The tour guide I had was a PhD student in history and had grown up in Dublin. He was very well informed, charming (without trying to be a comedian) and had a voice that... More

Tour took about 3 hours. Best part of the tour was meeting a few awesome people on the tour! We ended up all hanging out for the rest... More

We had Donal Fallon as our FANTASTIC tour guide. We learned loads or Ireland history and enjoyed every minute. We were a family of 5, grandmother, and two adult children. The walking is not strenuous at all.
