New to Ireland or arranging orientation for expat staff? Visiting Ireland for a holiday or on a layover and want to make the most of your time? Of Irish lineage or trying to prove you are...?!

 

Well! This entertaining urban adventure by foot around Dublin is the perfect choice! Essentially an "Ireland / Dublin...For Dummies" in tour format, on this tailored outing we give you a humorous crash course in all things Irish, teaching you how to "behave", think & act like an authentic Irish person while visiting some of the traditional must-sees and not so traditional sights at the same time. Two birds, one stone and all that jazz.
