Our tour guide was very well informed and has even written several books about the 1916 uprising. He was a gifted storyteller with a great sense of humor. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour.

We booked the tour as this incident is incredibly interesting, so we had some prior knowledge of what occurred but Lorcan's educated and highly entertaining deliver, in the actual location of the events, was totally worthwhile! 13 euros? A bargain!
My wife and I signed up for this tour and both of us found it highly insightful, interesting and fun. The walking isn't strenuous at all and the guide does a fantastic job setting the stage for the 1916 rising across the multitude of sites...More
Ruari took our tour and provided lots of insights and information which filled in gaps in my readings. Great to visit well-known sites but also sites you really do need an expert to point out. Easy walking, and a must do when exploring Dublin.
