About Niall and Best of Ireland Tours

I started Best of Ireland Tours to offer people a unique and fulfilling visitor experience when they come to Ireland for a holiday. I want to show the best of what Ireland has to offer to everyone who books a tour with us. I have extensive experience in creating private tours and I work with the best tour guides to show you the unique hidden gems and famous tourist locations for which Ireland is known worldwide.

I come from the beautiful old town of Ennistymon in North Co Clare near the Cliffs of Moher and the scenic coastline of Clare, just a few miles from the traditional music village of Doolin. Having previously worked in the tour guide business I developed Best of Ireland Tours to offer clients more custom tour options when they visit Ireland. I love meeting visitors from all parts of the world who book tours with us. I enjoy showing clients the best locations and making good times happen. We intend to create memorable experiences that you will remember long after you return home.

Niall Cleary



Niall Cleary of Best of Ireland Tours gave us the best private tour from Dromoland Castle in Shannon, up to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, onto Galway then back to Dromoland Castle. This tour was personal, tailored to what we wanted to see. Naill was so much fun to spend our day with. He was full of history, stories, suggestions, and just the perfect guide. We stopped at a great pub along our route that made the day even more special. He has a great sense as to how much time we needed to spend on one site before traveling on. Niall was also a conscientious and responsible driver being sure we felt safe throughout the entire day of exploring beautiful Ireland. Strongly recommend Best of Ireland Tours for any group looking to have a personal, informative, insight into the beauty of what Ireland has to offer. Niall will make your trip! We had the best time.

Niall was a joy to have as a driver. As Americans we did not feel comfortable driving on opposite side of road, and we did not know directions. Niall took us to all desired locations over 10 days, including some really remote places. He also knew the best places to have lunch and where all the ice cream in Ireland is located :) We went to historic sites, relatives' homes, megalithic sites, and great restaurants. Much better than a tour bus and well worth it. We had an amazing unforgettable trip.

Best tour guide anyone could ask for! Niall is the reason my boyfriend and I got to experience and see parts of Ireland that we didn’t even know existed. We were in Ireland for my friend's wedding and I had booked us two tickets to go see the Cliffs of Moher on our one available day. But like any LA’er I figured there would be easy transportation with the hotel or an uber. I was wrong lol. Luckily the hotel had Niall’s information for private tours and we were connected. I am forever grateful because Niall booked us super last minute and during a busy season for family travel. Not only was he affordable, he went above and beyond to add special stops in on our way to the Cliffs. Which included towns, shops, pubs, historical locations and sights that we would have never found ourselves. Along the way he told us stories of the sights and the rich history of all the locations. Then once we got to the Cliffs he parked, walked us up, provided more history on the Cliffs and became our personal photographer! He felt like a friend you have known for years and his hospitality made you feel like a local. There are so many amazing things to say about Niall, he provides a connection to the heart and spirit of Ireland. If you want an experience that will fill your soul and bring some adventure to your memories, you need to book with Niall :)
