Alexander V.

Dublin, Ireland

I am a Dublin based historian and writer that specialises in providing bespoke tours of Dublin's past.

I am an accredited Historian having graduated from Trinity College Dublin and the University of Edinburgh. If you are a true "History Buff" or interested in travelling the road less travelled please read on.

I consider myself a storyteller and historian. I don't think of what I do as work. My mother always told me that if you love what you do you won't work a day of your life, and I truly feel that I have found that. If you come on one of my tours you will not be meeting a tour guide. You will be spending several hours with someone that is deeply passionate about history and literature. I, like most Irish people, revel in gallows humour and absurdism, so if you take life seriously and have no sense of humour BEWARE!

My tours are for people that love history. In all its darkness, humour, and majesty. I will show you a side of Dublin many are too afraid to show. Whether that be the Irish Famine, the Jewish Quarter of Little Jerusalem, the muck of Medieval Dubh Linn or the architectural beauty of our Georgian past. If that intrigues you, I look forward to meeting you!

Credentials

- Bachelors Degree in History from Trinity College Dublin
- Masters Degree in British and Irish History from University of Edinburgh

Restrictions

I am not a driver but I can arrange a separate car and driver.
