He sang songs (great singer). He answered all of our questions. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants and pubs. When the book of Kells... More

We booked the 5 hour walking tour of Dublin to see almost all of Dublin! Maitiu was an excellent guide- very knowledgeable and great personality. He explained things well and showed us the best of Dublin. He answered questions and covered key sites but was flexible with time spent in areas and personalized the tour for us. We would highly...

Lucky me - I had a few hours on my own in Dublin, so my husband arranged for me to have a 3 hour walking tour with Cathal. I can't imagine a more enjoyable introduction to the city! Cathal is incredibly knowledgeable about the history, cultural heritage, literature, mythology and popular folklore of Dublin and Ireland. He's also a charming... More

My husband and I chose to do the 4 hour pub tour with Garvan. We went to 4 less-touristy pubs in Dublin to avoid the crowds. We also stopped into an ice cream shop for some treats. Along the way, Garvan told us interesting stories about the places we were visiting as well as pointing out cool art and spots... More

I spent a day with Cathal, who was chock full of interesting tidbits about Dublin. He is an excellent guide, who clearly loves Dublin and knows Irish history very well. I found him to be warm, gracious, entertaining, and considerate. It was a wonderful day, and Cathal was an excellent and knowledgeable companion. Highly recommended.

Started off at Tara Street and stopped in the unlikeliest of places where Matthew our walking guide dispersed intimate and fascinating information about general and less well known aspects of Irish and particularly Dublin history, specialising in the history surrounding the 1913 lockout and the Easter rising.Ended up in the spectacular gardens behind Dublin castle and was amazed at regular...

We had only one day in Dublin, so booked a personal 5-hour walking tour with Fergal. Unsure what to expect, we were very pleased that Fergal was very kind, very thoughtful, and very knowledgeable. We saw all the highlights of Dublin in our five hours, and Fergal customized the tour to our interests, covering everything from history and politics to... More

Garvan has done a wonderful job for 2 small groups of clients and in the last month and now he will be my go to person anytime I have clients/friends in Dublin. Whether it is a 3 or 5 hour tour you need he makes it fun and interesting. He knows his history!

Great tour with Garvan! We only had one day in Dublin and didn't want to waste it wandering aimlessly. So glad we booked the walking tour! Our family with 3 kids learned so much about Ireland and Dublin. Garvan was knowledgable and engaging. The kids enjoyed his stories and we all had a good time.

We reserved the 3-hour tour of Dublin. Our reservation and confirmations were fast, efficient and easy. Lisa was our tour guide, and I can't imagine a better experience. She was thoroughly informed about the history and landmarks of Dublin, and was also super fun! Book this if you want a great tour of a great city!
