The historical walking tour comes highly recommended from me. The guide for this tour Tommy presented a detailed and yet entertaining view of Irish history while touching upon the key milestones. The tour itself covers significant ground by looking at many of the important buildings and sites in Dublin. Tommy was able to share the history in a story telling approach which made the huge variety of facts more lucid and easy to understand. The pace of the walk is moderate and the group was able to keep pace with him. The walking tour also allows one to take in the sights of the city at a comfortable pace and allows you to appreciate how the city came to be. I thoroughly enjoyed it and give it a big thumbs up!
This was a fabulous walking tour! Good pace, great information and the guide was absolutely outstanding!! We went toward the end of our stay, but I would do it earlier if you can. The time just flew by and ended on the perfect note-where Handel's Messiah was first performed publicly! Do not miss this tour!
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and added occasional wit to his tour. I think we selected the wrong tour for us, however. I was looking for more of a sightseeing tour and this was definitely historical. The tour guide did indicate that it was historical and not sightseeing at the onset of the tour, I guess I didn't realize just how historical he meant.
