Private tour guide Barry

Barry R.

Ardee, Co. Louth, Ireland

Cead Mile Failte My name is Barry and I'm a vibrant 40 year old travel enthusiast from the smallest county in Ireland.

I'm a fully approved Failte Ireland National Tour Guide and hold a full SPSV licence. I've been doing private tours of Ireland in my fresh luxury 5 Series BMW vehicle for over 12 months now (Up to 3 persons per tour).
I've a real passion for my country and the feedback I get from my guests makes doing my job all the more satisfying. I really like to go 'above and beyond' to make the experience extra special for all my guests.

I'm a country boy at heart and grew up on the family potato farm outside Ardee, in County Louth.
I travelled the world all over in my 20's and developed a true love for what I now do back then. Meeting new people and simply having the best fun.
I worked many years in the Food and Drink industries in various sales management roles before eventually been brave enough to set up my own adventure within the tourism sector.
I'm a major sports fan and in particular for our own national game 'Gaelic Football' which I played for many years and now a coach at senior level.

I'm extremely passionate about Irish History, Heritage and Culture and my tours really give you an insight into the real Emerald Isle.

A Recent Review of this guide

We only had 1 day in Dublin & we booked toursbylocals and used Barry for our guide. He is the best tour guide I have had. He customized our day in Dublin to everything we asked for & then exceeded all expectations. He personalized the day with his own life's experiences which provided a very personal connection. He made the most of our day and left us with a great desire to return to Dublin & call on Barry. We highly recommend Barry for any tour you have in mind for Dublin & throughout Ireland.
