Homeless Walking Tour of the Liberties

Guided tour

About this experience

Secret Street Tours is a nonprofit social enterprise that trains those affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their neighbourhoods​,​ empowering them with skills and a platform to tell their story. With this experience​,​ we'll take you on a journey through time of one of Dublin’s most vibrant and colourful neighbourhoods​,​ the Liberties (where your guide​,​ Derek​,​ has lived all his life). We’ll begin our tour in the Dubh Linn Garden (Located just behind Dublin Castle). As you explore the rich history of the area​,​ local folklore and hidden gems​,​ Derek will share with you stories of growing up in the Liberties​,​ his experiences of homelessness​,​ the passions that helped him through his lowest points and his hopes for the future. We’ll wrap up our tour approximately 90 minutes later near St Patricks’s Tower​,​ a great place for you to continue your day and explore more of Dublin’s many attractions.
