I can show you hidden gems like the viewpoint of Nine-Stones half-way up Mount Leinster, walking tours in the towns and villages of Co. Carlow, Laois, Kilkenny and more in the South-East of Ireland
"MAY YOU ALWAYS COME MORE THAN YOU GO."
LANGUAGES SPOKEN: ENGLISH, GERMAN (FLUENT)
I have intimate knowledge of the Eastern part of Irelands Ancient East and more. Did you know that the kings of Leinster are buried in St. Mullins? St. Mullins was once as important as Glendalough and Clonmacnoise
Since 2013 I am guiding individuals and small groups all around Ireland. I also organised Linedancing experiences, St. Patricks day breaks and many more individual tours and tours for like minded people. For the last 4 years I was working for inbound tour operators, so I handled the single traveller as well as large groups of up to 90 people. I started operating from Co. Carlow, then slowly expanded throughout the SouthEast, to Irelands Ancient East and eventually the entire island including Northern Ireland
For the last two years I acquired quite a taste and knowledge about Irish Whiskey and am a member of the Celtic Whiskey Club and a supporting member of the Kilkenny Whiskey Guild. What I’m passionate about is the uniqueness of Irish Whiskey and its history. Everything started with an Irish Whiskey Appreciation Curse with Mitchell and Sons in 2016 and since then I have given presentations and Whiskey Tastings with my own customers and on tours as well. At the moment I am working on a special Irish Whiskey Tour.
I love all sorts of dancing. I did ball room dancing back in Germany and won local competitions. For the last 14 years I am line dancing – just for fun - and recently I started a course of Sean Nos Dancing. I also like to bring my clients to local clubs like a set dancing group where they are instantly involved with the locals. They not only watch the dancing, they do it! My motto is: I don’t sell tours, I provide experiences. Get close up and personal with Ireland and the Irish
At the moment I am preparing a portfolio for the ETB Kerry for getting the Qualification of a Failte Ireland recognised National Tour guide. I am a certified local guide for Co. Laois and am taking part in an advanced training course containing Geneaology, built heritage, insurance and laws and general guiding knowledge. I hold the manager’s CPC for both haulage and passenger transport. I am bilingual, German and English; I did a few Irish Language Courses with Glor Cheatharlach and received my Faine from Michael O’Muircheartaigh
