This tour is well worth it for the overview and history of the island! Be prepared to walk and be charmed with the sights and sounds of the area...Our guide was soooo well versed in the history and it made us come back to several areas for a more indepth exploration. You believe you know the background and then he would offer some new and exciting information!!
Excellent Tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and
treated us to a superb history lesson of downtown Dublin. A
little rain occurred halfway through the tour but it didn't distract
very much from the great commentary.
This is a great way to get familure with the Dublin area, an to learn of the history of the city. The guide was excelent.
Our guide was knowledgeable of his topic and willingly answered questions from the group. We enjoyed the 2 hour walking tour.
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.
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!
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!
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.
