Dublin Tour Guide offers fully customised private walking tours of Dublin city, with passionate and knowledgeable guides who share their expert opinion on the best sites to visit, best food to sample, best souvenirs to buy and best pints to sip at the end of the day.
With degrees in Medieval Irish and Celtic Studies, Languages and Political Science, and a lifelong fascination in history, the guides' knowledge is not in short supply. Dublin Tour Guide's aim to fully immerse you into Dublin life, from the the vikings, its founders, and Anglo-Normans, its conquerors, to the centuries of British domination, the Easter Rising and Proclamation of Independence. You will take a stroll through the milestones of Irish history, the oddities and melodic patterns of Irish language, Irish drinking culture (beyond St Patrick’s day), along with some mildly macabre Irish humour.
Inspired by lectures in Celtic Studies, Garvan also focused on Ireland’s history before the 12th century, the golden age that preceded the English conquest and shaped Ireland into one of the most unique countries in not just Europe, but the world.
All guides at Dublin Tour Guide adhere to the same vision and goals which is introducing the visitors to the city through the eyes of its people, experience Dublin history through the cobblestones of its streets, the multitude of its languages and accents and the scents and flavours of local food and pints.
