We learned so much from Kieran He was so congenial and knowledgeable. He took us through the countryside as well as through Dublin and to the perfect pub for lunch. The day was one of the high points of our trip. We would absolutely ask for him again. It was like having a friend proudly show us his city.

Highly recommend Kieran! We walked off the ship and found him easily. The car was comfortable and clean. Kieran was very informative and very passionate about Ireland. We enjoyed the day and made it back to the ship in plenty of time.

Our tour with Kieran was superb! He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The van he drove was clean, and comfortable. His lunch spot was quaint and delicious. We did this tour and he threw in a quick stop to cast a fly fishing line on the Boyne. Our time with Kieran was a highlight of our time in Ireland!
Rachel NugentUnited States
Our tour guide was Kieran. We had a customized tour that took us to Newgrange and then inland to Meath and Westmeath to see some genealogical sites of interest that my Father had identified. Kieran was as excited as we were because he had not been to a lot of this countryside. We found several ruins, had lunch in a small town, and had awesome conversations during the drive. Kieran is a great historical interpreter, commentator and overall a 5-star professional. We wish we could just do it again.

Kieran's knowledge and expertise at dispensing it were tremendous. His ability to get as much as possible into the time allowed was great. We would highly recommend him for any tour that you can think up.
Kieran is a personable, and knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour who showed five ladies a wonderful day while on a shore excursion from the QEII. I must travel with a mobility scooter, and he was totally aware of my limitations and had pre-planned alternate venues for me if the itinerary proved too challenging. A true professional; I highly recommend him.

Sharon WebbUnited States
Our experience was nothing less than excellent! Kieran was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. He provided excellent communications prior to our tour and was more than generous in working with our delayed flight arrival. Our van was very comfortable and was perfect for our group of 6. Kieran was simply a delight and an outstanding guide!
Barb C.United States
Our family had an awesome tour with Kieran to the Cliffs of Moher and many lovely stops and sights along the way! He gave us as much info and time as we wanted and we were able to squeeze in many picturesque stops throughout our day in western Ireland.
Dave AddisUnited States
There is nobody with whom I'd rather spend a day or two in Ireland than Kieran. He's a terrific guy — friendly, outgoing, and a walking, talking encyclopedia on all things Irish: history, culture, literature, geography, archaeology, politics, you name it. Kieran knows every crook and cranny of Dublin, the wild cliffs of the west coast, the stunning countryside of Wicklow — and which little wayside pubs serve the best fish-and-chips you'll *ever* taste. Did two tours with Kieran, loved every minute!!
Joan K.United States
What a wonderful day with Kieran. He was funny and very knowledgeable. Even the security guard at the port told us we were lucky to have him as our guide. We were never rushed and he added some things for us to see that he thought we would enjoy. As others have said he is the best!
Dave AddisUnited States
Kieran is terrific ... friendly, knowledgeable, just a delight to spend the day with. We learned so much on this tour, had a great time, we give the gentleman the highest possible recommendation.
Jonathan McCullersUnited States
Kieran is as advertised in the other reviews...extremely knowledgeable, funny, and opinionated (in a good way)! We did Boyne valley...2 stops that were big tourist sites and he sped us through seamlessly, and 2 off the beaten path that were equally great without other tourists. Highly recommended. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
Mary LundinUnited States
Great guide. Knows all the little special harbors and places to go around Dublin. Very delightful.
Ken PetersUnited States
Kieran and the tour were great. He was very engaging and told wonderful stories. The one suggestion that I would make is that he add a mike and speaker to the van. With the road noise, the people in the far back seat had difficulty hearing him.
Norbert (bert) S.United States
Outstanding tour guide. Princess Cruise messed up our pick up but Kieran stayed with us until we found a way to unite. Gave a great tour with a lot of exuberance, we got a great feel for Dublin.Recommend him highly!!!
Karen HeltonUnited States
We lost our hearts to Ireland and it was all due to Kieran. The entire day was fantastic and far exceeded our expectations. Besides being so knowledgeable about Dublin, Kieran was charming and so fun to be with. He was punctual, and patient with every question we had. My daughter's greatest desire was eating at an Irish pub and the one he took us to for lunch was wonderful. We hope to come back to Ireland, and when we do, we will definitely book Kieran to show us around.
Christopher BerryUnited States
Kieran expertly guided us through 5,000 years of Irish history on a day-long tour through the scenic Boyne Valley. He thoughtfully focused our time and attention on five sites and delved deeply into their significance in Irish history and culture. We spent our time well, enjoying Kieran's interesting, informative and entertaining commentary. He listened well and answered our many questions with directness, candor and humor. We look forward to our return to Ireland and future experiences with Kieran.
Christopher BerryUnited States
Kieran provided us with an excellent overview of Dublin and its environs. His informative and entertaining day-long commentary covered a breadth of interesting topics, places and people — from the Vikings to Bono — in and about Dublin. He patiently answered our many questions, skillfully blending his expertise and humor while presenting the very best Dublin offers and deftly maneuvering its narrow streets. We appreciated his passion for all things Irish and look forward to our next tour with him.
Ty FordWoodland Hills, CALIFORNIA, United States
Kieran was outstanding! Passionate about history and expertly knowledgeable! Kieran was thoughtful and strategic on how to make the most of our day. We were the first to arrive at Newgrange (and got in for free because its visitor centre was under construction), and were able to see it without delay. He took us to many other Boyne Valley attractions (Hill of Slane, Slane Castle, Trim Castle) and customized the itinerary for us to include the HIll of Tara. Would definitely hire again!
Tim MurphyUnited States
Kieran was spectacular, his car was perfect, he's a very good driver and we all could hear his every word. He got us into Kilmainham Prison when we didn't have tickets and he found an address for one of our fathers' who was born in Dublin and left in 1923. He was the best guide we had on our trip.

