The 1916 Rebellion walking tour was a great way to learn about significant events in Irish history.

A small group of us gathered at the International Bar in Wicklow Street, where we were met by historian and author Lorcan Collins.

He's a witty, clever man who entertained as much as he informed.

After a brief introduction we took to the streets of Dublin, stopping at various points for explanations about what occurred in the 1916 uprising.

We saw bullet holes in the Post Office building where the Republican troops ensconced themselves and proclaimed Irish independence.

We saw where one of the leaders, Michael O'Rahilly, died in a doorway after leading a charge to evacuate the GPO.

Seeing where these events occurred and having them explained by someone who's knowledgeable and passionate about them, was a thoroughly worthwhile experience.

We walked by the International Bar and decided to take a chance on the 1916 walking tour. It was great! We started with a 10 mins explanation of the 1916 rising before taking off for a 2 hours walking tour around Dublin. Lorcan is very knowledgeable and very nice to answer all the questions that you might have! It was a very pleasant tour and I would definitely recommend it. Michela & Alan

My partner booked a surprise birthday weekend away for me/us to Dublin. Neither of us had been before so on arrival we decided to go on a bus tour which was good. However, the next day we decided to try this walking tour having picked up a leaflet from the Information Centre. And aren't we glad we did! The guy doing the tour, Lorgan, was awesome! He was very funny but wow did he know his stuff. He's been doing these tours for 18 years so an expert. We followed the tour by going to Kilmainham Jail and visiting the Guinness Storehouse but both of us are of the same opinion - the tour was the best!!!! Thank you to Lorgan :)

Loran is so entertaining and informative that the 90 minutes of our walking tour passed in no time. We had a group of 42 young people between 14 and 18 with us and they were enthralled, asking loads of interesting questions. This is something you shouldn't miss in Dublin.

This tour was a great experience. It brought the human side of the struggle in 1916 to life. Lorcan is an excellent guide, friendly, informative, funny and incredibly knowledgeable. We were impressed and can only recommend this tour. Questions were encouraged and dots were joined.
