“Bloomsday tour interesting and informative”
Reviewed by James from Calgary, Canada on June 25th, 2013 It helps to be interested in the book Ulysses to enjoy this tour but I went with family who had not read the book and they enjoyed the tour as well. It was a good walking tour and Pat knows Dublin and James Joyce well. He is clearly well-known as he goes along the streets of Dublin. He gives some good background and I came away with more appreciation of the book, a better overview of Dublin and some ideas as to what I wanted to pursue further. The only suggestion for improvement would be to take the tour past some place where there are public toilets as the tour is over 2 hours long...
“Thoroughly enjoyable walk with someone who clearly loves their job.”
Reviewed by Teresa from Drogheda, Ireland on June 25th, 2013 A very enjoyable and informative session. I see Dublin in a whole new light now.
“Thorough, enjoyable guide through James Joyce's Dublin with Pat Liddy.”
Reviewed by Ralph from Chicago, United States on June 19th, 2013 This walking your was a special event celebrating Bloomsday, June 16th. Pat Liddy was an entertaining, energetic and informative raconteur throughout. He even did double duty as a speaker/actor, reading appropriate passages from Ulysses.
“Very witty and entertaining guide”
Reviewed by Monika from Bray, Ireland on June 19th, 2012 I am going to return to try the other walks with Pat Liddy and his guides. A thoroughly entertaining, very informative tour, peppered with personal stories and witty remarks. I have got much more than I paid for - thank you very much for all the extra info about Joyce and Dublin. Unmissable.
