I graduated as a master craftsman in woodwork and I followed my dream to work in the United States for many years before returning home and setting up my own private tour business.
With over ten years' experience in the tourism and hospitality industry, I enjoy working with my clients to ensure they experience the full potential of their visit and tour. I have expert knowledge of Ireland's history and culture; sites and scenery that has made my tours unique and very attractive to my clients. My natural ability with people, attention to detail and flawless execution are traits and skills that have all led me to excel in my role.
When people think of travel tours, they probably imagine long lines of tourists following a leader. I believe that the most popular, adventurous and personal experiences offered by exciting small-group tour operators, like mine, are unique and very distinctive because they have that 'personal touch'. That is what makes all things special.
No matter what the place, no matter what the scenery, no matter what the people of or area, a TOUR demands knowledge, a close acquaintance and a great love of the area being visited.
There must always be something authentic and genuine about the experience, something that will echo in the mind and call you back to a unique experience.
There is a sincerity that is demanded at the heart of welcoming people on a private tour no frills, no superficial talk, no phony social or historical facts - clearly what is called for by people is a genuine 'journey' through Ireland or through Kerry or through whatever area or road the visitors wish to travel. A voyage of exclusive quality! And, this is what it should be for the discriminating and perceptive tourist. This is what my private tours offer.
I derive huge enjoyment from the experiences of those who come to Ireland.
My private tours offer a warm welcome to my customers from wherever in the world you come. I will be very happy to do all I can to make your 'tour' an enjoyable and relaxing one. It is also important that you can learn something from your trip and I will do all in our power to ensure that you leave us with a sense of happiness and knowledge and a desire to come again.
I offer a great range of private day tours, including The Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, The Cliffs of Moher, Killarney and the West of Ireland generally. I will be very pleased to discuss any of the below tours with individuals or groups and I pledge my deepest commitment to making your tour an enjoyable and carefree experience.
