Meet The Team
Alan began his tour guiding career with us in 2016 after a number of years in the haulage industry. Alans’ enthusiasm and passion for the Wild Atlantic Way and Galway in particular is evident to everyone who tours with him. Alan enjoys sailing and fishing with his family on Lough Derg when not on tour. A keen runner, Alan has been known to train along the coastal pathway at the Cliffs of Moher, so keep an eye out for him during our Cliffs of Moher stop. Alan is also a regular visitor to Florida, one of his favourite holiday destinations. During school holidays and in keeping with our family orientated tours, Alans young son often accompanies him on tour and is always good for a song or two on the way home.
Our knowledgeable Kerryman Damien first came to Galway as a student many moons ago. Following an international career in the hospitality industry, he began his tour guiding career in 2012 and joined the Wild Atlantic Way Day Tours family in our first year of operation. Damien is a Failte Ireland qualified National Tour guide and a recognized Galway local expert. His favorite holiday destination is his island in the Kingdom of Kerry. Damien has a story for every turn on the road of both The Burren and Connemara and his favorite stop on our day tours is Kylemore Abbey.
Gerry is the singer in our little band of drivers/guides. A builder by trade, Gerry began his tour guiding career with us a number of years ago. His construction career gives him a unique perspective on the dry stone walls of both The Burren and Connemara. A real outdoors enthusiast, Gerry enjoys hurling, sea swimming, and hill walking on his days off and sometimes on his tour stops. Gerry is at his most content driving tour vehicles along the Wild Atlantic Way and sharing his knowledge and insights with whoever’s there to listen. No matter how many passengers, Gerry’s tour is very much a one-to-one experience.
John is Connemara through and through. Born and bred in Connemara, John’s first language is our native Gaelic or Irish. After touring, John is sports mad and a keen follower of rugby, football, and hurling. John began touring a number of years ago and like the rest of our drivers/guides has a passion for showing our passengers the sites and telling them about life here on the Wild Atlantic Way. A Failte Ireland approved Local Tour guide, John’s favorite tour stop is Inisheer, Aran Islands, his native language skills give him an insight into island life that is second to none.
Thomas started out as a taxi driver in Galway in the late 1990s. During this time he would take visitors to Galway on tours of Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, and The Burren. Thomas noticed that he knew a lot more than he thought and he enjoyed sharing this knowledge with these visitors. Following a number of years in Australia, Thomas returned to Galway and began his touring career with us in 2018. Today, Thomas is one of our Failte Ireland-approved National Tour guides and specializes in private / chauffeur tours both locally and nationally. Included in his favorite tour locations are Slea Head in Kerry, Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland, and the Sky Road in Clifden all with magnificent views.
What Our Guests Had To Say
Great tour! Our driver made the ride not only interesting, but funny as well with the jokes he told along the way. We stopped multiple times during the trip, visiting a castle, along with a pub! I absolutely recommend, especially if you don't have a rental car and want to see the Cliffs!
Great trip to the Cliffs of Moher and many other stops! Small and safe bus. Tony the bus driver told us a lot of interesting facts, he was funny and drobe safely. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone. There was enough time for photos and sightseeing.

We had a really good day out. The scenery was stunning, the weather cooperated, which was a plus. Our driver and tour guide, Damien, was exceptional. He was funny, informative and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Cliffs of moher and would recommend your company.
Chris was an awesome tour guide to the Cliffs and back. He was so funny and shared a lot of interesting stories about the history of farming in Ireland and the country in general. We stopped at a lot of places along the way to stretch our legs and take really lovely pictures. If you're in Galway, I highly recommend booking a tour to the Cliffs or any of the other tours they offer.
