What a wonderful idea! A visitor to Dublin meets with a local (volunteer) ambassador and you visit over a cup of tea or a pint in a pub. I wish EVERY major city had a program like this. When scheduling the visit, you fill out a simple questionnaire that asks for your age, number of people in your party, hobbies, etc. This information helps an ambassador pick someone with similar interests. I mentioned that I enjoy hiking, running, and reading and was met by my ambassador, Brian, a 5th generation Dubliner. We went to a place called Bewleys where we had a pint and talked for the next 2.5 hours. He gave me some great recommendations of places to go hiking in the near area. We also talked of traveling, the history of Ireland, and life in general. One of the best parts of traveling is meeting new people from different places around the world and learning from them. The "City of a Thousand Welcomes" program makes this easy and enjoyable. Highly recommend for any visitor to Dublin.
