Private Walking tour guide

Hello,

My wife and I are taking our first trip to Ireland end of next month and for our first full day there we would like to hire a private walking tour guide to show us around Dublin, just for 3 hours or so. Can anyone recommend a tour guide or company? Thanks so much, as info I promise to report back after our trip :)

Just to follow up on my previous message, I did hire tours by locals.com, our tour Guide was Barbara, and I can honestly say it was the best tour of our trip. She was nice, funny, very informed and just a lot of fun to walk around with. We covered a lot ground in just 4 hours, and it really made planning the rest of our week very easy. Again, I cannot say enough great things about Barbara from tours by locals.com
