See the city, the real city, with a local guide
When you have only a few hours to see a city, an authentic experience is what is needed. Avoid coaches, queues, and tickets and instead get the real thing! Our tour will take in some of the best sights in the city, at a pace that suits you. Your guide, Dairine, will have consulted with you to see what you would like to do now you are on dry land and suggested a suitable itinerary. That might be museums, ancient colleges, Georgian squares, bridges or even viewing some mummified bodies if you want a good fright!
I will meet you with transport, in the port and we will travel into the city centre together and get into Dublin life with someone who knows and loves the city well. Dublin is lively, Dublin is gorgeous and Dubliners know how to enjoy themselves. Experience this with your own group, at your own pace and get more from your time in this great city.
This will be suggested by myself when I have heard from you as to what you want to do with your time in Dublin. Tours have ranged from drinking coffee and visiting fruit shops in Dalkey village, climbing the cliff tops in Howth to a full tour of the city taking in Dublin Castle, Trinity College, National Museum and St Patrick's Cathedral. I am happy to make suggestions and am a great believer in quality over quantity - in plain English, dont try to do everything, do a few things and really enjoy them!
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: I will pick you up at the port, or your hotel, or a location of your chosing (within reason!) and we will travel together to the city centre. I am a licensed Small Public Service Vehicle holder and own a limousine licensed and insured to drive for hire or reward.
End location: I will leave you back to the port, your hotel, your pickup point or in the city centre if you wish to shop or visit more attractions after your tour with me.
Duration: 4 hours
I am suggesting a four hour tour as being enough to get a taste of the city, learn some information and leave some time to enjoy the city yourselves. The start time depends on your sailing schedule
Transportation by private limousine (Mercedes E200 - 2013) However, to view some of the attractions, some walking is necessary.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
40 Euro - Any admissions, coffees, snacks etc

What a pleasure to be picked up in Dairine's very comfortable Mercedes! The weather was less than ideal, but it did not stop us from having a wonderful day in Dublin. Dairine is so knowledgeable about her city and the history of Ireland. We saw everything we wanted to visit which included a fascinating tour by her of some of the most important paintings in the National Gallery. I give Dairine 5 plus stars.
