-“He that travels much, knows much.”
My name is Pádraic and I was born and raised and still live on the region’s only archipelago of islands in the south west part of Connemara.
My first language is Irish or Gaelic as it is sometimes referred to. The language is spoken on a daily basis and we conduct our business locally and nationally where possible, through the medium of Irish. The language is rich in culture and heritage and I am truly blessed to have it as part of my life and upbringing.
I grew up in Connemara with tourism often helping people who may have taken a wrong turn in their cars well before the days of satellite navigation! I also worked in our local pub and used to love meeting people from all over the world and telling them about the hidden gems in our area. Following school and college, I worked in a few different industries in sales and marketing roles but always yearned for the tourism industry and its focus on good old fashioned Irish hospitality.
I can arrange Day or Multi Day experiences for you or your clients incorporating elements of what you see on this website. However if there is a specific experience you wish for me to create, please do get in touch so as we can explore options together. If you are a Tour Operator or Agent, I work with a number of Destination Management Companies so please get in touch to discuss how we can work together.
“GREAT WAY TO SPEND A VACATION DAY IN IRELAND!”
"We recently took the Connemara & Aran Islands pub tour from Connemara Pub Tours and found it an excellent value and great fun. Our guide Padraic was a local and very knowledgeable about the gaelic culture. We enjoyed being introduced to gaelic football. Inisheer was beautiful and the seafood was fantastic. We highly recommend this tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland."BILL & TRACIE COLUMBUS OHIO
“INCREDIBLY WELL ORGANISED STAG ACTIVITY BY THE TEAM”
"I organised this activity for a stag party in Galway with an ever changing number and other difficult factors. Padraic was our guide, got engaged with our group and also talked us through each pub. He was in regular contact with us throughout the build up to the day and nothing was ever a problem. Thoroughly recommended, even though I'm a pretty hard customer to please!"RAVI P LONDON, UK
“ONE OF THE TOP TRAVEL EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE!”
"I've been lucky enough to travel a lot and do a lot, but I have to say this is one of the events that is at the top of my list. A couple of friends and I joined the Connemara Aran Islands pub crawl along with a stag party and I couldn't have asked for a better day."IRISHEYESKT12
“WONDERFUL STAG DO EXPERIENCE”
"The highlight of the weekend for the 12 of us. A wonderful island in the sunshine with some great pubs and memorable flights there and back. Padraic was the perfect your guide and I can't recommend the Connemara & Aran Isles tour highly enough."MENISCUSIII
