Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not to brag, but I have been on tours all over the world with many various experiences and guides. Sean Patrick is the best tour guide I have ever had. We wanted a tour of Ireland rich in culture and history. And Sean has a rich background himself, full of generations of family living in Ireland. He created a trip using our guidelines and wish lists. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to set us up with authentic experiences. He knew the backroads and took us to remote and beautiful places of interest.
We had great hotels and food, the car was clean and comfortable, and all of his recommendations for our time on our own were great. He's also funny and personable. I'm sure he adjusts his tone to each tour group; and the four of us are old friends who like to joke and tease, and as soon he realized we would welcome his own conversation, the five of us did a lot of laughing.

My friends and I had an absolutely fantastic experience with Sean. From meeting us at the airport, providing us with fresh bottled water every day, and taking us on a journey of a lifetime to dropping us off nine days later at the airport.
Sean organized our trip from beginning until end, taking us to many sites we probably would not have seen on our own or with a large tour bus company. He was so flexible every single day and especially when one of our colleagues/friends had an emergency. He was right there, helping us out along the way.
Sean clearly loves his country and it was clearly demonstrated in how he spoke about the people, the countryside, the food and also the historical information. I would highly recommend Sean.

Sean is a wonderful tour guide and a charming and funny host. He made us all feel at home and part if his wonderful Irish family.
His knowledge of this beautiful country was vast and detailed. We learned things that we never knew before and saw and experienced the most amazing magic of this green land.
The views the history the music the food and most of all the wonderful people were all introduced to us by Sean and his wonderful tour. I wish we would have booked the tour for 3 weeks there's just so much to see and enjoy.
One final note:
I'm glad Sean was driving!

A perfect experience- Sean is a true renaissance man. Knowledgeable in Irish history, horticulture, sports (especially golf, hiking and football) and all things Ireland. He takes care of every detail and made every part of our trip meaningful. Knew where to go for the best photo angle and pre purchased ever ticket to avoid the lines. Great restaurants waiting for us at every stop with a reserved sign on the table as he is a cherished guest in the establishments we visited.

After touring south and southwest Ireland with Sean in August 2019, we returned to visit the west and north of Ireland, as well as Scotland. As was the case last time, we had an outstanding experience. Sean is organized, efficient, and a heck of a lot of fun! On both trips, we left the the agenda and details up to Sean. I felt that as an experienced guide, he would know the ideal spots to visit and the tourist traps to avoid. He certainly does! We visited familiar locations and those we had never heard of. All were quite interesting, teaching us much about the history, culture and people of each area. Did I mention that the scenery is spectacular?! His hotel and restaurant recommendations are excellent. He will make suggestions to suit a range of budgets. I strongly recommend that you reach out to Sean to plan a trip as soon as possible as his schedule books up quickly!!
Thanks Sean for another wonderful 2 weeks!

We booked a 10-day trip with Sean Patrick Tours. Sean took care of all the details! With Sean at the helm, we were able to truly relax and enjoy all aspects of our trip! As we toured Ireland Sean’s knowledge of Irish history and commentary gave welcomed context to what we were seeing and visiting. He is very friendly and professional! By the end of the trip, it felt as though we had made a new friend, we truly enjoyed his company throughout our visit. We would 100% recommend him to all our family and friends.

If you want to see Ireland without any stress- be sure to hire Sean Patrick. We had a 2 week trip that was amazing.
I learned very quickly to trust anything that Sean said. A Historian himself, he had so much to teach us and it was
incredible. If Sean said, "this place is not worth your time"...I knew it was true and that he had so much more planned.
He did make all our hotel arrangements and they were perfect! This was not easy as NotreDame was in town for the game!
Wonderful Memorable trip!

It's hard to put into words how amazing a tour with Sean is. He is an excellent tour guide with an extensive knowledge of Ireland's history. He goes above and beyond to ensure that you have a wonderful holiday. Everything is taken care of before you arrive, hotels booked, entrance tickets purchased and anything you want to add on is arranged for you. This is a true vacation where all you have to worry about is what you're going to eat that day. He will even help you with that by suggesting great restaurants. I hated to see this vacation end and I had tears when he dropped us off. Sean, we miss you and we'll be back because we can't imagine not spending more time with you. Do not hesitate to book your tour with Sean!

Sean is the ideal tour guide for his part of Ireland. He is an excellent driver, uses a top of the line vehicle, has innumerable friends and contacts along the way and helps you to see some of the country’s most beautiful and interesting places. My wife, Suzie, and I recommend him without reservation. Bill Riley

Our tour guide, his knowledge of history, attention to detail! It’s 6:00 am here, in just getting up. I haven’t tried my legs out yet. Laying here full of gratitude for your efforts to educate, entertain, share your beautiful country and all of its history over the last 10 days. So much more to learn! Thank you Sean Patrick! Until we meet again.
