A leisurely stroll through the narrow streets of Dublin's old Jewish neighbourhood-Perfect for Cruise Ship visits


Meet me in the Bretzel Bakery, founded in 1870 as a Kosher Bakery, have a coffee and a delicious Bagel and take a unhurried amble through the narrow streets of Dublin's old Jewish Quarter.

We'll explore the history of the once vibrant Jewish Community and come with me to the Jewish Museum, with its wonderful collection of artifacts: a historical treasure trove. Enter the Old Synagogue in Walworth Road before further exploration reveals many more features of this fascinating area where members of my family were raised over 100 years ago.

The tour lasts approximately 2 hours. If you are a Cruise Ship passenger I can collect you dockside. If you are staying in a Central Dublin Hotel I can meet you there, and if your preference is to meet on site then the Bretzel Bakery is the place-Coffee and Bagels on me!
