I have a degree in History from University College Dublin and am a Fáilte Ireland approved tour guide for Dublin City and Environs. I have worked in Trinity College, the Vatican, Rome City, Glasnevin Cemetery and the General Post Office in Dublin and I work for Rick Steves in Dublin and throughout Ireland. Below are a list of my most requested tours of Dublin and the surrounding province of Leinster.
This three hour walking tour of Dublin is a perfect orientation to the Irish capital. It covers Trinity College Dublin, the Book of Kells, Parliament House Dublin, Temple Bar, Dublin Castle, City Hall, George's Street Arcade and Grafton Street. Read More...

Dara made the whole foot pounding experience very interesting with a touch of humour thrown in for good measure. Without him pointing out things on the way we would have missed a lot. My teenage daughter was not looking forward to the tour, but afterwards she commented on how much she got out of it and found it very funny.

Very funny and Entertaining
Dara was fantastic!! Really informative, considerate of everyone on the tour. Aware that it was a long tour with a lot of walking and was always aware of the groups comfort and needs. He was also very funny and entertaining, I would highly recommend him!
