A free walking tour of Dublin which is full of life & energy but with a nice laid back tempo. The tour guides are all young local Dubliners and deliver their extensive knowledge very effectively in a fun, thought-provoking and imagination-stirring way with a personal, comfortable style. They are happy to take questions, ask questions, chat and actively get you involved in the experience.They also have very good hints and local knowledge so make sure to pick their brains for local tips. Tour group sizes are well balanced, making for easy interaction with other travellers as well as the guides themselves and a pub break along the way is a nice touch.The distance covered is easily manageable and there isn’t too much walking between actual stops so the pace is relatively relaxed and the route includes lesser-known Dublin titbits as well as well-known sites such as Dublin castle and Christchurch cathedral. This free tour is an ideal way to get orientated with Dublin city centre, key locations and things which may peak your own particular interests. All in all, we highly recommend the free tour of Dublin by HostelCulture as a really worthwhile way to discover Dublin, its history, culture, stories and characters in a memorable and enjoyable way.

We had a great time on Ollie's tour. He was funny, entertaining and informative. It was the perfect way to see the most of Dublin!
The Central bank is located on Dame Street, one of the main streets in Dublin, so if you are staying in the city centre the best way to get here is by foot. Please note that we are NOT located at the Bank of Ireland close to Trinity College. The Central Bank is 1-2 mins walk from Trinity College, The Ha’penny Bridge & Dublin Castle in the very centre of the City. See the map above for it’s location.
Dubliners are very friendly people so they’ll be glad to give you directions. The Square at the Central Bank is a relatively spacious public area and once you are there you will see our guides in blue HostelCulture T-shirts and holding blue HostelCulture Free Tour umbrellas.
