Ciaran was so lovely and had so much knowledge about Dublin - could tell that he really loved his job and had so many stories that you wouldn’t hear on your average walking tour! Would definitely recommend!!!

The tour guide astonishingly succeeded in helping us walking through the beauty of the city. His logical and critical way of explaining guided us to appreciate the history of Ireland the Dublin itself. I strongly recommend this tour.

Eoin (pronounced Owen) is the king! He's entertaining, friendly, knowledgeable, and very likable. Richie gives a very heartfelt tour of the North's 1916 Easter Uprising points of interest, him being a Northsider and all. These tours are the perfect primer for however long you're in...More

We typically give 10 euro each for the free walking tours wherever we take them. We are a couple. Sometimes we use US dollars if that is all we have for currency instead. It is a bit less depending on currency rate.
