Dublin Decoded – city walks, with art, architecture and history combined.


Dublin Decoded leads historical and architectural walking tours through the streets, squares and alleys of Ireland’s capital.  With a traditional strength in art and architectural history, our tours are particularly popular with people interested in visual and material culture, as well as those keen on history and urban exploration.  Reading and interpreting the clues of the city – from street names, topography, inscriptions or allegorical sculpture on buildings, then decoding that information for you- via the history 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 and everything else from underground rivers to underground societies.

We lead public and private tours;  public tours run twice a month and appear in our monthly newsletters.  Private tours are ordered by you, for you and cost from €180 for =your group.   Please choose public or private tours, from the extensive menus above,  to access all the information you need.   We look forward to welcoming you on tour.
