A Recent Review of this tour

Damian is a very nice man and a great guide. We landed on the first day of "snowmageddon" and were 3 hours late coming out of the airport to begin the tour. Because of the weather Malahide Castle was closed, so the original plan had to be scrapped. Damian waited for us and then worked with us to salvage the tour; in the end we feel we were given the best alternative that could be arranged under the circumstances. We recommend this guide to everybody who visits Dublin!
