We enjoyed our tour but it was a bit too long for our 13 year old’s interest. The cathedral is beautiful and has great history.

This is an excellent tour to do if you are new to Dublin. Our guide did an excellent job maneuvering our group and providing some historical highlights of the sites we visited. I wish that the tour included the Book of Kells however but it had gone beyond the allocated time already. St. Patrick's was very interesting as well as the tour of Trinity College. We really enjoyed getting to know the city center and our guide provided excellent commentary along the way. Many thanks - it was wonderful!

Our tour guide Brian skillfully shepherded his group from the chaotic area in front of Trinity College, through the streets of Dublin, down to the lovely park in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral. He stopped several times along the route to point out sights, especially those with historical or architectural significance. Most of the tour was spent inside St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Brian provided extensive commentary on the many things to see within the church. Finally, he led us a few blocks down the street to the historic Dublin Castle. Brian was incredibly enthusiastic about the history of Dublin and of Ireland, talking about Vikings and Normans and Scottish lords, not to mention the Irish independence movement. In fact, he extended the time of the tour by at least 45 minutes. All in all, an excellent excursion.

The entire group loved this guide sorry, forgotten name. He was professional, witty, funny, excessively knowledgeable with very entertaining stories. On some tours you may feel they are dragging out but this tour was entertaining and so informative history wise, we didn't notice the hours slipping by. Guide was exceptionally passionate, encouraged questions and gave us all a challenge to ask a question they did not know the answer to, there was only 1 question from our group of 6 and trust us, there were many questions asked to which the guy knew the answers to, quite amazing really i.e. the guides knowledge and how they went about telling the historical stories. Don't miss this tour, thoroughly enjoyable.

Our Tour guide was Brian and he was perfect. He was Punctual and moved along at our pace. The tour was a perfect introduction to Dublin on our first day in town. We were also fortunate to be the only couple on the tour. This did not appear to dissuade our tour guide from doing his best. Throughout almost every step of the tour, Brian volunteered information in large qty's for the tours main attractions down to tid-bits on architecture, local shops, and even the history of the post boxes! We were very tired having arrived that morning, but could not have pictured a better way to kick off our trip.

Our guide was Neil. Great tour lots of history interwoven with walking through the city. Small group made it more personal too. St. Pats got a special behinds the scenes that was much appreciated. If you take this one you'll be happy with it and finish with a richer knowledge base of Irish history.
