Arran's 2+ hour tour of a selection of the paintings in the Gallery was outstanding - he has a wealth of knowledge and a wonderfully structured and enthusiastic way of imparting it to a group - we both enjoyed the tour immensely and now have a deepened base of knowledge to appreciate the treasures of the Gallery . Highly recommended.

Thank Hugh C

Arran was an excellent tour guide. His passion and knowledge in this area made this a wonderfully insightful, fun and educational tour. I have been into the National Gallery a few times before, but I am so excited to go in again with new eyes and really savour paintings in a new way. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Judith

This tour was fascinating, fun, educational, and I would highly recommend it. I’ve been to the National Gallery before, but I’ll enjoy my future visits even more now with new eyes.

I took the Hugh Lane to Broadstone recently and it was truly excellent. Aaron our guide was very knowledgeable across a broad range of subjects relating to Dublin’s history across 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries. As a Dublin resident I got to appreciate buildings in a different light. The Walk is long but not strenuous and ours lasted around 2 hours 45 min. If a Dublin resident i strongly recommend this tour. If a visitor it will provide a lovely walk and give insights into Dublin’s history.
