Kevin hails from Co Mayo in the west of Ireland, however, lived in the US for 6 years, when he studied at NYU. He’s fluent in Irish / Gaelic and loves showing guests the beautiful scenery around Galway, Mayo and Donegal – with Harvey’s Point in Donegal being his top recommendation for peace, tranquility, great food and scenery.
Ask Kevin about his hobbies and he will wax lyrical about horse racing, whiskey and good wines. His biggest passion, however, is golf. He is our golf expert – having played on over 250 of Ireland’s golf courses, he’s sure to be able to recommend a course that will suit your fancy. In fact, the wide variety of golf courses available in Ireland is Kevin’s favourite thing about the Emerald Isle. He’s a member of one of the must-play golf courses in Ireland – the Carne/ Belmullet Golf Club in Co Mayo and has played with some of the golfing greats such as Christy O’Connor, Steve Ballesteros and Raymond Floyd. His other golfing tip? Check out Druids Glen in Co Wicklow.
Kevin’s a fan of podcasts and recommends anyone considering a trip to Ireland to check out some Irish podcasts such as the Irish History Podcast and MOTHERFOCLÓIR – a great way to get an idea of what’s ahead of you! He also recommends relaxing and taking your time, and not attempting to cover too much ground on your trip – a journey around Ireland should be savoured and enjoyed, like a fine whiskey!
