Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very fortunate to spend the day touring Dublin with John. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly with an impressive knowledge of Dublin’s history and Irish culture, politics, history, art and current events. I highly recommend that anyone coming to Dublin spend a few hours walking the streets with John as their guide.

My wife and I recently relocated to Dublin, and we wanted to get our bearings and learn about our new home. So during October break we jumped on the DART with our two, somewhat reluctant teenagers and met Garvan in the City Center for a three-hour walking tour. What a great experience! Garvan is amazing. He is a knowledgable, passionate, and gifted storyteller who brought Dublin's history to life for us. What's more he won over our kids by engaging them directly and treating them like adults. By the time the tour was over we felt more at home in our adopted city, and we felt like we had made a friend. We would highly recommend the experience to anyone who wants the immersive experience of a tour without the large group dynamic.It was a great way to spend the day.

John Coffey provided a marvelous walking tour of Dublin. He was punctual, professional, energetic, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. We are visiting Ireland as a family of five (2 adults, 3 teenage kids) and he met us on Monday July 18 for a casual stroll through all of the key highlights of the City, including incredible stories on the City’s history and the people who make it so remarkable. The tour included St Stephen’s Green, Molly Malone, Trinity College, the historic post office, several bridges across the River Liffey, Temple Bar, Christ Church and Dublin Castle. We could not possibly have had a better host. Thank you, John!

We had the Fantastic Walking Tour of Dublin as a work event. We met John Caffrey at St Stephen's Green on quite a cold Dublin afternoon and immediately started to get some great insight into the history of Dublin and Ireland! The tour moved around the city and John was a great guide in both knowledge and humor. We would easily recommend John and the Dublin Tour Guide Company for future events!

I recently went on a guided tour of the city of Dublin, and I can honestly say our tour guide, John Caffrey, was one of the best I have ever encountered. His knowledge of the city's history was second to none, and had a real passion for sharing his insights.
We really appreciate John taking the time to cater the tour to us--we enjoyed our time with him.

My sister and I had an amazing morning with Carl the day after we arrived in Dublin. I only wish I could have recorded his outstanding account of Irish history and culture. He carefully curated our time together to reflect our interests and the fact that we had visited a few iconic places the day before. His passion and profound communication skills engaged us from start to finish, and created a superb platform for us to explore Ireland over the next two weeks. Thank you Carl!

We spent a beautiful morning around Dublin with our guide Cathal, who was really good at organizing the tour in such a way as to show us so many things, studying the route in order to maximize the experience and minimize travel between places. He told us many interesting stories, peculiarities, traditions, curiosities, filling the experience with many extras compared to a self-made tour such that in the rest of our little vacation we almost felt like we already knew the city. Totally recommended, this tour is an experience that truly allows you to immerse yourself in Dublin to the fullest and our guide Cathal was really unique!

We spent several hours today walking the fascinating streets and sights of Dublin with expert guide John Caffrey. We only had a couple of days in Dublin and this tour was the clear highlight. John is a great guy and his head is chock full of history and stories about Dublin, its hidden nooks, crannies and gems, all described in the greater context of whatever time period he is discussing. He is obviously passionate about what he does and he takes the tour but not himself seriously, and the result is a delight of a time. I have a much better feel for the city having now viewed it through the eyes of an exceptionally well-educated local. I cannot recommend this tour with this guide highly enough. Thank you, John and DTG tours.

Cathall brought 2000+ years of history to life by placing the buildings and geography of Dublin in their historic context. Tales of characters the exploits of characters from Finn McCool to Bono livened the tour. A debate on whether taking some current World leaders on a tour would be fun raised the tone over coffee.

We had a private tour with Lorien which was tailored to our individual interests. It was great and Lorien was very helpful and friendly. We started at the Dublin Archeology Museum, walked through the Temple Bar and stopped to relax at a tea shop along the way. We ended seeing both Christ Church and St. Patrick's Cathedrals. She is very friendly and knowledgeable.
