A really informative tour that includes some of the less glamorous sides of Dublin history and the present situation. Great guide who shared his own story along with the history.

Derek was a great guide and very insightful about the Liberties. To hear his first hand experiences of social issues was really unique and interesting. I would highly recommend this tour!
