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

Enjoyed the walk and chat. I really like your delivery, style and engagement, Dave, well done (I'm one of Dave Barry's latest crop, BTW). However, two care points: 1. I know a bit about the incinerator and water treatment plants in Poolbeg, and suggest a little research would clarify what's what in that area for you. 2. (very minor point) I'd have remarked more on the contrasting architecture around Sandymount Green (e.g. beautiful pharmacy (which you mentioned) vs dull, inelegant AIB building) in the way you did so well on the coast road and in walking to the green. Overall, very well done
