What an enjoyable way to hear about Ireland's inventors. Patrick is an enthusiastic, engaging guide who makes the tour memorable through quirky tales of elephants, needles and chocolate ... a perfect way to spend time learning about ideas that have had real impact in the world we live in today. Cannot recommend it enough ☺️ Mary Mulvihill's book 'Ingenious Dublin', is a great read after the tour. She created Ingenious Ireland tours and sadly passed away recently. Patrick is now carrying the mantle, so please support these tours to keep them going for locals and visitors alike. http://ingeniousireland.ie/walking-tours/

Although the weather was horrible - very cold and rainy, Patrick was fantastic. He has a PhD in Geology and is an engaging, fun and knowledgeable guide. I've done walking tours all over the world and this was one of the very best. He presents the image of a brilliant/mad scientist which is absolutely perfect for this tour. You will be amazed by Patrick and by the incredible and surprising impact Irish scientists have had on the world.

We were in Dublin the week of St Patrick's Day, and did the Ingenious Dublin tour. It was one of the most interesting, entertaining and enjoyable tours we've ever done. We walked around the heart of Dublin with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide Patrick Roycroft, as he told fascinating stories about many of the brilliant Irish minds that have made great contributions to science, medicine and mathematics. A great way to see Dublin, and learn something along the way! Highly recommend.
