Keeva is a great tour guide, who is very enthusiastic and contains a wealth of knowledge about Galway. Tour was a great way of learning about Galway and seeing most of the worthwhile sites. And she's from Queens!!!

Our guide (Keeva) was friendly, dynamic and full of energy (despite the weather). We learn a lot during the 1h30 of walk. Moreover her accent was really easy to understand. Thanks to her.

Didn't take long to discover there was so much history to Galway. What is before your eyes and hidden away was all covered in this very enjoyable two hour walking tour. It is really not a big walk for those that don't like to walk as Galway is really pretty small and lots of the history is with about 10... More

We really enjoyed seeing all the highlights - seeing the river, cathedrals, stories behind monuments and different sites in the city. Our tour guide was very energetic and informative - made it very entertaining. Starts at the perfect place in Eyre Square - very central locale. Definitely worth it to get an overview of the city.
