Paul made our day tour of Connemara comfortable and interesting. He took us to places and pointed out sites that we could not have found in a guide book. We especially enjoyed seeing the beautiful stained glass window by Evie Hone in the Kilmilkin Church. His knowledge of the area and the history was excellent, and we enjoyed his sense of humor.

Paul was amazing! Very knowledgeable about everything we saw and it's history. Our tour was Kylemore Abbey and Connemara, and he stopped at additional stops for us just to make sure we saw everything! I would absolutely recommend 100%!!!

Paul was fantastic! Our family toured with him 2 days and could not have had a more enjoyable time. His stories and humor were greatly apprecaited. We saw so much more with him than we could have ever done on our own. Learning about the Irish people and their history was great! We all agreed that Paul is the best!

Paul was punctual, never rushing, took us to see many places not even mentioned in the guides that I read, and to all of the places we requested. He even entertained us on the way back to our hotel with US trivia questions, leaving us with a fun end to a beautiful tour. We enjoyed his company and coversations as well. A real gentleman. Thank you, and yes I would recommend him to my friends should they be visiting this area.

We had a delightful tour of Connemara with Paul. He is very knowledgeable and clearly knows the area intimately. He took us to some lesser known sights and to a great place for lunch. One of the highlights was near the end of the tour when we stopped at field where hurling is played and Paul demonstrated for us the basic skills you need to play hurling. Quite a game - which we knew nothing about. We highly recommend this tour with Paul.

What a wonderful way to see Conemara, Kylemore and Cong in a single day! Paul as such a wonderful and informative guide. We were able to stop any where to take pictures and get a bit more of a history lesson. I cannot think of a better way to see a country than the personal tour given to us. Paul, thank you so much for being such a wonderful guide!

Our party of 5 took two tours with Paul. Both were excellent because Paul is a very informed and interesting guide who was very flexible in accommodating the varied interests of all our travelers. His extra touches such as providing poetry readings, taped music and even the experience of hitting with a hurling stick were all we could have asked for and provided great memories of Ireland. We would certainly rate Paul 5 out of 5 for both tours

I have traveled extensively over the last twenty years and have used a tour service a great many times. Our tour guide, Paul, was by far the best we have ever had. He was extremely knowledgable about the history and very professional in all respects. He truly made our tour a very memorable one. I would highly recommend him.

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.

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.

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!
