Dublin Private and Small Group Walking Tours

( 338 )
Translated from Gaelic as “black pool,” Ireland’s lively capital city has rightfully earned its reputation as the country’s hub for literature, protest, and—as of late—technology.
From its early origins as a Gaelic village to the arrival of the Vikings, Normans, and the English, Dublin has long been a hub of the island nation. It certainly has the sights and monuments to prove it—from the hallowed halls of Trinity College, through the events of the Irish War of Independence, to following in James Joyce’s footsteps, there’s a story around every corner. Discover the city's remarkable past with Context's Dublin private tours.

Dublin Private Tours and Dublin Small Group Tours

We always advocate getting off the beaten path, and thematic walks are a great way to do this. In Dublin, we offer several Dublin private tours and Dublin small group tours. For the bookish, we suggest our Literary Walking Tour of Dublin, which traces the work and lives of Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, and other key writers from Dublin, visiting important locations like Oscar Wilde's home and Samuel Beckett's pub of choice with local Dublin private guides. Building buffs will love our Dublin Architecture Tour, which visits Dublin City Hall and Dublin Castle, examining how what began as a Viking settlement evolved to incorporate spacious Georgian-style roads. Finally, develop an application for the grossly underrated Irish cuisine scene (complete with ample samples) on our Dublin Food Tour. Meanwhile, no trip to Dublin is complete without a visit to Trinity College. Learn about the storied history of the Old Library and some of the treasures contained within on our Book of Kells Tour, examining how the light of learning shined brightly in Dublin throughout the Middle Ages, and learning how the unbelievably intricate illuminated manuscripts of the era were made.

Catherine was an extraordinary guide! She gave off herself and her vast knowledge freely and openly and was a true treasure. We had done another tour in Paris recently and had one of your guides, Lily, who in the same fashion made history come alive. Our group of seasoned travelers cannot say enough about the quality of your guides and how personable they were. We parted friends, most unusual, but heartfelt.
The Dublin in a Day tour was a wonderful experience we would highly recommend to others. As first-time visitors with just a few days to spend in Dublin, we wanted to quickly get oriented and get a feel for the history of the city. Our guide, Kevin, really delivered! His knowledge of Dublin and Irish history, architecture, and culture seems limitless, and we discovered he can also provide information about US history, religion, and politics, Japanese anime, whiskey, art, and much more. We also appreciated Kevin's flexibility when our travel connections didn't work out as planned and we needed to push back our start time. If you want a quick skim and superficial trivia - take the bus tour. If you want a thorough and thoughtful dive into what Ireland is (and only have a day) this is your tour.
Cat was the best Context tour guide we’ve ever had. She is so knowledgeable and fun to be with. It was perfection.
