What's yor favourite story to tell about Dublin?
I like to tell tourists about the real Dublin, how we love to nickname buildings, bridges
and people. I also love telling the story of the River Liffey and how Dublin is a city of two sides, with each side having its own unique identity and personality.
What hidden gems do you advise tourists to visit?
The Church of the Carmelites located on Aungier Street. The remains of St. Valentine
are kept here, this of course helps explain the romantic nature of native Dubliners.
What's the strangest/funniest question you’ve been asked by a tourist?
I was once asked where the best place was in the city to buy knives. A little scary yes,
but it turned out the guy was a collector of knives and wanted to expand his collection
with a souvenir from his stay in Dublin.
Who are the chattiest tourists?
I find everyone to be chatty, it all depends on the individual rather than their nationality but our friends from North America really do love a chat.
What tripadvisor are saying about Cillian:
“Great way to see the city”
Got the 24 hour pass in april 2017 for €17 each. It was a great way to see the city over two days. It is easy to hop on and off.....I really enjoyed the live tour from Cillian in particular was great and very entertaining. Would highly recommend this tour.
“Cillian is fantastic!”
We loved the whole tour and it made me feel much safer in Dublin after having had a look around. We thought Cillian was brilliant and very brave to sing without a heap of pints.
"Hop on Hop Off Bus Tour"
Great time with drivers that gave good commentary - especially Cillian. Good way to see the city.
