At Deluxe Irish Tours our mission is simple. We want to create the best possible experience for you as our guest to our amazing country. We pride ourselves on going ‘above and beyond’ to make your visit to the Emerald Isle one to remember with memories that will last a lifetime.
My name is Barry and I’m a vibrant travel enthusiast from the smallest county in Ireland.
I grew up on the family potato farm in Co. Louth and worked many years in the food and drink industries before entering into the tourism sector.
I travelled the world over developing a true love for what I do now, meeting new people, sharing new adventures and simply having the best fun along the way.
I’m a major sports fan and have a strong passion for our own national game ‘Gaelic Football’ which I played for many years and have coached in recent years.
My love for Irish History, Culture and Heritage gives you our guest a true insight into the real Ireland.

Best tour guide we have ever had. Barry was very knowledgeable, patient and flexible with us. We were traveling with our daughter and granddaughter. This was their very first trip out of the country and we wanted to enjoy the time with them. Barry made that possible with including all the places we wanted to see and suggesting other place also. We would highly recommend Deluxe Irish Tours to anyone wanting to enjoy the most of Ireland.

Truly Amazing! During the drive from Dublin to Rock of Cashel, my wife and I realized we had found the perfect driver and tour guide. We felt so strongly about Barry and his abilities that we immediately booked a second day of touring with him while standing in the shadow of the Cashel Cathedral. My only regret was that we did not discover Barry and Deluxe Irish Tours sooner in our trip; we spent so much time in Dublin and missed the opportunity to see more of the Irish countryside.
Thank you for sharing your country with us. You and your service were the highlight of our 10-day visit to Ireland.
