Meet your Stroller

Jason

Hi! My name is Jason and I'm a Stroller here in Dublin's fair city. Between studying at our world famous Trinity College and being heavily involved in our thriving startup scene in Dublin, I have a unique perspective on both life in the city and how Dublin is establishing itself as a centre for tech, and business innovation. And I'm delighted to share that perspective with you on this stroll, with lots of fun along the way!

    We travel a lot (Ireland is our 50th country visited), take a lot of guided tours and rarely write a review. Jason gave us an exceptional tour of Dublin with just the right mix of facts, anecdotes, history and wit. Highly recommend Stroll walking tour of Dublin!

    We got Carl as our tour guide and I can't recommend him enough. He really showed us a great time and we deep-dived into the Irish pub literary scene. Every place we visited he had an amazing story to it and even though I've lived here for over 14 years, I had never visited (much less knew the history either) any of the pubs on his list! And I have to commend his knowledge of folklore and hidden spots in the city to accompany his talks. If you are a book nut or even just want to know and understand the great history of literature that runs deep through Dublin, Carl and Stroll Walking are your best bet!

    Wonderful tour with Jason. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He combined a thorough explanation and exploration of the major historical sites with anecdotes about contemporary Dublin culture. It was a terrific experience. Would highly recommend him.

    Fantastic! Jason was entertaining, knowledgeable and a pleasure to walk around Dublin with. Thanks for the history lesson and the memorable stories. He even tailored the tour to end up close to where our next adventure was to start. Thanks Jason.

    My wife and I had a great Capital stories tour of Dublin. Our guide was Tim. He was very knowledgeable about Dublin and all the sites we visited. Tim also plays a mean Irish concertina, has a great voice and some good props. We spent 3 hours with Tim which was great, he was also interested in us and our country. If you are in Dublin book a tour with Tim, we highly recommend it.

    Maitiu was excellent on every front; well informed, flexible and amusing, only wish he sung more! Got to see the major landmarks in Dublin and gained valuable insights into the Irish psyche and struggle for independence, which perfectly complimented our trip around Kilmainham gaol. We all thank Maitiu once again for his intelligent and insightful tour.

    I book this tour for my family from California and they were very happy with the guide - Ciaran. The walk included a lot of great stories and let them feel the vibe of the city - it was truly great experience! And they learn a lot about history and architecture of the city.Communication about all logistics was smooth and effective. I highly recommend the tour and Ciaran!

    I had a wonderful experience with this group. Maitiu had people singing and answering questions about Dublin, which was fun to have everyone involved. I would highly recommend!

    Joined in on Maitius walking tour of Dublin. Maitiu has a great talent for getting everyone involved with the tour - between acting out the history of Dublin to singing folksongs, there isn't a dull moment! Plus he's multilingual. Great tour, I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Dublin.

    Maitiú brought us through Dublin, telling stories, singing and bringing it all to life, he even had us acting out scenarios from history on the streets. Great way to see Dublin.

    We had Maitiu during our time in Dublin, extremely knowledgable and passionate about Dublin and its legends. Maitiu even taught us some Irish folk songs and I got to sing with him call and response.
