Great way to see and taste Dublin
Eric_H, Sept 2023
This was a great first day way to learn about Dublin City Center. We toured many historic sites with great information from Ann, our guide. She was perfect in leading us through the City, generous with her time and a great host. Happily recommend this tour to anyone new to Dublin!
Walking food tour with secret main in Dublin - Do it! You'll thank me.
William_S, Sept 2023
It was much more than what I was expecting. I was prepared for a walk to different places to eat, and the food, and that was all. What I got was a proper walking tour of Dublin, with history, insights, and tips, as well as the food. The group was intentionally small, so we could ask lots of questions, and i left not only full and smarter, but with the directions to get to the next place on my list. Well worth doing and highly recommended

Fun Times Discovering Dublin
JJ_S, Sept 2023
This was one of my first major activities on my Dublin Trip, and my first tour with this outfit, apparently in approximately 60 cities including Belfast, which I participated in only a few days after this. The meeting place was the Grattan Statue in the fray of midday Dublin traffic and commerce. The tour guide Ciaran R. was immediately welcoming, with a distinct and engaging Scotch-Irish drawl, and the group was nicely Euro diverse with a balance of American, Dutch, German, and someone of South African descent to tie things full-circle. The first part of the adventure took us towards the Liffey, which we shortly crossed to the North side, with the obligatory history, introductions to the area, and some local humour mixed in. This honestly was a bit of a slow start to what would come after, and though our guide was a champion of keeping things lively and in motion, my honest thoughts are that the place we would soon enter to start the food tour would be better suited as an endcap to the agenda, or maybe even relegated to an exclusively North Side version of Dublin eats. To be more specific the place was exceedingly tight, and somewhat underwhelming as a start. The next three stops definitely would improve upon this, and with the exception of the outstanding fish and chips lacking a dedicated area to sit and enjoy fully (we had to carry it to the nearby church courtyard amidst the midday chaos and with a slight rain surprise), the amount of food and conversation was sufficient throughout despite the few number of total places. The pub we visited after this was the pinnacle of the experience, and the final place which had excellent ice cream was a nice way to finish, more or less where we had met initially. Long story short, this was an encouraging catalyst for more Secret Food Tours in the future, that could itself use some slight tweaking in agenda and maybe an extra stop or two.
Response from Host, Sept 2023

We constantly review our itineraries to ensure the best possible experience for our guests, and your input will help us in this regard. We're thrilled that your experience served as an encouraging catalyst for future Secret Food Tours, and we'd love to have you join us again.

Entertaining and delicious tour
Arleen_F, Sept 2023
Our guide, Cieron (not sure if I have the spelling correct), was fantastic. He definitely has the gift for doing the job and making it very entertaining. Might have only been a 4 rating without him.

Such fun & great value!
Emma_A, Aug 2023
We had a fantastic time on our food tour of Dublin. We enjoyed lamb stew, a pint of a beer of our choosing, a taste of guiness, fish and chips, potato cakes, and ice cream. Shannon was a great tour guide - she told us about historical and cultural happenings around Dublin while allowing us plenty of time to eat. We found this your to be great value - lunch + dessert and a general walking tour all in one.

Food & stories- the perfect mix !
debnanda_c, Aug 2023
It is infrequent that we go for group tours, however, this time we're glad we did. This tour checked all boxes, authentic food, and genuine stories about real places in Dublin- with our lovely guide Ann (Tomlin) who kept the walk fun and exciting. She even shared good recommendations on places to visit around Dublin, and recipes to try at home. A little piece of Ireland that I brought back with me to share with friends & family.
