Our most popular tour for university students is a 3hr walking tour of Dublin that not only orientates them, and educates them about the city’s most important sites, but more importantly, we specifically tailor the tour to the students, providing them with the crucial enlightening knowledge they need to understand how Irish people socialise so that they can integrate and make friends with Irish students – normally the most elusive goal for host universities.
We also offer ‘step-on guide’ services to provide an in-depth, memorable tour to Wickow & Glendalough, The Boyne Valley, Belfast, and The Cliffs of Moher.
All of our guides have years of experience, they’re trained and qualified, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic to give the students the best tour they’ll ever have. Most of our guides are under 36yrs of age, so they can better connect with the students compared to much older guides.
Don’t just take our word for it. Read our reviews below.
“Garvan was amazing from the moment he met us! He was quite the performer, easy to talk to, and made things funny when they were, but also got quite serious when talking about some of the sadder parts of Irish history, which was awesome because you could see how much he cares. It was a super fun tour and he was full of good advice for being in Dublin. He made sure we all got maps and were accounted for. I would recommend to everyone!”
Dr. Brad Love, School of Advertising & Public Relations, University of Texas at Austin
“Summer 2015 I and about 20 of my students spent two weeks in Ireland for a study of Irish literature, and we had Garvan the tour guide. This guy told histories, told stories, walked, biked, bussed, and sang us through Ireland. At no point did I feel like he was a paid tour guide going through motions, but rather an Irish guy who was passionate in sharing his culture and histories with us. Every day was something new, no questions went unanswered, and I do plan on returning to Ireland as a direct result of his work.”
Stacy Rice, English Literature, Northern Virginia Community College
“For our introduction to Dublin – and first real “touring” in Ireland, we selected Dublin Tour Guide on recommendation from staff at Maynooth University. It was an excellent recommendation and a wonderful tour. Garvan, our guide, easily related the historical and cultural significance of what we saw through engaging story-telling. His style is not formal – and his tour works beautifully because of it. He was patient with our group, allowing us to proceed at our own pace, and generously answered questions about Dublin, Ireland, and Irish people and culture. I will utilize this operator when I bring another group to Ireland and recommend it to colleagues.”

“Garvan’s tour was a high point of our trip. His energy is contagious and his knowledge incredible. He made Ireland’s sad history very entertaining. He earns extra points for coming out and doing a pub-crawl for us, despite the fact that he was not feeling well. I fully intend to call again when I am next in the area and recommend him highly to future travelers.”
Letitia Nodes, MBA, Averett Uni
“Garvan was very helpful and knowledgeable. He showed us a great time and I felt like he wasn’t only our tour guide but also our friend. He was so sweet and excited about the subject. He told hilarious interesting stories and explained to us the heritage and culture of Ireland. He was a blast to travel around with and every day was something new and exciting. He even made the bus rides more entertaining. I would recommend Garvan to anyone looking to learn lots and have a blast while doing so.”
