Signed up for the Dublin tour about Ireland contributions to science and was positively surprized by how professional and knowledgeable the guide was (an actual Irish scientist with the traditional talent for story telling). Will probably go for another of their tour.

I have been meaning to sign up for ages, and jumped at the chance to go on the "Ingenious Dublin! Networking walk with a geeky twist, and (optional) lunch" in March early this year. The day was soft (Irish misty rain) but it was an enjoyable day, everyone learnt a lot. I won't spoil anything here, just enjoy the tour.... More

I've now done two Ingenious Ireland's walking tours around Dublin City Center and both were perfectly paced, full of interesting information about my favourite city and Ireland's scientific heritage. Mary and Patrick are thoroughly entertaining, superb guides with a gift for bringing their stories to life. The tours are an absolute delight and I cannot recommend them highly enough, whether...

I booked The INGENIOUS DUBLIN! walking tour as a networking event for 7 different women in technology national and Dublin based networks. It was excellent for several reasons: as a Dubliner raised by cultural curious parents I found out things about the city I never knew. Fascinating stories told in a wonderfully accessible and engaged way, Mary Mulvihill is a... More

I spent a deliciously geeky couple of hours in the company of Patrick Roycroft, and a few of my colleagues this afternoon, in glorious sunshine in a chaotic Dublin city centre. Not only did I learn lots about the city which I have called home for the last 15 years, but I was entertained along the way. Thanks again, Patrick.

Thanks Mary for a great start to our hen party day! Everyone agreed it was a lovely way to spend the morning, helped of course by the sun making an appearance. Nicely paced, interesting tour, the Irish really are great! Would absolutely go on this tour again and highly recommend it to locals and visitors alike.

We took our second tour with Ingenious today. We live and work in Dublin but walk past so much of the city without paying enough attention. The tour offers some genuine insights into science and history, delivered by guides who're clearly passionate about their subject. It's not some pre-recorded audio tour or an uninterested bus driver calling out facts by... More

Myself and two good friends Anne and Trish took the Ingenious Dublin Walk / Talk at the end of January 2014. It was a Christmas gift from me to us and what a real treat it turned out to be. The walk was very entertaining and at times mind blowing. The day was stormy with a wild wind and some... More

I did the Obstreperous Women walking tour on Saturday morning and found it fascinating. Tour guide was really enthusiastic, I really enjoyed how she welcomed contributions from the audience which gave a really well-rounded tour. Very relaxed, very informative. Highly recommended.

Thank you, and I’m so glad you enjoyed this new tour. We were delighted to have special guests along on the day, and their stories and the contributions from everyone meant that I, as the guide, learned lots too. Thanks again for coming, and taking the time to review the tour. Mary Mulvihill, Ingenious Ireland More
