Hi there! I'm Derek, your local host here in Dublin. There's nothing I love more than uncovering the layers of history etched into our old buildings and winding streets. Dublin's charm lies in its perfect balance – bustling enough to keep you entertained yet small enough to feel at home. The local people, with their warmth and humor, make this city truly special. You'll often find me enjoying a quiet drink in an old pub, or wandering through the museums and galleries, with the National Gallery and Chester Beatty being personal favorites. I know the South inner city, North inner city, and Smithfield neighborhoods like the back of my hand. I'm also your go-to guru for the best live traditional music and the rich history of Dublin’s Revolutionary Period. Let's explore the heart of Dublin together! See you soon.
