A Recent Review of this tour

Liam was as good a guide as we have ever had. Extremely personable and knowledgeable about Irish history, politics and social issues. Took us wherever we wanted to go at our own pace. Spent almost 8 hours with us and would have kept going, except that we were worn out. We give him the highest possible recommendation.
