Hi, my name is  Darragh Ó Ríordáin and I've been an Approved Driving Instructor  for over 10 years. ADI number 35002.  I work both as an independent instructor and as part of a busy driving campus.

 Mary Byrne recommends Darragh's Driving School: "I cannot recommend darragh highly enough as a driving instructor! i was lucky enough to have Darragh assist me recently with some pre-test lessons for my test & am delighted to say i passed. Darragh is a highly experienced & knowledgeable driving instructor & really gave me some fantastic tips which gave me the confidence to help me pass. he is a very calm & patient instructor which i really found very helpful. thanks darragh for all of your help - a fantastic instructor all round!" 

"I got it!!!!!! Thank you very much for all your support." Vlad

" Couldn't have passed the driving test without you!" Ray

" Oh my God! You are simply the best.... thanks a million  Darragh for all your help!" Monica

"I never thought I could pass my test but you really gave me the confidence and guidance that made the difference." Patrick 

"Really nice guy to have as a driving instructor. His driving car is really good and comfortable which is quite important. I passed my driving test in the first attempt. He's quite informative while driving, explains every rule and directions in a polite manner.
Would highly really recommend him as an instructor as he's quite flexible in timings and offer a 4 hour lesson in one day as well.
and easy in-terms of payment." Pranav


"I just want to take a moment and thank Darragh for helping me pass my driving test.

I would like to elaborate on the fact that even though I have international driving experience, it was very challenging for me to understand all aspects of driving in Ireland. Darragh helped me eliminate any bad driving habits and his methods are extremely effective. Darragh takes all factors into account in his lessons; technical, psychological, and driver discipline. I have tried several different instructors and I can very confidently say Darragh is simply the best. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in taking lessons with Darragh or even afull license driver interested in gaining confidence in driving." Vivek
