We loved our walking tour of Dublin. It was interesting and enjoyable. It gave us a great overview of the city of Dublin and the history of the country. Alex was engaging and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was free for most of those in the group. :(

A lot of history....lucky if we retained 2% of it! the only bummer....our group seemed to double in size as we went along....many didn't pay...just joined it for free outside of the gates. Made it more difficult to hear. Suggest a big sticker for paying customers...or something. We didn't even have to prove that we paid.
We started our trip with this particular tour, and it was perfect. Our guide was informative, smart and engaging. We learned a tremendous amount about Ireland's history and it's impact on present day. Hearing the stories while standing in the same places being referenced was incredible. We would highly recommend this tour for any visitor.

Our guide Neil was very knowledgeable and entertaining - I learned so much and especially enjoyed the easy visit to the library. I also would use Viator again; it was my first time (recommended by a friend) and although I had to change my dates and had several questions by email, their staff were quick to respond and helpful -- important when you're traveling in a strange place.

Enjoyed a lovely evening out during Christmastime in Dublin with Irish verse and Guinness (or Murphy’s which I’m not allowed to admit to in Dublin).

I've been on pub crawls in four countries, and I must say that this one was up there with one of my favorites. Our guide (Ian) was hilarious and perfect. My wife and I had a great time, met a bunch of cool people, and got to explore the city. I would definitely do this crawl again.

Compact tour of some historic locations of Dublin and highlighting the annals of the people and places.

I had a fabulous time walking in the forest and along the cliffs.Stephen was a great guide and host. I would highly recommend for people who want a brisk walk with a multitude of wonderful vistas. Great photo opportunities as well. Lunch was a nice pub stop.

We took the Dublin Historical Walking Tour on our first day in Dublin. It gave us a good overview and layout of the city. Also, the guide identified points of interest that we probably would have bypassed (e.g., the Archeological Museum - which is a must see). This is a good overview tour, but you don't dive too deploy into any one area. There is a lot of walking (2 1/2 hours) so wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

, Dec 2019
I didn't expect a lot from this tour. I thought we were just taken some places that GOT took place but the tour was very very informative. The tour guide was amazing.

Most entertaining tour with a very knowledgeable local historian. We utterly enjoyed ourselves strolling around Merrion Sq and listening to our tour guide. He was full of information, historical and fun facts and was able to answer every question we posed his way. Highly recommend!
Dublin Rogues Tour is fun and exciting, it's not just a history tour but more a storytelling tour with quirky facts and a great insight into the characters who have lived on this beautiful Georgian square since 1762
Niall was a great whiskey guide! He was easy to talk to and it was immediately apparent that he knows his whiskey. He went over the history of Irish whiskey as a foundation for all the tastings we were going to have and knew a lot about the different processes and the different whiskey businesses in Ireland.
You get to go to three different locations (off the tourist path) and taste about 5 different whiskeys.
He also had good recommendations for food, pubs, and whiskeys that weren't full of tourists.
I wish it hadn't been my last night so that I could have tried more of those recommendations and gone back to the bars we went to.

Skip the Line Guinness Storehouse Signature Package and Gift Box
, Nov 2019
My husband was more into this than me (he's a Guinness fan; I don't drink beer) but we both had a great time. The building you tour is more of a museum than a brewery but it's fun and informative. And at the top is a 360 degree view of the city that you can enjoy with your "free" (included) glass of Guinness.
It was an interesting tour showing how Guiness is made, but you don't actually see the real thing. It's a multi media show. The Gravity bar had a fabulous view of the city, and I think the free pint is why most people go on this tour. The gift shop is huge and they will ship your purchases back to the US.
Take advantage of skip-the-line entry privileges to Dublin's popular Guinness Storehouse. This Signature Package allows you to breeze past the crowds and explore the storehouse and museum at your own pace. Take home a gift package including a 3D fridge magnet and a Guinness Dublin Pint Glass in a presentation gift box. Complimentary pint of Guinness included.
