Meet Hazel


Hazel loves exploring and regaling people with stories and giving a glimpse into the city known for its love of cheeky rhymes and ballads. Her background is in the travel and tourism industry in Ireland, and she has juggled roles ranging from tutor to travel agent. Travelling has always been in her blood. Hazel’s grandfather was a driver-guide, and her interest in becoming a guide started almost a decade ago when she took a group of excited students on a walking tour of Dublin, captivating them with the city’s culture. Since then, there has been no turning back. With her tours, you might find yourself mingling with the locals, who love to get involved with the tour! With a dash of surprise, Hazel loves entertaining people with fun stories and experiences. “An unforgettable experience that I had was when myself and a friend got chatting with a well-known Irish author and we ended up back at his house cooking spaghetti Bolognese!” she says. She is the owner of Virtually Irish, a new and exciting venture showcasing the best of what Ireland has to offer.

Thankyou Hazel for taking us on a lovely walk in Dun Laoghaire, sad to hear of so many lives lost and ships wrecked on this coastline 🙁 Was nice though to hear the music in the background everywhere is coming back to life so to speak. Would love to do more sunset walks with you, lovely calm unrushed walks are so nice taking in the views 😍 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

A lovely walk through the seaport city! Hazel presented an interesting narrative on all the lost ships and the lives lost to the sea! We concluded with a walk along the pier with a beautiful sunset!
