Irish Private Tours
Private tours of Ireland with Michael Fox, providing a personalised service in a Skoda Superb
Sedan. I love history and visiting heritage and cultural sites, especially Stone
Age Sites, Early Christian Monasteries and Castles.
I have been running a website on the Newgrange World Heritage Site for 20 years
and conducting Private Guided Tours of the
and Wicklow for 10 years.
You can see Trip Advisor reviews of my Private Tours at Boyne Valley Tours and
Day Tours Dublin.
In recent years I have extended my range to the whole island of Ireland, taking guests along the Wild Atlantic Way from Donegal to Kerry. Other favourite places include the medieval city of Kilkenny and to North Antrim Coast where the Giants Causeway is the highlight.
Testimonial - 7 Day Tour
I would highly recommend Michael as a guide. He showed us places most tourists never see.
His insights and humor made each day a pleasure. We were never rushed, but didn't seem
to miss a thing. Michael is full of historical information. This is the way to see Ireland!
His car was very comfortable and it was great
having someone else drive.

Testimonial - 6 Day Tour
Michael Fox is unique and special. We booked a custom 6-day tour of Neolithic sites across Ireland. It’s a bit daunting committing to spend 6 days with someone sight unseen. But Michael is an engaging conversationalist, conversant across a wide variety of topics—and at the same time, willing to let there be quiet when that is what’s appropriate.
Planning the trip was easy and thoughtful. I give him an outline of what I was thinking and in a couple of emails we zeroed in on what turned out to be an exciting adventure of a lifetime. When I asked for some recommendations about reading material to prepare for the tour, he shipped me a handful of books from his own library.
Michael is a great driver. That’s easy to overlook, but tiny roads out in the countryside are fraught with danger for the uninitiated American (driving on the wrong side). Dozens of times my wife and I said, “I’m sure glad you’re driving.”
Best of all, Michael understands the stones. Not just knowledge, although there’s plenty of that. But also a spiritual awareness of just how sacred these places are. He was always sensitive to give us plenty of space and quiet to experience the settings and the monuments, although we spent a lot of time discussing and debating what we were seeing.
