Just a quick note of massive thanks for the support of you and the DB team for our recent trip to Barcelona. The trip was excellent from start to finish with all elements running smoothly. Did not think it could surpass last year but it did, even the weather was better. The facilities in Cambrils were excellent and all the players and parents were asking in the airport on the way home are we going back next year. Thanks again I could not recommend Darren and the DB team any higher.

We, Clontarf u13 competed in the Costa Duarada Cup based in Salou in Easter 23. Our lads and their parents had the time of their lives, everything was organised so well, the food, accommodation and transport, so we only had to concentrate on playing and having fun together. DB Sports were a pleasure to deal with, from picking the tournament, advising on flights and setting up personalised payment options.

Words cannot express how happy this experience has left my family….but I will try. Before my son Evan left Texas for Ireland, he was a lost soul traversing through each day without a sense of purpose. By taking this trip he got to experience a different culture, study and train at DBS in the sport he loves, and stay with a wonderful family. Through the culmination of these experiences he now has clarity, a path forward, and a renewed love for the game of football. From the very bottom of my heart, thank you to our host family for opening up your home to our son. I know these are difficult times, but you did this for him anyway. I don’t know how we will ever repay you, but we are forever in your debt. Thank you Darren and the DBS staff for your support throughout the program. He now gets to say he trained in Ireland for 180 days and you made his dream of playing “college soccer” (a blasphemous term I know) a reality. I am extremely happy with the outcome. As parents, our main goal is to give our kids the tools to live out their dreams. The smile on Evan’s face and jubilant energy in his tone assures us he has been and will be doing just that. Thank you!

DB Sports Tour Staff are amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Barcelona. Their organization and planning was top notch combined with their years of experience to adjust and accommodate to our group's needs and wants on the fly was impressive. Their connections and experience to offer the best tailored experience for your group is unmatched. I was beyond impressed on how effortless they made it seem. I won't book with anyone else.
