We had a great tour with Tim today. He was able to teach us about hundreds of years of history in 2 hours, and do it in such a way that my two teenage boys were engaged the entire time. Would strongly recommend!!!!

Hi, the queue for the Book of Kells can be very long so probably try to time yourself to get there earlyish. The historical tour doesn't deal with the Book. And no, there wasn't any tour of Dublin Castle state apartments... More
