Hi,

This is the tour you need to do to get the main parts of Dublin.

Trinity College Dublin, this will be a major part of the tour as I am an alumni of the College. However please enquire if you want to enter the book of kells. I can save us time.

We'll pop up to Stephens Green and hang where locals hang, then we will go down Grafton street and follow the footsteps of Leopold Bloom. Molly Malone always features on my tour, and of course Dublin Castle will be in there. We will stroll up to Christ Church Cathedral, and through the famous Temple Bar.

We might include a few other hidden gems into my tour as well.

Itinerary

Depending on what interests you most, we can explore and experience:
Trinity College - past students include Oscar Wilde & Bram Stoker
O'Connell St - The Spire, Daniel O'Connell and James Joyce statues)
The GPO - 1916 Rising, Irish fight for Independence
Dublin Castle - seat of British administration in Ireland for seven centuries
Temple Bar - quarter of the city famous for its pubs and cultural attractions
City Hall - get an insight into Dublin's Golden Age in the 1700s
Old Parliament building - a great example of Dublin's majestic Neo-classical architecture.
Grafton St - this street is nearly synonymous with 'busking', Dublin's main shopping street.
Ha'penny Bridge - one of Dublin's icons
Leinster House - seat of the Irish Parliament

And so many more sites! You might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the smallest pub in the world (well, in Dublin at least!), some of the best buildings along the Quays, or even Molly Malone!

A Recent Review of this tour

If I could give Matthew 10 stars, I would!! We walked everywhere......he gave us great insight when visiting each stop, knew all the history, and covered every sight on the itinerary and then some. Matthew has a very pleasant personality to go along with his incredible knowledge! We had the added bonus of him singing us a couple songs! I highly recommend Matthew to anyone visiting Dublin. Next time we are there.......we'll be calling!
