Dublin’s Docklands has been transformed into Europe’s premier digital hub. Google, Facebook, AirBnB are simply a few of the international tech giants, alongside the growing startup culture that it has inspired, in this compact historic area of Dublin. Some of those historic remnants, like Boland’s Mill and its role in the 1916 Easter Rising, still stand, along with the stories it holds inside. However, it must never be forgotten that technology is simply a gateway to connect us. Connecting you with your self-confessed tech-geek Stroller, Carl, he will share some of the numerous tales that have gone into the creation and ever-increasing expansion of this small but unique slice of the tech world that even most locals do not know about. MEETING POINT is right outside the doors of the Marker Hotel in Grand Canal Square. Look out for the orange Stroll backpack!
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, innovation, and the best place in the world to do business. And I'm delighted to share that perspective with you on our Stroll, with lots of fun along the way!
We really enjoyed the Silicon Dublin tour with Carl. He is very well prepared and can add lots of inside knowledge. Well worth it.
We work often with Stroll Tours and it is always a guarantee of success. I recently had a Spanish group with them and they had the best time. The guide knew exactly how to engage with guests and his level of Spanish was very good. Highly recommended.
I felt privileged to enjoy the Silicon Valley of Europe tour with Jason. It was educational, entertaining and very enjoyable and I would highly recommend both Jason and the tour. I have lived in Dublin for 17 years (originally from New Zealand) so it was great to get to hear stories of places I have visited in that time. Thanks very much!
We have had a great time with Carl. He guided us full of energy and enthusiasm and enriched us with his knowledge. Many thanks.
We had a very knowledgeable tour guide in Carl for a corporate event with 40 people. The tailored tour allowed us to fit in a relaxing enjoyable experience in the limited available time providing a great cultural snippet to our overseas visitors. Would highly recommend this company.
Fantastic overview of Dublin's tech scene, highly recommended if you are looking for a different perspective on Dublin, different from usual history tours...
Found out about this tour on the newspaper, glad I went, it was inspiring.Thanks Carl, highly recommended. :)
Just finished the 'Silicon Valley of Europe' tour, a very interesting part of Dublin, thanks Carl for such great tour of the silicon docks, we weren't expecting so many companies in such small space!
Great experience, really cool seeing all the important headquarters of all the big companies that we know so much of! Carl did an amazing job, knowing a lot of facts about each place and keeping us upbeat!
Great to see all of the technology buildings. Carl gave an excellent overview of Ireland's history in the beginning of the tour and an in-depth description of each company. Would recommend!
We did the Silicon Valley of Europe tour with Carl Jackson and it was really interesting and fun! He explained some background about the history of Ireland that was helpful in fully understanding the area and the companies there.
Very fascinating part of Dublin, must-see!
Maddy was an exceptional guide. She kept the tour entertaining and informative. Looking forward to try other tours
Very interesting tour, Maddy took us around the best spots in the Docklands
It was a great tour. Totally recommended!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of humor for the group during our tour.
