Join Me in Kilimanjaro!


Join me for the adventure of a lifetime next January 2024! I've teamed up with global leaders and all-round adventure legends, Earth's Edge, to bring you a bucket list event like no other. 20 of us will venture to Tanzania to climb the world's tallest free standing mountain and take in some of the most incredible sights and landscapes the beautiful continent of Africa has to offer. We'll meditate together on the mountain, embracing this amazing opportunity to let go of the the things in our life we no longer need and set our trajectory for how we'd like to see our life unfold, all in the shadow of the immense Mount Kilimanjaro. You will challenge yourself, share the experience with other wonderful like-minded souls and see the world from a truly different and magical viewpoint. You don't have to have any mountaineering experience, just a sense of adventure, a willingness to step out of your comfort zone and a strong desire to shout "let's do this!" 😄 Feeling like this adventure is calling you? Just click the button below for all the details on the trek and how to sign up!

2023 Live
In-Person Shows!

Thank you so much to the thousands of you who came to see my brand new, bigger and full nationwide "Mind Full" live shows! It has been my dream to bring this show to more people. After a tester tour last year, I was so bursting to do more and now I was so thrilled to be launching the tour proper, right across the country. This is Comedy meets Meditation, Belly Laughs meets Belly Breaths. A stress-busting mix of fun and brain-altering techniques, perfect for beginners or anyone who would like a bit more calm in their lives. In each show, I debunk the many myths around meditation and mindfulness and show how all the latest science points towards a new and exciting way to approach life. So, if you want more happiness and fulfilment or you or someone you care about is struggling with poor sleep, burnout, stress, lack of self-belief, low mood or anxiety, keep an eye out for more possible shows on the way and learn the techniques that have changed my life. And get ready to have the absolute craic along the way!

My Brand New Children's Book Out Now!

The Biggest Kids' Book of the Year!

I've brought my much loved radio character to life! 

Meet Noni. She’s a crazy old, law-breaking, chocolate-selling, pram-wielding, wickedly funny woman who likes nothing more than a dangerous caper!


Someone has tampered with the city’s supply of chocolate and now Noni and her young friends must find out who did it before the evil tricksters poison the whole town − including the dreamy rugby star, Chunks McSturdy.


Can Noni and her pram of seriously dodgy treats overcome the odds and get to the bottom of the mystery before all hell breaks loose? Will her pet raven, Francis, ever find enlightenment? Will anyone ever teach Noni to say the word ‘chocolate’ properly? Get ready for lots of laughs, tons of adventure and truck loads of chawwwklit!  As Heard on Today FM!

Learn to Meditate

I think this is a perfect time to lean into a meditation practice and get the ball rolling. There is a lot of stress and anxiety around and I'd love to help you find some more peace if you feel you need it. I've just added a new Family Meditation to my Start Meditating page! It's perfect for you and the kids to snuggle up and chill out together. And it'll keep them occupied for a whole 20 minutes! And possibly send them to sleep - bonus!


 If you missed my free 14 Day Introduction to Meditation Video Series, you can find it on my Youtube or my Instagram. Hit the subscribe button at the bottom of this page if you wanna be kept informed of any new stuff.

About Dermot

So, here's the story...

I’ve been standing on comedy stages and talking to millions of people on the radio for 16 years. Over that time I’ve come to realise that a lot of our problems stem from taking ourselves and our lives too seriously.  


How about a solution to life's challenges that can make you less anxious, more creative and so much happier?  No, it's not beer - it's meditation! 


Why should this amazing tool be taught in a serious and stuffy manner? As a certified meditation teacher, it’s my mission to get you started meditating and to give you a practice that actually sticks.  And, as a comedian, I insist we have some craic along the way! 


Want to know how and why I became a meditation teacher?
