*Have a specific date in mind that is not shown? Just send me a message to arrange a tour.* This tour is the perfect introduction to Dublin City and indeed Ireland. However, the tour is designed so that not only do you learn about the history and culture of this great city but you also get to know your guide on a personal basis. There will be no more than 5 people (including you) on this tour at any time. This guarantees a very small and intimate tour where we can get to know each other at the same time as we get to know Dublin. Think of this tour like walking through an amazing new place with a friend who happens to know a lot about the area, its founding and some of its most beautiful secret locations and stories! We will meet at an agreed upon city center location before embarking by foot throughout the city both Northside and Southside stopping off at key locations along the way, as well as many not so well known locations. Viking Dublin, Dublin Castle, Trinity College, The Famine memorial, Revolutionary sites and a traditional Dublin pub are just some of what awaits us.
My name is Tony and I am the founder of Real Dublin Tours. I specialise in 5 star unique, personal and private walking tours of Dublin. My tours are catered to a maximum of 5 guests so you are ensured a personable experience! I am from just outside Dublin and have graduated with a degree in Irish History from NUI Maynooth, Ireland. Along with this I have been leading tours around the world and Ireland for the past 5 years. I have a passion for ensuring people see the real side to Dublin while they are visiting here and learn about this amazing city and it's people.
We will meet at the Spire on O'Connell Street, right in the centre of Dublin city. From here we will weave our way through both Northside and Southside of Dublin. You will see the Viking origins of the city, learn about the Irish rising in 1916 for independence from England, visit Trinity College, the Famine memorial and finish near Dublin Castle. There will also be plenty of extra surprises a long the way.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the unpredictable Irish weather. You may also want to bring some cash for food/drinks a long the way. Also a camera for lots of great photos!
