We had a very nice day with Dairine as our guide. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, and we certainly had a full day of seeing the sights in Dublin and the surrounds. Our favorite was visiting Powerscourt a beautiful park outside of Dublin. The only negative comment is that rear seat of the car really didn't accommodate 3 people all that well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that review Lesley and glad you enjoyed your day.

Loved our trip to Powerscourt and Wicklow. This is Dairine's "area" and she hits all the best places. I think the little villages are the best. Loved Enniskerry, my favorite little village.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed our day here too, and the company was great, so thanks for that lovely review!

Dairine was full of energy and enthusiasm for Dublin, making the tour lots of fun and very worthwhile. What is special about Dairine is that she shaped the tour to our specific interests so we saw the things that we were most excited about while our expert tour guide talked to us about Dublin's history and Irish history. From the Book of Kells, to The Natural History Museum, to special must see streets, Dairine took us directly to the places and exhibits that meant the most to us. Perfection.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that kind review and for being generous, inclusive visitors. I enjoyed your lively company and conversation on what turned out to be a very enjoyable day.

What a great walking tour of the City of Dublin! Dairine was fantastic! She handled our family of seven aged 16 years old to 70 years old with no problem. Very informative and knowledgeable about the history and sites of Dublin. If we return to this area, we will be booking with Dairine again and will encourage our friends to do so as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this lovely review - it was a pleasure to tour with such an interesting and inclusive group of people.

Dairine gave us a wonderful tour of Dublin. She is personable, knowledgeable and guided us expertly through the tourist sites of Dublin, all of which are quite crowded. We arrived at Malahide Castle and took the first tour of the day of it, which avoided the crowds from tour buses and added greatly to the enjoyment of that very interesting site. My wife uses a traveling wheelchair but Dairine was able to deal with this difficulty in crowds quite nicely.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that kind review! I think we had a lucky Monday, between missing the heaviest of the crowds and the heaviest of the rain!! I greatly enjoyed meeting you both and hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

On our first trip to Dublin, our group of four had a lovely day with Dairine. We saw a number of sights thatb we would probably not have seen on our own (including the William Butler Yeats exhibit at the library and the huge skeleton of the extinct Irish deer). Dairine also gave us excellent advice about what to see on our own outside the city proper. I would highly recommend a day touring with Dairine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for that review Mike and glad you enjoyed your day with me.
Michael UngerUnited States
What a fantastic day! Dairine is a fantastic guide and it was wonderful to spend the day walking Dublin with her. We hit all the highlights and had exactly the tour we were looking for. Dairine is extremely knowledgable and flexible and we would highly recommend working with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a lovely review to get - thanks so much! It was very enjoyable to cover so much of the city in a day, with two enthusiastic energetic people.

Dairine was very accommodating and took us wherever we wanted. Shopping eating and visiting gardens. Nice tour of the warwick area. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jenny - thanks for your review and I appreciate your kind comments.
Dairine was a great travel guide. Very knowledgeable about the area and overall pretty attentive to our needs (such as stopping for coffee breaks, toilets, etc). We walked a ton with her and saw what felt like all of Dublin. Great day overall!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for that lovely review. Yes, I felt like we saw a lot of Dublin in one busy day and I enjoyed your friendly company, your interest in everything, and your great energy. I hope the rest of your trip went well for you all. Regards Dairine

Dairine gave us a tour in the car of Dublin and then to County Wicklow. We were two adults and two older teens. Although we were jet lagged from the long trip the day prior it was definitely a tour I wouldn't want to miss. The countryside is just gorgeous and Dairine is very knowledgeable about her country, current events, politics, and more. Thank you for a great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments Sheri and I was delighted to meet you and your family and learn about your part of the world too.
