Dublin Decoded – city walks, art, architecture, history.

Dublin Decoded lead historical and architectural walking tours through the streets and squares of Ireland’s capital.  With a key strength in art and architectural history, our tours are especially popular with visitors and guests keen on visual and material culture, as well as lovers of history and urban exploration.  Reading and interpreting clues of the city – from street names and topography, from inscriptions to allegorical sculpture on buildings, then decoding it all for you via the history and context that brought it about,  is what we do best.

Our tours contain information on social history, political, industrial, manufacturing and economic history, legal and military history, women’s history, art and architectural history.  Everything from underground rivers to underground societies.

We lead private and public tours.  Public tours run just 1 to 3 times a month and there is no regular cycle or schedule.  Events change all the time and each month and they appear in our monthly newsletter and on our public tours page.  Private tours are different, they are ordered by you, for you.  Prices for public tours from €16.50 per person.  Prices for private tours from €180- €250 for your group.  Corporate groups and/or very large goups may cost more. Please submit a booking request for an exact quote.

Please choose either public or private tours from the extensive menus of routes – Northside, South side and Art tours- to access all the information you need.   There is a private tour contact form below, and at the foot of every page.

We look forward to welcoming you on tour.
