Have you ever wanted to work as a Tour Guide or in tourism? Are you a passionate historian who would love to share your enthusiasm with visitors to Dublin? Or perhaps you just want to learn more about the capital city of Ireland and have good fun along the way? If any of this sounds like you, then our course is for you!
We are delighted to announce our new Guide Training Course for the Winter Season 2019-2020! This highly acclaimed course, led by the renowned Dublin historian Pat Liddy, is designed to help you learn everything you need to conduct top-class tours of Dublin City and the surrounding areas to a professional level. It is open to working tour guides and complete beginners alike.
The course covers a mix of Irish and Dublin history, works on developing your guiding skills - on foot and by coach - and includes discussions and guest sessions with our current working tour guides and industry contacts, as well as familiarisation visits to various Dublin attractions and areas of the city.
The course will run twice a week from the 12th of November until the 29th of February, on Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:30am to 1:00pm, with a break over the Christmas period. A Certificate of Completion will be issued to all successful participants at the end of the course, putting you in good standing to pursue work in the sector as an independent tour-guide or as part of a guiding team.
The cost for the course is €850 including VAT, which can be put against income tax for revenues earned from touring.
The venue for initial orientation and groundwork will be the CHQ Building on Custom House Quay (Luas Red Line, George’s Dock Stop).
