Born and bred in Dublin, in recent years I've been lucky enough to work in my home town. I love to be able to stroll through the city and take in whatever that day's offerings are. I rarely take larger groups now as I guess I prefer a style of guiding that is more based on a chat rather than a lecture. No matter where you are from, I hope that to some extent I will be able to draw comparison between the way we do things here and the way it's done in your neck of the woods. Sometimes it's nice to see that no matter how far the distance, we're really quite alike in many ways.
It's incredibly important to me that my guests get an accurate and unbiased account of Ireland's history, culture and politics to name but a few, albeit given from a personal viewpoint. It's equally important to me that you enjoy your time in Dublin. A sense of fun, or 'craic' should be had by you and I throughout our time together, hopefully this comes across in some of the less serious photos I have uploaded.
I'm a bit of a generalist in terms of my tours. In a good days sight seeing we should cover a good amount of not only what's to see in Dublin, but also discuss many topics that will give you a strong insight into life here. However, if you have special areas of interest that that we absolutely must cover, even in great depth, let me know and I'll sort it. In fact that goes for each of my tour itineraries. Being inflexible is a most un-Irish characteristic, so lets not be too rigid.
So why not drop me a line and we'll come up with a plan for your trip?
A Recent Review of this guide
My tour with Fergal was wonderful! I highly recommend him as a guide for a first-timer in Dublin. I love little side stories and trivia you don't read about in history books, so his commentary as we strolled the city was right in my wheelhouse. We lucked out with a lovely, crisp, sunny winter day to spend a few hours walking around. Excellent way to get your bearings and lay the groundwork for further exploration. Thank you so much, Fergal, for introducing me to your beloved city!

I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
We may have difficulties guiding through the grounds of my alma mater, Trinity College. We'll play it by ear though.
