Patrick took us on a ramble around Merrion Square a Georgian bastion in Dublin City centre .... This was never going to be your " ordinary " waking tour and that became all the more apparent to the gathered stalwarts on this damp overcast November morning when Patrick promised us tales of Naked Nymphs, Hidden Headstone in a Georgian Garden...

Do you know the origin of Jacob's "Mikado" biscuits? Or what Twitter and the Independent Women Worker's Union have in common? Take this 2 hour tour to learn about a range of powerful women who played an important role in Dublin's labour history and more. Starting at the old Jacob's Biscuit factory, stroll though city centre Dublin, Trinity College, narrow... More

Did you know that there is a bomb shelter underneath Merrion Sq? Or that Hans Sloane basically invented the chocolate that we know today? No... well you should definitely join one of the tours that ingenious walking tours organise. I went along to the "The Irish ideas & inventions that changed the world" as part of The Festival of Curiosity.... More

A highly entertaining historical tour - with a difference. It's the story of Dublin told through the stones that built it. There's a saying "if the walls could speak ... " etc, well this tour nearly made the stones sing. Clever, witty, informative, ingenious. I have done several walking tours of Dublin and this was streets (yes) ahead of any... More

Went on the Blood and Guts walking tour of Dublin with my boyfriend. We both really enjoyed it, learned lots of new things about our city and had a great time!

We had a specialized tour, on behalf of the Eurocon (European Science Fiction Convention): in addition to the regular geekiness, we had a side-dish of Gothic horror :) The guide was knowledgeable, funny, and a great story-teller. He took us to rather surprising sights just behind the corner from the larger stories you get in the regular guided tours. We... More

This tour was informative and fun. We started at the oldest part of Dublin and walked through the city and through history, all with a geology twist. Our guide was professional and really knew his stuff. Loved it and will book another one of their tours.

Signed up for the Dublin tour about Ireland contributions to science and was positively surprized by how professional and knowledgeable the guide was (an actual Irish scientist with the traditional talent for story telling). Will probably go for another of their tour.

I have been meaning to sign up for ages, and jumped at the chance to go on the "Ingenious Dublin! Networking walk with a geeky twist, and (optional) lunch" in March early this year. The day was soft (Irish misty rain) but it was an enjoyable day, everyone learnt a lot. I won't spoil anything here, just enjoy the tour.... More
