A good primer on why and who the Irish are. The tour only covers a few blocks but very important blocks. Extremely interesting.

Highly recommend these tours!! Our guide, Gavin, was a recently-minted PhD from Trinity College. The tour was intellectually stimulating, lively, and creative. Gavin was skilled at addressing our specific interests.....architecture and literary history. The tour was a wonderful way to see the top sights of Dublin as well as the more tucked-away esoteric treasures.

This was a very interesting and informative tour. Gavin conveyed a passion for Dublin and its history without sounding parochial about it.
