Our Staff

James Foley

Beyond The Glass Adventure Tours was established by James Foley. James was born and raised on a farm in Aghabullogue, Co. Cork. His passion and love for Ireland was instilled in him from a young age as he travelled with his family the length and breadth of Ireland. His appreciation for Ireland grew further in his adult years as he began to hike Ireland’s Mountains and Cycle along its Wild Atlantic Coast.

James’s previous career, with multi-national pharmaceutical companies, allowed him to travel to some fantastic places across Europe, Africa, Asia and America. While travelling he got to hike and cycle in many wonderful locations.

He has setup BTG Tours to take you “beyond the glass”—the glass of your device, the bus window, and your office PC— for your very own unforgettable Adventure Tour of Ireland.


Beyond the Glass Adventure Tours is one of Ireland’s youngest activity holiday companies. We have developed three of the best, hiking and cycling tours on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Our ambition is to take you ‘BEYOND THE GLASS’ of your work PC, your phone and the bus window, and immerse you completely into the wonder and beauty of the Irish landscape. We will show you the best of Ireland while delivering to you the ultimate adventure travel experience.

On our tours you will see some of the most spectacular and scenic places in Ireland, as well as Ireland’s richest historical and cultural sites. All our guides are knowledgeable, experienced and have an appreciation and love for what Ireland is and has to offer. They have a passion for Ireland’s natural beauty, culture and heritage and an understanding of what is required for a successful and enjoyable travel experience.

The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest defined coastal touring route in the world. It stretches for over 2,500km along Ireland’s spectacular western seaboard.
