Fascinating tour about traditional Irish tales that our wonderful tour guide, Tanya, brought to life. Bus stops you at beautiful locations which truly make the stories seem even more real. Loved every minute of it.

It is a good way to experience more cultural side of Ireland. The actor performed different traditional stories on the bus or to specific locations. Later we all sang together.

This tour is brilliant and a 'must do' when in Dublin. This is my second time on it and I couldn't recommend it more. The actors Dylan and Matt told us amazing stories!!

A great way to pass the time in Ireland, with tales of ancient kings and magical faeries. We had an excellent host, who got into the true spirit of storytelling and also had a genial chat in between the yarns.

I adored this tour!! It was worth every cent. Being told stories about mermaids and fairies and giants is quite possibly my new favourite past time. The tour is fabulous for both adults and children.

Wow, what a gem of a tour! Not a gaudy touristy/gimmicky act at all but some genuine, friendly entertainment. I was a solo traveler in Dublin and this was a great way to see places I never would have seen, hear stories I may never...More

This was an enjoyable afternoon! Storytelling was great and the atmosphere was pleasant! I especially enjoyed that the curtains are drawn upstairs on the bus so it is a surprise where they will be bringing you! When you step off the bus you have arrived...More
