Brought around the city by Aine, we visited some of the most well-known attractions plus many more unique and unusual sights. The 2 hour tour flew by and we learned so much from our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Thanks for the experience!

Arrived on a possible rainy day in Dublin , booked Pat Liddy's tour.
After meeting Pat Liddy, we were introduced to our guide, another Pat.
He was easy to listen to, flexible in answering questions and really giving us a different tour.
Pat related many of the stories to his own lifetime, which was excellent. 2-3 hours of easy walking went by very fast.
I would highly recommend this tour as apposed to the others who seemed to be overcrowded and not as personal.

This was a great tour with a very knowledagble and entertaining guide. He was keen to chat to all the customers between 'stops' on the tour and made our morning very enjoyable. I have been to Dublin many times but now I feel I know much more about the city and the history, not just the pubs and the Guinness!!! Well worth money.

Wherever Pat Liddy gets his tour guides from, you’d imagine it must be from the high end of the market - David Wright took my wife, my doubtful 15 year old son and me on a tour of Dublin that may or may not have lasted over two hours - we were having such a good time that however long it was, it wasn’t long enough.

David is a gentleman through and through and even the sceptical 15 year old loved every minute of it, We learned about literature, politics, geography, history and more. Visiting Sweney’s pharmacy and getting serenaded as gaeilge by the inimitable PJ was a highlight.

All in all, a real treat. I’d recommend David as a most excellent host, and Dublin as a city that’s worthy of him!

We went w Michael S on the Dublin highlights and walking tour. He was such a great guide. Very information, friendly and passionate about his Irish heritage. Ask nicely and he might even sing for your group! Well worth it.

Paddy F was our guide for the 4 hours who was very engaging and informative. It was great seeing Dublin through Paddy’s humorous eyes.

We were extremely pleased with the office for setting this up for us. Our plans had to change at the last minute due to the Pope's visit and Cian was very helpful in arranging for us to be part of the morning tour. We arrived several minutes late due to road closures but were lucky to find the tour which was pointed out to us by a helpful hop on/hop off staff because the tour had left, even though Cian had reassured us that he would tell the guide to wait. We felt the tour guide had a lot of information to offer but it was extremely difficult to hear him, and we felt that he made little effort to ensure that everyone in the group, which was over 20 people, could hear. We realize that this may have been an unusual day due to the crowds and detours needed, but we did not get the usual sense of welcome, enthusiasm or interest in questions that we have come to expect with such tours. Perhaps having a microphone and/or individual audio communication should be considered, We had this on a tour in Belfast and it contributed greatly to our experience. We also found our guide to have some "attitude" that we were certainly not expecting.

We were on a 22-hour layover from another flight, so we didn't have much time. We had tried to get an overview of the city the night before by walking around (and visiting pubs), but we never saw some of the more interesting streets and sites that were shown on the tour. It really made us want to come back for a longer visit to Dublin.

The history also put everything into context for us, and the guide livened it up with some humor - tastefully applied!

We highly recommend this tour.

The hotel was recommended by rick Steve for its central location. The amenities were adequate, but uneven stairs and tiny room with creaking floor as well as the position of the toilet (can use the sink at the same time) are put offs. At 129 euro w/o meals is fair price, but I had expected better accommodation.
