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 landscape, streetscape, and buildings of the city, to bring its history to life.

Really interesting tours given by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The Portobello and Rathmines tours were very entertaining and informative covering history, literary history, architecture and local lore.

Aaron Henderson was so knowledgable that I enjoyed every minute of this tour! Fascinating information about the medieval walls of Dublin. We walked the walls and followed their path even through modern buildings. Definitely worth doing!

In a group of about 10 people, Arran guided us along what would have been the perimeter of Dublin City’s walls. Throughout the walk he pointed out remaining elements, historical notes, and insights. An educational & interesting 2 hour walk!
