Our meeting point is in front of The Old Storehouse bar & restaurant, 3 Crown Alley, Temple Bar, close to Temple Bar Square in the heart of the city. Dublin is easily walkable and the meeting point is just a minute or two from Trinity College, Dublin Castle, and the Ha' Penny Bridge, so you'll easily find it using Google maps, or by asking someone on the street. Once there, you will see your guide right in front of the bar.
