A very personal view of old Jewish Dublin
Join me in a fascinating journey through the narrow streets of the Old Jewish Quarter of Dublin. I will share with you a fascinating glimpse into the past and I will regale you with treasured memories going back to my Grandparents times. I will make it a special and personal experience for you sharing these memories as we amble through this very historic area of Dublin.
We will have some refreshments in the Bretzel Bakery, baking wonderful Kosher breads, bagels and goodies since 1870. You can leaf through my old family photos and documents which will further enhance your experience.
Then come with me to see the treasured memorabilia in the Jewish Museum, just around the corner and then to the Old Synagogue in Walworth Road. Next we will take a scenic drive south along the coast to Sandycove to see the historic Martello Tower containing the James Joyce Museum-visited by Joyce and visited by Leopold Bloom in the classic book Ulysses.
Viking, Norman and Victorian history also awaits you!

Peter was an outstanding guide. Through his personal experiences he gave us an unusual insight into what Jewish life in Dublin had been and what it is now. At the Jewish Museum he introduced us to other Jewish Dubliners and that added to our experience. His knowledge was not limited to Dublin Jewish life, but shared with us information about Ireland in general. We enjoyed our time with Peter and think others would as well.
