Our guide for the tour on 16th July was Domhnaill. His passion & exuberance for the subject in question was a breath of fresh air. Being Irish, we've always been interested in our history & the 1916 rising against the British was a monumental event in Ireland's past. The tour was not what we had expected in the sense that it covered the backgrounds of some of the main characters & how they used their worldwide connections to enable the rebellion to occur. I particularly loved the story of Pearse's sword required for the inevitable surrender! Surely this tour must be a high on the priority list for anyone visiting Dublin.

Had a wonderful time learning about the events of the 1916 Uprising. Lorcan was an amazing raconteur and kept everyone engaged and entertained. What a great way to learn about Irish history! This tour is not to be missed! my husband and i can't thank Lorcan enough for making the events of the 1916 rebellion come alive.

Very entertaining and informative. Locran brought to life the true struggles of the Irish and the strength of the men and women of Ireland to overcome and rise above for their freedom. Locran has an amazing quick wit. The 2 hours flew by. We could have listened to him all day.

I could not recommend this walking tour more. The detailed knowledge of our guide - Rory - was phenomenal and the presentation lively making the events of over a hundred years ago real. If you want to know more about this period of Irish (and British) history this is a must do.
