Excellent introduction to Dublin.

Our group were treated to an extremely interesting and informative walk around Dublin on a very cold but sunny morning. Our guide, I think it was Dara, was brilliant. For a first time visitor, it was a great tour. It gave us all the information needed with some humorous moments along the way.

lots of talk with the walk

Weather was dry (good for Ireland) but very cold. The guide was good even if he did go on about the English.We had a 2 hour walk through the streets of Dublin and lots of important buildings pointed out to us. A walk that is good to take at the beginning of a trip to Dublin as one can then follow up on the guides suggestions .

Great intro to the city, friendly guide

Our group was fairly large, but our guide, Michael was good about keeping us together and making himself heard. He was very friendly, and had a satisfying answer to any question we asked. He knew a lot about the history of the city, and I also felt I got a local feel of Dublin and Ireland from his tour as well.
