Excellent Tour
Aug 2018 • Family
We enjoyed the walking tour with Ollie back in August this year. He shared his local knowledge of Ennis with us and shared his Irish culture with a game of hurling and some Irish singing. We stayed in Ennis for a week before heading to Dublin for another week and Ollie's tour easily made it's way on the list of our family's favorite activities for our entire vacation in Ireland. We enjoyed the sights, laughter and his recommendation of visiting Bunratty Castle on our way out of town. We were lucky enough to bump into him at a boutique clothing store and he gave us an excellent recommendation for lunch. My son can't wait to go back and see Ollie again to share more laughter and have some "crack". :)

Outstanding Tour
Aug 2018 • Couples
Ollie is one of the best tour guides we’ve had. He is very knowledgeable and shares his love of Ennis in a fun filled walk through the town. We really enjoyed the morning we spent with Ollie. We even were able to meet his grandparents...so now we know where he gets his good manners and friendliness. Highly recommend Ollie’s Tours!

Ollie was easy to find, near the statue of O'Connel. He took us on a walk through Ennis, enthusiastically talking about the history of this city and of Ireland. Ollie is a great storyteller who combines the story of individuals with the greater historic events. He also has a keen eye for his audience: answers their questions and waits when someone needs a bit more time to have a look. We enjoyed this tour very much.

Jul 2018 • Couples
We only had a few hours in Ennis before our flight home at the end of a two week holiday in Ireland. So glad we found Ollie’s tour. He’s a young man who deserves every success. The tour was informative and entertaining and the Irish Culture workshop, which was an optional part of the tour, was good fun as well as educating us a little bit in the Irish language, hurling and an Irish song.
Ollie was really likeable and good at what he does, if you’re a visitor to Ennis don’t miss this.

An amazing experience!
Met up with our lovely tour guide Ollie by a recognizable landmark in Ennis, with my SO and parents. We started off with a walking tour, visiting the most important sites of Ennis. We then proceeded to a workshop, themed Irish culture. We got to try a bit of hurling techniques, learn some phrases in the native tounge of Gaeilge, and have a look at the Irish football. We then continued our walking tour around Ennis, and got to hear loads of interesting stories and facts, of both the town and of Ireland.

We had a lovely time, and were actually quite baffled realizing how much history is centered in such a small place as Ennis. Our tour guide Ollie is passionate about the history of the place, and it is hard not to get cheered up and mesmerized by the positivity he emits. If there is one thing in Ireland I recommend doing, it is Ollie's tour of Ennis. He is the tour guide of tour guides!

Thank You, André, for your amazing review. Ennis would not be a tourism hotspot and so it is my pleasure to bring the town to life and show you how historic and entertaining Ennis can be. I myself have been a tour guide for years and am humbled by your feedback. Come back and visit Ennis soon!

Lively Tour of Ennis
Jun 2018 • Solo
Ollie is an energetic, fun and funny tour guide. He made Ennis and Ireland's history so fascinating. Ennis is such a small town that had it not been Ollie's tour, I would have completely missed out of the interesting history of Ennis in the large backdrop of Irish history. A definite, must do while in Ennis. Happy 90th Birthday to Ollie's GRANDMOTHER MARY! Of course you know you have a wonderfully mature grandson.

Hi to Ollie's Grandmother Mary
Jun 2018 • Couples
Ollie's Grandmother Mary has every reason to be proud of her grandson and his love and appreciation for Ennis and Irish life. We spent two hours plus with Ollie and thoroughly enjoyed learning about Ennis' locales, life, and Irish history through his very interactive tour. We learned some Irish language, the start of appreciation for Irish Hurling and Gaelic Football, and much about his hometown.

Something Different
Jun 2018 • Couples
Ollie was a great tour guide. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned some history of Ennis as we walked around town. He showed us places we wouldn’t have seen on our own. He also taught us some Irish expressions and about Irish sports. We highly recommend this tour.

Ollie has huge energy and enthusiasm. He likes to interact. He managed to sew the key characters of Irish history into Ennis. We chose just to do the walking tour so can't comment on the cultural element of ollie's tours. He recommended the Rowan Tree for lunch which was really good

Hi Clive, Thanks for taking the time to write a review about Ollie's Tours. Some people really enjoy the Irish Culture Workshop and some are just really interested in the walking tour. I'm glad that I was able to give you guys a tailored tour to suit your liking. I'm looking forward to hearing from you about the "Lincon Prison" rumors. Thanks again!
