Paul is the Transport Manager for Ireland Chauffeur Travel as well as a Senior Guide. Paul has driven Heads of States, Kings and Queens, so you can rest assured of the Royal Treatment from Paul! He is passionate about the history and culture of Ireland and his knowledge is unparalleled in the country.
Paul has a wide knowledge of its myths and histories. His favourite myth is of Fionn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway, a fascinating story that you must ask him about. The story encapsulates the Irish tradition of humour and self effacement splendidly and Paul particularly loves the fact that it is the quick thinking of Fionn’s wife Una that actually saves the day!
Paul’s favourite place in Ireland is the Dingle Peninsula – the rugged coastline, amazing views and the wonderful people all combine to make this area unique and magical to visit. Paul reckons the best fish and chips in Ireland are to be found at Vaughan’s of Liscannor, County Clare.
His advice for any visitors planning a trip to Ireland? Bring an open mind and prepare for a surprise around every corner! He would recommend a visit to the Blasket Experience on the Dingle Peninsula – not only is it famous for its appearance in Star Wars, but it gives a great insight into the life of islanders and the beauty of the Irish language.
