Anthony Cremin
Anthony Cremin Tour Guide
My name is Anthony Cremin, there is nothing more exciting for me than the history of Ireland. It's something I have a passion for my whole life. With both my parents coming from the north of Ireland, conversation in my household would have always been centred around stories of rebellion. Born and bred in Dublin, I've always had a keen interest in Irish culture. Be it hurling with my childhood and current team Setanta or my love for Irish music. Showing people around our beautiful country is a dream come true.

Richard Martin
Richard Martin Tour Guide
Im Richard, im 45 yrs old and originally from Canada. I became obsessed with Ireland at the age of 11 when my Irish born grandfather died, and soon began reading Irish & British history. After many years of saving what money i could from cutting lawns and doing odd jobs a teenager does, my life dream came true at 18 when i came to Northern Ireland for the first time and a life long love affair was born. I returned to Ireland many times over the years, and moved here with my Irish passport in 1996. I have been a Tour Guide now nearly 14 years and am "living the dream" as they say. How fortunate i am to show people the country i love and explain its history! My hobbies include travel, music and of course history. Its my pleasure to meet people from all over the world, and present the best that Ireland has to offer to them!
