From the beautiful gardens of Heywood to Machú's "leaning" Round tower, in Roghan's own Timahoe,the magnificent bastion that is The Rock of Dunamase and over the Sliabh Blooms to the source of the Barrow,we wallowed in in Roghan's description of battles, betrayals and beheadings.Even for four 60 year old Irishmen the tour was full of new information and good banter....

This was my first time ever traveling to Ireland and after 14 days with Roghan, it certainly won't be my last. If you're looking for a tour guide that not only knows the Irish history but is passionate about it and loves to share his immense knowledge of it, then Midway Ireland Tours and Roghan is exactly what you're looking...

Just had a tour of County Laois with someone who has to be Ireland's best tour guide. Roghan was passionate about Irish history His tour of the Rock of Dunamase and the Timahoe round tower was fantastic. History came alive with humor, knowledge and local culture tossed in. We loved every minute of out time with Roghan.

Fun, informative, not a dull moment! Roghan took us on a personal tour of his beloved Irish countryside. His knowledge of the history of this beautiful place gave us insight into why he loves it so much. Every story had a splash of humor amidst the information and we felt that he immediately picked up on tidbits that peaked our... More

We recently took a family cruise to the British Isles with 3 stops in Ireland: Cork, Dublin and Belfast. After visiting Ireland a year ago and experiencing a wonderful day tour with Roghan we inquired if he would be able to accommodate 9 of us at our Ireland ports. Roghan made our trip one to remember. He met us at... More

Roghan Headen is an excellent guide. I found him through toursbylocals.com. He corresponded promptly by email before the tour and he obviously spent time thinking about how to achieve my goals within my time frame. He was at the train station as promised and offered his ideas about how to organize the day. When it looked as though we might... More

We planned a trip to Ireland for April 2016, from California, to visit Castles in Ireland. There was a part of the trip that did not have public transportation for one of our destinations. I checked online for help and very glad there was no public transportation or we would not have met Roghan from Midway Ireland Tours. Roghan picked... More

Roghan met us at Spink and from there we explored the historical areas in and around Abbeyleix and Portlaoise, while making our way via the back roads to Dublin. We loved the many wayside monuments, most of which would be missed by the larger tour companies. Roghan's passion for Irish History, brought alive the stories behind each monument, making the...

We asked Roghan for the not typical tour off the country side. Didn't wish to see the usual tourist spots. Wanted to meet people, see small towns, understand heritage and what makes Ireland tick. We got what were asked for and more. Superbly friendly, wishing to accommodate, truly a craic. We will be back, and will be back to see... More
