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.

We are the Galaxy Band and we had Paul for a full day driving us around to different venues for a video shoot. He just couldn't do enough for us. He looked after us so well made sure we had everything we needed he was just fantastic. The day just went so quick and while on route to different locations he would fill us on the history of the area. He brought us to kilronan castle which was amazing to shoot It was a pleasure to have Paul and his knowledge and expertise. Thanks Paul.

Had an amazing private day tour with Paul through The Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and Bunratty Castle plus several stops along the way. He picked us up at our hotel in Galway, but he does trips from other areas. In addition to the advertised attractions we had close up photo ops with Connemara Ponies and llamas. The whole day was amazing. Paul was so enthusiastic, entertaining and knowledgeable! His enthusiasm was contagious. He also had access to a parking lot that got us a lot closer to the Cliffs of Moher. Would definitely do another day trip with Paul.

Note for travelers visiting the cliffs, the path can be very muddy after rain. Wear good hiking boots!

Enjoyed our driver, Richard O’Brien, giving us so much local information along with in-depth history of Ireland as we traveled along. He was so knowledgeable and had us laughing the whole way! The Cliffs were a majestic site! Would highly recommend this trip!

A friend and I just returned from a 10-day trip around Ireland with Paul. Traveling with Paul is like finding a long-last Irish friend and going on an adventure together.

He is very knowledgeable and provides history about the places you visit as well as stories only a local can tell. His restaurant and pub recommendations are spot on. He's very flexible--we adjusted our agenda to suit the weather and our moods. Paul knows short cuts and will drive you to the top of the Cliffs of Mother allowing you to skip the lengthy walk from the car park.

I can't recommend Paul enough. We laughed often and were sorry to say "good bye" to our new friend.

Paul Smith was a driver/guide for my husband, myself and my husband’s 84 year old mother for an 8 day tour of Ireland. We covered a lot of miles and throughout the entire time he was professional, courteous, friendly and timely! (Always early).

He was the best. We peppered him with questions and he was great about answering and also sharing of his experiences of growing up in Ireland.

He was open to changes and did a great job of collaborating with us as we discussed the day providing timing information and other things we wouldn’t be aware of.

He kept his Mercedes’ van impeccably clean throughout the week. He provided WiFi and charting cables etx. He had waters, umbrellas, and Covid related supplies.

He was a great driver, fantastic guide and most of all a great travel companion.

He knew the best spots for photos and bathrooms too!

All his recommendations for restaurants or pubs, or shopping areas were always spot on.

Two thumbs up for Paul!

Great personality!!! Our family of six traveled with Paul for three days. We asked questions constantly and Paul knew all the answers. He was so energetic. He is passionate about Ireland. He had tremendous recommendations; in fact, he helped us a month before we arrived to Ireland in planning the three day itinerary. He told us the best places to go and how to schedule everything. He was super responsive to email. The seven-seater Mercedes van was clean, safe, and comfortable. Paul was very attentive to all of our needs. Everything about this three day trip to Ireland was absolutely tremendous! We could not more highly recommend a driving company - Paul was superb!!!

Thanks a million for the great review it was an absolute pleasure taking your family around Ireland and the Craic we had on that journey with Maureen ( chief organizer of the Ireland leg of the tour was planned with military precision) Randy and all the kids,We all had a great laugh with even an odd bit of Blarney thrown in,I know you all enjoyed the Doolin to Cliffs of Moher hike and the Torc waterfall to Killarney walk,ye are one very fit family,And lots of firsts for me as well,With a full crew on board it’s not always easy to coral everybody and keep all happy but Maureen managed it magnificently,I hope some day you will come back and visit some more of Ireland with me,Until then Thanks again,Paul💚🇺🇸🇮🇪

We had a blast! We didn't want the everyday tourist stuff. We wanted gardens, history, wild Atlantic Ireland, faeries, leprechauns, old pubs, wonderful Irish whiskey, bogs, sheep, mountains, cliffs, waterfalls, Vikings, music, local art, a bit of shopping, chowders, stews, salmon, mussels, oysters, lamb and potatoes. We wanted the real Ireland. Paul Smith and his Setanta Tours tours made that possible. He dynamically and daily modified our experiences based on our interests, the weather the area we were in AND his extensive knowledge of all things Irish! Paul was a great (no fantastic) guide! We found him through Love Irish Tours but Paul made the trip the huge success it was. From B&B's, marvelous scenery, and flowers (there really are roses of Tralee) to rural, out-of-the-way roads that exposed spectacular wildflower hedges and the wonderful wilderness of Ireland. We'll be back to visit the Northern Republic counties and Northern Ireland when and if we can find a time Paul is available. If you want a professional guide of Ireland, Paul and Setanta are the real deal!

We used Setanta Chauffeur service and I must say it was a great experience. Paul is very knowledgeable on all aspects of Ireland, it's history, attractions and many places off the beaten track. All lunch and dinner recommendations were top class, the Mercedes was spotless cleaned every day and we had a great time. Thanks Paul
