Public Walking Tours:
Unlike most larger, walking tour companies we do not host regular, scheduled public tours. We prefer to keep things small, to avoid routine, and we never work off a script.
We lead from 1 to 4 public tours each month but there’s no repeating schedule or cycle of tours which means tour- routes and dates all change, each month. These public Dublin Decoded tours are primarily aimed at Irish or at Dublin based guests, and showcase less obvious, or more overlooked parts of the city. However everybody is very welcome to attend. However, as we run relatively few public tours , and as dates are only decided a 2- 4 weeks in advance, many guests coming to Ireland prefer to order their own private walking tours.
Tickets for upcoming Public Tours (those scheduled at the time of reading) should appear directly below. But remember we only schedule about 3-4 weeks ahead at any time. Therefore to hear about, and join in future public walking tours, your best option, by far, is to subscribe to our handy free monthly mailshot / e-newsletter. (We use MailChimp a reputable firm, who will never share your data and it is easy to unsubscribe any time) To sign up for the newsletter go here. Otherwise see our public scheduled tours below, as they are currently scheduled. Please do not use the Private form contact form to ask queries about public tours. Thank you.

But as there are only 1-3 tours per month, and as tours are only decided 5- 14 days in advance, many many visitors from overseas prefer to order their own private walking tour, o the route and date of youyr choice. Please see the link here to order your own private walking tours.
Please note the contact form page on the private tour pages is for use regarding private tour inquiries only.
If you wish to attend public tours: if you’re traveling to Ireland there may well be a public tour – like the ones listed above- that will (eventually) be scheduled for during the time of your visit. Everyone is welcome to participate. Please note our public tours are on different and diverse topics each month, and varying dates . Tickets typically €17 -€23 p/p. Please note we unfortunately can not answer email queries about public tours. All information on upcoming public tours is available via our monthly newsletter, and via our tour listings on Eventbrite, and finally any scheduled at the time of reading will appear above on this page. If none appear it is because none are scheduled, or none have yet been scheduled.
