Ralph

I am a native Dubliner, with a great love of the culture and history of the city. Having completed Cultural & Heritage studies and Tour Management Studies I received my qualification from Fáilte Ireland (Ireland's National Tourism Body). I have been working as a tour guide since 2015 specializing in the Viking and Medieval history of Dublin City. I have worked in cultural institutions such as the National Concert Hall, Dublinia (the Viking and Medieval Heritage center) and St. Patrick's Cathedral. I have a deep knowledge of the everyday life of Viking and Medieval Dublin and conduct private tours of Viking and Medieval Dublin and St. Patrick's Cathedral. I also give talks on the street names of Medieval Dublin.

What's included

Equipment
I will show maps and images of Viking and Medieval Dublin for comparison with the modern city.
