Tourist guide training

(July 2019)

QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) is the state agency responsible for award standards for both National Tour Guiding and Regional Tour Guiding. A number of education and training providers have programmes validated by QQI to support achievement of these standards.

The providers of  these validated programmes will provide badges to graduates of the National Tour Guide and Regional Tour Guide programmes.

For those Tour Guides that achieved recognition pre-2015, Fáilte Ireland will continue to support the provision and replacement of badges on request on a cost-recovery basis.

Fáilte Ireland on behalf of industry will continue to host a directory of qualified tour guides and continue to be an advocate of tour guiding and recognises the importance that tour guiding plays in enhancing the visitor’s experience of Ireland.
