Lorcan was an excellent guide I was absolutely engrossed. He also helped me out when I was in Dublin! Professional, courteous, and will draw you in. Some people say he is a little opinionated. But he gives you every fact and name to draw your own.

A great tour. Lorcan brought a perfect mix of knowledge and humour. I'd recommend it for Irish people and visitors from abroad to learn more about our recent history in an entertaining way 😁

Spent my Saturday morning with Lorcan today and I have to say this tour does not disappoint. Lorcan is a fountain of knowledge and his story telling capabilities are an art form. Very special day spent with family learning all about the rising and the historic tales behind so many buildings and monuments I’ve walked past on a regular basis. Thank you Lorcan for a wonderful morning.

We had a Fantastic experience at the 1916 rebellion walking tour. We were blown away by the knowledge and historical stories our guide Caitlin shared with us. Highly recommend this tour and a special thanks to Caitlin who pitched the tour brilliantly and made the experience for us. Will definitely be recommending to our friends and family. We also really appreciated how safe the tour was and social distancing rules were followed. Big thumbs up.
