  • What is a Free Tour?
    A Free Tour is an entertaining way to learn about the history and culture of a city. It is managed by professional guides who will take you through the most critical places in tours of approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes for free. At the end of the ride, the guides will accept tips or donations based on their performance on each ride.
  • Should I tip my guide?
    If the tour has been to your liking, you can tip your guide if you wish. Each professional works exhaustively to provide the best quality service.
  • Where do the tours end?
    All of our Dublin walking tours end in the city center. If you have any doubts, your guide will help you at the end of each journey.
  • What happens if it rains at the time of the tour?
    All our tours count even if it rains, so we recommend you bring an umbrella or raincoat. If the weather turns dangerous, we will email you in advance to let you know whether or not the tour will take place.
  • Do you have wheelchair accessibility?
    Yes, Dublin is a relatively accessible city for wheelchair users.
  • Do you accept large groups on the Free Tour?
    No. If you have a group of more than eight people, you must contact us to book a private tour. We will adapt the trek to the number of people and specific interests there.
  • Are children accepted on the tours?
    Children are welcome on our tours; however, due to the content of the Night Tour, we only recommend children over 16 years of age.
  • Is transportation included in the tours?

    In that case, we will need you to notify us five days before issuing the refund.

    We are a small company, and the livelihood of our guides depends on each tour. We can only modify a reservation if you notify us five days in advance. You can also transfer your ticket to another person who wishes to attend in your place.

COMMENTS

I loved this tour. I learned a lot about the history of women in Ireland. Dana, our guide, was very professional and filled us with anecdotes about the suffragettes of 1916. Recommended if you are interested in these topics.

An excellent tour. Valentina has been a great guide, her explanations have helped us learn more about Dublin and its history, especially about women that fought for their country and for their own rights. The guide answered all our questions and gave us some great recommendations. A highly recommended tour!
