I am from Limerick, Ireland and lived in Madrid for 7 years working as a tour guide. I love history and travel, I also worked as a video presenter and visited some of Europe's most beautiful cities, Lisbon, Barcelona, , London, Zurich, Berlin. I'm great at seeking out fun and alternative things to do wherever I go. I have a passion for unique experiences and also getting a flavour of life as a local.
Having lived and worked as a tour guie in Madrid for 7 years I have had a ball showing people around. It is such a lively, sociable city with so much to see and do. Its full of amazing bars with mouthwatering tapas, wine and conversation. Its so easy to get swept away in the frenzy of meeting new people suddenly its past the wee hours and you have no intention of going home. The city is full of beautiful streets and architecture, it also has fantastic museums. Theres always something going on its sometimes hard to keep up but then you look around and see how relaxed the locals are, so you order another caña and relax.
Limerick is my native city and I love its authentic charm. Its full of incredible restaurants and great bars with fantastic live music, poetry and even cabaret nights! Its also home to a lovely outdoor food market where you can find everything from Calamari to gourmet ham sandwiches. Angelas Ashes was written here and it is full of history. Ancient monuments silently sit next to new buildings and wait to be discovered, like hidden gems. There are also lots of beautiful walks in and near the city.
