The guided tour with Daragh was excellent! He is a young agile man who is very knowledgeable about the subject matter of the tour and does a good job of explaining history to give you a good general knowledge of the history of Ireland and Dublin. He speaks loudly and clearly, and despite his accent, even a German with knowledge of English can understand almost everything. He is also open to questions directly or along the way, so nothing goes unanswered. A cheap experience for this price, so a tip should not be missing.

The historical tour with Daragh was really great and very informative. After a brief outline of Irish history to start with, he took us to various squares and figures (as statues) in the city and explained their historical significance. To get an insight into the Irish struggle for independence, the tour is highly recommended. Thank you Daragh!!

One of the most interesting and informative walking tours I’ve been on. Our guide, Daragh, was incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent orator who was clearly passionate about the history of Dublin, the city he grew up in. Would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to know more about the complex history of this beautiful city.
