Jack W.

Dublin 1, Ireland

I am a passionate and knowledgable guide as well as an experienced actor of stage and screen.

I live in Dublin city centre and know the city and it's hinterland like the back of my hand. I became a guide when I saw that it was all about storytelling and that's what I'm good at and I have a lot of stories to tell. I actually trained as a mime artist under the great Marcel Marceau in Paris and have graced most stages in Ireland including the world renowned Abbey Theatre, and many abroad.

On screen my credits include Educating Rita and Vikings on the History Channel and many many others. I love giving tours where we can get close to the city. Insider Dublin Tours, tours about the great writers in Literary Dublin (Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, Beckett, Stoker etc), which can also blend with Dublin's Famous (and not so famous) Pubs. It's up to you, completely separate or a mix and match, I love it all.

A Recent Review of this guide

Excellent guide and tour. My husband and I learned so much about Irish history and found the James Joyce reading a real treat. Jack is easy to be with and very entertaining.
