Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland

Failte - Welcome! Hello, I'm Michael and I look forward to showing you the best of Ireland!

As an experienced Private Tour Guide, I love arranging tours to meet the needs of my guests. On my private tours I will treat you like a friend, and will show you as much as I can in the time we have together. I am a fully qualified guide, and hold the Tourism Authority National Guide Badge. You can be assured of a top quality tour if you choose to travel with me!

I live and work in the beautiful County of Kerry, and studied nearby at the University in Cork City. I live close to the beautiful town of Killarney. I qualified with a BA(hons) at the National University of Ireland - University College Cork. By studying History and Geography locally, I have lots of extra local knowledge to share with guests on my tours. I completed my masters (MSc) in Dublin, so have also spent time in our capital city.

I am married with 2 children, and have 20 years experience in tourism throughout Ireland.
I have guided for many world famous tour companies, from student groups to VIP tours. For the last 5 years I have been a tour guide in my local area, and love guiding private tours and ensuring everyone has a great time.

The most important thing for me is that everyone who joins my tour has a great time. The great thing about a private tour, is that you can decide how much information and commentary you wish me to share with you, but I am equally happy for us to relax and listen to some great Irish music! I am happy to adapt the tour to reflect your interests and requirements!

As we travel together on the tour, I am always happy to make as many stops as you wish, for photos or to just to get out and stretch the legs! I find it is the stops that were not planned that are often the most enjoyable! My local knowledge means I can often recommend hidden gems along the route, making your tour even more special!

Tell me what you would like to see, and I will plan a tour to meet your requirements! I am a flexible and fun guide, and would love to meet you during you vacation in Ireland!

Slainte - Good health to you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Michael did a great job. He is very personable, patient, and gave us good recommendations. He was truly a 12 on a scale of 10. I run a service business and I recognize the quality of service. I wouldn't think twice. You will enjoy the day with Michael.
