Most of Dublin, in a day, on foot. History, politics, culture & architecture!

Dublin Trip Overview

This is a tour for those who are fit, flexible, and want to get a feel for the city, from a local with a lot of knowledge. I worked in property, and politics, in this city for many years, so have plenty to say! However, as it is your day and your tour, I take the lead from the client’s interests and if I see eyes glazing over, we change topic/take a break/change the plan. You have a guide for a day, and we make the most of it – I believe in being flexible and open. Previous tours where we have gone off plan have taken us on train trips, off to the Jewish Quarter, a themed pub crawl – you are on a holiday, not a school outing!
