I was educated here and worked here all that time. I have a detailed knowledge of the history, geography and culture of the city and its environment.
I am a fully badged Irish Tourist Board (Failte Ireland) approved Tour Guide, a National Tourist Guide.
I have years of experience as a hillwalking leader in and around the city and the Dublin and Wicklow mountains (including the Wicklow Way).
I have been guiding in various forms in Dublin and its environs for many years simply because I love it.
I have completed every state course available in tour guiding but having worked in every nook and cranny of this city for a lifetime I feel that my passion for it will speak volumes for my ability to portray it to you in private tours.
A Recent Review of this guide
Sean was a great tour guide/driver. He took us to all of the places we wanted to see and then to other sites of interest. He was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable about the area. This was just 1 of the private tours we booked through Tours By Locals and we highly recommend them.
October 2012 I successfully completed a Certificate Course in Tour Guiding with Failte Ireland, The Irish Tourist Board.
In July 2013 I successfully completed a National Tourist Guide Badge Course with Failte Ireland.
I have a taxi licence (SPSV) and a D1 minibus licence to carry up to 16 people.
