What you'll do

We will stroll the fabled streets of my fair city and visit some iconic music locations - where the magic that is Dublin 'ceol agus craic' (Irish for music and fun), was first created.

We will walk in the footsteps of famous Irish musicians and artists, and make note of some really great bars, restaurants, clubs and shops along the way. I will curate the guided tour to each group's interests while paying special attention to 'off the beaten track' hidden gems of the city.

You will hear the stories behind the world-renowned Irish musicians that you love and maybe even be introduced to a few new 'ones to watch'. We will visit three important music locations: Grafton Street, Temple Bar and Smithfield - and you never know who we might meet along the way!

We will finish the tour with a drink in one of the best music pubs in Dublin. There will be stories, music, singing and lots of craic.
Other things to note
We will be walking across the city for 1-2 hours, so good mobility is essential. I do need to implement a minimum group size of two people, so will have to reschedule/cancel with 24hrs notice if only one person books a tour.

Like many Dubliners I was "raised on songs and stories", and I also sang songs myself and gave rise to a few stories over the years.
I am deeply passionate about Irish music and culture and my life has always been centred around what Dublin does best: great music, great craic, and plenty of great eating and drinking. A musician, a radio DJ, and a filmmaker, like others in the arts-world I have also worked in pubs, clubs, bars, and restaurants. My curated Dublin Experience is a tour of Dublin's rich musical history and a select taste of its current cool stuff.

Where you'll be

We will visit iconic locations on Grafton Street and Temple Bar, where I will regale you with stories about world famous Dublin rock musicians, you will even hear stories about some of these musicians whom I have worked with over the years. We will also pass by some of my very favourite foodie locations, and late-night 'hot-spots', and then finish the tour with a drink together in Smithfield, at one of the best 'off the beaten track' music pubs.

Rated 4.81 out of 5 from 53 reviews.

Wir hatten einen tollen Nachmittag mit Nial! Er hat uns mit sehr vielen Fakten zu der irischen Musikgeschichte versorgt und uns nebenbei auch noch viele weitere Tipps für unsere kommenden Tage in Dublin gegeben. Wir würden die Tour jederzeit wieder buchen!

Superb, high-quality and personalized tour. You’ll feel like a local within 10 minutes. Our fifteen-year old loves music. Niall helped him and the rest of us enhance our knowledge of local music and introduced us to hidden gems in Dublin. We found a new friend after touring with Niall.

The tour was set at an easy, relaxed pace. Plenty of time for questions and sharing experiences with Niall and the other guests on tour. I definitely learned things I did not know and the information was all relative to the places we were seeing and experiencing. What I liked most is that in the group, we made up fans of all different musical genres, but we all related to the stories of the Irish music culture. I would reccomend this tour to those that love music- any and all music as you will come away from it with a deeper appreciation of how influences spread throughout the world.

NIALL was a very knowledgeable and friendly host who had inside connections through his film making to some of the musical sites and stories of Dublin. Great to walk around with a local who is passionate about music. Best of luck in your future endeavours Niall.
