Hello, I am Ruth from Walk Dublin. I love our City of Dublin where I was born and raised and I am fascinated by its history. My aim is to share this passion of Dublin’s delights and make your tour a truly unique experience.
Walk Dublin was established in 2017 to give themed tours for small groups where you will enjoy and explore the most historic, cultural and original elements of our fair City. I have created many bespoke tours designed around visitor’s specific interests. These have included singers who sang through the historic and picturesque sights; fans of literature have read passages from their favourite books at locations where events happened and whiskey enthusiasts who visited small distilleries and many, many more.
My interests are history, architecture, coffee and tea. It is such a pleasure is to meet new people, share each tour’s unique aspects with you and see how much you enjoy yourselves.Walking Tours
Ruth has the profound knowledge, the experience, and an unquestionable love for her home city - the hallmark ingredients of a great tour guide. 3 hours flew by like 10 minutes and I knew that the answer she provided to each of my questions could have been 20 minutes longer :) I recommend Walk Dublin to anyone, who wants to learn about Ireland's capital, its people, history and the present. Profound gratitude and best wishes of success!
What a wonderful experience! I took Ruth's Coffee History tour with the tasting experience with some friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Hearing about Dublin's coffee houses in the 1700's was enlightening and Ruth delighted with funny anecdotes about the characters of the time. I found out some really interesting facts about Dublin and Ruth took lots of time to answer questions. But the real highlight was the coffee tasting after. Ruth provided treats (gorgeous homemade chocolates) along with several coffee in the beautiful setting of Reads, which is the oldest shop in Dublin. All in all a gorgeous experience and highly recommended.
Premier tour sous le soleil Fantastique sensation d'une ville parée de touches colorées, Un deuxième tour, Dublin intime, Impression vivace d'un ici et maintenant passé. Ruth, avec grâce, nous plonge dans des histoires d'une culture commune et singulière de sa ville. Une narratrice expressive et généreuse que je vous recommande. Thanks Ruth!
We had such a lovely experience with Ruth … her gentle easy manner imparts endless knowledge of our ancient city . Thank you Ruth but thank you for your professionalism in dealing with a pre Covid booking two years later ! Class!
Very interesting tour, we had a lot of fun with the swordfighting! Also took us to parts of Dublin we had not seen before
A walk through Dublin with Ruth turns a casual stroll into a rich and rewarding adventure. Her encyclopedic knowledge and enthusiasm conjures up Vikings, grand Georgian soirées, passionate revolutionaries, and eloquent writers, all whirling about in this “seat of Western civilization”. After a journey with Ruth, you will never see Dublin in the same way!
My vision is to share this passion of Dublin’s delights and make your tour a truly unique experience. I have been working for over ten years as a tour guide on OPW (Official Government) tourist sites such as Phoenix Park, Farmleigh House and Castletown House. I have also worked for City Sightseeing Tours where I gave bus and coach tours of Dublin, Wicklow, Malahide Castle and Howth. On Cruise Ship Tours I have guided people to the Book of Kells, Dublin Castle, private tours, St Patrick’s Cathedral and Celtic Nights out.
Prior to this I have explored many cities, strolled the streets to seek out hidden delights to share with friends. It gave me a love of learning and a certainty that guiding was the career for me.Read FAQ
