Had a fantastic time. They were very funny and informative, great acting. The pubs were a bit packed, but we cared more for the interactions than the beer on this tour.

A very enjoyable tour. Frank and Sarah were talented, informative and entertaining. Many in my party of 9 had little knowledge of Dublin writers but all agreed it was a great way to spend an evening in Dublin. The warm balmy evening was another bonus.
