      Meet a Local in Dublin - Private Tour

      Dublin, Ireland
      From (USD) $348 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known as a "docent" (from the Latin for teacher), this Ph.D. and M.A.-level scholar-guide will make the difference between seeing Dublin and understanding it.
      • It's personal: This experience is all about you and your gang. Choose your own departure time, set a pace that works for your small group (up to 6), and customize a walk that's in step with your passions. Even tour length can be flexible. 
      • We come to you: Your docent will meet you at the hotel or apartment where you're staying and start out by getting you familiar with your neighborhood – its landmarks, nearby transport options, restaurants, markets, pubs, and more. 
      • Experience more Dublin: This tailor-made intro will help you make the most of your time in town. You'll walk away with advice on local customs (and decoding Gaelic words!), recommendations for dining, shopping, insider events and concerts, and guidance on the must-see sights. 
      • Get a jump: Let us know any specific questions or goals you have in mind when signing up for this tour, and we can personalize it even better – arriving with maps, info, and answers pre-prepped for you.  

      About This Dublin Tour

      New to Dublin?  You'll probably arrive toting a list of must-see's that includes Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Trinity College, the Guinness Brewery or Jameson Distillery, and some other marquee attractions. But this cobbled capital's so much more than the sum of its most famous landmarks. 

      The key to fully experiencing it is to unlock some lesser known secrets. Like which of Dublin's 750-odd public houses offers the most intriguing ales, smoothest whiskies, and most storied literary history. Which restaurants cook up the most authentic Irish stew, flakiest fish and chips, or most savory coddle or crubeens (you'll have to find out what those are from your docent; our lips are sealed). And where you can find a world-class Leprechaun museum, experience life aboard a Viking warship, or visit a gaol (jail) that held Ireland's most famous prisoners from 1796 on. 

      The only practical way to get up to speed on all that in a wee bit of time is to book a private Welcome to Dublin orientation confab – and fill your reservoir of local knowledge from a docent who's been around not just the block your staying on, but nearly every other character-encrusted nook and cranny Dublin has to offer. 

      With this intro under your belt, you'll be ready to take Dublin on with a better sense of its layout and ground-covering options, and a working understanding of its history and customs. Just don't expect to be ready to read and pronounce Gaelic words that don't sound anything like how they look.

      That would be a whole other tour.
