I took this tour on Saturday morning, just rocking up to the ‘Spire’ as instructed. Eoin led about 20 of us for over 2 hours thru the south inner city tour and entertained and educated us in equal measure. Well recommended 👍

I did the Tour that started at the Spire (looks like a big silver needle/ You can’t miss it). It’s in Central Dublin... it crossed both sides 👍🏼. Great historic information by the Guide James

hi there, all the guides are aware of people's limitations and normally carried out at a casual walking pace so should not be a problem. total distance covered is 2.5km (1.5 miles) with a coffee break in the middle

I believe it runs rain or shine as they do carry big yellow umbrellas. I second the other poster who said go with Conor. He was GREAT!

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.
