*Fantastic Dublin you become informed about the history the architecture the hidden secrets and you feel the energy of the streets and it touches your heart.* REVIEW

We will begin on Henrietta St, the first Dublin Georgian street built and examine the Grandeur of these 1700's mansions. This was a time when Dublin was wealthy and considered the second City of the old British Empire. The parliament closed in Dublin in 1801 then these fine houses fell into decline.

We will move onto the 19th & 20th centuries and see these homes converted into tenements where whole families lived in each room. Who tried to alleviate the hardship of famine refugees or profit by it!

A home for many is an apartment block but in the past many people lived communally in Convents, Abbeys and laundries and we will see a convent which was originally the home of a developer.

We will travel to Green St Courthouse and understand the trials people faced when there was no CCTV or forensics with swift trials and IRA cases.

We will visit Dublin Markets to see where fruit and veg was sold from the 1890's and early houses or pubs still open at 7 am for the sellers.

We will cross the Liffey to see Medieval Fishamble St without a hoop. Then onto Winetavern St the Viking core and find Tavern Tokens! We will finish at a spying pub where information was gathered during the War of Independence by Michael Collins
Other things to note
This Tour is available as a private tour and would be a great present for friends or family.
If it's cold we may stop for a hot drink in an early house, it can be cold summer or winter in Dublin!

I have been a Tour Guide since 2010 beginning the journey at Castletown House, Kildare a Palladian Mansion. Then onto Farmleigh House, a former Guinness Home and a fantastic, place to visit beside the Phoenix Park. Then onto Áras an Uachtaráin, home of the President. I worked on Hop on Hop Off bus tours and out of town locations including Wicklow, Howth and Galway.

It's been brilliant meeting people from all over the world and having the opportunity to tell everyone about my City. I have developed an interest and narrative about the homes of Dublin and want to share this with you. The home is a personal place now but historically many people lived their lives in public. 1700s Dubliners would have their curtains wide open so passers by could see their important guests. This tour gives you a public and private view of home through the age

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will begin the tour on Henrietta Street one of the finest 1700's Streets to be constructed in Dublin and the first.

We will then pass an old Jail and Courthouse. The building was used for Special Criminal Cases in the Troubles. It still hears trials and also houses film crews for costume drama.

Then we will visit the purpose built Victorian food Markets. Onto the Ruins of an Abbey, the Viking and Medieval Core and onto present day Dublin....

This was a great and interesting tour and I would thoroughly recommend it. I am a Dublin native and had a family member visiting. There were many things I learned and some fascinating insights into this wonderful city. It was especially interesting to absorb the history through the architecture. Ruth was a great guide, very friendly, funny and knowledgeable on the subject. 10/10

The tour with Ruth is amazing. She's cultured and sensitive, professional yet funny, a very elegant woman and down to earth at the same time. She's got the ability to outline the main historical events connecting them through "little" details and focus on the material life of human people of the past centuries, blending architectural, political, business, legal and geographical stories to form an exhaustive picture. It's an experience that leaves you with the awareness you've been truly welcomed as a guest in this beautiful country.

Ruth’s fun and informative walking tour is a great way to learn more about the history of Dublin and its people. Ruth has a deep knowledge of Dublin’s history and a very engaging way of telling it. She clearly has a deep love for her city.

Ruth was incredibly kind and answered all our questions. She’s very knowledgeable and gives a good amount of information you won’t find on any of the mainstream walking tours.
