Dublin, Ireland

Hi Everyone, Cead míle fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) to the city of Dublin.

Dublin is an amazing City with a deep history in Literature, Music, Rebellions, and not to mention our famous hospitality and Pub culture.

While Dublin may have thousands of years of History and even more tales and stories to tell it is a small city and you can walk everywhere so on my tours some of the sights we will get to see and explore include but are not limited to, the General Post Office where the famous 1916 rebellion took place, Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, and Trinity College where we learn about the incredible book of Kells.

I am a professional and passionate guide who has been giving tours of Dublin since 2013. I pride myself on the energy, passion and charisma I bring to all of my tours and I would love to share these attributes with you. I have given over a thousand tours of my City covering every topic you can imagine from Traditional sports, Vikings, The Famine, Independence to the recent IT boom and everything in between.

So take a walk with me through the Cobbled streets of Dublin and learn about our folklore and story telling, embrace the Live music you can hear on our streets and pubs, see where U2 busk and Oscar WIlde lived, and meet Molly Malone as I share my passion of this city with you.


I have a degree in Psychology, psychoanalysis and a Masters in Computer science. I have been a tour guide in Dublin for over 4 years and was captain of the Irish Chess Olympiad team in 2018.


I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
