As a visitor to Dublin, you're quite likely to see the main historical points and oldest churches the guidebooks say are must-sees. But what do locals really like to do, see, eat and drink in Dublin? I'd love to show you.
Did you know there's a rooftop garden on one of Dublin's museums with one of the best views of the city? Did you know there's a Georgian building full of tiny boutiques and cafes just off the high street? Wonder where we go to escape the tourists? Well, walk with me. I'll show you the inside scoop.
And as we walk, I'll even teach you the best way to order a good pint of Guinness and we'll work on your Irish slang. When we're done I'll even send you on your way with recommendations for the rest of your visit.
We can tailor your tour depending on your familiarity with Dublin and your interests. Or we can pick a neighborhood and explore all of its ins and outs, from cafes and pubs, to galleries, markets and public transportation.
