Derek Spillane

Bio: I live in Galway and have been running guided tours of the city since 2013. I graduated with a BA (Hons.) Degree in Heritage Studies and I have a keen interest in Galway’s history,archaeology,folklore and folkways. I have a passion for sharing with visitors Galway’s rich medieval past. Additionally, I have a Diploma in Education and Training and I can cater for educational tours. My hobbies include rambling, oil painting, traditional Irish music and cinema. I offer a two hour walking tour of Galway City. I can also facilitate by arrangement, day tours of the Burren Geo Park in Co. Clare and Connemara, where you can immerse yourself in the area and see these places from the perspective of a local. I promise it will be fun, informative and memorable.
