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.

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

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.

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!!

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.

Kieran is an excellent guide and most importantly an awesome driver. He picked us up at our hotel in a very comfortable van. We were a group of 5 including 2 teenage boys. He taylored our trip so that it was interesting for everyone. He is very knowledgeable about Ireland including history, politics and culture. Kieran is a very entertaining speaker and storyteller. Because of his knowledge and driving skills we were able to get a very comprehensive tour of Dublin in one day.

Kieran fits A LOT into his day (in a very good way). He knows his history inside and out and explains it so it is interesting to everyone. He plans and allows for you to take as much time as you like to explore some of the sites he takes you too. The gardens at Powerscourt were amazing and we had ample time to explore. You'll truly enjoy your day with Kieran. I highly recommend!

Kieran was a delight and very knowledgeable about Dublin and the countryside. He customized the tour to our wishes, plus suggested sights we did not know about which made the tour even more interesting. Would use him again when in Dublin. Seeing the countryside in the Wicklow region and the Russborough House also a treat. The Tavern near the ruins built by the monks was superb. Order their bangers and mash and have Irish coffee.

Kieran C was timely and informative. After learning a bit about our likes, he tailored the tour to show us sites of shared interest, including personal touches. He gave us time to explore independently ... something I greatly appreciated, while always being readily available for us. Even when we felt fatigued, his enthusiasm and knowledge helped us regain energy. Overall, the single BEST way we could have started our Ireland holiday.

I don't even know where to begin to describe how exceptional this "ToursByLocals" was for our family! Kieran was kind, thoughtful, professional, interesting, and friendly from start to finish -- and he was with us for 10+ hours! He catered the tour itinerary to our specifics while still keeping the general scope of the outing intact. Because of his service and spirit, we not only saw but took in culturally more than we could have on our own or with a mega/bus tour -- he made our trip truly memorable.

We had a fantastic day with Kieran. We were a group of four, which included our 19 and 22 year old sons, and we thoroughly enjoyed Kieran's in-depth knowledge, humor and story-telling. While we had an overall plan for the day, we stayed at individual locations for as long as we liked, and Kieran was quite adept at modifying the schedule throughout the day. One of the best parts of the day was having lunch with Kieran, and talking about life in Ireland. You will not be disappointed.

Kieran is well versed in Ireland history and geography and can speak like a New Yorker without local accent. He planned a very comprehensive tour of Dublin for the 6 of us from US covering the city and nearby sites including Wicklow and Glendalough in 7 hours. We also enjoyed the fun filled ride in a spacious Mercedes with conversations about Ireland culture, history and perceptive global views of politics. He made the Dublin tour the highlight of our trip which included many cities in UK and Ireland.

BEST day tour on our British Isles trip. Kieran knows Dublin and the Wicklow area and he treated us to an unforgettable adventure. Stopping for photos of the sheep on the countryside...no problem. More time at the Avoca weaving sheds,,,,not to mention the shop...take your time. Dublin and the Wicklow Moutain area is best seen through the eyes of a local guide in a small group. We hope to return to Ireland and will definitely check out Tours by Local first.

Kieran gave a comprehensive and informative tour where we visited various locations in the Boyne Valley - Newgrange, Monasterboice, Hill of Slane, Trim Castle & Hill of Tara. He is an engaging, intelligent and amusing host & I cannot recommend him highly enough. I don't believe you will find a better tour guide operating in the Dublin area. If you want to get out of Dublin into the Irish countryside & learn about a history that goes back 5,000 years this is the tour to book.

This tour was the highlight of our trip after watching the TV show Ballykissangel for many years. The town of Avoca was so charming. Kieran was just exceptional and met all our needs. He has great knowledge and is a pleasure to listen to. Please take the time to see this beautiful area if able. You will not be disappointed.

Kieran's tour was the highlight of our trip. Not only was he very knowledgable, he was also delightful to be around. The sights that we visited are amazing. Newgrange is spectacular, and if you're looking to visit a medieval castle, look no further than Trim. I couldn't recommend this tour more!!

Fabulous guide despite the limited time for the tour. Keiran' s briefing on the cultural, political and historical aspects of the city were most welcome, particularly the focus on the Vikings. He managed to avoid the crowds thus making our visit to St. Patrick Cathedral very easy. Kieran has a great sense of humor and was very attentive to the needs of one of the couples who had a meeting in the city following the tour. He dropped them off at the site. A plus: a very comfortable car for 4 persons.

We had a great time with Kieran on each of the three full day tours we took with him. He is a fount of knowledge and not at all scripted. He was always on time and flexible as we went along. We could not have been more pleased with the tours.

We had an absolutely perfect day with Kieran! He got us out early and ahead of the crowds,which made a world of difference at Newgrange. Kieran is very personable and knowledgeable, making our day even better than I expected. This is my 5th trip to Ireland and Kieran brought us to locations that still took my breath away. I am hoping to see him again on my next trip!

My sister and I had Kieran for three days on three separate tours. He was an excellent guide, by far one of the best we've ever had. He was always on time, extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and with a great personality overall. He also went out of his way to provide assistance to help us with a laptop we had misplaced at the start of our journey. We enjoyed our time with Kieran immensely and would highly recommend his services.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time with Kieran on our Newgrange and Boyne Valley tour. We really enjoyed the scope of history and Keiran's extensive knowledge. He showed us sites we would not have found on our own and provided great context to the sites visited. I would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Ireland.

Kieran was terrific! He met us(family of 4-ages 30's and 60's) at the pier and off we went for a day in Dublin. Not a minute wasted on his all day Dublin City tour - even when traffic was stalled he went to an alternative sight. He is very knowledgeable about Dublin and Irish culture but most of all he is witty and humorous! There was never a dull moment on this tour. We ended the day in a local pub with Kieran helping us order local food/drink. WOW... what an amazing meal and great stories we shared!

The tour provided by Kieran was informative, fun, interesting and worth every penny. Our trip to Newgrange and the Boyne Valley was the most memorable part of our trip to Ireland, thanks to Kieran's deep knowledge of the history of the area and his style of presentation. We would encourage others to take advantage of this type of tour to make their trip as enjoyable as ours.

Kieran provided a fantastic tour! He was a pleasure to spend the day with. Our tour with him was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Kieran is smart, funny, and patient. He answered all questions with a candor that we appreciated and enjoyed. With him, we felt like this day was spent well in historically significant places with someone who understood Irish culture, current and historical events and could convey them well. It really was a great day. Thanks Kieran!!!

We made some slight changes in the itinerary and he put it all together beautifully. I and the others in our group highly recommend him. Great, great guide.

Imagine being picked up at your hotel and escorted to a lovely Mercedes Benz! That is how my day started with Kieran and while I thought it couldn't get better, it did! Kieran was a fantastic host and historian as he drove me through the City of Dublin and out to the Oceanside. I discovered there were parts of Dublin...including 40 foot drop that I would have never have known about if I didn't take this lovely private tour with Kieran. I will take it again..

If I had to take one tour in Ireland, Wicklow would be it. If this isn't the most beautiful place on earth, it certainly is a contender. I have used a lot of private tour guides and Kieran ranks at the top. He knows facts about every nook and cranny. The drive down the coast takes you through a lot of Irish history as well as having some suprises. Kieran has a great sense of humor and a wealth of knowledge about Irish history. I would recommend him highly and intend to use him again on my next trip.
