Mary W

Killarney, Kerry, Ireland

Hi, my name is Mary. I am a Fáilte Ireland (Irish State Tourism Board) qualified Tour Guide and I have been providing tours for clients of Toursbylocals since 2012 and I have provided over 200 tours to date.

My husband Ray is also a Tour Guide with ToursByLocals and you can view his profile on the Toursbylocals website where he is listed as Ray W.

My former career was in Banking and I have lived in Killarney since 1983. I have developed a close bond and love of the County of Kerry, its fabulous scenery and people.

Killarney is the premier tourist holiday destination in Ireland. It is located in South West Ireland, is the 'jewel' of the tourism sector in the country and is renowned for it's natural beauty. It has been a favourite tourist destination since the 17th century.

As a Tour Guide I want visitors who come to Killarney to leave after their vacation with an appreciation of the true essence of County Kerry and Ireland. There are hidden attractions in this county that people never get to see that are of extraordinary splendour and interest, ranging from the 'Tetrapod' Trackway Fossil Footprints on Valentia Island which date back 385 million years to the the unique Bronze & Iron Age Ring Forts, to name just a few.

My personal interests and pastimes include walking, cycling, reading, travel, music, exercise and general outdoor activities.

I look forward to taking you on a tour and exploring Ireland along it's hidden pathways and trails.

A Recent Review of this guide

Mary was delightful to travel with for the day. We had no firmly planned itinerary and we talked about what my husband and I had in mind and Mary built on that. She was very knowledgeable of the area and we talked endlessly about the present day Ireland to give us a better understanding of the lifestyle. Mary had a comfortable car and drove very safely. All in all it was a great day.
