About me

A native of Northern Ireland, with a love of the coast, walking, food and my dog, I decided to combine them all to create Northern Ireland’s first Dog Friendly Walking Food Tour.

After achieving a Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and living in the USA for a few years, I subsequently spent the majority of my career in the hospitality sector in Sales, Marketing and Events roles, undertaking several post-graduate qualifications as I went along.  I love the outdoors, and am rarely found watching the TV!   I have been fortunate to walk part of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, averaging 25km a day – yes I do like a dander!!  This was one of the most memorable and enjoyable journeys I have travelled and turned out be a life changing trip.  I enjoy finding out about the places I walk with my dog, and it was while out on my usual dander around Portrush that I had the ‘lightbulb’ moment of creating a ‘Dog Friendly Tour’.  The notion of creating a Food tour had hit me about a year earlier while in Fermanagh, so I put my brain into overdrive, and put all my ideas down on paper… and so the Dog Friendly Tour story began, following lots of research and meeting people.

My friends and family would consider me to be a fun and engaging person and a great host, as I’m always organising!! You will be made more than welcome on any of the Dog Friendly Tours.  If you have any questions before booking a place, do give me a call for a chat.

The freedom and enjoyment I get from a fresh air walk on the beach is just wonderful, not only does a walk help to reduce blood pressure and reduce mental stress it burns calories too.  Having a dog also makes walking much more sociable,  and the presence of a dog is also known to reduce stress, so the walking tours will be enjoyable, sociable and hopefully you might learn a few things too!  Whether you come on your own, with a friend or partner, you will be made very welcome.  My dog Georgie is 4 years old and a Lhasa Apso.  She is the boss of the house, and keeps me right about when she wants out, when she wants me to play, and is also my shadow everywhere I go!  I mean everywhere!

I love Northern Ireland and I am so excited to share the Dog Friendly venues we have with fellow dog walkers on tour, with more destinations already in the pipeline, so watch this space.
