I have worked in the tourist industry for the last 15 years offering:

  • Walking and bus guiding tours of Dublin
  • Dublin social history /Off the beaten track Meeting Locals / controversial issues
  • Step on guide 32 counties of Ireland
  • Irish Political History 1916 /1923
  • The Troubles in the north of Ireland

I aim to put a smile on each face at the end of each tour and I am enthusiastic about meeting people from all parts of the globe and sharing our proud history and heritage.

I have always had the gift of not working with a script so that my tours can evolve over time with no restraints and bringing my own personality into my tours.

I strive to bring a great mix of social, political and architectural history, putting an emphasis on humour and bringing history alive.
