Walking, Coach and Cruise Tours
Life here in my home County of Armagh is largely formed around green fields and small villages mostly situated under the shadow of the ancient Cathedral City of Armagh.
Take a walk with me through these unique plantation villages and discover their origins and enjoy their landscape today. Walk at a safe distance from all with the use of my simple Audio System. Meeting up and chatting with the locals will provide a unique look into life today in these quiet unassuming places. Rural lifestyles which are so far removed from that of our capital City of Belfast.
To kick start my NEW Village Walking Tours I have chosen the following villages –
LOUGHGALL – A small Conservation Village built around it’s Manor House
RICHHILL – A Castle on the hill!
MARKETHILL – Built for Lord Gosford
KEADY - The home of Irish Linen
HAMILTONSBAWN - Small but interesting!
Time to shake off the blues and enjoy lots of humour and history on a walk through the narrow streets of Armagh City once again with local Guide Barbara.
Keeping your distance and a lot more, is easy with the use of our simple Audio Ear System. Our simple audio system allows all to dander the hills and clearly follow the live commentary by Guide Barbara up to 20 metres apart!
Walk takes on a very easy pace highlighting the Saints. Scoundrels and Society who once walked these narrow streets around today’s historical buildings throughout the ancient City of Armagh.

Leaving the City centre we step back in time as we walk through the cobbled alleyways of Cathedral Quarters with their 19th century whiskey warehouses and red brick industrial buildings - now vibrant pubs and restaurants. All sitting in the shadow of Saint Anne's Anglican Cathedral .
Passing along by Belfast's famous Albert Clock to stroke the "big fish" and catch the panoramic views from the footbridge over the River Lagan.
Great views and stories of the birthplace of Titanic, Waterfront, Custom's House and the Statue of Harmony.
An opportunity to step into the busy St George's Market before moving on to take in the beauty of the 19th Century Gothic architecture of Saint Malachy's Catholic Church.
Our "easy going" walks can take you into the heart of your chosen place and when combined with a coach tour create a wider insight into the area.
City Walking Tours are very popular as they allow closer access to historical buildings while rural pathways bring you closer to the wildlife.
Stepping off to enjoy new landscapes is all part of your cruise experience therefore making the best of your short stop is essential.
As your local guide we can travel around by car, bus or train.
