Sean was a great tour guide/driver. He took us to all of the places we wanted to see and then to other sites of interest. He was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable about the area. This was just 1 of the private tours we booked through Tours By Locals and we highly recommend them.
Rick L.United States
Sean is extremely knowledgeable and very flexible. He accommodated our physical limitations. He is a very charming Dubliner. He was a delight to spend time with.

We were three days in Dublin before a cruise and spent the first and third with Sean Patrick. There were four of us on this the third day. We spent most of the day out of the city enjoying the gorgeous scenery and even had a private demonstration with a farmer and his sheepdogs. We spent a lovely day in the country and Sean P got us back to the cruise port at the time we asked to be dropped off. You won't go wrong touring with Sean.
Joy BrottDallas, TX, United States
How could you find a better tour guide to show you the sites of Dublin than a native named "Sean Patrick"?? Can't get more Irish than that! He was extremely knowledgeable, corresponding with us many times to set just the right itinerary yet flexible enough to change things up a little when necessary. He picked us up in a very nice Mercedes MPV. It had seven bucket seats plus the drivers, very comfortable. No complaints, only kuddos for Sean P.

Fantastic time. We are ready to go again
Mary Jo GeorgeUnited States
Sean Patrick was wonderful! For our first time using tours by locals, it exceeded all our expectations . He was very informative , welcoming, and willing to answer all our questions. We got an early start beating all the busy crowds, and saw the beautiful countryside of Dublin. There is no question, if we return to Ireland, we will request Sean Patrick to be our tour guide again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mary Jo for the very positive comments. I would be delighted to look after you during any future trips. Sean P

Judy BonfilioUnited States
We very much enjoyed listening to Sean on our tour. He was able to share a great deal of just the right things we wanted to know about Dublin. As we had scheduled a second tour of Dublin, with a different guide, he was careful to advise us about different things to include the second day. He also fully answered and seemed to appreciate our questions. A good mix of driving and walking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind comments Judy. So glad you enjoyed your day. Sean P
John MathesUnited States
Sean Patrick is a consumate professional. He possesses vast knowledge about Irish history and the relationship(s) of Irish people past and present to the people of Europe and the United States. We enjoyed our day with Sean immensely and sincerely wished we had more time to spend with him. If we ever return to Dublin or Ireland, we will ask for Sean, and in our future European travels we will always request members of Federation of European Tour Guides.
Sharon FryUnited States
Sean was an amazing guide for our tour. We loved our day with him and would definitely book him again for a longer tour---given the time. he was efficient, more than knowledgeable about everything we did and a complete joy to be with for the day. He was the best we could have hoped for for a one day tour. We will recommend him to others and will use him again when we return to Irleland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for the kind comments. Glad you enjoyed the day. I look forward to welcoming you back at any time. Sean P
Laurie S.Naples, FL, United States
Sean Patrick is THE best guide we have ever had - anywhere, anytime! His insightful perspectives made every place come alive. At each stop he brought the culture of the land and the people to life. We let him choose where to take us and he did not disappoint, adding places and stories he knew we'd like. Wish we could rate him a ten!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Laurie for the wonderful comments. I am delighted that you enjoyed your day so much. I would be thrilled to welcome tou back at any time. Sean P
This was Day 2 of our Dublin tour with Sean Patrick. We wished to tour some of the non tourist pubs of Dublin and indeed we did, beginning with the highest pub in Ireland, followed by the longest, the smallest and, finally, the oldest. Along the way we covered the entire breadth and depth of the Irish history and experience. Sean Patrick felt like an old friend by the time we had reached day's end. A better tour guide would be hard to find!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much John for the very kind comments. It was a really great pleasure to spend time with both of you. I do hope you come again one day!
We wished to see and experience a ground view of Dublin on this Day 1 of our 2 day tour with Sean Patrick. So we strapped on our walking shoes and headed out early on a brisk Dublin morning. We quickly realized that we were in the company of a human Wikipedia of Dublin, and Irish, history and thus the the day long Q&A session began. Hours of delightful time went by as we walked the thoroughfares and back streets of Dublin. Don't delay, book Sean today!
Richard JermanWinter Springs, FL, United States
Sean is without question the best private tour guide we have had the pleasure to tour with. He is very knowledgeable about his Country and was very informative throughout the tour. He is personable and not only remembered everybody's names but also interacted with everybody in the group. He is number one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Richard for the very positive comments. So glad you enjoyed your tour. I will be in touch again! Sean P
Sean was a pleasure, a walking encyclopaedia on Dublin sights and history. We wish we had longer with him, but with two younger children in our group it was slow progress. Thank goodness Sean is a patient man. Thank you, we loved your company and learned alot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Donna for the very positive remarks. It was very much my pleasure to be with you "Irish folks". It was great fun and I thought the kids survived exceptionally well which is a major credit to you all! Sean P
Amy GreerUnited States
Sean is a terrific, thoughtful guide. We had a lovely day with him and he provided lots of great advice for the rest of our stay. We completely enjoyed our time spent with Sean. He is knowledgeable and just a pleasure to spend time around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Amy for the kind remarks. It was a great pleasure to accompany you both around my city. May i wish you both a very happy new year. Sean P

We were a group of 8 walking the streets of Dublin for four hours on a rather cold and windy day. Our guide did his best to keep us warm by keeping the speed and filling us with history and stories from Dublin. We enjoyed it very much and would like to recommned everyone to spend a bit of money and time on a guided tour. It will bring your visit to a new level.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you folks for the very positive remarks!
Mary DelarosaUnited States
Sean Patrick was an amazing hiking and tour guide. He gave us a beautiful hike. He worked with several levels of abilities. He was funny and very informative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary for the positive review. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and the weather helped greatly!
Michael KimbleUnited States
Sean is very knowledgeable, entertaining, and warm. He's the sort of person the Irish Tourist Board might have invented to promote Irish tourism.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well that is one of the best ever comments. Delighted that you enjoyed your tours so much. I look forward very much to welcoming you back!
Michael KimbleUnited States
Sean is knowledgeable, entertaining, and warm. He made our trip special!

