We recommend! Actually, I had booked the tour only because of my fellow travelers, since I have already been to Dublin five times. I thought we would go on the well-known tourist tour, but I was wrong ... Our guide Fiona was very good at communicating data and facts in an appealing way and at the same time bringing the Irish way of life and flair closer. We were led to places (especially along paths and alleys that are actually only known to Dublin residents) that someone without a guide could only discover by chance. I thought I knew a lot about Dublin, but Fiona showed me that there are still plenty of unknowns to discover in Dublin ... I can only recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a deeper insight into Dublin's history and flair. Thanks for the excellent guidance, Fiona! Greetings, Heike

Today we had a wonderful day with Fiona, since we were the only ones on the tour, she was very responsive to us and showed us wonderful corners. We would book it again and again, especially at the beginning of the holiday, as you can see such a beautiful side of Dublin and find many ideas for further activities. :)


The tour took place as a small group. It took us through various arcades, courtyards and buildings that you wouldn't find as a tourist. The tour was very informative and enthralling.
