Let me be your guide, and I can share these with you.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Cashel, Co Tipperary, you all know the song. . . it's a long waaay. . . . to Tipperary. . .
After my first trip Stateside during my student years, I was hooked on travelling. I just love seeing new places, meeting people, sharing stories, experiencing different food and cultures and seeing amazing sites in different countries.
I spent a year in Canada in 2010 and this is where I discovered tourism up in the wilds of the Yukon! I worked for Holland America for one season and returned home with a new career in mind. I found a great tour company to join as a driver guide delivering multi day active tours of Ireland. I loved the industry immediately and all the Irish people I encountered around the country from hotel receptionists to activity suppliers.
I have worked in Irish tourism for 8 years and I still learn something new about Ireland on every tour!!! That's why I love it, every tour is different and introduces me to new people with whom I can share my beautiful country with.
In 2012, I launched my own craft beer, whiskey and food tours. These range in duration from 1 - 6 days.
In 2018, I purchased my own vehicle, a 16 seater Mercedes Sprinter. I now run a combination of private tours along with my bespoke itineraries to breweries and distilleries coupled with culture and heritage sites.
I live in Dublin close to the airport and the port. I offer a Dublin city tour aswell as a wide variety of other tours and have the expertise to tailor a tour to your needs whether it's a day trip or a multi day tour. I am a National Accredited tour guide by Fáilte Ireland. I deliver the tour in a professional but relaxed way, it's your Irish experience so please do tell me your likes so I can tailor it to your wishes be that fast paced or more leisurely, make an ad hoc stop for a coffee or a pint in a traditional pub as you wish.
I love Irish history and culture and am more than happy to regale you with tales from our colourful past and bring you up to date with modern Ireland also.
I love to travel myself. I know that one of the the best parts of travelling is meeting the locals. If you travel with me you will have an authentic Irish experience and receive a warm welcome everywhere you go.
I'd love to share my passion of Ireland with you on a tour.
Hope you see you in 2019.
