About the tour

Ballsbridge is considered to be Dublin's most affluent neighbourhood with a beautiful village where embassies and offices sit alongside upscale boutiques and bistros, its home to the famous RDS arena where major sporting and music events take place. Leafy paths line the River Dodder, and there's a trail of native trees through Herbert Park. Ballsbridge is located in the D4 area of Dublin and has the most expensive real estate anywhere in the County.


Meet your local guide

Dave

Dave is a native of Dublin and has worked as a tour guide in Dublin for the last 2 years, his previous profession was in sales and marketing and he certainly has the gift of the gab. He lived in the U.S for 25 years and on his return to Dublin he found that there was a lot about his City that was previously unknown to him, so he set about getting reacquainted with all things Dublin, it's culture, history and it's people along with all its famous landmarks. Dave's passion is tour guiding and showing off Dublin's fair City to visitors. He is the owner of Dublin Rogues Tour a walking tour set in Merrion Square, Dublin showcasing Irish writers, artists, politicians, rebels and freedom fighters.

Dave has been guiding since Aug 2019
