The only way to travel!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Paul was essential to making our 8 day journey around Ireland the trip of our dreams! The perfect traveling companion, he is an excellent driver, knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much about Ireland that we would not have been exposed to if we had decided to self drive. Not to mention how exhausted we would be without him there ready to go at each destination, and patiently waiting while we explored the sites. It was a whirlwind of a trip but wonderful thanks to Paul! Check out the map he provided tracking each of our destinations, and that’s him at the Cliffs of Moher! Thanks Paul! Till we meet again! - Pat, John & Marissa ❤️

We felt like we were bumping into an old friend when Paul greeted us in our hotel lobby
Jan 2020
We began our day bright and early, the second day of this new year. We felt like we were heading off with an old friend as Paul greeted us with his wonderful Irish warmth. We were heading off to the Mountains of Moher and then via small villages we were on to Galway. Quite a distance to travel in one day but Paul never rushed us and stopped at our bidding. It was a wonderful day that we are still reflecting on back home in Canada. Paul was so gracious even stopping so we could watch a horse being trained in a tiny village farm. Such a lovely memory. He was so energetic and chatted easily with us about so many interesting topics answering our many questions. Leaving the city promptly at 8:30 and not back again until 8:00 or so that evening we marveled at his stamina for such a long drive, and then having to drive a distance home after leaving us off at our hotel in downtown Dublin. Even with spots of rain our day was filled with stories, beautiful scenery and wonderful sights. Really we asked for the two desitinations but took in some villages as well off the beaten track. Places where large buses and their crowds would not likely venture. We will be meeting up again with Paul as soon as we can get back again to the lush, friendly Emeral Isle. One request for that high stepping Mercedes Van ,extremely comfortable to travel in, but a little step up would sure make it easier for these old bones to bend to get in. Thank you Paul for a wonderful day and thank you Beth at Irish Welcome Tours for finding him for us. A wonderful last day to our trip!

The Absolute Best!
Jan 2020
We were lucky enough to find Setanta and Paul Smith through trip advisor. This was simply the best day we had and all due to our incredible driver ,Paul Smith. Even before we arrived in Ireland from the US, he kept in touch to make sure all was set. Everything was perfect from the time he picked our family up in Longford...headed to Bunratty Castle, off to the Cliffs of Moher, a lovely stop in Doolin then on to Galway. He was so knowledgable, funny and professional. He made our trip truly memorable! We are a family of 3 adults and we enjoyed it all. His transportation was beautiful and he even had wifi. Would recommend and book Paul again for all our future trips!!! Thank you again.

Paul was the Best Part of the Trip
Oct 2019
We traveled with another couple. Paul picked us up at the Dublin airport and took good care of us all 7 days. He was funny, polite, knowledgeable, his Mercedes was clean and he was a safe driver and always on time.
He went out of his way to take me to a castle in County Clair that my relatives owned in 1480 a truly unexpected experience. All four of us were very pleased with the entire experience. Rick & Julia McMahon

What a tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
We booked our holiday through Love Irish Tours and met Paul Smith as our driver for 13 days. How lucky we were. Paul shared his knowledge of Ireland with us, happily accommodated our wish list for sightseeing, was helpful with our luggage when we had over 30 stairs to climb to our B&B and was unfailingly cheerful ans helpful. He is a total professional and we recommend him highly.

Best Ireland Experience with Setanta Chauffeur Tours. August 2019
Aug 2019
I stumbled upon Setanta Tours while searching for a tour operator who would be close to my cousins in Longford. Ireland. As it turns out my cousin had Paul, (Setanta Tours) over for tea one day to meet him prior to our arrival in Ireland. She emailed me and said this is the guy you want so we booked our tour of Ireland with him and as it turned out it was the most memorable experience that we could have ever asked for.
We flew into Dublin from Philly and stayed 2 nights in the Temple bar area at the Morgan Hotel. On Monday, 8/19/19 Paul met us at our hotel to begin our exploration of Ireland. Meeting him for the first time was a genuine pleasure. He was well dressed in a uniform wearing a shirt and tie. I could tell right away just by his friendliness and mannerisms that we had made the right choice in choosing Setanta Tours. His Mercedes Van was spotless, very comfortable, and even had on board WiFi. Our Itinerary was taking us north to Portrush N. Ireland. Being in Ireland for the first time with my husband, cousin and his wife we were all very comfortable with Paul who was knowledgable with the history of Ireland. Our conversations with him while driving never went silent as he really made us feel at home. While en route to Portrush, Paul suggested a stop in Belfast. I remember all the problems there years back with the terrible violence, but we trusted Paul with the stop. I have to tell you it turned out to be the best experience that we had in Ireland. Paul took us to the "Peace Wall" where we signed the wall in solidarity for peace and took many photos. It was truly a great experience that Paul suggested, and again we came to the conclusion that we had made the right decision in hiring Paul, Setanta Tours as our driver. We stayed in Portrush one night and left the next morning for Longford. While visiting my family in Longford we decided at night to go to the Tally Ho Bar, where all the locals go. Being from the town Paul knew most of the people there and introduced us to a lot of his friends who made us all feel so welcomed. After Longford we went to Galway for a few nights and then one back to Dublin for one night before our return to the states.
When we arrived back in Dublin for our last night we were sad to leave our new friend, Paul who we had come to know so comfortably for the last 5 days. We all could not thank him enough for his great suggestions and all that he had done for us to make our trip to Ireland the best summer vacation that we ever had. We will definitely be returning to Ireland someday and look forward to using Setanta Tours, Paul as our official Chauffeur.

July 2019 Trip to Ireland
Jul 2019 • Couples
Paul Smith of Setanta Chauffeur Tours was a pleasure to have as our tour guide and driver! Unsure of what to expect from a private versus group tour my husband and I decided to go with a private tour and to our surprise we totally WON with Paul! Being a native of Ireland he knew all the cool off the beaten paths to take us. When asked the best memory of my trip I will always remember driving up to Dursey Island and having a fabulous fish and chips lunch on the side of the mountains overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. His knowledge of the rich history of Ireland was amazing and you could hear the passion in his voice for the love of his country. Each morning he was punctual and professional as he picked us up from our hotel and took us on our day of travels and adventure. The last day going back to Dublin he asked what we would like to see and instead of telling him, I asked him to show us what he loves. This was the most wonderful day as we made our way to Dublin's National Park and explored the flower gardens and had lunch outside in the cafe. Then we went into the heart of Dublin where he showed us many historical landmarks and told of the history. I recommend Paul to anyone wanting a real taste of Ireland with all it's beauty and history! Many thanks Paul! We will be back and we will be asking for you!!

A Relaxed, Upbeat, Edifying Holiday
Jun 2019 • Family
The most memorable part of a vacation is often the people you meet, and Paul will always be among the first we think of when we look back on our fantastic Irish tour beginning and ending at Dublin.
Without ever being intrusive he blended seamlessly into our family (adult daughters not teens), enhancing the dynamic with his infectious jovial spirit. Paul has all the qualities of a complete tour guide, adding historical, cultural and ‘travel-tip’ dimensions at the crucial moments. He was patient and astute to our flexible needs and itinerary. Paul was able to do all of the foregoing while providing a safe and professional driving experience, a newly-added necessity for a most relaxing and edifying holiday!
