Touristy's Story

We started out as Taxi Tours Ireland a few years back. A small group of Taxi men with a huge passion for Ireland and a love for telling visitors all the old folklore tales & Irish stories.

Since then we've grown into Touristy. We are still a small passionate team full of pride for our little country Ireland. However we've gained lots more experience since our Taxi Tours Ireland days. We now have a large network of similar minded tour guides all around Ireland and can offer tours all around the country.

No matter how small or large the group. We can organise the perfect private tour that suits you. Just get in touch with us and let us start planning your next tour of Ireland.

We are so proud to have received our 2017 certificate of excellence award from Tripadvisor. This is a testament to the dedication our guides show everyday while working with Touristy.

Happy Customers

"Alan Bradley From Touristy Ireland was my tourist guide and taxi driver. Made getting around so much easier to use taxi lanes and parking places. I saw all the highlights and visited so many places in an 8 hour span. Really felt like I got to know and experience Dublin. Alan is extremely knowledgeable about Ireland’s history and the people that formed Ireland. I highly recommend him to be your friendly and knowledgeable Irish Tour Guide!!"

"We had Alan for our day trip to Dublin and Powerscourt Gardens tour. Alan is not just a safe driver but also an excellent guide. He was kind and patient with our twin boys and informative to all of us. We enjoyed his company and because of his passion in sharing his knowledge with us, enjoyed the stay in Ireland. Will definitively call on him next time we are in Ireland."

"We hired a mini bus for a group of 12 and had a great evening out to Dún Laoghaire and Dalkey with our tour guide Liam. Liam was an excellent tour guide and was very knowledgeable and passionate and provided the group with great information about the local history. Bradley organised the event for us and was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and was always happy to help and let us tailor the trip to exactly what we wanted. It was a great success and I would highly recommend Touristy and will definitely be in touch again!"

"I’m not sure how many great things I can say about Touristy!!!! Our driver, Alan, took great care of us and showed us many sites. When he arrived at our hotel to begin the day, we had a short consultation so he could gauge what “must do” items we had. He then designed the day around what we discussed and made sure he took us to as many things as possible. Our elderly mother was treated with extreme care as she is not as mobile as my sister and I am. He made sure she was included and took us to walker friendly locations while still catering to us and offering to stay and keep mother company if we wanted to do something she wouldn’t be able to get around for. I can only recommend Alan and Touristy with the highest is a great private tour and I suggest anyone traveling to Dublin to give it a try!!!"
