Excellent walking tour by a very knowledgeable guide!Reviewed by: Ruth M, December 2013
Don't debate, just go on this. A group of about twenty or so guides, mostly post grad students take it in turns to walk you through the history of Dublin with some enchanting tales. Like, why the Bank of Ireland building (formerly the Irish Parliament) has no windows - to avoid a tax imposed on windows. That was the origin of the phrase "daylight robbery" probably, and maybe was the only "paneless" tax in history (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). Our guide, the day we went, was the delightful and knowledgeable Donal Fallon. If you have the good fortune to have him as a guide, make sure to congratulate him on St Pats winning the league in 2013, after 14 years of utter futility. Emphasize the futility bit, he'll take it in good stride. Highly recommended tour!Reviewed by: William F, October 2013
Very good!Reviewed by: john f, October 2013
We actually left this tour at the 2nd stop..our guide was definitely a student of history and we felt like we were in a fairly dull lecture. Nice young man but really in love with the sound of his own voice.Reviewed by: Kate, November 2013
The guide was very knowledgeable, but it was a lot more listening than seeing for our particular taste.Reviewed by: James N, October 2013
