Mary O.

Killarney, Kerry, Ireland

Hello and welcome. I'm Mary and am a native of Killarney.

My first employment was as a tour guide at Muckross House and Gardens near Killarney and from there I went on to become a National guide and tour director showing visitors around Ireland for almost 20 years. I have my national guide badge since 1992 and am a member of ATGI (approved tourist guides of Ireland).
I lived in Italy (Sorrento & Rome) and also in Paris for 12 years where I initially worked for American Airlines and later as a Paris city guide. I am passionate about Ireland and love sharing my knowledge and passion with visitors to my region. My hobbies are walking the dogs, golf and bridge. I am a member of Killarney golf club and also a member of a few local bridge clubs. I love nature.
My tours are personalised and will be planned to suit your tempo and interests. I know the best way to arrange the day and am highly flexible. I will tell you as much or as little as you want to hear & not just about history and monuments but also about all aspects of daily life ie, . where to find the best shops, pubs, restaurants, what's going on, evening shows, current affairs and even some gossip! My goal is to make your vacation a memorable one.

Credentials

National Guide Badge in 1992
Qualified Driver/Guide licensed by The National Transport Authority of Ireland to drive Small Public Service Vehicles.
Higher diploma in French language and culture - Sorbonne University,

Restrictions

Most of our National Monuments have their own on site guides so I wouldn't be permitted to guide in these places.
