Private tour guide John


Dublin, Ireland

Dia Dhuit, hello and welcome to Ireland's Ancient East!

I'm Johnboy and can't wait to guide you around a selection of the best to offer on Ireland's Ancient East Coast.

I come from a typical large Irish family who migrated from Belfast in the 1970's to Dublin when I was the tender age of 6 and it is here where my heart and soul truly belong. My family owned, ran and lived above a famous early house pub on Dublin's quays for 10 years.

Having spent most of my 30's travelling and living overseas both in mainland Europe and south-east Asia I understand the benefit and wealth of knowledge only a local guide can provide.

I provide fun tours of Dublin by foot and/or car and driving tours of a selection of the best sites along Ireland's ancient east covering counties Dublin, Wicklow, Louth and Meath. I drive an E Class Mercedes saloon car with air con. All my tours can be altered and tailored to meet your specific requests thus ensuring your time here on Ireland's Ancient East is fun, enriching and maximised to its full potential.

Families and kids are most welcome, in fact, much to the chagrin of my siblings, I'm the favorite uncle, probably because I'm still a kid at heart!

Why not drop me a line through the message button and let's get planning your visit to Dublin, Wicklow or Ireland's Ancient East.

Slan leat,
