Ed and Caroline Lee from Florida. What was supposed to be a two hour tour, turned into four and could have gone on for days. We were captivated and transported back to the days of Wilde and many other Irish writers. Oisin became our new best friend. Intelligent and passionate, he told us the back stories of streets, buildings, people and everything in between. Ed went to medical school at Trinity : a born and bred Irishman. Oisin showed us a side of Dublin that Ed had no idea existed. Oisin brought the tour alive by throwing in poetry readings and sections from Wilde's books. His passion for keeping Oscar Wilde's work and persona alive are infectious and real. We visited Swenys, some landmark pubs, and some old stomping grounds of the Irish greats that we would never have found on our own. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. I could go on, but seriously, the only way to experience Dublin's literary wealth is to take a tour with Oisin. Enjoy!!

We were lucky enough to have Oisin take us on a private 2 hour tour. He was utterly brilliant and took us on an amazing and fascinating trip around the sights of Dublin connected with Oscar Wilde and his writing. Oisin was passionate and knowledgeable and his love for Wilde was obvious! He brought it to life with all his little stories. Honestly couldnt recommend it highly enough, thank you Oisin!

I did the tour with a group of friends in November. As a relatively new resident of Dublin I found the tour both interesting and insightful and certainly gave me some knowledge of Dublin Landmarks through the eyes of Oscar Wilde as he would have immersed himself in the culture and history of the city during his life. I particularly enjoyed the guided tour of Trinity college In relation to Oscar Wilde’s period of academic study at the world renowned University. Oisin, the tour guide was highly knowledgeable, friendly and witty. I would highly recommend the tour to tourists and Dubliners alike. Shane

I did this tour a few weeks back with friends and would highly recommend. Taking you around where Oscar lived worked and studied gives you a new perspective on the man he was and the man the Ireland would help him become. Delivered enigmatically by Oisín, this tour is a real gem.

I did the Oscar Wilde walking tour on Saturday with some friends, I really enjoyed the tour, Oisin was a great tour guide. We listened to loads of different facts about oscars life, where he lived and what he got up to In Dublin, I really enjoyed listening to the poems Oisin read out, it gave me a good insight into oscars life here. We stopped off in Sweeney’s cemist to listen to a reading too. Oisin was very informative on the tour I would recommend this tour to locals and tourists when visiting Dublin. Really enjoyed, and the rain held off too ...thanks Oisin.. John
