In early March, my husband Jim and I took a full-day walking tour of Dublin with Kevin. It was wonderful. Kevin has an amazing knowledge of the city and its culture, politics, literature, history, art and landmarks. He took us to a terrific and non-touristy pub that is one of his favorites. Kevin also gave us recommendations for several great restaurants and for Dublin places of interest to see on other days of our stay. In the weeks before the trip, he sent us suggestions for Irish literature by contermporary and past authors and links to important news websites as well as ideas for one-day excursions. Most of all, we totally enjoyed Kevin's company. Besides being knowledgeable and interesting, he has a wonderful sense of humor.

Our friend found Kevin through TripAdvisor and booked him for a 3-hour tour of Trinity & some of the surrounding areas in Dublin. Our friend got sick and couldn't complete the tour, but my husband and I continued around with Kevin and we loved him. He's very knowledgeable about Ireland's history. He is very personable and friendly. We highly recommend Kevin!

Dear Amy. A sincere thank you for your kind words on the tour. I'm delighted you enjoyed it. Yes it was a great pity that your friend Jennifer was unable to accompany us on the the day but she and Garret will hopefully revisit these shores. Hopefully too you and your good husband will act as my ambassadors over Stateside!! Until our paths cross again. Warmest regards. Kevin.

My husband and I had limited time in Dublin so we booked a private tour with Kevin. We learned so much more about the city, the culture, and politics with him as our guide than we would have on our own. He is very knowledgable on a wide variety of topics and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He also gave us great suggestions on restaurants and other interesting activities to make the most use of our time in Dublin.

My wife and I had a wonderful 3+ walking tour of Dublin with Kevin which we thoroughly enjoyed. I am a first generation Irish-American (Mom is from Cork), but never learned in-depth Irish history. The tour, including Kevin’s patience with our questions, went a long way towards filling that knowledge gap. If your interest is in a large group shallow tour, please consider other tour options besides Kevin. If your interest is in a great dialogue with a knowledgeable tour guide, Kevin is your go-to person.

Dear Chris. I am deeply humbled on reading your lovely comments on the tour. It is a great honour and privilege to welcome guests to this wonderful city and to pass on what little knowledge I have to help you  achieve a greater  insight into and understanding of Ireland past and future. All in an uncomplicated, enjoyable manner. If that's possible with Ireland!! A sincere thank you to you and your good wife or taking the time to write your beautiful words. It means an awful lot to me. I feel will our paths will cross again and until that day,  take good care of yourselves. Warmest regards. Kevin
