The Galway Tour Company Team Includes:

Ray Murray: Ray, a Galway native, and co-owner of GTC has been leading tour groups of Ireland's Western region for almost 20 years as a driver-guide and is happiest on the narrow roads of Connemara regaling his tours with chilling stories of killer sheep.

Des Murray: Father to Ray & Daddy to the company, Des is the leading force behind the success of our flagship tour to the 'Cliffs of Moher & The Burren' and is known across Ireland as 'The King of the Burren'.

Declan Somers: A blow-in from Co. Carlow & an avid lake monster hunter and Japanese speaker Declan is co-owner of the company and can be most often at the top of a mountain or manning the office or at the top of a mountain still manning the office!

Michael O'Malley: A native of Co. Mayo, Michael O'Malley is the best dressed driver-guide in the company & is most comfortable in the Hills of Connemara - you can take the bog from man!

Eamon Brady: Manchester born & Connemara bred Eamon is the company's Cool Hand Luke and when all around are losing their heads Eamon is only scratching his! Eamon can most often be spotted on the Cliffs of Moher tour singing in Irish to an attentive audience of sheep.

Conor Fitzpatrick: A native of the Aran Islands & fluent Irish speaker Conor is the youngest of our crew & a qualified National Tour Guide. No bus too big, no job too far. A hulk of a man but a real softie at heart- so soft he's cuddly but you can't call him that because you wouldn't like him to be angry would you?

Michael Donlon: A dyed in the wool Galway Native (no sheep jokes!), Michael is equally at home doing day tours or acting the goat (a real goat, mind you!) on our now infamous Night Tour. A member of Galway's St. Patricks Brass Band he is also at home playing his instrument- he's there right now.
