Wat je gaat doen

After Irish Independence, a few men sat down and thought about what they would do with Dublin. “How could we make such a British Imperial city the new Irish capital!”, they thought. We can't possibly tear down all the British parts, can we... If we did that there'd be nothing left but the pubs!

(They decided, in the end, to take the high road and keep those remnants of colonialism to show their restraint to succeeding generations so that they would grow up respecting all aspects of our shared history. Besides, they didn't have the money to tear them down.)

Since then, Dublin has become a symbol of reconciling Ireland's British past with its Irish future. British Trinity College with its Protestant legacy has produced Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift and Dublin's pubs have produced writers from the Irish tradition, e. g. Patrick Kavanagh and Brendan Behan. This tour is therefore a tribute to Dublin's dual personality, and the pub door will be the boundary between the two worlds.
Other things to note
This tour is suitable for all ages.
Travellers with mobility issues can be accommodated: the tour is well-paced and combines walking with pub breaks.
Children (16 years old and younger) can join for free, accompanied by an adult.

I am an experienced, energetic, passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide of Dublin City since 2009. I specialise in private walking tours for small groups, which allows us to make a personal connection with each other and with Dublin.

As well as being a certified tour guide, I have B. A. Int. in Medieval Irish and Celtic Studies, so I have the legends and the facts that guide books will never have.

As we walk the streets, I’ll recount the stories and the histories, sing the songs, recite the poems, deliver the jokes, and tell you the banter of this charming city. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who can match my styles and be passionate & emotional, dramatic & theatrical, interactive and funny and epic all on the same tour!
