About Hidden Dublin Tours
With Hidden Dublin Tours, reveal the dark mysteries and histories across a variety of historical periods and unique sightseeing locations frequented only by us.
We focus on the characters, and CUSTOM BUILD our tour buses - that's why we are different!
Our Dublin Tours do not focus on dry history and historical analysis of architecture. This city has produced some quite astounding characters and stories across the centuries. Stories of the cheekier characters from history are always the stories that people remember and take away with them, we know this! We try to evoke what life must have been like by placing these people and events in their time frames, helping the visitor gain an insight into the mentality and "craic" of the day.
Our Bus and Walking tours are interactive, and our guides equipped with visuals to help evoke life as it was. You won't hear our stories anywhere else!
