Fáilte! So I’m Marteen, and this is my website, Marteen Lane – Tour Guide & Cultural Heritage Writer. I’m a Galway-based regional tour guide from Co. Mayo with a BA (Hons) in Heritage Studies. I have a passion for Ireland’s and in particular, Galway’s cultural heritage, and I want to share that passion with you here and on my social media accounts. I also have a special interest in women’s history and dark history.
It’s all go here as I run my own walking tours in my adopted city of Galway. As an approved regional guide, I offer three unique walking tours that aim to showcase Galway from different perspectives. HerGalway Walking Tour tells the stories of remarkable women from all walks of life associated with Galway. Medieval Galway Tour transports the visitor back to medieval Galway, where they can still see the remnants of that period in history around the city. Galway Dark Tour exposes the visitor to the murky world of murders, executions, and deaths, sharing with them Galway’s dark past.
Who knows where my adventures will take me. I hope you will join me on this journey and enjoy reading my posts. If you would like to hire me for paid freelance writing work, want to book me for a tour, or if you have any questions about Galway or Ireland in general, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Slán go fóill!
