We went to the Easter Rebellion tour with Liam last Monday and were so impressed that we followed this with the Michael Collins tour with Rory the next day. Anyone who wants to get a feel for the sad history of Ireland at that time should go on these tours. These guys are highly knowledgeable and put in a lot... More

A superb introduction to the Irish independence movement. Liam is a very articulate, engaged and engaging guide with encyclopaedic knowledge of the 1916 Easter Uprising and the men, women and events that gave birth to it. Don't miss it when in Dublin. Brilliant!

I can't recommend this highly enough. The tour is a serious, fascinating, entertaining experience that takes you to heart of the 1916 Easter Rising via Dublin landmarks that were integral to the rebellion. It starts with an introduction to modern Irish history before moving on to the events of 1916, examining the rising from both sides as well as looking... More

spent a few hours with tour guide Owen doing tour yesterday.met in the International bar ,after a short introduction talk,set off around Dublin.Owen was very informative and knew his stuff on Irish history.a lot of walking so wear appropriate footwear,luckily it was sunny and warm,but bring waterproofs as Dublin isn't known for its sunny weather.

Starts by covering all the factors and facts leading up to and surrounding the Rebellion. From the United Irishman to Young Ireland to the IRB, our guide Liam wove it all together into the circumstances and events of Easter Week 1916. Each stop on the walk added to the narrative and Liam provided stories within the story and pointed out... More

My visit in June was the 3rd time I've done this tour and each time I've learned something new or gotten a slightly different perspective. The guides are just wonderful! Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject. They all seem to find some way to inject some humor into the tour as well, which makes it fun. Not a strenuous... More
