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.

Carol Blessing_FeussnerUnited States
Paul was excellent not just in showing us the premier areas but taking us to places others visiting might not get to see. His knowledge helped us understand so much about the area. He was an amazing historian and did it with ease and Irish humor. We loved spending our day with him and learned a little bit about hurling in the end. Very fun!!!

Excellent, Paul got us off the beaten path. He listened to what are interests where and we felt we were not just getting a canned tour. Very informative.

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.
Robert SouthwickUnited States
Another great day of touring with Paul. We toured with him on 2 days and could not have been happier. On the second day he even took us to a Gaelic sports field and gave us a demonstration of the game and even had us trying out some moves! The Cliffs are a must and if possible go with Paul!
Jeffrey MerceronUnited States
Paul was our guide and he was great. He took us to places the tour buses just can't get to. He has a wealth of knowledge to share and he made our tour fun. Paul is very professional and sincere. He very much wanted to ensure that our trip was enjoyable and not overwhelming as some tours can be as they tend to stick to a rigid timetable. Thank you, Paul....

Cheri RulliUnited States
Paul did a great job on showing us around the western part of Ireland in a whirlwind tour of the Cliffs of Moher and the Burrens. we definitely were able to go places that the big tour buses cannot reach. Thanks Paul!!
Richard MaloyUnited States
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.
Gigi SmithUnited States
This was a fantastic day trip with Paul along the back roads of Galway. He was very knowledgeable about the area. The scenery is spectacular. Having 4 golfers on his tour, his lunch choice of Lahinch Golf Club was great. We stopped for ice cream at Linnella Irish Ice Cream, a place we would not have found on our own. Paul is a very professional tour guide.
Julieanne WarnerUnited States
My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Paul O. in June! He was knowledgable about all the sites and catered the tour to our likes! We had a wonderful day and we would recommend him to any who would like a tour of Western Ireland.
Maureen SkurekUnited States
Paul was FABULOUS! His was, by far, the best tour we had in Ireland. He toured us around Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, had amusing anecdotes and took us through lanes and byways we would never have seen on our own or with a large tour group. I highly recommend Paul O. and would hire him again if we are ever back in the west of Ireland!
Mimi LevUnited States
We loved our tour with Paul We enjoyed all of the extras he added to the experience, poems, music, jokes, historical lore, and lesser known sights along the way. Paul was prompt and personable. We would definitely go on another tour with him if the opportunity arose.
David KrehmeyerUnited States
Tours by locals and Paul O. in particular, made this a fantastic trip. Paul stopped often and gave us an insiders tour of the country. The Burren was so interesting, and the Cliffs fantastic. Thank you again, for a wonder, personal tour. It is the only way to see the country!

We took Paul's tour to Cliffs of Moher and the Burren on July 7 and it was fabulous. Definite 5 out of 5 in every way possible. Paul is fun to hang out with and extremely knowledgable. We recommend him highly and can't wait to come back and ride with him again! Joan
Donna WilsonUnited States
Spent a great day with Paul seeing the Burren and Cliffs of Mowr. Outstanding service, he is a great guide
Mark AlberhaskyUnited States
Paul was without peer among the guides we used recently in Ireland. His charming personality, wit and depth of knowledge regarding matters of history and culture made our time with him a rich experience. If having a driver who stops to read poetry or play music inspired by the location where you're parked appeals to you, Paul is your man. Our other Irish guides were pleasant but his professionalism clearly made him a standout. Highly recommended.
Jean CarlonUnited States
We loved touring with Paul!! He was very knowledgeable, funny, and gracious - and will wholeheartedly recommend him to all of our friends heading to West Ireland.
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!!
Joyce HaunLOUISIANA, United States
Thanks to Paul's informative way we have learned so much more about this part of Ireland than we ever would have on our own. We are very glad that we chose Paul for our guide.
Dave WaffleUnited States
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
Mike FitzgeraldUnited States
We had a remarkable day with Paul. He went out of his way to make us welcome and to share his knowledge and love of Ireland with us. He had just the right mix of current and historical information along with a very good sense of humor. Paul was totally focused on making our day perfect in every way. I can highly recommend him to anyone seeking a fun and educational experience.
Joan PhillipsUnited States
Could not have been more pleased. Customized to our needs and congenial and knowledgeable.
Barbara GambrelUnited States
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.
Jim JarmuthUnited States
Bonnie DumanUnited States
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.
