I really enjoyed the tour, it is quite an original and different way to learn more about the history of Dublin and Ireland as well as getting to know more about some historical buildings.

The tour guides in period costume were very good, but I expected this tour to take us to the scene of Jacob's Biscuit Factory and Boland Mills and explain the action there. So I was rather disappointed because this tour was not what I expected at all.

This tour was amazing! The actors were great!. The day we went there were no male actors available and they almost cancelled the tour. The young woman that filled in had never done the male role before. She was amazing as well as the other young woman. The tour was very educational as well as entertaining. We would definitely do this again.

Make sure you eat before the tour. This was an interesting and informative tour by two young actors that are passionate about the history of the uprising in 1916. I do feel that they could take the tour to a new dimension and it would be rated higher. It was a very good realistic version of the whole history of the one event, but maybe more information on events prior to and immediately after would have made it more complete. It somewhat leaves you hanging. Way to much info on the individual characters.
