The tour was a non stop roller coaster of touching moments, humour and a century of Dublin history. The guide was brilliantly knowledgeable bringing the story to life. We even got a souvenir book they were selling on board written by the guide who signed it for my father. Well worth €15 and better value than other Easter Rising themed... More

This is a very good way to learn about Irish history, specifically the 1916 rising and as a bonus see the city and find your bearings. A great accompaniment to this would be the 1916 Museum in the GPO. I brought 10 and a 12 year old boys and they really enjoyed it. It is very interactive and you hop... More

This tour was surprisingly good! It begins with Amy portraying a young woman involved in the rising as it is happening. She is joined by Matt, who portrays a volunteer in the conflict. Their stories are based upon actual accounts of people who were involved in the events of 1916. With stops including the GPO, Moore Street and Richmond Barracks... More

My daughter and I took this tour, earlier today. At first, I wasn't sure what would transpire. There is a recording setting the mood for the tour. Suddenly, a young lady appeared as a woman actively involved in the rebellion, and began retelling her "experiences" during the uprising. She was followed by a young man who, in turn, recounted his... More

The coach tour of the 1916 rising was absolutely excellent. I really enjoyed it for the Historical. The guide was very knowledgeable and I have to say he had some funny stories. It was great to visit the land marks . Totally enjoyable.

Eddie ran three tours back to back for our Sixth Class students. We couldn't praise him highly enough. He has endless patience! The children were entertained and educated and the teachers all loved it! Highly recommended.

This tour was fabulous. Our guide Eddie was fantastic and a true expert on the subject. The tour is not at all political and portrays the stories of the men and women behind the rising. It was by far the most informative 1916 tour that we experienced and the least gimmicky. Thanks for a great day.
