We’ve put together a collection of podcasts, documentaries and videos that will immerse you in all things Ireland – including a podcast by John Byrne, one of our local guides in Ireland, who provides a fascinating look at St. Patrick’s facts and lore.
With over 20 years of experience in tourism & hospitality, a Bachelor of Business in Event Management & Public Relations and a Qualified National Tour Guide, John combines his love of Irish culture, heritage and hospitality with sharing his Irish expertise with the world. John runs Experience Galway and is Tauck’s local guide in Galway City, on the West Coast of Ireland, sharing what he calls “The Greatest Little City in the World ” as part of Tauck’s The Walkin’, Talkin’ & Tastin’ Tour of Galway City. During this experience John takes Tauck guests on an exploration of Irish culture & heritage using the medium of Irish food & drink within vibrant Galway City: “We might officially be a ‘city,’ but with a population of just over 80,000, Galway feels more like a big town really. With a true local feeling and strong traditional Irish culture there’s always the element of Shenanigans bubbling away under the surface for those that look hard enough.” When not Walking, Talking & Tasting with Tauck, John is the Operations Manager for the Explore Galway Group, a collective of Galway Tourism Business dedicated to showcasing and sharing Galway City and the West of Ireland.
