Tour Details

Tailor Made

As one of Ireland’s very few fully approved national tour guides with all the required licenses to drive small private groups around all the sites it will be my pleasure to accompany you on your Irish adventure. You will see much more in your short time with someone who can give you all the information, background and understanding of the rich culture, landscape and history of Ireland while being right there beside you. No long queues in large buses. A real connection with the places you visit and tips for all the best places to eat and stay.

Tours are normally in my own Luxury Six Seat Mercedes Limousine with air-conditioning and complimentary water on board. For larger groups a bigger vehicle can be arranged.

John was the first guide I ever been with and still I can say he's certainly one of the best! Not only an extremely wise mind about the entire history of Ireland, John is for sure a great friend as well! Thank you for the excellent time!

John is an amazing tour guide. His walking tour of Dublin was the 1st tour that my husband and I took when we first arrived in Ireland. He was extremely knowledgable and funny! The rest of our honeymoon we traveled the southern part of Ireland and everywhere we went we said "Thank goodness John told us about this or that..." We will definitely be signing up for more of his tours when we come back to Ireland in the future! Thanks John!!!
