My name is Joe Darcy and I would be delighted to be your guide on your private walking tour of Dublin, my home town.  I am one of Rick Steves’ go-to guides in Dublin and also manage tours around Ireland for Rick Steves.

However, my speciality and what I love to do more than anything else is a personal, private walking tour of Dublin city centre.

I am a qualified Dublin Tour Guide having gained a distinction in the intensive course run by Fáilte Ireland, the Irish National Tourism Development Authority, in April 2009.  I have also done some promotional work for them: view Tourism Ireland video here.

I am a member of AGTI, the Association of  Tour Guides of Ireland.

Darcy’s Dublin Walks was established in 2009 to offer exclusive, private Dublin walking tours  to smaller groups of people.  By focusing on smaller groups, I can make sure that you get the tour you want, you set the pace of your tour, you hear everything the guide is saying and you can ask as many questions as you like!

I would love to show you the sights, sounds and stories of my home town of Dublin.

In 2010 I took part in a campaign for Tourism Ireland to promote some of the well-known sights as well as some hidden gems in Dublin city centre.
