  • There are dozens of different tours of Dublin and its surroundings - on foot, by boat, by bus, even by amphibious vehicle! And what makes so many of them special is the quality of the guide. OF course you'll learn facts and figures and names and history, but rare is the tour where you won't also have a good laugh en route. Our number 1 tour, Viking Splash, ticks all the boxes - family, fun, crazy vehicle, great guide, exploring slightly off the beaten track, oh.. and did we mention the Viking Hats?!

    Tour number 2 is another of our favourites. It's difficult not to be stirred by the story of the 1916 Rising and the events both before and after it, and the passionate guides who run this tour give it their all, as well as throwing in plenty of gags along the way. And if you like this you'll probably also like the Historical Tour.

    The next three tours may sound specialist (Food, Music, Literary) and indeed to a degree they are but rare is the person who has no passing interest in these subjects and you don't need to know a thing about colcannon (it's a dish), a bodhran (it's an instrument) or Brendan Behan (he's a writer!) to enjoy any of these tours which are also full of social history. And of course the pub tours are great for socializing.

    For those of you who'd rather do your own thing with iPods or iPhones, Dublin Tourism have devised a series of twelve excellent walks from Georgian Dublin, to Castles and Cathedrals, In the footsteps of Ulyssees, and even a Guinness trail.

    Finally, if you have time to explore outside the city we can't recommend too highly the chance to visit Glandalough and the Powerscourt Estate. It's even better if you have your own transport but being realistic a tour may be the best way. And if you're a regular visitor to Dublin and have seen all of this before, then get out and about and explore Blarney Castle and the wonderful Ring of Kerry countryside.