Deno BarrogaUnited States
Sean was very kind and nice. He was on time and had a nice comfortable car. We went all over Wicklow and all over Dublin. I got to see some nice places. He also took me to the top of a hill/mountain where I could see a beautiful lake. The scene looked surreal and fairytale like. He also took me to a beautiful lake with tall mountains in the background. We saw some old church ruins and I got a chance to visit St. Patrick's Cathedral. The weather was also very agreeable and that made my pictures even more p
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Deno for the very kind remarks. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your couple of days in Ireland. We would be thrilled to welcome you back at any time. You are a thorough gentleman! Sean P
Sean RyanUnited States
Sean Patrick was great...we had a party of 8 and everyone said it was the highlight of the week...great stories, very informative and stopped for us to enjoy a pint or two!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sean and the group! So glad you enjoyed the tour and i hope the test of your trip was a great success. Sean P
Jeff YuenUnited States
Sean was a perfect guide and host to Glendalough, the Wicklow mountains and Powerscourt Waterfall and had an extensive knowledge of the culture, history and interesting facts of Ireland. We will definitely use him again on a return trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank toy so much for the kind comments Jeff. It was my great pleasure to guide yourself and your lovely wife around County Wicklow. I so look forward to welcoming both of you back to Ireland. Sean P
Lee BraceUnited States
Really perfect tour of Dublin. For our short trip we covered all the highlights and really enjoyed the conversation and well planned event. We would definitely use Sean on the next visit here.
Sheila CoyleUnited States
I give our Dublin walking tour a 5 out of 5 rating. Our guide, Sean Patrick also receives a 5 out of 5. He really made the tour great. Sean's knowledge of the history of Dublin was fantastic. I would recommend his tour to anyone coming to visit. Our tour was September 16. 3 hours was the perfect amount of time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sheila for the kind comments. So so glad that you enjoyed your day! Sean O
Sandra HaegerUnited States
Sean Patrick was everything that we wanted in a tour guide. When we met him, we knew that our day would be a busy one, full of stories, history, geography, walking and laughter. The pace was fast (as we requested) but not frantic, perfect to allow us to cover so much of Dublin. We saw everything we'd been told to see. By the time our day was complete, we felt we had a new cousin. We can't say enough about Sean Patrick. He should be a number one guide in your company. I will certainly tell others about him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sandy! Thank you so much for the high rating. It was absolutely my pleasure to guide you around my native city. Y'all come back now!! Haha Sean Patrick
Arturo SanchezUnited States
Sean was really great. Very professional, informative with attention to details. We had a great time and were able to grasp everything about the city and on national level. Highly recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My goodness Arturo, i am so sorry. One of the tiny failings of this system is that i am not informed when a review comes in. Thank yo so much for your kind remarks and the excellent review. I thoroughly enjoyed your company for the day and i do hope you can make it back for a more comprehensive tour. Glad also to hear that you arrived home safe and sound. I am currently touring the country with two very nice folks from Texas. Weather not too kind to them yet! Kindest regards, Sean Patrick
Very informative and interesting Sean Patrick is a super guide and has very relaxed approach. Special thanks to Sean from all of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much folks for the kind comments and for the super rating!
Bruce SafranUnited States
Great tour Sean is extremely knowledgeable. Some confusion at final destination. No one had our reservation for tea. Very thorough guide. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for kind comments and so glad to have such a friendly group! Hotel choice for afternoon tea a little unusual and, in my opinion, not best organised hotel even though booking made in advance and confirmed on the day.
Elizabeth H.United States
Our tour of Dublin and Newgrange was on our very first day in Ireland and Sean Patrick's knowledge of history and culture provided the ideal basis for our entire vacation. He took us on a very thorough tour, telling fascinating anecdotes all day, and was amiable and easy going with the whole family. It is not an exaggeration to say that this tour gave us the background to enjoy the rest of our trip thoroughly. We loved the day we spent with Sean Patrick and heartily recommend him to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My goodness Elizabeth, I am so grateful to you for such a great recommendation. I really hope you and the family had a wonderful trip and that the weather did not interfere too much! I really do appreciate your comments. You and your lovely family are very welcome back here any time. Kindest regards, Sean P
Claire NovotnyUnited States
Sean Patrick is an amazing person. He is really a delightful person to get to know, as well as the perfect Irish gentleman. His tour is a must do! He took our group of university students, 14 of us in total, on a great tour of Dublin, covering history with a focus on civil rights. It was a wonderful introduction to the city and history of its people. Since our group had just arrived early in the morning before the tour, he was able to keep us awake and interested, which in itself is an accomplishment. :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So nice to hear such complimentary comments. It was my great pleasure to look after you during your group's introductory stay in my native city. Of course it helps when you have such a pleasant group and super advance planning!
Fern BilletUnited States
Sean is a fabulous guide. He showed us the whole city, and we really enjoyed all of his stories. Wold recommend him in a heartbeat!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind comments, it was my great pleasure to look after you in my native city. I am really delighted that you enjoyed the tour! Please do come again.
