Paul Howley
Paul grew up in Glencar, County Sligo, Ireland. From a young age, he was enamored by nature and spent more time camping in the mountains than in a bed! He studied real-estate finance and marketing and worked in New York before realizing his suit and tie could never replace his backpack. He took a job leading people through the Guatemalan Highlands to raise funds for a local school. Now back in Ireland, Paul looks forward to sharing his knowledge and passion of Ireland with visitors.
