I’ve lived in Dublin for 60 years
I speak English and some French
I am Tour guide
My name is Conor Hegarty, and I am an experienced, fully qualified Irish tourist guide and a member of the Approved Tourist Guides of Ireland (ATGI). I love meeting new people to show them around my city where I have lived and worked all of my life. My walks are light-hearted and introduce people to the Irish sense of humor while taking in some Irish history. I particularly like to tell people about the nicknames we have for our various statues and monuments around the city. As well as walking tours of the city, I also love to bring tourists to Howth close to where I live. Howth is a lovely fishing village about 10 miles from the city centre, a short train or bus ride. Howth is steeped in history going back centuries with tales of Vikings and Anglo Norman invaders and our feisty pirate queen, Grace O’Malley. We get to see Howth Castle and walk/hike through the woods for great views of the city and the islands off the coast. Come and join me for a fun filled walk in the city or a walk/hike in Howth. You won’t be disappointed.
