A great tour, fun and very informative. We learned about the 1916 rebellion but also many other aspects of Dublin. Meeting point at the International Bar where thet serve a very good Irish stew for 6,50€ if you're hungry after the tour.

This was an incredibly fun and enriching experience. I was truly impressed with the knowledge and passion of Liam the guide for the day. He took us on a whirlwind tour of the sights and sounds of the 1916 Rebellion and eh struggle Ireland endured while seeking independence. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in digging deeper... More

Myself and husband did this tour today Sunday 21st and we were not disappointed. Lorcan was our guide and was excellent. I'm sure there are not too many people 20 years into the job who are still as passionate as he is. There were at least 30 in our group maybe more. Usually , according to Lorcan 2 guides are... More

This was amazing, I knew very little about the 1916 uprising tour and came away from this tour overwhelmed. It's a free tour so you can pay what you like which I really appreciated and the tour guide did a fantastic job! Not only did we learn a lot about the uprising itself but also were taken on a great... More

Being the centennial of the 1916 uprising, we thought it only appropriate to go on the Rebellion Walking Tour. Our guide was very well informed. I would describe is as a very information dense tour. Lots of information was presented. I loved it. My young adult children grew a little weary.

Our party of ten from Northern Ireland joined this tour on a very pleasant Saturday morning. Being from Northern Ireland we have a fairly good understanding of events both before and after 1916 ....but with various perspectives of the events which shaped our history. Our Guide RORY impressed every one of our party with a detailed fulsome non-stop detailed synopsis... More

This tour was hands down one of the best I've ever done, in the world. Lorcan was incredibly passionate about this topic and had a lot of fun with the tour. Could not recommend more!

Really enjoyed this interesting and entertaining tour and would highly recommend it. Our tour guide was excellent and gave a great overall explanation o,f not only events contributing to and resulting from the 1916 rising, but also many other facets of Irish history. This wasn't a tour guide reeling off a scripted presentation- he really knew his stuff and was... More

Did the tour today in the drizzling rain! Owen the tour guide did a fabulous job keeping us all enthralled and interested, despite the awful weather! Very informative, excellent use of humour and great value for money. We booked online with no problems. A great way to see sights and learn the history, plus a few other little facts thrown... More
