What is a Free Tour?
Led by experienced, qualified and local freelance guides, this is an amazing way to experience and bring to life the history, culture, and life of real Dublin. Experience Dublin through the eyes of a local expert who has crafted their own tour, unique to them.
The tour takes around 2.5 hours, covering the most important sites in the city.
Guides working with Unearthed believe in providing the highest quality tours, leaving you with lasting memories and memorable stories of your time here. They have a passion not only for Dublin, but for sharing a unique experience with guests.
We work alongside some of Ireland's most experienced and highly rated guides to provide a Free Tour of Dublin on a tips-only basis. Your guide is not paid by the city or any business to deliver these quality tours.
Your guide will happily accept any tips/donations based on the quality of their work.
