Homeless Walking Tours

A look back on April

First up, A big Thank You to all who joined our walking tours last month and supported us in our mission.

We’re now up to 43 five stars reviews on Trip Advisor and are slowly climbing the ranks for tours in Dublin. If you haven’t left yours yet, please give us a review here.

We had the pleasure welcome various organisations on our walking tour last month, including The Wheel, Dublin Simon’s Community, the Swiss Club Ireland, Google…and many more.

Thank you for your support!

More Amazing Reviews in April

“Fantastic idea! A communitarian look at the oldest part of Dublin through the eyes of someone who both worked with the homeless and has been homeless himself…”

“Derek was humble and knowledgeable about the area and its history, weaving in his own experience of homelessness as we progressed. ”

“Derek gave a great description of life for Dublin's poor, historically and in the present day, with the very personal touch that he has been through it himself, describing it with a very moving dignity and understanding. Memorable. Congratulations and thanks to both Derek and the organisers of Secret Street Tours.”

“Just what I love in a tour: off the beaten track, mix of history, social issues, and personal experience ! Derek was just great.”
