About Dublin Decoded
Guided Dublin History and Architectural walking tours from Arran Henderson, historian and Art/ architectural historian from radio & from the old Hidden Dublin column. Both scheduled public tours, 3-6 times a month and (our specialty) pre-booked private tours for your own group, large or small. Corporate and other events also handled. Our walks includes private art tours of the National Gallery of Ireland; walks of Temple Bar, and the extraordinary Liberties district, as well as the south and south-central areas of the city centre, Capel St area, O'Connell St and Parnell Sq; the fascinating, little-visited Grangegorman area, and much more. Themes include Penal and Revolutionary history, social and political change, movements in art and architecture and many insights into Dublin from medieval times to Victorian, Georgian and the Modern eras. As our name suggests, we are passionate about reading the streetscape and buildings of the city, to "decode' and bring its history to life!

Arran is an excellent guide, welcoming, relaxed and witty but very serious and well informed about his subject. The walk was around an area I know well in Dublin 8 but he was able to make me see it though new eyes and I learned a huge amount about a place where I have lived for almost 50 years. I would be very keen to go on any future tours and if you get the opportunity to join them, don't miss them. I have no reservations in recommending these walks. First class!!

We did the medieval walls tour yesterday and really enjoyed it. Aaron is an enthused and engaging guide and makes you see Dublin in a whole different light.

I thought I knew dublin, but our guide brought us to places i had never seen. A great incite into how dublin city grew,and the importance of the medieval walls. Our guide provided lots of interesting information, and enough history to make me go home and look up some more.

Arran really gets « under the skin » of a city - with funny details like entertainment of a bygone age including acts such as gold-trimmed dancing fleas (really)! Plus they’re a great way to meet like-minded people - many of whom bring additional insights to the tours. So well worth it for visitors to Dublin!
