Fiona's 90-minute tour was excellent. She talked about history, shared stories on places and local people and legends. After the tour, we were able to visit in more detail some of the attractions we passed. Wear comfortable shoes. The fee is €20 per person.

We were touring as a family group,(all adults) and we... More

Fionna's walking tour is a visitors dream. She shares the present and past of this city with great knowledge and charm. She also makes suggestions to visitors about other items of interest. Our daughter had advised us that Fionna's tour was one of the best parts of a trip to Ireland and Fionna proved her recommendation was 100% correct. Don't... More
