We had a wonderful morning with Aurora exploring Dublin! She was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and her excitement for the city was contagious. Our children loved the stories she shared of Dublin’s history and how the art reflects the culture of the city. Thank you so much!

A very enjoyable, relaxing and pleasant 3 hours with Aurora, as she weaves through the lesser known and well known parts of the city, describing selected artworks and their context within the city, as well as touching on the history of Dublin too.
Aurora is personable and friendly, and has put together a good route for the first time visitor like myself.
This experience definitely enhanced my trip to Dublin.
