Completely met our expectations. Guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Tour was heavy on the history, but that was as advertised. Recommend this tour for adults - kids might be a little bored by the historical/political explanations.
Very good and very informative! Highly recommend. The tour guide was a former student of Trinity College and was happy to answer really in-depth questions about Irish history. Definitely worthwhile.
Great introduction of Dublin. It was very informative and also learned of a few spots that I didn't know about and I read quite a few tour books. Definitely worth the money and time.

A great way to explore the city and to learn about it's history. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and did a great job mixing humor and facts while explaining the history of the various places and famous people of Dublin.
What an amazing tour! Our tour guide, Donall, was great! I thought it was a treat to have a Ph.D student as our guide. I would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Dublin.
Tommy Graham, our tour guide, presented a great potted history of Ireland and had good suggestions for the best of Dublin nightlife as well. This is the second time I've done the tour and it still came across as a fresh experience.
My tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to connect Irish history to the histories of the countries that the people in the group hailed from.
This tour was great! Our guide was really knowledgeable, really fun and really knew what he was doing. When we met up, the main gates to Trinity College were closed, so we couldn't access the meeting point - no worries, the guide was actively asking people waiting around the gates if there were there for his tour! Great service!
He asked if there was anything in particular anyone wanted him to focus on, and he was really good about making sure that people were engaged. I'm Australian, and he was very funny about pointing out that a lot of Irish rebels were deported to Australia after various rebellions. My ancestors!
The walk around the city was amazing, and I think this tour is a great way to be introduced to the city - it's history, it's layout and to get ideas for other things to visit, both within Dublin and in the surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend it, and I actually plan to tell some relatives visiting Dublin to take this tour.
P.S. I wrote a big, detailed review of this tour and then had to log in and didn't have a password and had to set one up, and lost the review, dammit. So annoying! This is a shortened version.
Easy, informational walking tour of the City. It was nice to do this to get introduced to the city. Well worth the money.
Highly recommended. Our guide, Tommy, displayed energy and passion that warmed my group on a particularly chilly day. If you are a lover of history, this tour is a must.
Our guide was tremendous. Very knowledgeable and intellectual and also entertaining without being silly. Our tour took place on a very cold and blustery day over Christmas break but nonetheless it was fascinating and informative and covered a lot of territory. A great introduction to old Dublin to get you oriented and help you know what you'd like to go back to tour in more detail. You don't go inside any of the building stops so then I went back on my own and toured St Patricks and Christchurch and a few other of the stops.
2 hours is not a long time to cover Dublin/Ireland's long and colourful history but this tour does a grand job of it. Centred on a few of Dublin's famous heritage buildings the narrative b the tour guide brings the past to life. Well worth it.
Excellent tour! Our guide had a doctorate in history from Queen's Colliege and was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Dublin. He was able to answer any and all questions- we learned quite a lot about the area and people. Would highly recommend this to others.
The tour was fab! The guide was extremely knowledgable and managed to capture our attention rather well.
Even though it was pouring down rain, this was an amazing tour. The young PhD student was extremely knowledgeable, and actually quite funny. Our group was small and for me, I had been to many of the sights the previous day, and this tour tided all the information I had known and learned together. It really is a must for all individuals visiting Ireland and especially Dublin for the first time.
Very informative, The guide was very interesting and knowledgeable, renewed our interest in our own history and capital city,
Very interesting, very good tour leader (Peter), well organized, good experience.
Tour guide Peter was excellent. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
