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

"Wow! I had such a fabulous and inspired day with Alan! He's a lovely Irish gentleman who knows everything about Irish history and wonderful places to explore! My Irish adventure was perfect! We will definitely be using Alan on our next trip:). I would highly recommend Alan! Thanks for a wonderful day!"

“The weather and our wishes changed the plan, so we didn't do the described tour at all. Our driver guide Alan was able to put together just what fit us in devising a customized itinerary. When you don't want to follow the crowd or get on another bus, do this! You're worth it.”

“Tony was a very pleasant and informative driver/guide with an extensive knowledge of the area and history and also picked up on things we would find particularly interesting which made for an absolutely brilliant day out. Could not fault them in any way and would thoroughly recommend”
