It is such a nice way to learn about the city you are visiting! We were two friends and we were paired with a Dubliner! We went to take a beer for a bit more than 2hours! (I think the length really depends on how many questions you have and if the conversation flows easily!). It was great to be... More

We had a great visit with Joe through City of a Thousand Welcomes. We met at the museum and walked down Grafton Street to a Pub to get a pint together. I loved hearing about Dublin from a local that obviously loved his city. He had great ideas and suggestions for us on our time in the city as well... More

We visited Dublin in May 2015. We saw this opportunity via the Internet and thought it was a nice idea. We met our local ambassador Brian and he took us for tea at the Merrion Hotel. Brian is a wonderful ambassador for Dublin city and we so enjoyed meeting him. Brian was a wealth of information and wisdom and a... More

This is a brilliant idea to organise meetings with locals. How else can one get to know Ireland from the inside if not by having a conversation with a local? A very noteworthy thing is that ambassadors are picked according to your sphere of interests. You can choose between going to a pub or to a cafe to have a... More

I wish more cities offered a service like this! My ambassador took me to The Cellar bar at a fancy hotel, and we each had a pint of beer. We spent a couple of hours there, where he shared some sightseeing ideas and answered any questions I had. For a solo travel (who's a bit on an introvert), this was... More

A small taste of the real Dublin. I think we came across the idea whilst researching our trip on Tripadvisor. We went as a couple and although it isn't clear from their website, that's fine, and Joe, our friendly guide and companion said families also book occasionally. We met Joe at reception after a short visit to the Little Museum... More

Booked this meeting online, having found them through the Irish Tourist Board. They are based in The Little Museum at St Stephens Green and you are taken for either a drink in the Porterhouse, which brews its own beer and stout, or the Merrion Hotel for sandwiches and tea/coffee. We went to the Porterhouse. The gentleman who we met was... More

we met our welcomer David at the museum and he took us to the Merrion for tea. You could tell he really loves Dublin and we talked for over an hour. The one thing I would suggest though is to have a list of what you are interested in so the welcomer can answer your questions; where we were on... More

We were met at "The Little Museum of Dublin" by our ambassador Joe, who walked us to The Porterhouse bar and over a couple of free pints told us all about Dublin, what to do and what to see. He also told us about himself and was interested in our lives too. A great start to our Dublin weekend for... More
