Patrick is remarkably able to impart his profound knowledge about the exciting story of Irish Republicanism with enthusiasm. Great experience for people who appreciate a sophisticated history lesson at actual event places.

Liam our guide was very informative with a wealth of knowledge. The tour brought buildings and locations, which we had read about to life. An excellent and impressive way to spend a couple of hours. For anyone with an interest in The Rising.

Excellent tour. Highly recommend everyone to take this tour. Our guide Padraig was brilliant, his knowledge and detail of the events leading up to the rising is first class. I could have listened to him all day. Will definitely be back again.
