The historical walking tour comes highly recommended from me. The guide for this tour Tommy presented a detailed and yet entertaining view of Irish history while touching upon the key milestones. The tour itself covers significant ground by looking at many of the important buildings and sites in Dublin. Tommy was able to share the history in a story telling approach which made the huge variety of facts more lucid and easy to understand. The pace of the walk is moderate and the group was able to keep pace with him. The walking tour also allows one to take in the sights of the city at a comfortable pace and allows you to appreciate how the city came to be. I thoroughly enjoyed it and give it a big thumbs up!

This was a fascinating couple of hours, wandering through buildings and parts of town I wouldn't have thought to visit. The tour took us through significant places in Dublin's and Ireland's history, while weaving in literary historical sites. The guide knew so much and was a pleasure to listen to. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour, we were very lucky for the time of year with the weather. The tour guide was first class imparting great information laced with some very humorous quips. The tour lasted just over 2 hours and if you want a great quick introduction to the history of Dublin this will tick all the boxes.

I arrived to Dublin one day before the rest of my family. I wanted to take a tour to learn about the city and also get a sense of direction so that I could show my family around. This tour was great and allowed me to accomplish that. I was then able to become a tour guide for my family! I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin for the first time!

We had the pleasure of Slyvie as a guide. This tour was very informative and entertaining. I'm amazed at the depth of knowledge and pride of the people in their heritage. This tour left us wanting to see and learn more. Great city, great tour, great tour guide! Easy walking tour, too. Do it!

This was a fabulous walking tour! Good pace, great information and the guide was absolutely outstanding!! We went toward the end of our stay, but I would do it earlier if you can. The time just flew by and ended on the perfect note-where Handel's Messiah was first performed publicly! Do not miss this tour!

Having that post graduate history instructor who was passionate about Irish history made the walking tour interesting, informative. He also had some humor that made the walk not boring. Highly recommended.

Great, something new. Not just things you can imagine yourself or that you already know, but real history, food for thought and lots of new information.

The wonderfully informed and energetic doctoral student gave us the best tour of the city we could have asked for. His clear and cogent delivery, wonderful good humor and patience for all the questions made for a great experience. We had about 12 in our group and we all could hear him even over the traffic. This tour went a long way in helping us to understand the complicated history of the country and the political issues and cultural forces that permeate the society there. Really great! Everyone was rapt!
Thanks, Eoin! Wait - did i spell that right???? sorry! OWEN

The reservation indicated where we were to meet the guide, but I wish I had better directions to the location. I took a bus from the hotel and was confused by the various entrances to Trinity College. I left with plenty of time and arrived at the appointed meeting spot ahead of schedule. I was surprised by the number of people waiting for the tour. Fortunately, there were two guides and we were separated into two groups. Our guide, Alex, was a history doctorate candidate. Lucky us! He had so much knowledge and background information making the tour so meaningful. Just as advertised, this tour is full of historical facts and perspective. Also, there's a lot of walking. People with limited mobility may want to keep this in mind.

This was a fascinating tour--we had two guides who split our group in half. We learned so much more than the few words you might get on a bus tour, and planned our follow-on visits to certain sites based on what we learned. Our guide was great actually looked like one of our two red-headed American Irish sons! and we even had a nice visit with him in a pub after the tour and beforfe his next assignment.

Great walking tour, really enjoyed the entire experience. Alex was well versed and knowledgeable and made the tour easy and relaxed. He was also thoughtful and looked out for all on the tour. We got stuck at traffic light crossings and he waved to acknowledge that he knew where we were. His knowledge of historical facts was great and he also made it enjoyable with interesting side notes. It was not a strenuous walking tour but long enough while seeing major attractions. Thanks Alex it was great.

Amazing tour! I would come with at least a little knowledge about Ireland. It would make the tour even better. Our tour went over by almost an hour so you definitely get your moneys worth. Our guide was full of information it was like having our own historian.
