About Me


To discover the real heart of nations. And why and how they beat.


I'm a tour guide based in Dublin. That's also, to a great extent, who I am:
I love meeting new people, inspiring them, having great times, showing them my country and really giving them a proper feel of it. I'm quite a funny guy, accommodating and thorough. An amateur actor, I can be quite theatrical.
I'd love to share who I am and also inspire you to come visit Ireland. But more than anything, I want to know who you are, and to really get a true sense of your city/country.


Learn like you'll live forever.
Life is about living not having, so share the best times you can make and don't think about price. A cynic, as another Irishman, Oscar Wilde, said, is someone who knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to couchsurfing. I've heard nothing but good things. I flirted with the idea, until finally deciding to get into it properly after I realised that, on a recent trip to the city, I knew no one in Zurich.


None, only hearing many's a good word


Art - in all its forms (painting, sculpture, architecture, skateboarding [a combination of the three, i suppose], photography etc.)

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: I tend not to have the patience for most novels, so I still to short stories (like Joyce and Poe), and Irish folk tales. But more often than not, I'll be reading a history book or something deep like that to better understand the hear and now.

Music: rock, hard rock, heavy metal, classical, French music: Aznavour; Piaf; Brel,Frank Sinatra, Engelbert Humperdinck,David Bowie, Porcupine Tree, Pearl Jam, and Steel Panther! But that's just a taster of the diversity of my music tastes.

And my 3 favourite bands are:
Diamond Head, Primordial, Black Sabbath!

Movies: Dumb and Dumber (and the soundtrack!), Lords of Dogtown, The Warriors

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Thank you for asking this question. A great thing to ask yourself every single day.

'Don't mistake activity for achievement'

One amazing thing I have done in my life is to not have lost who I am, despite the pressures of society, despite the odds, despite the oppression. To remain true to myself.
