Introduction:

Hello and welcome to my life. I live on a working mixed farm in County Armagh Northern, Ireland and enjoy guiding around the capital CITY OF BELFAST with its amazing industrial and political history however my heart lies in the rural life of NORTHERN IRELAND. I am an active farmer with a keen interest in sheep farming, home cooking and crafts.

Many visitors enjoy not only the beauty of the landscape of my homeland but also my commentary on farming today in the area as we travel from Belfast along the ANTRIM COAST to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of GIANT'S CAUSEWAY.
With a passion for exploring "off the beaten track" either on foot or with small coaches the visitors the experience of seeing rural villages and having a chat with the locals.

As a guide with several years of experience I find that the visitor to Northern Ireland is interested in our politics of the past and present and also keen to find out about our economic situation today. With changing situations in Northern Ireland it is essential to keep abreast of current affairs to share with the visitor.

BESPOKE ITINERARIES can be provided on request to include visits to farms, factories etc of specific interest. I regularly tour all of Ireland and have a wide knowledge of the landscape of the entire island.

I like to make my tours fun with a good mix of history, humour and folklore - all adding to the overall visitor experience to Northern Ireland.
Do give me a call I will be only too glad to discuss any suggestions you may have.
