Tour guide course in cork

Hello, I'm a taxi driver who spends some time showing tourists around the city. I'm interested in doing a course to get qualified as a tour guide, are there any of these courses available in Cork?

Hello Patsy, I had a look on the Failte Ireland website and while they don't list any tour guide courses in Cork they do list some training colleges in Cork which are running courses in related areas. One of these is Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa on Tramore Road which run a part time course on Archaelogy and Folklore (8 weeks, €100). Perhaps a course like this and a course in communications would be a good alternative.

There is a national tourist guide programme which is run yearly. The last National Tourist Guide Programme (NTGP) commenced on 19 October 2013 and continues until 29 March 2014.

This programme is delivered with an online element. However, there are a number of workshops and familiarisation trips included as an integral element of this programme. The venue is a Dublin city centre location.
