Our guide grew up in The Claddagh and really knows his city. We saw hidden gems (like parts of the original medieval city walls displayed on the lower floor of a shopping mall - we would never have seen this on our own). We also went into a pottery store to see samples of full and half fireplaces in an Elizabethan house, our guide knew all the stories and historical significance of the churches and market houses and even the house of a James Joyce paramour. Great value - super introduction to an amazing city.

Brian Nolan does an excellent job. You can tell that he loves the city and people of Galway. It is evident that they love him, too.

Brian Nolan was a great tour guide! I loved his stories and his sense of humor. Got to know about Galway in a great way with my study abroad group, thanks Brian!

Our group from Real Irish Travel enjoyed the walking tour led by Brian. Due to Brian's advice, we ended our tour enjoying a pint at O'Donnel's pub. It was grand!

On the 14th of April myself and my two children (12 and 14), did a walking tour of Galway city with Brian Nolan. It was a fantastic tour. Weaving the current political topics, current land marks, past world events with the history of the city, all the while keeping the group engaged and moving through the streets of Galway, Brian Nolan is the Pied Piper of walking tour guides. No one noticed the slight drizzle and over cast weather. Book this tour at the start of your stay in Galway, you get more out of your stay.
