Even if you only have a few hours, the buzzing streets and immersive atmosphere make it hard to not want to see the city through an original lens. After ticking off your must-see sights in the city, allow your host to lead you off the beaten track and offer a glimpse into authentic local life in Dublin.

They can’t wait to share their home city with you, and although half a day isn’t possibly long enough to see all there is in this bustling urban antiquity, we hope you’ll embrace it all!
