I have done walking tours in many cities but this is tops, indeed it is the second time I have done it and can't recommend it highly enough. Lorcan Collins is probably the best walking tour guide in the world. Knowledgeable and incredibly witty. Great to be there when Ireland voted "yes". Just wish Scotland had done the same in... More

I would highly recommend this tour both to visitors to our country and for Irish people. Conor was our guide and he gave an amazing overview of the time, the city as it was, how the people lived and a real insight into the history of our country at that time.

Highly, Highly recommend Lorcan's tour - and early in your trip - to lend perspective to Dublin and Ireland's past struggles and triumphs. It is an important part of the country's past and has helped to shape who they are as a people and a republic! He is so passionate and knowledgeable about the subject, and mixes in some very...

The 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour is a wonderful experience and well presented by Lorcan Collins, an expert on the topic and engaging tour guide. The tour was perfect for both myself, who knew very little about the Easter Uprising and my husband who is very well read on the topic. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the...

I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in Irish history. Our guide, Lorcan, was passionated by the Eastern revolution and brought back all the colourful characters of this founding moment of Ireland alive. He was funny and told us a great deal of anecdotes. He adapted to the group, depending on nationalities, ages etc. The tour was a bit... More

My friends and I went on the tour yesterday. From first meeting Lorcan I knew it would be good. He is such a funny, well informed and friendly man. He is passionate about the subject and it follows through to everyone on the tour. The chat before it begins is great and fills everyone in on the topic before starting... More

My wife and I took this tour today on a Saturday. The weather was ideal and even though it was a large group (probably because of the weather and it being a Saturday) we had no problem hearing our guide, Lorcan Collins. It immediately becomes obvious that Lorcan has an extremely good grasp of the subject. It is fun to... More

Lorcan is a very experienced guide who has run the tour for nearly 20 years. We met at the International Bar and were given an historical background and introduction before we departed. The tour did assume some background knowledge, and the presentation was not objective, but rather from his personal (strong) beliefs and views. As guests with little previous knowledge,... More

I did the tour on a Saturday with my girlfriend. We were part of total group of about 20 which was a good size for doing the trip. The tour costs 12e and lasts about 2 hours. Overall we enjoyed the tour but there are several elements that could easily be improved upon. Lorcan the guide is clearly passionate about... More
