We can take in several venues (time permitting) such as Bushmills Distillery along with the Giants Causeway. Tours can also be tailored to something of specific interest, such as Slemish Mountain (where St Patrick spent time as a slave), a visit to the Hole Stone or any other visitor attraction or place of interest.

Our vehicle is a luxury 8-seat MPV, fully licensed, insured and equipped with wheelchair friendly seatbelts.

Meet Your Tour Guide

Hi I am Jim, your tour guide.
IMG_8131
I regard it as a privilege to present Ireland in all its splendour to his visitors.  I have extensive knowledge of its history, its myths and legends and I’m sure I will be able to surprise and delight you my visitors during any of my tours – I am told I have an infectious enthusiasm.  But don’t just take my word on this, please look at my feedback!

I have an active interest in folk tales and stories of the shee and have many story poems and of course, I try to have a story relevant to each venue.

I have a vast range of experience and knowledge of my country with an active interest in Ireland’s ancient history, castles and standing stones, archaelogy, local wild life and fauna; including fairies and leprechauns.

I try where possible to travel by the back roads and byways, giving you a look and a unique glimpse at the real Ireland!  My tours are a great insight to the history and people of Northern Ireland and something different.

The profile picture – is the My new tour guiding, leprechaun whispering backroads visiting, lesser spotted Ulstering, storytelling Ratty Tat Hat!  Designed for me by local artist Karen Christie.  I will not be hard to spot in this!
