a drizzle day in dublin with the walkers is fun to do!

well worth doing on a rainy day in Dublin town. it is very easy to get around Dublin, and it helps to walk with a local to learn of some of the quirky spots.

This place is amazing whether it is a week day or weekend, this place will keep your night outs happening. You can find people gathering around artiest playing musical instruments and crowed singing with them. The street is full of night and is full of life. You can easily get a taxi anytime of night.

Great guide. We picked up the tour at Trinity and enjoyed our guides insight on history, political influences and architectural features of the area. Well worth the time.

Our guide shared lots of history with us in an interesting and engaging way. A cool, dry morning well spent. While the your took longer than advertised, he never rushed us, even offered to extend it a bit.

We spent so little time in Dublin, I was upset that I didn't find any tours on the net. We got out, stopped at the tourism office and found this tour. It was great, nearly for 2 hours we walked and learned about Dublin and its history. Our guide was a lovely lady. We had a very good Sunday morning... More

This is a walking tour around the old city, with stories and commentaries along the way. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable, with history and politics all combined to give a very informative overview of how and why Dublin became the Dublin of today.

Generally these tours are interesting and full of facts that even a Dubliner would not know. Perhaps I should go on one myself!!!.
