James Dickson

I regard it as a privilege to present Ireland in all its splendour to visitors. I have extensive knowledge of its history, myths and legends, I am sure I will surprise and delight you during any of my tours – I am told I have an infectious enthusiasm. But don’t just take my word, please look at my feedback!

I have an active interest in folk tales and stories of the shee and have many story poems and of course I try to have a story relevant to each venue.  I have a vast range of experience and knowledge of my country with an active interest in Ireland’s ancient history, castles and standing stones, archaeology, local wild life and fauna, including fairies and leprechauns. I try where possible to travel by the back roads and byways giving you a look and a unique glimpse at the real Ireland! My tours are a great insight into the history and people of Northern Ireland.

It’s all about the hat, my signature, newly designed for my by Karen Christie – I am not hard to spot, this leprechaun whispering, back roads visiting , lesser spotted ulstering, storytelling Ratty Tat Hat.

Provider of back road tours for small parties of 2-6 people, with many venues not on any tourist map. Full day tour throughout the Glens to the Causeway where large tourist coaches cannot go. I am also a step-on guide for coaches (shore excursions) for larger tour groups. I can pick up at any port/airport/hotel. Tours tailored to your specifications and interests.

I am currently working on obtaining accreditation as a story teller in the glens of Antrim
