Donal Kelly - Blue Badge Level 4 Guide
Walking/Cycle/Coach Guide

Hello there,

                  My name is Donal Kelly, I was born in Antrim Town about 18 miles outside Belfast but have lived in Belfast since 1990.

I hold the N.Ireland Blue Badge (Level 4) qualification, the highest accredited tour guiding qualification available in N.Ireland, and sit on the Executive of Tour Guides N. Ireland the local guiding association.

 I also have a professional qualification in Community Relations, and I am a qualified Cycle Instructor.

My backround includes 17 years in Aerospace, and working as an Outdoors Instructor, I was also involved with the 'Peace People' in Belfast, a local peace organisation in the early 1990's.

In 2012 I started working as part of the Visitor Experience Team at Titanic Belfast, and started delivering my own guided experiences in 2016, (Belfast Mic Tours).

I have a love and passion for Ireland North and South and Irish History and culture.

My area's of expertise include Titanic, Belfast's Maritime and Industrial Heritage, and interpretation of the N. Ireland 'Troubles' (Political Mural's, Peace Walls, history and legacy of the Troubles).

I was also a 'Game of Thrones' extra in Seasons 1&2 playing mostly Lannisters, and fought for the Lannisters in the Battle of Blackwater Bay (Season 2).

Most of the fiming of this iconic TV show took place in various locations throughout N. Ireland, the most dramatic being the stunning Causeway Coast. (I am happy show you some of these locations and teach you the sword routine I was taught for the show).   

So I am available for half or a full day, I can offer custom walking/cycle tours or I can join you in a hire car or I can arrange a luxury minibus for your group. 

I am also happy to pre-book Tea/Coffee stops, Lunch stops, pre-book entrance slots for visitor experiences and organise any other activities.

Cheers

Donal

    Absolutely brilliant historical/modern tour of Antrim. From Metalica to Alexander Irvings best selling book the tour caters for so many. He did and showed us a great account of the Battle of Antrim which happened in 1798. I would absolutely highly recommend Donals Tour.

    Donal Kelly was informed and very knowledgeable. He made allowances for one of our party who was unable to walk as quickly as the rest of us and the two hours seemed very short! As a native of Belfast I found his tour particularly interesting and I have no hesitation in recommending him whether you are a local or a tourist! The Mic system works very well and makes it very easy for the whole party to keep up with the commentary. Mary

    Of all the tours I have been on, Donal’s MicnHike tour is by far my favourite. Donal offers a comprehensive and enlightening tour, that stretches out over the quarters in the city. As someone who has worked in the tourism industry for a number of years, Donal’s tour surprised and delighted me as I learned more about my home city than I could have possibly imagined. Suitable not only for tourists but locals as well, MicnHike teaches you of the deep, rich cultural history that Belfast has to offer – seeing places that you’ve known your whole life through a different lens. I cannot recommend Donal’s tour enough to those wanting the full Belfast experience.

    I took Donal's Mike 'n' Hike tour with my parents last summer. We had a wonderful time walking through downtown Belfast with his guidance. Not only is Donal knowledgeable about the history of Belfast to a ludicrous degree, he's able to bring it all across in an interesting way. It's clear that not only has he done quite a bit of research, but he actually enjoys what he does. I can say that you will be getting a pretty good view into the history of Belfast, why it is the way it is today and of course the history of the native industries and the remnants thereof. The whole time, you will be with someone who is very friendly and encourages questions and engagement. Do not waste the opportunity.
