Denis escorted us around the Slea Head and showed us things and told us history that we would never have found on our own. He is a consummate story teller and can make ordinary things very interesting. In other words he is a genuine Irishman. If you need an introduction to this part of West Kerry, Denis is your man.

We booked a 4 hour private tour with Dennis and it was amazing. His knowledge of the area and it's history was excellent, and at each spot we got to stop and look at all the wonderful buildings and scenery. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in not only learning the fascinating history of the area but also immersing... More

My friend and I arranged a private tour with Denis Ryan after our other tour fell through. We were so glad it did! Denis was the perfect person to share Dingle with us! He asked what we wanted to see and we discussed our options before we left. Once we had our itinerary he drove us all around the peninsula... More

We were extremely pleased with the tour with Denis. He was so knowledgeable about the area and was very friendly. We covered so many different areas and learned so much about each one. At each area we would get out and walk around as he explained the history of that place. He would point out different things as we went... More

My wife and I had a private tour with Dennis Ryan. We also found that he has a great reputation amongst the locals before we took the tour. He tailors the tour to fit what interests you most and will walk you through the history of the area as well as covering the archeology. He will even point out great... More

Denis is absolute great!!! Me and My Wife arranged a 4 hour private tour with Denis Ryan. He was extremely accommodating to fit the tour around our schedule. The weather was awful on the day of our tour, and we thought, we would not be able to tour the Dingle peninsula. However, Denis made sure that rain or no rain,... More

4 of us booked the tour with Dennis, and we all agreed his tour was overrated. Maybe he was having a bad day, or we just didn't click. Hard to say. He seemed irritable with other drivers, and often complained. After paying 50 euros each, then told us we had to pay 2 euro apiece to enter a fort that... More

One might think that after giving tours of the peninsula for years, Denis might be rather bored giving yet another tour to folks like us; instead, he was lively, funny, and insightful, and the two and a half hours went down like a pint - all too fast! If you're lucky he'll also tell you about some of the music... More

This was our second visit to Dingle and second time taking Denis's tour. This time we were lucky enough to bring our adult kids, ages 28 and 30 along. We booked this not to be missed tour way before our travels making sure our date was available. Denis is quite versed on Dingle knowledge and history. He explains it all... More

We booked the 5-day tour of south-west Ireland, covering the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. This was an excellent tour with a charming guide. Patrick Foley made the history of Ireland come alive with stories and songs. We toured with 15 in a small bus from Dublin to Galway and back to Dublin again. We stayed in excellent... More
