Had a great afternoon tour with James. I’m Irish but still learned a lot. Was surprised to hear about all the modern movies and tv shows inspired by Irish mythology. Plenty of humour and fun along the way to keep it interesting!!

The tour was insightful, informative and interesting! But the best part of it was by far our tour guide Emer! She had a lot of energy and a lot of jokes. Here love for the irish(Dublin’s) history was contagious! By far the best tour guide!

Energic guide, súper funny and great tips. Best of Dublín so far! Many historical and curious data made the tour something fantastic. His great sense of humour was key to me liking the city.
