My wife and I booked a tour with Sean last week. Just the two of us. Sean is charming, easy going, and knowledgeable. He takes the time to lay the basis for the tour, and to check out what your interests and knowledge level are in a chat at the beginning of the walk. Its obvious he enjoys Galway and the Irish culture that lives and breathes there. Besides tour content, he's personally familiar with restaurants, venues for traditional music and other points of interest. We tried many of his recommendations during our visit. They were always spot on. During our two week stay in Ireland we were in Belfast, Kilkenny, Kinsale, Galway and Dublin. We went on many tours, some of them pretty lame. Sean's tour was exceptional. I thoroughly recommend his walking tour.

I've been on various walking tours in a number of locations but this one is certainy one to catch if you have some free time in Galway city. Not only is this for tourists but locals will be amazed with how much they'll learn from this tour. It's a real eye-opener!

On top of this - it's a lot of fun!

I have been living in Galway for over a year and realised I never got to explore the city properly so I book myself on a tour of Galway by Foot.
This was such a great experience!
For an hour and a half Sean took us around the heart of the city explaining in depth the fascinating history of Galway's past, telling us captivating tales and historical facts delivered with a good sense of humour and fun! The time flew by!
I would defenitly reccomend this tour with out any hesitation.

During our travels throughout Ireland, we decided to give Galway a try. Having heard the city was a little behind the times, we went with some trepedation. Boy, what a surprise This is an awesome little city. We drove through and around the area and found it to be clean, and easy to navigate. They have a beautiful Cathedral that you can visit and we strongly advise you to do so. Then we went to the Pedestrian Only area and what a treat. They have blocks and blocks of things going on. Loads of restaurants, pubs, shops, and yes, a RUIN, right on the street! It is a very old castle. (small but very inviting). Walking was lots of fun. Old cobblestone streets with venders selling ice creams and clothing. Eyre Square is very close by. It is a charming park with people milling around everywhere. You are also very near the Spanish Arches that stand next to a charming river where you can settle down on a bench and watch the world go by. Go to Galway. You will have a wonderful time. Parking is easy and right on the street. No meters !!
