Our tour guide training programmes offer exceptional service and value to institutions, heritage groups, information providers and private companies. We are experienced tour guides and have delivered informative and entertaining tours to visitors from all over the world. We are also highly experienced and motivated educators and trainers.

Róisín Burke (our director of training) has extensive experience teaching tour guiding courses at both NFQ Level 5 and Level 6. She has delivered bespoke tour guide training courses across Ireland.

Our training has been specifically tailored to community groups who have an interest in history and heritage and who want to know how to best communicate the importance of their area. We focus on helping the groups enhance their skills in telling their stories and we also enhance their knowledge of their local history to create an awareness of the importance of the archaeology, history and folklore that surrounds them. Our training programmes are very interactive and we offer opportunities during the course for participants to share stories which increases their confidence and allows us to learn more about the unique heritage of a region.
