I have brought student groups on a lot of tours over the years, and I can say that Historical Insights are unquestionably the best: their guides are interesting, smart, funny people who know Dublin inside out, and who know how to communicate the complexities and nuances of Irish history to an audience without getting bogged down in the details. Highly recommended!

My daughter and I took this tour at dusk which turned out to be a very good time to go. Our guide was excellent! We learned a lot of the history of Dublin on this tour as well as getting cold chills a time or two. This is a not to be missed tour if you like history!

Donal Fallon gave this tour of hidden revolutionary Dublin. It was an excellent experience of Dublin's history and the people who made it. I would recommend this tour to visitors to out city and to all Dublin folk who have an interest in our history. Donal portrayed the events and characters with an enthusiasm and passion which made the history come alive. A tour not to be missed.

Take this tour if you can. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun. We definitely got a feel for Dublin having been on this tour. We hit the highlights and gained a lot of insight into the city. We showed our Rick Steves guidebook and received a discount.

My family and I had the pleasure of going on a tour through the history of Dublin led by Ms. O'Keefe, a Trinity College Phd. He was engaging, warm, and knowledgable. She conveyed the subject matter with humor and insight. Terrific time, terrific tour.
