Carmel O.

Kilkee, Clare, Ireland

Hi, I'm Carmel, and I am a qualified SPSV driver-guide.

I am passionate about local, sustainable and responsible tourism, that is growing rapidly nationally across Ireland, and globally.
I am originally from Ireland, born and raised here. I am very enthusiastic about tourism and travel in Ireland and very much enjoy being a part of our global travel culture.
Relying on the skills from my 2003 Bachelor of Science in Business Degree, I decided to take on a driver guide role, and this is currently my 6th year as a driver guide.

I believe in contributing to sustainable tourism development while spending time and having fun with international travellers and sharing the best that Ireland has to offer. I have good people, listening and communication skills, and I am dedicated to ensuring a really excellent travel experience for all who visit the Emerald Isle. I enjoy off-the-beaten-track moments, as well as covering the major attractions of Ireland.

I am professional and friendly, and my goal is to ensure you have a really excellent time in Ireland so that you leave with many treasured memories of your tour, and with a good understanding of the history and culture of this amazing place.

A Recent Review of this guide

Carmel is a lovely person. She is witty, patient and a joy to be with. She is very knowledgeable and welcomes questions and always has this right answer along with a fun story to go along with it. She was easy to communicate with and met all our requests and needs. She took our thoughts and weaved them with her vast nature of the terrain and history into two beautiful days. In spite of occasionally difficult weather we walked the cliffs and towns I encourage you to travel with Carmel.
