Barry O'Rourke

About your guide, Barry O’Rourke

My name is Barry O’Rourke and in 2011 I jumped on the opportunity of early retirement as a Senior Police Officer (Inspector rank) to pursue my lifelong passion for the history, geography and lore of this ancient and beautiful island.

What better way to indulge my passion than to share it…

I am a tour guide based in Killarney, Co. Kerry, in south west Ireland, but I conduct private guided tours throughout the island of Ireland. As an experienced guide throughout Ireland, I aim to give the visitor an appreciation of the deep history, culture, people and unique beauty of this country.

I can bring the visitor to any of Ireland’s 32 counties, and tailor each tour to the preference and needs of each guest.

I have a passion for Irish history, from the ice age to the present day, and I aim to give each visitor an experience of the deep and sometimes troubled history of this beautiful jewel of the Atlantic.
