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

    Our guides Donal and Rory were both entertaining and well informed. We learned about the history and people of Ballynafeigh and enjoyed our walk through Ormeau Park and on up the Ormeau Road. We hope to take part in future tours and would like to take this opportunity to recommend Donal and Rory to anyone interested in the Ormeau Road area of Belfast.

    Although it was a chilly night, it was well worth it to go on this tour. Rory and Donal are knowledgeable and witty, keeping a good pace and covering local interest and history in the Ballynafeigh area. I hope to go on many more tours with them! And, not to be missed are Louise's mulled wine and mince pies! Perfect on a cold winter's evening and delicious, as well. Thank you so much!

    Professional, well informed guides made this a really enjoyable experience. We all knew Ballynafeigh well but found out lots of interesting facts and information that we didn't know. The tour was aided by having our own individual headsets so could hear everything despite being on the move and the traffic. Thanks Donal and Rory would highly recommend the tour.
