I trace the history of Dublin from stone age roots, to Viking town, second city of the British Empire to modern European capital. I include recommendations for lunch, dinner and bars for good pint of Guinness or Irish music.
Sites visited on this tour include: Trinity College Dublin, the Book of Kells, Parliament House Dublin, Temple Bar, Dublin Castle and City Hall. This route is compact and all the sites are within 1 mile of each other. I can include other sites upon request.
I include stops for bathrooms and coffee/tea/water. Photos are permitted everywhere except at the Book of Kells. I organise skip the line tickets so you waste no time waiting in line. More than half the tour is indoors so I do my best to keep you out of the rain.
A three hour private walking tour of Dublin costs €150 in total for two people, or €75 each, and includes your skip the line tickets to the Book of Kells (€12 per person). Price increases €60 for each additional person. If you have more than 6 people in your party please email me below for a price quote.

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!

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.
