In Our Shoes Walking Tours is even more unique because of your wonderful local guides who live locally.
They’re the people with the insider knowledge. The local charm. The unique access to the good, the bad and the intriguing. Curious chronicles and colourful characters are brought to life through their knowledge and storytelling. All our guides have been professionally trained and are an integral part of our local Community Development Project which is tasked to enhance the lives of local people.
I’m Anthony - born and bred in the Liberties, in the heart of Dublin and proud of where I’m from. It’s important that people from the area have a voice and are able to control the conversation that is happening around the area. That’s what In Our Shoes Walking Tours does for me and I think that’s really important.
As well as being a tour guide at In Our Shoes Walking Tours, Anthony is an art enthusiast and a budding beekeeper. He is very passionate about the community and believes it's at the centre of all that we do.
