Do the legendary Dublin City Walking Tour with Dublin’s most entertaining tour guide, Wally Blue
Wally Blue (aka Les Byrne), is a Dublin wit, professional photographer and experienced tour guide who will give you a hilarious day to remember!
There are several tours available from Wally Blue depending on the time of year, and each will take you to the ‘real Dublin’ with genuine Dublin tales, and side splitting stories that will have you in hysterics.
There are numerous tour guide companies in Dublin that explore the usual Dublin City landmarks, but only Wally Blue will incorporate the real Dublin and recall characters he knew or met as he grew up in Dublin. – Dave the Wave
Ask Wally to tell you about Arthur Fields and the book called the Man on the Bridge! Hear the true story about who blew up Nelsons Pillar in O’Connell Street, learn of the escapades of his late uncle Sir Batwick of Norfolk, and celebrate the crazy tales of ‘Bang Bang’ the eccentric Dublin character famed for staging mock shoot-outs on Dublin city trams with unsuspecting passengers in the 1950s and 60s! Johnny Forty Coats is as real, he says, as himself!
Even Dubliners book on this tour just to hear Wally’s stories, told in a way that only he can deliver them. – Eoin O’Leary
Les Byrne grew up on the north side of Dublin and worked for the Sunday Tribune newspaper alongside many characters including Dermot Morgan (the late great actor, best known for playing Father Ted). They shared back then the same humour and mad sense of fun, and this will be very apparent whichever of the tours that you choose to take with Wally.
The ultimate aim of Wally Blue Tours is to ensure your day is fun! So while you get to see some of the famous spots, the laughs will be memorable as it will also be filled with the famous ‘craic agus ceol’ all the way. Wally will be taking photo shots of the high points of your tour that you can download on your return home. Plus your own web page!
