Our guide Rory was second to none with his knowledge on the history of Ireland and specifically the rebellion of 1916. Learned a great deal of information in about 2 hours and wish we could of kept going all day. DO THIS TOUR!

This was a great way to learn more about the 1916 rebellion while viewing the buildings and sight lines of those involved. Owen was incredibly well versed in the history and also answered all questions from the group with ease. He was a great guide, and we definitely enjoyed our tour!

Eion Walsh gave the best walking tour that I have ever had. Not only is he charming and personable but extremely knowledgable about Irish History. He made the events of 1916 come alive as we walked through the streets of Dublin. He also helped me to put the history of my own family into perspective regarding the events of 1916... More

Lorcan Collins provided my wife and I the best walking tour we have ever taken. He mixes historic knowledge and humor with his passion for the subject in a most marvelous way. He's hooked us on Irish rebellion history and he's likely to stir the same reaction in most everyone! I would recommend reservations in advance because it is too... More

We visited Dublin on Easter Sunday and took the walking tour with Lurkin Collins it was a most informative and educational tour. Made even better by Lurkins comments and knowledge of the information presented. Good job to everyone that has a hand in running the 1916 Easter uprising tour

I have to admit, I did not know too much about Irish history in detail before I started the tour. But Eion was able to explain everything in context and with a lot of interesting side stories, which made it extremely interesting and fun to listen. I really got hooked on learning more about the Irish struggle through this tour.... More

I found this tour to be very educational and enjoyable. Our guide Rory initially spoke for about 20 minutes on Ireland's history since the 12 th century. This created the context for the 1916 rising. We visited some of the key sites from the rising including the GPO and Moore Street. Rory was very knowledgeable and well able to answer... More

I took a student group on this tour in March 2017 and he made a rich and complex Irish political history very relatable to us (we are American, so this is not a history we grew up with). He had us laughing at some points, but also told stories that humanized the events. What I loved most was that he... More

Absolutely fascinating tour about the Easter Rising -- Lorcan was a brilliant guide, great craic as the locals say, and brimming with insight and humour. He clearly knew an enormous amount on the subject but managed to combine depth of knowledge with an entertaining narrative. Also shed a lot of light on present-day Dublin. Can't recommend this highly enough if... More

It was a very well done tour. Our guide Eion was very knowledgeable about all the history of the time and made it very interesting. The walk was not hard at all through the town. I would recommend this tour to all who visit Dublin.
