From the moment I reached out to him before our trip to the day we spent together in the Boyne Valley, Michael Fox was a great pleasure to work with. He was responsive, knowledgable, and absolutely made the most of our day together. We visited Newgrange (at his urging, we were in the first group at the Visitor's Center!), Trim... More

Michael Fox took us on two tours, one up to New Grange and the other south to the Wicklow mountains. Inside Four Knocks I drummed with other people which was a great experience. Walking the Hills of Tara and also seeing Brigid's Castle was magical, too. The best for me was visiting my namesake, Sheela Na Gig, the main reason... More

Our tour with Michael was everything I hoped it would be and more! He was very communicative from my first email. I shared with him our special interests ahead of time, he made a few suggestions and created a tour of the Boyne Valley unique for us. He took us to a few places of interest and secret special spots... More

For our first time on the Emerald Isle we were incredibly fortunate to be personally guided by Michael Fox. Can't imagine a better guide, a better excursion, a better Irish experience. His knowledge of Ireland and his passion for the land of his birth are unsurpassed. But his desire to tailor our time to what was important to us meant... More

Knowing that in Ireland they drive on the "other side of the road" from the USA, I chose to seek out a private guide familiar with the Boyne Valley rather than rent a car and put everyone at risk. I was fortunate to stumble across the very informative website of Michael Fox during my research for "mystical places " -... More
