Dan — Guides Dublin Dan Dan’s family come from two very old parts of Dublin, ‘the Liberties’ and ‘the Tenters’. Spending his childhood weekends in the markets of the Liberties – which live in the shadow and aroma of the Guinness Brewery – shaped a love of all things absolute in their Dublin-ness. The chants of the stall keepers, the stories of characters who had long since passed, Bang Bang and hard as nails Lux Brannigan, how everybody in the entire liberties seems to know what Brenda Fricker gave up for Lent and, of course, a spiced pork known only in working class areas of Dublin!

Ian — Guides Dublin Ian Dublin born, bred and buttered on both sides, a student of both literature and theatre, this handsome young man can often be found languidly reading poetry by the Grand Canal, in soft soliloquy on one of Dublin’s many stages or gaily gulping galoptious Guinness by the gallon in any number of Dublin grog houses. Time spent with Ian is as authentic an Irish experience as missing the last bus home from town and walking home drunk in the rain. A cultural powerhouse of an individual combining carefully crafted attire with devilish charm and good looks, Ian has established himself as an Irish institution as dear to us as battered sausages, sexual repression and conversations about the weather.

James  — Guides Dublin James James is also known as "Horse" but he will never tell you why! A true Dublin native, James is a big fan of music, festivals and any kind of party. He has travelled extensively and done a multitude of impressive things including managing an Irish Bar in Singapore, receiving the freedom of Gouvy, a small municipality in Belgium, from Mayor André Hubert having made a citizen's arrest on a Jewelry-store thief and he once dislocated his jaw trying to lick his own elbow. James loves red lemonade, which you can only get in Ireland as it has been banned elsewhere and makes children super hyper and he also loves his relatively new puppy!

Keith — Guides Dublin Keith Keith is by far Next City Tours' coolest tour guide. He’s an actor, an entrepreneur, a champion mountain climber and the captain of his diving team in his home town of Muff, Co Donegal. In Keith’s early days before he realised he wanted to be an actor, he tried to find fame by joining an Irish boyband called OTT – Over The Top. Although OTT had a few cracking hits, they never broke the vital US market. If he brings you out for a walking tour or a pubcrawl, ask him can you have some OTT memorabilia. He has a whole garage worth of it.
