Fill your heart, soul and stomach
You can't possibly do everything in a city, but hey, that shouldn't stop us trying! The most varied tour yet, 'Tasting (nearly!) All of Dublin in 5 hours' is a leisurely stroll through the streets, sampling the full flavour of Irish history and Irish cuisine.
This is a food-themed version of '(Nearly!) All of Dublin in 5 hours' so as well as 4-8 food stops, we'll visit most of the sites and learn the most fascinating history (where did the Irish come from, Northern Ireland, Irish language).
Food (cakes, snacks, tapas, coffee, beer), sights as well as your own private guided tour of one of the city's must-do attractions (National Museum or Old Library of Trinity), will full up the day. Bellies, heads and hearts full of glorious Dublin - there's always room for ice-cream!
Depending on your preferences, we could also do a whiskey tasting, sampling the most unique Irish beer, Irish cheeses etc.
The tour is always improving and always custom-made for you.

Should the weather be against us we might stay inside for longer. I always do my best to make you as comfortable as possible.
Entry to the Old Library for The Books of Kells & guided tour
All food and drink offered to you during the tour. We'll be grazing at 2-4 stops like cafés, restaurants or pubs.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
15 Euro - You might want to 'upgrade' your drink/food so bring some cash in case you get tempted.
You might also want to get a taxi from where we finish as you'll be too full to move ;)
Anything not part of the standard tour. E.g. if you have an allergy, I will do my best to accommodate you and will make it up to you there are no alternatives.
Enough clothing for windy, chilly, rainy weather - it is Ireland afterall!
I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
Guiding inside some attractions, e.g. Trinity Library, Dublinia, is restricted somewhat.

Rating 5. Garvan is truly passionate about his country and the Irish people. He is also extremely knowledgeable about Irish history. He's a pleasant person with a good sense of humor. We learned a lot and along the way had lunch at a dinette frequented by locals, and stopped at a great ice cream store. We picked out Irish cheese from a local market and finished the day in a wonderful Irish pub where Garvan ordered several beer tasting samples which we drank with our cheese. A great experience.