Kieran was a great guide and driver. He was great with our 10 and 11 year old girls. He had us purchase timed entrance tickets ahead of time so we didn't have to wait in any lines. It was a very organized tour and he recommended a great pub for dinner after our tour.
Randy ShopeUnited States
On time and quite entertaining. Very well informed of the area. Would use again.
Nancy QuinnUnited States
We had a wonderful day in Dublin with Kieran. He picked us up promptly at our ship, took us through the suburbs of Dublin, next to Powerscourt Estate and then to a local pub (The Stag's Head) for lunch. Afterwards, we visited St. Patrick's Cathedral and Trinity College to see The Book of Kells. His vehicle was clean & comfortable for 4 adults and accommodated my collapsible mobility chair. We used the WhatsApp app and were always to keep in touch with him. We would tour with him again. Nancy Quinn
Kevin K.BOULDER CITY, NV, United States
Kieran was an amazing guide. So funny, knowledgeable, & personable. We enjoyed his extensive knowledge of Ireland's history and how he helped us navigate around large crowds from tour buses. Our van was very comfortable and was the perfect way to travel around Ireland.
Terry EdwardsUnited States
It is said that travel broadens the mind...inspiring a new perspective of somewhere familiar, or a treasure hidden in a place currently unknown. That is exactly what Kieran accomplished during our Wicklow - Private Tour. Kieran customized the tour so that we could see and experience a varied bit of Wicklow. We went to Dublin Bay - Lough Tay - Glendalough - a Sheepdog Demonstration and enjoyed a fantastic lunch together. His knowledge and insight is incredible. How fortunate we were! Highly recommend!!
Robert TunmireUnited States
Great guide and wonderful day !!
Michael MitchellUnited States
We've often used Tours by Locals and I can honestly say Kieran has been the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable of any guide we've experienced. We spent a thoroughly delightful day exploring the history of Boyne Valley with him. And to top it off his sense of humor is truly a gift. We highly recommend him.
