John Colclough

A reformed tax lawyer, I have organised tours around Britain and Ireland since 1980.  My earliest customers included Judy Peil of St Louis and West Oehmig of Chattanooga, some of the very first Virtuoso Agents.  I continue to look after vacations and meetings for the most demanding clients in the world, fulfilling dreams and exceeding expectations.

I have also worked closely with government and heritage historic house owners to develop their tourism potential.

I write on Irish food, houses, ghosts and antiques for various British, Irish and American newspapers and magazines and regularly lecture in America to heritage organisations.  I love travelling to off the beaten track destinations around the world and try and show clients similar secret sites in Britain and Ireland.



I grew up in a large family with a great interest in fine art and history we divided our time between Dublin and Mayo.  Through my network of friends and family I enjoy making connections and planning amazing experiences for our guests.

I take great pleasure in meeting new people and all kinds of travel and have spent time in Paris, Boston and London.   I worked with one of the large London based fine art auctioneers which furthered my interest in the arts, antiques and ancient treasures.


Pamela Coyle

Born and bred Dubliner, I am a dedicated lover of all aspects of our capital city along with the coastal regions of Ireland. I delight in welcoming and tailoring tours for each visitor while sharing Ireland’s curiosities relating to culture, history, architecture and food. I worked for many years in the Irish book publishing industry before I entered the tourism industry 14 years ago as co-founder of Fabulous Food Trails.

When not devising and organising trips around the country I love to cook, swim and spend time with friends and family in the Irish countryside.
