Dia duit (Hello) My name is Deirdre.
I am a native Irish speaker who enjoys what she does best, to showcase Ireland through Irish eyes. I am a confident, caring Cork girl who specialises in private tours along the southwest of Ireland.
I started my working life as a multi-activity Outdoor Instructor which allowed me to live and work all along the Wild Atlantic Way route. I have co-ordinated and facilitated groups of all ages and abilities in the most dramatic landscapes. This 9-year adventure allowed me to progress into a tour guide and driver role for the past 7 years. It has given me a great insight into the industry working for a variety of tour operators on multi day tours throughout the island of Ireland.
I am very happy to be finally offering my own tour guide /driver service after completion of the tour guide course offered by Failte Ireland tourist board. I have seen the potential for quality Food Tours. I focused myself on developing the finest foodtour in the country and finished with a distinction, a solid business plan and the motivation to set the wheels in motion. Next step was to invest in a vichele and convience the chefs and food producers in Dingle to entertain my idea…One year on and we are happy to be offering a unique experience for you to enjoy.
I offer a wide variety of tours and have the expertise to tailor a tour to your needs. I have been noted for making the Irish landscape come alive through story, song and historical visits. I have developed a wonderful relationship with the locals who ensure my clients receive a warm welcome. It also allows me to bring you off the beaten track and really be a part of the Irish landscape.
I am a passionate artist and photographer who can lead you to the most mystical locations on our ancient beauty Ireland. I also specialise in Food Tours having created a Walking Food tour of Dingle town and at present developing a route to access food producers along the Cork and Kerry peninsulas.
Overall, I love what I do, so allow me to show you how to really enjoy your visit to Ireland. I will devote my time to creating and delivering a journey you will always remember with fondness.
