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...
Looking to get outside the capital for a half day trip? A visit to Powerscourt House and Gardens in County Wicklow is perfect for nature, architecture and history lovers. Read More...
