Years of Experience: 26 years

A traveler once asked me if I'd actually given birth to Ireland. I told him I hadn't - as far as I was aware - but I do feel very passionate about my country, its people, its stories, and its magic. I absolutely love introducing people to Ireland's many wonders, which is why I love what I do so much!
