The Tour Guide

Celeste first visited Donegal in 2008, when she came over from South Africa on a retreat to the Ards Friary, just outside the village of Creeslough “place of Bridie Gallagher”.   As she got out of the car, she knew instantly that she had come home and that this was the place she wanted to spend the rest of her life! And so 2010 saw the start of her adventure of packing up her life in Africa, and moving to this beautiful island that is Ireland!  But she wanted to do more than just come and live here – she wanted to share this place with everyone and show them what Co. Donegal has to offer.


The Tour Driver

Conor originally comes from Athlone, in the heart of Ireland, but recently relocated to the quaint town of Creeslough, Co. Donegal. As both of his parents are local to Creeslough, he spent most of his spare time here when growing up. He has always loved this County’s friendly people and beautiful landscape, so for him, it was an easy decision to make the move to the “coolest place”.  In 2018 he started his career with Boyles Buses, a local bus company in Creeslough, Co Donegal.  The company provides a range of transport services, but it is in tours that he has a particular interest. He wanted to find a way to be able to share all this County has to offer with visitors. It was then that he met Celeste, a local tour guide, and the idea for Explore Donegal was born.
