It was just a disappointment of the day. I have had several tours recently, with some of them being free of charge, but they were much more informative and interesting than this one, which costed me 16 euro. I was really excited before the tour...More

We had a really informative tour from the Dutch/Irish Laura who just loves us Englanders 😀. I loved seeing the U2 1987 Cardiff Arms Park poster for the Joshua Tree tour as 'I was there'! 🎤🎼

Grainne was a fabulous guide. She was funny and informative. You see old U2 ticket stubs, original records from the Boomtown Rats and Van Morrisson. There is even an area to try out drums and guitar. Well worth the trip.More

Fab tour! Laura is an expert on Irish rock and had lots of personal stories to go with the tour. Great chronology, well paced and open for questions. She deserves at least 2 pints!
