We were very disappointed. Part of it could have been the weathermore than a soft rain in my book. The guides do quote Irish authors and poets, but usually outside, which can be cold and for us, very wet. We were taken to 4 pubs, but there was minimal association with the authors/poets. At the pubs, which were very busy, we had 20 minutes to order and drink, not my usual speed. The quiz was ok, but I know many on our tour were googling answers. Overall, not wonderful. Cant really say that I would recommend it.
We got off the plane in Dublin, checked into our hotel, and then made our way to the pub for this tour. Hands down, best way to introduce yourself to Dublin. The walk was informative and entertaining. Nothing to strenuous. People with all levels of fitness and abilities were on this tour and no one was left behind or felt held back. The guides gave a great overview to the town, helping to orientate us for the next couple days of site seeing, as well as to Dublin's history and culture. I loved the stories, the jokes, the drinks. I firmly believe that this is a must do on your first day in Dublin.
