Jim knows his stuff about Galway, he led us and one other on a great and safe tour of the city, venturing in and out of some of the major sights. A great way to get to quickly know the city centre, where to go and what to do.

Brian Nolan’s tour of Galway city is pure gold. Our group of about 30 choristers enjoyed a potent mix of history, lore, humour and craic while checking out all that Galway has to offer. Memorable!

Why thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review. I got a great kick from leading your group around Galway. I haven't had as much fun on a walking tour in a long time, and your singing was sublime. My absolute pleasure. Congrats on your choir's 25th anniversary and thank you for coming to Galway to celebrate it. Brian

We had a blast walking around with Brian Nolan for the hour. Very entertaining guy who made the tour interesting. We had ten people in our group - one of the trip highlights!

Hey Mark... I was 'almost' sorry Connacht beat Gloucester...in the ebbing seconds of the game, heartbreak, and joyful, depending on which side one was on...meantime I was out searching for my buddy, who was found today, so another reason to be cheerful. Your group were the highlight of my month...fun, interesting, challenging...so, rugby and King Richard III aside, thanks a mill for coming on the tour...and perhaps we will meet again...in the playoffs...ever optimistic us west of Ireland folk. Glad you had fun in Galway. regards. Brian

Brian was a wonderful guide to take us through the streets of Galway. He is very knowledgeable and engaging. We hit if off immediately with our Westchester NY connections.He shared with us the history of Galway past and present. Took us to many sites and gave great recommendations for food and drink. Don't miss the opportunity to see Galway through Brian's eyes.

You are too kind...hey it was great to connect the dots to you guys...Yonkers and Westchester where I'd lived for so long. I am delighted that you enjoyed our tour...despite the winter weather we did cover a lot of ground. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your Ireland trip as much. :Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Thank you for your lovely review. Brian
