The tour was excellent. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. The first day we arrived we did a tour of Kilmainham Gaol, the Dublin Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College tied together so much of what we learned at the Gaol to the city as we walked around. So glad we did the tours in this sequence.
Our guide was knowledgeable of his topic and willingly answered questions from the group. We enjoyed the 2 hour walking tour.
We are Irish and we really enjoyed the tour, our tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot from him. We had American friends with us and they really loved the tour also. I would recommend that anyone visiting Dublin should do this tour.
Very interesting . I do recommend this tour and guide . Barbara from Poland
This was my very first trip to Dublin and I was very curious to learn anything. This Historical Walking Tour gave me the first glimpse of the history and culture of Ireland, and of course of Dublin in particular. Two hours went by so fast, I wish it was a whole-day tour. I look forward to returning and joining the tour again to learn more about the amazing history and culture of Ireland. Many thanks to Tommy Graham, a great guide!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Dublin and its history. And, he communicated that information in a captivating manner. I didn't want the tour to end!
It was an excellent tour, very informative and very entertaining. A good thing to do when you first arrive in Dublin to get your bearings and decide what to visit whilst you are there.
Absolutely fantastic! I wouldn't recommend it if you're traveling with kids, but for adults it's a great way to learn about historic Dublin.
Don't debate, just go on this. A group of about twenty or so guides, mostly post grad students take it in turns to walk you through the history of Dublin with some enchanting tales. Like, why the Bank of Ireland building (formerly the Irish Parliament) has no windows - to avoid a tax imposed on windows. That was the origin of the phrase "daylight robbery" probably, and maybe was the only "paneless" tax in history (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). Our guide, the day we went, was the delightful and knowledgeable Donal Fallon. If you have the good fortune to have him as a guide, make sure to congratulate him on St Pats winning the league in 2013, after 14 years of utter futility. Emphasize the futility bit, he'll take it in good stride. Highly recommended tour!
Excellent---the entire history of Ireland in just over two hours by very informed and entertaining guide--complete with on site visits
Excellent. Was easy to meet at the main gate of Trinity. The tour guide was experienced, informative and low key. We had a relatively easy stroll across some main areas adjacent to Temple Bar, and saw some "secret" locations. It was a great way to become familiar with the core area of Dublin. I could have done the tour again, later, as I was a bit jet lagged and didn't retain all of the information. Our guide was very informative!! It was an excellent overview, though, of Irish history near and distant and the complex way it has woven together. I recommend taking this tour before going to see Kilmainham Gaol as it will contextualize the story of the Gaol's history. I would also recommend going to see the Post Office afterward. I really appreciate the careful, even handed way Ireland has chosen to represent its struggle for independence. Very eye opening. Our guide had many small personal details that made the stories come alive.
