    What to Expect
    The tour begins with pickup from your accommodation anywhere in Dublin, at your chosen start time. An early start is recommended to get the most out of your day, however you can start your tour as late as 1pm in the afternoon during the summer time and 10am during the winter. It gets dark around 5pm throughout December and January and the darkness may spoil some of the beautiful scenery.

    You will get to visit and experience many of Dublin city's most popular sights. Expect to see the Jeanie Johnson, Trinity College (Book of Kells), St Patricks Cathedral, Kilmainham Gaol, Guinness store House, Malahide Castle, Portmarnock, Howth Village and the Summit and the Phoenix Park. This tour allows you to explore the whole of Dublin in one day. It is a great way to discover where you would like to explore more during your stay in Ireland. 

    This private tour can be as flexible as you like with regard to where you want to stop and take your time and which stops you would prefer to just browse on past. If you've found a new sight you'd love to explore just let your guide know and they'll work their way through the city to accommodate the extra stop and include it within the tour time frame.

    Your driver will provide entertaining stories about growing up in Ireland including old and ancient tales about old Ireland. They will also offer great advice on where to stop off and have lunch.

    All vehicles less than one year old with a lot of leg space for your comfort. Most of our vehicles are now fitted with Wi-Fi for you to use at no extra charge. This trip will provide a very private and comfortable experience for up to four people (including baggage).

    Tour will end after approximately 8 hours.

    Some of our guides are taxi drivers. We use taxis because this enables the use of the bus lanes helping to fit in more sights and destinations and avoid being stuck in traffic throughout the day. We also use taxi guides because of their deep knowledge of the city and their entertaining story telling abilities.

    What's so wonderful about Alan is that he finds the right balance between his vast knowledge as a tour guide and our preferences as guests. We felt very taken care of all weekend. We also hired Alan for additional private transport and he looked after us as if we were family.

    Alan was very knowledgeable and we appreciated the options he gave us as we had a limited amount of time. He loves his country and shared so many interesting facts about the history. We would highly recommend this tour company and will book with them again when we return!
