Talented, knowledgeable Fiona Dalton, in her character, flexible, enthusiastic and refreshing. I learned more about Dublin ( and reasons to come back and see more semi hidden treasures) than I learned in my last four trips here. Fiona is a certifiably professional singer and actress overflowing with ideas and passion for her work. We almost didn’t notice the rain. I highly recommend especially early in a trip because it would shape the whole outlook on what to see.

The pub crawl was so much fun! We went to a few different pubs with different vibes but they were all equally as fun! Our guide Kieran made it all so much better, he was fun and funny and made the experience so much better!

Definitely recommended !!!!!!! The history, the enthusiasm, the music .... all concentrated in a single experience!

My guide Keith, is the best guide ever. I really wish to go with the same guide again for the bar crawl.

Fantastic opportunity to explore Irish culture. Loved it!
