As a Galway born and bred tour guide, it’s always nice when a client fires a compliment my way after I’ve shown them around the city I’m proud to call home.

The weirdest compliment I ever received in my 25 years in the tourism business came from a Texan in cowboy boots and a Stetson. As he was six-foot-six, I would have accepted an insult just as graciously.
