We really enjoyed our tour of County Meath with Derek. His knowledge of history, the local places we saw, and current Irish life was amazing. His knowledge of New Grange made that stop great. His van is very comfortable and he really knows how to navigate the Irish roads. Above all his humor, personality, and engagement with our group of 6 made the tour go way beyond the normal tour experience. We highly recommend Derek for any tour you are considering.
