What you'll do

See life in an Irish Village (Howth) & Ireland through the eyes of a local, his camera and his Dog. This experience will let you live, feel & breathe the real Ireland as thou you were a native.

During the experience, we will move around the Historic Village of Howth using 360-degree videos and create real magic through insights, stories and Myths & Legends you have come to associate with the emerald isle.

We start our journey through time, hearing tales of Viking and Norman invasions and learning about the history of the 700-year-old castle. Immerse yourself in Irish culture as view the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey (Built in 1042) and visit sites known only to locals (Hidden Ireland).

Ireland is full of great Stories and I will share my favourites, that are sure to have you sitting in disbelief or rolling on the floor laughing.

This is a fully interactive experience, with loads of great views, Culture & Irish Craic (all fully legal lol)

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

Irish humor and storytelling at its finest! Mark (& Missy) brings Irish history to life with great stories, gorgeous visuals and a sense of humor that makes you feel at home. Traveling through Zoom means being able to see the cliffs, ancient architecture and the streets of Howth come to life, all without jet lag. This is a lovely adventure from your couch, with the perfect guide.

We enjoyed hearing Mark’s stories of Howth in particular and Irish lore in general. Mark’s virtual tour is a mix of legend, history, local sites (original videos), and a good bit of humor. It was a great way for our family to connect while we are isolated due to Covid—a fun way for folks in their 30s, 60s and 90s to enjoy an afternoon! My 10 year old laughed a lot too! Thank you, Mark!

This was truly the best Airbnb experience I've participated in so far! It was fun, funny, and engaging. The time flew by as I took in the sights and history of the area. Mark is a great guide!

For my parent's 50th wedding anniversary, my cousin's gifted my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, and us a virtual trip to Ireland together. This was a fun experience for us during these COVID times. Mark is a natural story teller, weaving in history, song and humor along with videos of various spots in Howth. I highly recommend traveling virtually with Mark and would say that it was fun to do as a group!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour - fantastic story telling combined with great local knowledge, some music, and a wonderful sense of Irish humour that left us wanting more. Ireland is now at the top of our travel wish list and Mark sent us tips after the tour of what to see and where to go. A genuinely fun guy whose Irish knowledge and humour made the tour both informative and loads of fun! Thank you Mark and your beautiful dog, Missy!
