“I spent most of my working life serving in and managing bars, telling folk-tales to customers and hiring in traditional Irish musicians to give life to the place. I loved nothing more than sharing my knowledge of our great history and wonderful Country. I always felt that there was something missing however. It was as if I was preaching to the choir and wasting my enthusiasm on those who already felt the same as I did. I shared my feelings with my wife to which she replied “so why not share your enthusiasm with those who don’t know” – it was then that I decided a career in tourism was for me.”

Tours of Ireland

 

“I started off working various jobs as a Tour Guide in places such as the Burren Visitor Centre, Co.Clare and I spent some time working in Bunratty Castle. I still felt that I was not exceeding my full potential until I applied for a job with Deborah at Irish Essence Tours. It was the next natural step for me. Now I get to express my love for the emerald isle to those who are new to it and I also get the joy of  watching the love for my country grow in others as well.”

“People always ask what I do for fun but my answer Tours of Irelandis always the same – for me, work is fun! Of course, I have a life outside of work though. I love nothing more than to sit back and relax with a fishing rod at one of our many beautiful Rivers. I also like to take in a Gaelic game at the weekend. Be it football or hurling, the passion that the Irish fans portray at these games is contagious and any scraps on the field are soon forgotten over pints of Guinness in the pub afterwards!

What Our Customers Say
This truly was a trip of a lifetime for us. I find myself looking at it and sighing, wishing we could be back there! We couldn’t have asked for a better trip and we’re already planning our return for 2015. The level of personal attention you devoted to every little detail will never be forgotten – we raised many pints of Guinness to Irish Essence Tours and to you Deborah on our trip!

Working with you, Deborah, to create our journey was a pleasure. From the start, you were knowledgeable and returned inquiries in a timely manner. Your insight of Ireland travel also directed us extremely well with our sightseeing choices. It was important to me to be able to speak with a live person. Otherwise, I would not have had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person, an outstanding representative of your company.

In every respect, we loved the tour you planned for us. We loved where it took us; we loved what we saw, the beauty, the tranquillity, and the history of your magical country. We loved the accommodations, the B&Bs, which you thoughtfully arranged for us. We enjoyed the restaurants and pubs, many of which you recommended. Lastly, we loved the people we met. In all our travels, we have never visited a country full of warmer, more polite, welcoming people. And, you Deborah, represent Ireland, and its' people, at its' finest.
