Our tour guide Abie was billed as a comedian and he did not disappoint. This is an old house with its walls filled with Dublin memorabilia. Would have been dead boring without the amusing non-stop commentary of our able guide. The tour takes 50 minutes and was time well spent

As much a Comedy event as a historical tour, Abie was hilarious in his description of Irish history, close to 1000 years in less than an hour. Very impressive speed, lots of laughs, just a little warm on the upper floors but otherwise outstanding.

A great tour about Irish history narrated by a super funny straight-talking (unusually for Irish) comedian Abie. History made fun.
