About Us

Cairín O’Connor – Founder

Cairín O’Connor is a native Dubliner and a Graduate of Trinity College. She has spent 35 years promoting all things Irish including artisan foods, crafts, Irish artists, heritage, literature, language, agriculture, gardens and sport including horses and golf. Cairín set up Ireland Less Travelled to ensure that visitors from the US and further afield visit and experience where the locals go and enjoy.

‘I work with couples, families and small groups from the planning stage to arrival in Ireland and can be your private Tour Guide for some or all of your trip. My time living in the US, my network of international clients and connections across Ireland ensure your trip will be as good as it gets.’

We cannot thank you enough for your hospitality, expertise and dedication to helping to create an extended family trip to remember! This was top notch and we so appreciate all of your efforts, above and beyond.

Cairín took us on a day tour of Dublin and the outskirts. We saw and learnt things we’d never have otherwise. On top of that, she’s easy to hang around. We felt like old friends by the end of the day!

We could not be more pleased with how everything went on our first trip to Ireland. Working with Tom and Cairín for about 7 months gave us the right amount of scheduled activities and open family time. I recommend them to everyone.
