Guide Bio

John is a journalist writing on antiques, architecture and design, a reformed lawyer, closely involved with the conservation of Ireland’s heritage, who has guided people around Ireland since the 1980s. His career includes being a visiting lecturer at The Smithsonian and the Irish representative of a Bond Street fine art auctioneer. Hobbies include hiking, horses, genealogy, theatre and, as he is married to leading cookery teacher Alix Gardner, food! He has been described as knowledgeable, organised, unflappable, entertaining and even as a lucky break!
