This kind of tour can be tailored to suit all or any of your own particular tastes. You may have been here before and you want to visit specific things or bring someone who has not been here before. You might be interested in particular types of shopping for example. There are areas in Dublin which specialise in antiques, in fashion, in Irish souvenirs, in Crystal and in Irish woollens. You might even be interested in tracing family roots or finding information in a heraldry outlet using a family name.
All or any of these can be mixed with a familiarisation of the centre city with some history and culture thrown in. You may have a particular interest in the 1916 Easter Rising and sites associated specifically with that like Kilmainham Gaol, the General Post Office, the College of Surgeons or St Stephens Green.
You may like to mix a short tour of the Georgian houses of Dublin with that of some of the literary greats or perhaps a little history of the medieval period with the modern bustling centre city.
Dublin is one of the greatest cities in the world in which to do a “Pub Crawl.” Nowhere else on earth will you come across such an array of ancient (the earliest being established in 1198), tiny, large, colourful, amazingly decorated pubs that are suitable for all ages and tastes. The Irish pub front is something approaching an art form and many people from around the world come just to see them.
Another enduring feature of the city is the quality and selection of colourfully designed Georgian doors.
