The long story: Family of four: Mom, Dad, two teenagers (almost 17 and 15 and a half) had a great time with Fergal. We booked Fergal for two half-day tours: Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19. Why two half-days? We landed from New York on Saturday and felt it would be best to break it up rather than kill... More

Maitiú took us on a thoroughly enjoyable walk around Dublin city centre. I cannot recommend this tour enough. 5 stars easily - I would give Maitiú 6 stars if possible for going above and beyond assisting Amber.

What a great welcome to Dublin! We did a two-day tour with Fergal, and it was perfect - he really individualized it based on our interests, and he was incredibly fun to talk to (and super knowledgeable). Thanks for making the start of our trip so wonderful!

When we travel over New Years we are always very nervous about finding a tour company that can accommodate a "holiday" tour so luckily Dublin Tour Guide confirmed with us very quickly they could do a tour on the 31st. Maitu emailed us right away and told us he would meet us at the airport. Our flight was an hour... More

I booked a two-day (three hours apiece) walking tour of Dublin during my recent trip. Fergal was my guide and I couldn't have asked for better! He was an absolutely charming young man and hilarious. Once I told him what my interests were, he tailored the walks accordingly while still showing me all the major sites. Both days, Fergal met... More

My husband and I treated our two 20+ year old sons to a trip to Dublin to ring in the new year. We were fortunate enough to schedule a three hour walking tour with Garvan who is not only charming but extremely knowledgeable in Irish history as well as Dublin. If you are planning a trip to Dublin, you absolutely... More

Our family of six (ages 20-58) had a wonderful and informative time exploring a great many sites in Dublin with Maitiu. Maitiu is personable, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We all learned a great deal about Dublin and Irish history in a non-exhausting, very fun way. Maitiu paced the tour wonderfully with timely stops at a few out-of-the-ordinary pubs which gave...

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Maitiú! He made every step of the journey interesting, entertaining, educational, and so funny!! Communication before, during, and after was superb. From the start we felt absolutely comfortable with him and the day went by like a walk through town with a good friend. He showed us things off the beaten path while hitting... More

Garvan led our family of 6 ( ages 20-61 ) on a fabulous Pub Crawl. He took us to 4 pubs and ordered various beers for all of us to taste. He gave us the history of the beers we were drinking and taught us so much about pouring and drinking beer. He was a wealth of knowledge and an... More
