I really enjoyed my walking tour of Galway with Fiona. I only wish I had done it on my first day and not my last. The history shared was interesting and just enough. She was brilliant with answering questions and making suggestions for additional things to look at after the tour. I definitely recommend it. The time flew by.

Our tour of Galway with Fiona was great. Just the right length and amount of info, presented with a sense of passion in such a way as to keep your mind focused. She added optional things to do after the tour which helped us plan the remaining few hours we had in Galway. Highly recommended, thanks Fiona!

Fiona Brennan was our guide and she provided a excellent tour of center city Galway. Outstanding knowledge on the history of Galway and presented the information in a very easy going fashion. She responded promptly to all pre-tour information questions. The tour will provide not only interesting historical information but will give you a good orientation of center city Galway... More

We were fortunate to have Fiona as our guide on our Galway Walking Tour. She is a great story teller and regaled us with fascinating facts and lore that gave us a deeper appreciation for Galway's past. It was well worth the 10 euro cost for the 90 minute tour. Highly recommended !

We did this tour with Fiona yesterday, the 90 minutes flew past. We really enjoyed all the information and history she passed on. It was our first visit to Galway but it we will definitely go back, it's a beautiful place.

Fiona Brennan conducted an enjoyable and engaging walk of Galway! I would highly recommend her guided tour, before you venture off in to Galway, if you did not know the history of Galway. After our tour we saw all the sights and even "kicked the wall."

Thanks to Rick Steves we contacted Fiona Brennan in Galway for a walking tour. From the get -go she was superb. She even starts her tour where there is free parking and near a hotel where we sheltered (the usual 4 season day) and got an overview of what we would see and the history of the area. Go to... More

One of the better tours in a fascinating city. Rich in history and churches. This is a great city for tourists. Small lots of shopping and eats and pubs. Be sure to get the "church lore" in the anglican church.
