What an informative and fun tour. Liam met us in Dublin and then we walked through the center city, learning about history (especially the Easter Rebellion and Irish independence), and literature. He left us with a sense of where things were and what else we should be doing in the city. Unfortunately, because our ship was there on a Monday, many museums were closed. But that made walking through town all the more interesting and vital. And LIam is charming!
