Was recommended by family who had done this a few months ago, so we decided to do this as well. The actors were absolutely amazing. They never broke character, even when people were walking by and trying to get them to. I learned a lot about what happened and It was fun and interesting during it. I would recommend this... More

Myself and my son went on this tour on Sunday afternoon. I can honestly say that this was the highlight of our weekend in Dublin! The whole experience was fantastic. The actors who recounted the story of the 1916 Easter rising told it in such a way that it was brought to life in front of your eyes. Everyone on... More

Once the performance was over and I digested what I saw, I was rearing to take the tour again. I was nervous to take part or disrupt their work but later I wished I had interacted more or shown more support. It is an awe inspiring experience where you have the chance to interact with people with their minds in... More

It was a whole two hours of dramatic theatre on a bus. Not what I was expecting at all, I loved it and I don't really go to the theatre. Highlight of our Dublin trip.

Amazing tour for lovers of Irish History. The actors were absolutely brilliant. You really could believe you were back in 1916 in the middle of all that happened in the city. We got off the bus at St Stevens Green and again at Dublin Castle where the actors reamined in character. Even though the centenary year is almost at a... More

I was slightly dubious at first but so glad we went. A great way to learn the history of the bloody battle of 1916. The actors emotional portrayal of events is stunning. We combined the trip with the GPO tour.

This tour was absolutely amazing, the actors were outstanding and made sure everyone was immersed in the story. Such a great way to learn the story, much more effective than just listening to a talk or reading about it, these actors get you involved in it! Great start to our Dublin trip and highly recommend it!

We all really enjoyed it and the actors were brilliant and created a great atmosphere where you were taken back in time. We got off the bus too a couple of times which was really good and even outdoors the actors stayed in character and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, the whole team helped create the atmosphere and bring to life the events of Easter 1916 from both sides of the rebellion. The actors were superb, with Leanna producing an emotional performance. The best 15 Euros you can spend!
