Explore Dublin and Ireland with an experienced traveler as your guide!
A lifetime of experience in the arts and theatre around the world - from the palaces of
Russia, the grandeur of London, to the ancient streets of Rome - led me to the place I
love best...Dublin. I fell in love with Ireland the moment I set foot on Irish soil. Oh, but
Dubln...it is the place I love best!
I spent years exploring Ireland, and learning about Irish history and culture and I feel
more at home there than anyplace in the world. As I talk to people about my
adventures, they often say such things as "Hearing you speak about Ireland with such
enthusiasm...I want to go, too!" or "It sounds like so much fun, but I could never do
that...take off to a foreign country and find my my own way."
My name is Cynthia James and there is nothing I enjoy more than showing people
around the historic cobblestone streets of Dublin and sharing all I've learned about
Ireland. If you would like an Irish adventure, but you don't want to do it alone, come
with me and I'll show you the way!
Join me for a MAGICAL TOUR of DUBLIN! and see why Dublin has a reputation for
being a vibrant, colorful and lively cosmopolitan city. You WILL have fun...IRISH style!!

"More than 850,000 Americans come to Ireland every year, but despite Dublin's being home to 40 percent of Ireland's population, many tourists zip through the capital city on their way to Ireland's postcard-perfect rolling hills and craggy seasides. One resident told me, 'Your people come to Dublin to go to the Guinness Brewery and get a motorcoach to the country. You think Dublin isn't the real Ireland.' Historical sites abound in Dublin, each of which touches on a different part of a 1,200-year stretch of Dublin's history, from the Viking settlements in the year 800 to the Irish War of Independence that ended in 1921."
