Dalton's Musical History Tour of Dublin combines the city's history and music in a fun tour that all ages will enjoy.
(3:17) Why A Musical History Tour of Dublin?
Fiona had been a secretary for 25 years but had always been a singer. Missing that, she decided to get back to her singing roots and work as a tour guide, as well. As she went through school and began to do research on music in Dublin, the idea really formed into a unique tourism idea.
(5:03) How Did you Choose the Music and Attractions?
As Fiona studied Dublin's history and music history she found an obvious link between the two.
Six sites on on her initial tour, and more tours will be added through the year.
Fiona chose the songs first, learning the history of those, and then chose the places based on that history.
Fiona chose songs based on familiarity and ease for people to learn.
(7:12) An Interactive Walking Tour of Dublin
Fiona will sing the song through, then the group will sing with her.
But you don't have to sing if you don't want to.
It's really very fun! View a wee snippet of video from my tour!
