8. Dublin: 3-Hour Explore w/ a Local at Christmas
Get into the festive spirit and share some good cheer with the locals as you explore Dublin’s best loved Christmas spots. Soak up the atmosphere as you wander through the city, seeing the most spectacular lights and browsing the Christmas market, and of course, warming up with a hot chocolate or mulled wine.
Discover where the best spots in the city are to hear local musicians busking, visit the annual (and unusual) Nativity scene at a famous church and do some Christmas shopping as you stroll around Dublin’s character packed city center. You’ll be in the Christmas spirit in no time.
Join a like-minded local to discover the most festive parts of the city, strolling through the beautiful cobbled streets and along the canals while they’re draped with magical Christmas lights. Your host will show you where the best Christmas lights in the city are, and share festive traditions with you so you can discover what Christmas is really like for the locals.
Stroll between the stalls at a Christmas market and warm up with a mulled wine or hot chocolate, indulge in some festive treats and maybe pick up some gifts to take home. See the famous Moving Crib Nativity at St. Martin Apostolate’s Church, a moving Nativity that’s a well-loved local Christmas tradition.
Your local will take you to the streets where local musicians busk, often for charity and enjoy the good cheer and festive atmosphere, maybe heading to a local pub to enjoy a drink with your local afterwards.
Curious travelers will be connected to locals who are interesting and sociable people, who know the city well and who love to share their favorite places. They are not tour guides by profession.
You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them.
Recreate the feeling of having a friend in every city you visit; someone who can show you the places you’ll fall in love with and help you to connect with the most authentic soul of a place.
Book this meet-up and the local team will contact you within 24-hours and ask you questions about your preferences and interests, so they can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded local Dubliner.
Keeping in mind your personal answers, your local host will put together a bespoke itinerary just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. Your host will arrange the most convenient meeting place for you.
If you feel like changing direction during the meet-up, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, they will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary.
