    Great tour guide and perfect walk around ALL of the spots in Dublin!
    John Caffrey became a part of our family that day in Dublin, and we had a great time. I was surprised by all that we were able to cover in just 5 hours, but we were never rushed and there was always flexibility in the steps we took. I saw a Gelato spot and John made sure we got over there for a scoop! Johns Knowledge on historic facts is amazing and not limited to just the basic tour notes, as he was giving us real life details of the day to day in Ireland and Dublin from the past and today. With some great personalization thrown in, I would enjoy a pint with John any day any time! Oh, and we had the chance for John to take us on a Pub Crawl later, so you can tell we all had a great time.

    Wonderful 8-hr tour with Austin!
    We did an 8-hr tour with Austin and he was an excellent guide! He was very communicative before our trip and made sure to tailor the tour for our group and what we wanted to see. He was so knowledgeable and gave us all sorts of information at various landmarks and along the way. He was also accommodating with our need for snacks, coffee, lunch and bathroom breaks. Would highly recommend!!

    Dublin Coastal Hike with Mark Hanratty
    We had a wonderful day with Mark learning about Ireland and seeing the breathtaking views of the Ireland coast. We learned how to make Irish coffee at a local cafe. The area is beautiful and Mark was so nice and knowledgeable.

    "Must do" Dublin walking tour!
    This is a "must do" walking tour if you are not only interested in visiting the city but learning about the fascinating and complex history which makes Ireland and Dublin the place it is today. Austin Rock, our guide, was knowledgeable and passionate about all things Irish. His sense of humour had us laughing and the hours flew by. Thank you so much Austin for this insight into Irish history! The tour, organized by Dublin Tour Guide, was professional from start to finish and I highly recommend using this company.

    The Treasures of Ireland
    I have used Dublin Tour Guide-Private tours previously on trips to Ireland. This time I booked a private Tour of Dublin Museums: Treasures of Ireland . John Caffrey was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about all the museums and Irish treasures we saw. He is very passionate about the history of Ireland and told us the most amazing stories about the different pieces of artwork as they related to Irish history. Thank you again John for a wonderful day and thank you to Dublin Tour Guide for setting up this tour for our small group. Kathy and Greg.

    Amazing Tour with Dublin Tour Guide
    I have used Dublin Tour Guide-Private tours previously on trips to Ireland. This time I booked a private Dublin 5 hour Tour. Eamon was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about all the sites we saw. He is very passionate about the Poets of Ireland and told us the most amazing stories about Dublin's famous poets. We walked all over Dublin and stopped at a traditional pub for a pint. We added on the Book of Kells to our tour which is a must do for anyone going to Dublin. Trinity College is beautiful and the story of the Book of Kells is fascinating. Thank you Eamon for a wonderful day and thank you to Dublin Tour Guide for setting up this tour for our small group. Kathy and Friends.

    Political Walking Tour of Dublin
    Eamon is an amazing guide with extensive historical knowledge and facts here and there. He took us along a recount of the history of Ireland leading up to 1921 leading us around both north and south of Dublin.

    A fantastic Tour!
    Eamond was a fantastic guide! The historical context he provided during the tour was invaluable and were able to easily grasp the breadth of historical conflict and how it has impacted Ireland today. Not only that, Eamond is extremely charismatic and friendly. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to show me around Dublin!

    Wonderful private tour of Dublin with Kevin
    Kevin was an incredible tour guide! Raised in Dublin he was knowledgeable in history and lived experience. He engaged everyone in our group and we had a great time on our tour. He was also very thoughtful; so much so that I don't normally leave reviews but wanted to return him the favor. I highly recommend a tour with him - thank you Kevin!!

    Evening Pub stroll
    Our evening Pub crawl of unique Dublin pubs was hosted by our warm and informative guide, Eamon! The walking tour was custom tailored to avoid duplication of stops we'd made on our own, Eamon is very knowledgeable, sharing Dublin history while we enjoyed, music and pints in several different spots throughout the evening. Eamon is a highly skilled historian, and he shared easily in his Irish "story-tellin" fashion! All 4 of us enjoyed spending the evening with Eamon strolling easily thru the Dublin streets.

