A walking tour mightn't strike you as the best way to spend a day in Dublin. 

Traipsing around with a bunch of tourists wearing plastic mac ponchos?

No, thank you. 

But you'd be surprised by how fantastic some of Dublin's walking tours actually are. 

This particular one will launch on College Green today — and it sounds feckin' fantastic.
