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 was our guide, he was fantastic! He had wifi in his vehicle, the vehicle was very clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable about all things Ireland. We especially enjoyed his thorough tour of Glendalough, it was very very interesting! He told all kinds of Irish stories passed down from his ancestors. He went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable day!"

“Alan was so welcoming, energetic and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to ensure that each of us had an amazing time. He was funny and was more than happy to tailor the trip to our needs!!! Highly highly highly recommend him! No better way to see Ireland.”

“My guide Alan was incredible. I asked for something very difficult. I was in Dublin for two days on a business trip and I basically had one hour to squeeze in a brief tour of the city so I can could actually feel that I was in Ireland. In a little over an hour Alan provided a whirlwind tour packed with so much history, commentary and good company. He even bought me a cappuccino and drove me to the airport. I would book with Taxi Tours Ireland again without hesitation.”
