If you only have a few days in Dublin this is a must do. I would recommend that you do it early in your visit. You will learn so much about the history of the oity and its people. It is a great primer for the rest of your visit. It is just as it says- a 2 hour walking tour and takes you to some of the most interesting parts of the city. We even went a little longer than that. Be sure to wear comfy shoes.

Donal was awesome and the tour lived up to all of its great reviews. We went over the two hours but enjoyed every minute. My 62 year old mother gave her her stamp of approval which is difficult to get. Highly recommend it.

This was an excellent and fascinating tour of Dublin's historical sights. Our tour guide, Donal, was superb, showing tremendous enthusiasm with great wit and humour. We were immersed in his tour for over 2 hours and learned so much about a city we've visited countless times. Highly recommended.

Well worth the money and the walk. Our tour guide Gavin was a post-doc in history at Trinity College and a native of Dublin, so his talk was insightful both by education and heritage. I only had one day in Dublin, but still don't regret spending what ended up being a 3-hour walking tour for only 12 euros!

This tour, like many others will show you the significant people, places, and timelines of Ireland's history. Also like other tours, you will probably leave both entertained and enlightened. What's different about this tour, I believe, is that you are on the ground, walking the streets, immersing yourself in the rich culture of Ireland. I've taken it twice - the first time was two years ago with Michael, and then again this past weekend with Donal. The guides are what make this tour outstanding.It's about 2 hours, rain or shine, so wear your comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella!
