We highly recommend Paul for a tour in Galway and the surrounding countryside. He was personable and knowledgeable about the area. He was flexible in arranging stops throughout the day since our party of 6 enjoyed walking and hiking along the countryside. He arranged a lovely lunch at a local golf course after visiting the Burrens then took us to the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher. He had a nice sense of humor and enjoyed telling jokes and playing music along the way. You will enjoy your time with Paul.

We are beyond delighted by our experience with Paul! I shudder to think of all we would have missed had we opted to go to the Cliffs of Moher on our own. From the sites we saw to the people (and animals!) we met, Paul brought County Clare to life. We will never forget our experience, which is just the beginning. We can't wait to come back.

An absolute delight! Paul squeezed us in to his busy schedule with very short notice. We did a "custom" tour driving Galway to Cork and he was a charming host! His car was comfortable, he was funny and fun--keeping us all entertained as well as providing all kinds of information, found great places to stop, managed the time well, and is an excellent driver on seriously crazy roads. We couldn't have asked for more in a guide and would recommend him to anyone.

Paul was an amazing tour guide, and we can't recommend him highly enough. Our flight was delayed six hours due to a security incident in Manchester, and he was still waiting to pick us up at the airport when we finally landed! We obviously had to cut our tour significantly from what we had originally hoped to cover, but Paul did an excellent job focusing on what was most important to us, and getting us to our hotel safely. I only wish we could've spent more time with him.

Paul and this trip to Ireland were all that we hoped for - and more!! We were a group of 5 (family group - ages 23 to 94) and initially spent 6 nites in Galway for a meeting of my work. Then we got picked up by Paul for a 3 nite/4 day adventure based out of Killarney. Paul was professional/interesting/accommodating/fun and very knowledgeable about Ireland, traditions, etc! We went in his Vito Mercedes van and he drove us all around (and is an EXCELLENT driver!) - and the narration was great - 5 stars!!

Paul was a bit rough at the start as he spent too much time introducing every other building and government facility, and the broken microphone system on our bus didn't help. But after he cracked some jokes and started interacting with our students, he really started to warm up. He took us to some great little places that weren't on our itinerary but were along the way. A surprise highlight was when we stopped at a futbol pitch to play hurling. Overall we'd be happy to hire Paul again!

If you're ever in Galway, Ireland contact Paul for a fantastic tour. His knowledge of the area is second to none and you'll see sights not possible by a bus tour. We had originally planned on driving our rental car but decided on the private tour with Paul. That was the best decision we made in Ireland. Not only did we see incredible scenery, learn so much about the country but we made a new friend.

Paul was exactly what our family of 4 (adults) wanted: a genial, knowledgeable, and patient guide. As a bonus, his skill in Gaelic - including how the government promotes it - added valuable context to Ireland, both ancient and modern. He knew what to see, how to go, where to eat and find bathrooms. Each stop included encyclopedic and fascinating info, and he found ways during our 2 days to personally involve each of us in the experience. We couldn't have been happier with Paul, a true professional.

My friends and I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and our tour guide Paul to everyone. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Paul was super. He was well prepared, extremely knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. He customized the day to meet our needs and really went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time. I wouldn't hesitate to book again with tours by locals and definitely with Paul O. Cheers!!

Paul went over and beyond our expectations! His efforts paid off, too. We were able to visit the people and places of our ancestors. It truly was a magical day and we have Paul to thank for it!

Paul's tour was just what we wanted, a chance to learn about local history and culture at our own pace. He was great about adapting to our needs, spending a bit more time here and a bit less time there. Being a local, he added so much to our day, not just taking us to the most visited sights and rattling off the information as we might hear in a large group tour, he adjusted the tour all throughout the day to what we wanted to see. Thanks Paul for a great day in Ireland!

We have spent two days with Paul and are very happy that we booked with him for both our trips. He was extremely informative and took us on many of the country side roads that a tour bus could never have traveled. We will ask for Paul again if we come back.

We began the tour with a general idea of what we wanted to do. Paul was very flexible and easy to work with as we progressed through the day and changed the plan several times. He is very knowledgeable about the area and presents this knowledge and a very pleasant and entertaining way. I would recommend Paul to anyone who wants to learn all about Connemara.

Excellent tour by Paul. The Aran Islands are definitely worth seeing and Paul's local knowledge and winning personality were what made the day so enjoyable. My wife and I were so impressed by the fact that Paul also spoke the Irish language, which gave the tour a little more meaning. I highly recommend this tour by Paul.

Paul is charming and knows the area well. His car is comfortable and he is accommodating. We had a great day. He recapped the day's highlights at the close of the tour. The Burren and the Dolmen was fascinating. So was Doolin

We traveled with Paul on a customized tour route of his Conemara & Kylemore tour. It was much the same as described but he added in the Village of Cong and Ashford Castle for us. He did a wonderful job explaining the areas we visited, answering our questions and showing us the beautiful countryside we had requested. He was very kind and courteous, a true gentleman with a good sense of humor. Thanks Paul!

Paul customized the tour to accommodate my 13yo daughter and 20yo son's interests. Could not have asked for a better tour or tour guide. It was informative, it was fun, it kept the whole family interested. Tour ran way over allotted time, which we never guessed because he never gave any indication of time running shot. Paul and this tour are highly recommended.

Our tour consisted of The Cliffs of Moher and The Burrens. Paul's characteristics include, a true gentleman, polite, knowledgeable, interesting to listen to, and made the tour a complete delight. He went out of his way to see that we enjoyed ourselves and even included sites that he thought we would enjoy. He truly went over and above what was expected of him. I would recommend Tours by Locals for your stay in Ireland and especially Paul as your guide.

Paul was a fabulous guide! He went out of his way to prepare an itinerary that matched our specific interests. He asked for feedback during the day, so he could give us more or less time at certain sites, according to our wishes. He was very knowledgeable in the history of Ireland & the particular area we toured, as well as the geology of The Burren. He took us to out-of-the-way places that only "locals" would be aware of. Finally, he waited with us at the bus stop, to see us safely on our way to Dublin.
