Cathal was fantastic! We loved the variety of activities - he sang, he acted out part of a play, he taught us a little Irish dancing, he took us through parts of a museum, through parks, around the city, and of course told the most amazing stories as we walked. He was extremely professional and knew loads of information, but at the same time was friendly and warm and easy to be with. He also had a good sense of how long to spend at each site - we love to learn and hear stories, but on some tours our backs and feet start to hurt from the constant standing while guides talk and talk and talk. Cathal kept us moving, all the while educating us about his beautiful city. Couldn't have been happier!

We were guided by Galvan Rushe. Imagine a knowledgeable, smart, sensitive and entertaining guide and Galvan will exceed those expectation. He was exceptionally well versed in the history of the sites we visited and of the culture of Ireland.
We are older than most tourists and Galvan understood how to pace the tour so we could enjoy our 5+ hours with him.
You can’t go wrong using his organization’s services.

Maitiu led my family and I on a fantastic walking tour of Dublin. His tour not only helped us get our bearings in the city, but he provided an engaging history of each location with details and nuances that we'd never have found in a book. Every street had a story, and quite often a song (sometimes in Gaelic)! His tour was a highlight of our Ireland trip, and really allowed us to start to get to know and feel comfortable in the city (mere hours after we had landed). You will not be disappointed!

We had a wonderful tour with Cathal. Very knowledgeable about Irish history, current affairs, pretty much anything that we wanted to talk about. To top it off, he is a fine tenor and sang for us in several appropriate locations...think Molly Malone and cockles and mussels.. Recommend highly
