There’s now a Dublin ‘Instagram Tour’ and they’re looking for guides

Brian Dillon

We all knew this day was going to come.

It turns out, you can now do an Instagram tour of Dublin.

Yes, you can become an Insta-expert and get the most stunning snaps with expert guides who know a thing or two about capturing the best moments.

Tours last 1.5 hours and take guests around the most Insta-worthy locations in Dublin, such as Trinity College, Temple Bar and other notable spots that would make for an unreal backdrop for stellar photos.

And they’re looking for guides.

Successful applicants will be responsible for giving the 1.5-hour tour, which normally starts at on Saturdays at 2pm at the entrance of Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre.

You’ll also have to introduce yourself at the start of the tour, explain your planned route, help tourists take unreal pictures (giving tips on tips on filtering, editing, angles, lighting, etc), come up with sample captions, and more.

The ideal candidate should have to have a few key qualities. First of all, you’ll already need to be an Instagram king/queen. The job ad reads, “You will be passionate about photography and active on Instagram. You are an expert in optimising photos through Instagram.

“You will have a portfolio of photography to share.”

The job ad also says that past experience giving tours, past professional work or training as a photographer and additional languages are also desirable (but not necessary).

The job pays €20-€25 per hour and candidates must be available to give tours on weekends.

Dublin Instagram Tours officially launched in September, announcing the news on their Instagram. They wrote, “We have worked hard to launch and excited to start showing you the most Instagrammable spots of Dublin ?? with our awesome InstaGuides.”
