“Free Dublin Walking Tour”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Really great free walking tour of Dublin. Our tour guide Neil was very well informed on the history and was so funny! He had the whole group laughing but you also really learn a lot.

After visiting a few sites they take you to a little cafe for some free coffee or tea. The tour itself was a really great way to get a little bit of a local perspective on the city and to get your bearings. Gives you a really good introduction to the city, and was a great place to meet a few other people from our, and two other hostels. You are also taken to a little pub where you can get a quick lunch if you like.

Really an exceptional experience, I'm so glad I went. (Keep in mind that the tour guides don't get paid for their time so tip generously, ~5-10 euro)

“Black pools of wisdom”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

This tour was a great introduction to Dublin's detail. Really wish I had enough time to do more of the HC tours & explore the sites we visited in more depth. Alan's passion for the city was infectious, & he was generous with his time & local knowledge even after the tour concluded, which our whole group appreciated.
These tours are a great way to see & soak up Dublin & meet other people. Well run, accessible & thoroughly enjoyable. The only way it could be better is if it was led by a Rave Bear ;)
Thanks Alan & HC

“Fantastic friendly tour guide!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

An amazing free three hour tour from our hostel, run by a local guide. Providing us with a short plotted history of Ireland, Dublin and details about the major sites. Would really reccomend doing at the start of your trip to get great local knowledge about the places, sites and things you should see during your stay. Thoroughly enjoyed it, thankyou!

“Really recommended”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The first guy who was supposed to give us the tour was so hang over that he couldn't, I think the company could look for guides that are responsible. The second guide was really nice, gave us a really informed tour, didn't insist to much on tipping which on the end make you want to give more tip, he was very knowledgable do Dublin and helped us a lot to chose places to visit, eat and go out. Me and the other tourists where very satisfied.
