Shane was a personable and informative guide on this tour! We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and overlooking the city lights as we made our way to visit 3 very wonderful yet different pubs. We especially enjoyed the music provided by locals gathered at our last stop. It was a fun, relaxed way to spend an evening outside the city. This... More

So I was somewhat hesitant to book, who wants to commit to a 9hr to a tour?. At the end, I was wishing 9 hrs was just the beginning. Our driver was Shane, a character of great knowledge and personability that executed our tour in a hilariously brilliant fashion. The locals respect and like this guy, they seem excited just... More

This was by far the best tour I went on while I visited Dublin! Going to local pubs, and talking to locals all night is what everyone thinks about when they think of Ireland! This tour was so much fun and the tour guide Shane was AWESOME! He is such a good host and wants everyone to have as much... More

For starters Shane is the best tour guide around. Not only was he knowledgable and funny, he took us to some pretty neat spots. Also from his recommendations we went to a few places that even some of the locals weren't too aware about. He also kept in contact after the trip with excellent advice. Our ireland trip wouldn't of... More

First of all: Tour-Guide Shane is an irish Original. And he enjoys his work. By his nature he has infected everyone on the tour. We had a lot of fun and saw some of the most beautiful pubs outside Dublin. Thanks a lot Shane!

We had the most wonderful time during the rural pub tour with Shane, last Saturday. From beginning to end Shane made us all feel very welcome. We also cannot thank Shane (and the rest of the group) enough about the warm support we received in support of the world cup football match Netherlands - Costa Rica. Fantastic that we could... More
