Dublin streets are stepped in history. In a city that dates back to the Vikings, it is a wonderful mix of old and new. Watch out for some incredible street art and if we are lucky, we may even meet a busker along the way. Join us as we wander through the Creative Quarter, cross the most famous river in Dublin and end up outside the most iconic building still standing in the city today.
Hazel loves exploring and regaling people with stories and giving a glimpse into the city known for its love of cheeky rhymes and ballads. Her background is in the travel and tourism industry in Ireland, and she has juggled roles ranging from tutor to travel agent. Travelling has always been in her blood. Hazel’s grandfather was a driver-guide, and her interest in becoming a guide started almost a decade ago when she took a group of excited students on a walking tour of Dublin, captivating them with the city’s culture. Since then, there has been no turning back. With her tours, you might find yourself mingling with the locals, who love to get involved with the tour! With a dash of surprise, Hazel loves entertaining people with fun stories and experiences. “An unforgettable experience that I had was when myself and a friend got chatting with a well-known Irish author and we ended up back at his house cooking spaghetti Bolognese!” she says. She is the owner of Virtually Irish, a new and exciting venture showcasing the best of what Ireland has to offer.
Hazel has been guiding since Oct 2019

It brought back very pleasant memories. I lived in Dublin from 1935 to 1943 (Rathmines) aged 8 to 16 years and visited the city again in 1948 and also 1953, which was the last time I visited Ireland. That year I did the Grand Tour visiting Dublin of course and included a round trip of 800 miles visiting Athlone, Galway, Kerry and Cork. My school friend from Dublin was Driver and I was Navigator! What I would to know is when I was in Dublin in 1953, I remember a Cinema there which was also a Theatre! I believe situated in or near D'Olier Street just to the north of Trinity College. Surely it is not still there, after all this time. I seem to remember ON STAGE in 1953, Laurel & Hardy. Coincidentally, I recently saw on TV a movie (I believe called Stan & Ollie) about their tour in Britain and Ireland. The singing cowboy, Gene Autry WITH his horse also appeared there on stage.

Hazel made my visit to Dublin, REAL. I so enjoyed her voice, her explanations of places that were visited on the tour. She is a gem. Thank you so much.
