Who We Are

Angela Bane and Bernadette Mullarkey have worked together as Bane Mullarkey since 2002.

With decades of experience and a deep understanding of tourism and hospitality, we work with clients to create, promote and deliver great experiences; experiences that give adventure, pleasure and meaning to holidaymakers from Ireland and overseas.

A Wealth of Experience

Based in Galway on the magnificent Wild Atlantic Way, we work – in person and online – along the Wild Atlantic Way, in Ireland’s Ancient East, in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and in Dublin.

We are both Commerce graduates from NUI Galway and we also hold qualifications in Business Coaching. Bernadette is Chair of Gaillimh le Gaeilge and a former Chair of Galway International Arts Festival. She is also fluent in Irish and in Italian.

Why Work with Us?

We love tourism and we embrace every aspect of the industry: from cultural sites and visitor attractions to festivals, activities, food and accommodation.

Tourism is a wonderful industry, full of innovation and creativity. But it’s facing many challenges. That’s where our professional and personal skills can help.

With a combined 40+ years of experience, and described as strong but empathetic, we work in partnership with clients and build long-standing, respectful relationships. We connect by walking in our client’s shoes, understanding their hopes, their anxieties and their challenges, and helping them reach their goals and their potential.
