  • I am writing to inform you of how delighted we, the entire staff, were with your company and especially your driver, Mr Nigel Skuce.

    The epitome of professionalism combined with warm-natured encounters with the students made Nigel the perfect person for the job, and I commend you on having such a high calibre of personnel working within your organisation.

    We will definitely be recommending you to others and procuring your services in the future.

    Swedish Bowls Federation (19-Apr-2013)

  • Thanks for organising the bus - it all went off without a hitch! Just for your interest, I would highly recommend J&K Coaches - the driver (Nigel) was very helpful, picked up and dropped off exactly where we needed and was very understanding when a pupil was sick (it was all contained inside a bag, but still!). On the way home, he had to swap buses at Dungannon so we got a free upgrade for the second half of the journey on a luxury coach. Jonny and I both thought that they are a company worth using again

To win such a prestigious award is testament to the quality of service provided by J&K Coaches, a small local company based in Ardboe. This achievement is even more impressive, given the backdrop of the current economic climate, and tribute must be paid to Jim and Kevin for their progressive and innovative approach to ensure their business continues to grow in a very volatile marketplace. J&K Coaches possess all the hallmarks of professionalism and success and I look forward to following their progress in the future

  • Newcomer Award: This acknowledges new entrants to the industry and the Federation. It is always a pleasure to visit new operators and this award was hotly contested and any of the contenders could have won. But the winners stood out head and shoulders above all the rest. Here is a company run by two young men who have set out right from the start to do the job right. Not only are their vehicles, their staff and facilities a credit to them but the way the business is run is exemplary. They may be a young company but if anyone wants to see how the job should be done they are the perfect example and a credit to the Federation. The award goes to Jim and Kevin Quinn of J&K Coaches.
