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.
Like many Dubliners I was "raised on songs and stories", but unlike many, I sang songs myself and gave rise to a few stories over the years. A music fanatic firstly, and a lover of cool stuff generally, my life has always been right at the centre of what Dublin does best: great music, great craic, and plenty of great eating and drinking. A musician, a radio DJ, and most recently a music filmmaker, like others in the arts-world I 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 current cool stuff.
A drink for everyone - a glass of Guinness at the end of the tour.

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.
