Over the course of our afternoon walk, Kevin shared with us his pride and enthusiasm for the city of Dublin. His depth of knowledge really enriched our experience and he tailored his tour to our interests, showing us fascinating spots that we would never have found on our own. His love of Yeats poetry led to a moment I know I will never forget. We are Americans and we enjoy spending time with local people wherever we go, hoping to get a glimpse of what it’s like to come from a completely different background. Our time with Kevin was a highlight of our visit.

Listen Now Again: Kevin is Probably the best walking tour guide in the whole of Ireland. As an added bonus, Kevin will quote from his repertoire of great Irish Poets, W.B Yeats, Becket, Brendan Keneally, And the man himself Seamus Heaney - Do not be afraid, if you are interested in GAA or Rugby Football, you are in for a special treat. Our tour came alive when Kevin realized we also had strong connections with Counties Sligo and Mayo - NOLI TIMERE - Kevin is so informed it is unreal . . . . I have no hesitation in rating Kevin my #1 tour guide not only in Ireland but all of northern Europe., Thomas P. McCabe & family.

For the quintessential Irish experience, everyone should go on one of Kevin’s tours. We started at trinity college, experienced the book of Kells, all the while listening to history and tidbits of Irish culture. We also stopped in a bookstore with roots dating back to James Joyce. We’ve been coming to Dublin for a few years now, and this has been the first time we got a local feel of the culture. For those seeking a slow and thoughtful pace, this tour is perfect.

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.
