I had been to Ireland in 2000 and this was the last afternoon of a 2 week adventure with family. While they sorted out their travel arrangements I wanted to go around Dublin a bit more. The tour guide was energetic and had some good stories and I learned some things I had not known. Obviously having been in the country for 2 weeks there were many things I did know. I thought the tour was a good introductory tour of Dublin.

(En) We had a wonderful time. Our guide Eoin is very friendly and the tour was really interesting. It last two hours but it seemed like less because it was very entertaining. Thank you ! Go Raibh Maith Agat. Helene (Fr) Nous avons passé un très bon moment. Notre guide Eoin est très sympa et la visite était très intéressante. La visite dure 2 heures mais on avait l'impression que ça durait moins longtemps car c'était très divertissant. Merci ! Go Raibh Maith Agat. Helene

Daragh was very friendly, engaging and knowledgable. In addition to all of the historical info he imparted he was also really helpful about pointing us in the right direction re pubs, restaurants and other cultural opportunities. I was somewhat surprised by Daragh’s very personal interpretation of Irish history. He was clearly very passionate in his views and I admired his conviction but i had expected a more objective narrative. Having said that I totally enjoyed the experience.
