We loved our guide, Dan. He had a nice clear voice, he was understandable and also very funny. He made our city tour special! Many historical data, may elements about life and temperament of Irish people.

A very good way to spend a couple of hours getting an introduction to the Southside. Our guide Eoin was informative but also engaging and amusing.

We typically give 10 euro each for the free walking tours wherever we take them. We are a couple. Sometimes we use US dollars if that is all we have for currency instead. It is a bit less depending on currency rate.