    Excellent Tour Guide for all things Ireland
    We joined Ciarán for the (Nearly!) All of Dublin tour and what a great guide. Beyond just raw knowledge of dates and sites, Ciarán is a student of history and explained the events and historical places in context of events of the time. And this was over the 2,000 years of Irish history! Charming, engaging and thoughtful, we greatly enjoyed the day. Top marks and thanks for a super day, including him sharing a “British” scone and a few of his “hidden” restaurants. I’d also like to add that Ciarán also took care of the following days bookings for Christ Church and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Logistics were perfect.

We spent a beautiful morning around Dublin with our guide Cathal, who was really good at organizing the tour in such a way as to show us so many things, studying the route in order to maximize the experience and minimize travel between places. He told us many interesting stories, peculiarities, traditions, curiosities, filling the experience with many extras compared to a self-made tour such that in the rest of our little vacation we almost felt like we already knew the city. Totally recommended, this tour is an experience that truly allows you to immerse yourself in Dublin to the fullest and our guide Cathal was really unique!

John Coffey provided a marvelous walking tour of Dublin. He was punctual, professional, energetic, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. We are visiting Ireland as a family of five (2 adults, 3 teenage kids) and he met us on Monday July 18 for a casual stroll through all of the key highlights of the City, including incredible stories on the City’s history and the people who make it so remarkable. The tour included St Stephen’s Green, Molly Malone, Trinity College, the historic post office, several bridges across the River Liffey, Temple Bar, Christ Church and Dublin Castle. We could not possibly have had a better host. Thank you, John!

My sister and I had an amazing morning with Carl the day after we arrived in Dublin. I only wish I could have recorded his outstanding account of Irish history and culture. He carefully curated our time together to reflect our interests and the fact that we had visited a few iconic places the day before. His passion and profound communication skills engaged us from start to finish, and created a superb platform for us to explore Ireland over the next two weeks. Thank you Carl!

We spent several hours today walking the fascinating streets and sights of Dublin with expert guide John Caffrey. We only had a couple of days in Dublin and this tour was the clear highlight. John is a great guy and his head is chock full of history and stories about Dublin, its hidden nooks, crannies and gems, all described in the greater context of whatever time period he is discussing. He is obviously passionate about what he does and he takes the tour but not himself seriously, and the result is a delight of a time. I have a much better feel for the city having now viewed it through the eyes of an exceptionally well-educated local. I cannot recommend this tour with this guide highly enough. Thank you, John and DTG tours.

My sister and I had a wonderful time exploring Dublin for the first time with our excellent guide John Caffrey. He is passionate about the city and has a vast knowledge of the history, (fun) facts and anecdotes that are part of Dublin.
We learned a lot and recommend everyone to book this tour.
He told everything with so much enthusiasm, even the rain didn’t bother us.

Our guide John Caffrey was a complete wealth of knowledge, all explained with great enthusiasm and humour. Our tour not only took in the great city of Dublin, it's history, both ancient and more recent but also brought clarity to some of the English language's popular expressions as well as important historic events that shaped the city and country.
The tour was very complete and I would not hesitate this guide. He will be part of your positive experience of Dublin.

Prior to this tour, I had all but given up on walking tours—I’ve just been disappointed so many times by walking tours that lacked historical depth and nuance. This tour restored my faith in them. Garvan fully delivered on a superb overview of Irish history (such as one can learn it in the course of ~4 hours), replete with historical detail and nuance, and his enthusiasm for the subject matter and love of Ireland is contagious. 10/10 would recommend.

We had the Fantastic Walking Tour of Dublin as a work event. We met John Caffrey at St Stephen's Green on quite a cold Dublin afternoon and immediately started to get some great insight into the history of Dublin and Ireland! The tour moved around the city and John was a great guide in both knowledge and humor. We would easily recommend John and the Dublin Tour Guide Company for future events!

Cathall brought 2000+ years of history to life by placing the buildings and geography of Dublin in their historic context. Tales of characters the exploits of characters from Finn McCool to Bono livened the tour. A debate on whether taking some current World leaders on a tour would be fun raised the tone over coffee.

I recently went on a guided tour of the city of Dublin, and I can honestly say our tour guide, John Caffrey, was one of the best I have ever encountered. His knowledge of the city's history was second to none, and had a real passion for sharing his insights.
We really appreciate John taking the time to cater the tour to us--we enjoyed our time with him.
