    Mini Bio

    I am truly at home outdoors in nature. Ireland just has so much to offer from mountain biking through a forest, road cycling the quiet roads or canoeing on the lake near my home. I am really passionate about helping people discover hidden Ireland and those wonderful places just off the beaten track.

    Favourite Place to Play

    My former career was in investment banking before wanderlust led to me to travel the world leaving the office life behind.

    What Fellow Travellers Say About John

    Reg who took us fishing was a real character and full of local knowledge. John who took us for the hike and bike ride was full of interesting facts making the days fun. Both were challenging for some of the group but a the right level for the group as a whole. The canoeing with Graham and Adrianne was great way to start off our experience. Thank you

    John and Ruari were very personable and all members of the tour group including myself felt that they did an excellent job. I have been on twelve European cycle tours in the last thirteen years and the tour guides on this tour stand head and shoulders above others that I have worked with. Importantly, they were very focused on the safety of the cyclists on the tour.

    Beyond perfect. Our guides John and Ruoari made the trip. On my two previous bike trips (different company) the guides did not cycle with us. This was so much better. I liked the fact that the group was together. One of them was always at a crossroads so we could not get lost. They shared the experience. They were also helpful setting up the Garmens or dealing with any bike questions. We also had lots of laughs. I am interested in language and history and they were well able to answer questions. Many thanks to our superb two guides.

    By a very nice coincidence, I met our guides John Neary and Ruairi Leddy on another trip on the Wild Atlantic Way in 2019. They were just as much fun and just as helpful then. Their hilarious banter enlivened many a meal. But most importantly, they were deeply interested in making sure we all had a safe and exciting time biking the stunning routes of Donegal, which were challenging with their elevations and twists and turns.

    What could be better?
