Philip D.

Dublin, Ireland

Dublin local. In love with this Fair City. I started guiding at 7 years of age by giving directions to the Castle, Cathedrals, chipper and pub (which I did not frequent).

My main interests are travel, language and history. I became a qualified guide in 2006 and combined all my learning to develop niche interests in Gothic Cathedrals and Viking ships.

There is no better way to appreciate and experience a city than by walking in the footsteps of the many famous and infamous characters who lived, worked and studied here. The highlight of any day is showing visitors around and discussing the odd, quirky and amazing history of Dublin.
The lesser known areas and citizens can amaze, amuse and entertain as much as the well known and popular.

For me any tour should be focused on the visitor and their enjoyment as this will result in a fabulous experience with happy memories that last. I'm mildly eccentric and customer centric. Welcome to sunny Dublin.
