What you'll do

Some places only come alive after dark, or at least in the later hours of the day - and indeed that might be said of Dublin. At evening time the city's majestic architecture, its wrought-iron railings and bridges take on an eerie, almost Dickensian look. And yet this is Ireland, and the nearby pubs teem with banter and the strains of lively Irish music played on the fiddle and on the tin whistle. . .

The Evening Tour will show you what few visitors see - Dublin’s more romantic ‘after 6pm’ ambience - with neither an office worker nor another tourist in sight. A great end-of-day activity for couples, groups or just the individual flâneur, the tour starts from the iconic Spire in O'Connell Street and calls at the General Post Office and the city's haunted Ha'penny Bridge.

We briefly immerse ourselves in a more contemporary Dublin as we visit the lively Temple Bar district, and call in on The Project - the club where supergroup U2 were originally spotted by talent scout Paul McGuinness.

Moving on, we view the Old Irish Parliament and the elegant Mansion House - home to Dublin's Lord Mayor and the first dedicated mayoral residence in either Ireland or Great Britain.

Our evening stroll finally concludes at the Molly Malone statue, opposite O'Neills' Gastropub.... I'll then let you know who the legendary Molly Malone really was - and tell you the tragic secret of her beauty!

I'm an experienced Dublin Tour Guide with over 400 5-star reviews to my name online, and have been tour guiding for nearly 10 years now; I've led bus tours not only around Dublin but also to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare and the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland (with Wild Rover Tours). I am regularly in demand with most of the main walking tour operators in the Irish Capital, and like to spice up my tour content with quirky and unusual items such as referencing the Viking Sagas (which mention a lot about Dublin), the fact that Ireland once had its own time zone (did you know that?), as well as a little of our local Dublin humor.

Our tour with Jack was the start of our Dublin experience and it was a wonderful way to discover such a beautiful city. Jack was incredibly knowledgeable, his tour included many interesting stop offs where we heard tales which were told with humour, warmth and compassion. I was in awe of Jack’s knowledge and how he could recall so much information. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Dublin, it was a very memorable, interesting and fun evening.

Jack is a fierce craic! His knowledge & insight is well resourced & researched & he knows things only a local would know. I learnt an enormous amount about the country of my forebears & I will no longer be a stranger to Dublin or the country that gave me life & the creative juices that flow through me. Thanks Captain & cousin Jack for the craic, in the words of Arnie, I will be back!

recommended if you are in Dublin, its quite informational trip and theres a lot of Dublin history out there and it all comes alive when Jack briefs about it. Loved the explanations and time especially the Molly Malone briefs.
