Garvan provides a comprehensive overview of central Dublin. He made the history and culture come alive with dramatic and humorous storytelling. Our visit to two Dublin pubs gave us time for beers and whiskey along with discussion time about issues facing contemporary Ireland. Garvan has a wealth of knowledge along with a young spirit. Our group highly recommends him.

Garvan was an outstanding guide! He is very knowledgeable in both history and libations. We especially enjoyed his singing. It is well worth your time and money to book this tour.

We so enjoyed our day in Dublin with Garvan - not only was he extremely friendly, personable and engaging, his uncanny "spot on" knowledge of Dublin and Irish history was amazing! He's a walking encyclopedia of Irish history!! - not to mention quite a good singer!! He's a young man of many talents and we were privileged to have him as our guide - it was a wonderful day (and it didn't rain at all!!) and we'll recommend him to any of our friends who may travel to Dublin in the future!

Garvan is a delightful person and knowledgeable guide. My sister and I learned a tremendous amount about Irish history, saw the sights in Dublin and got a couple pints along the way (which also gave us a chance to learn about Irish beer and whiskey). The tour was a highlight of our trip and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is planning to visit Dublin.

Our tour guide, Garvan, made this a very enlightening and enjoyable walking tour. Garvan's extensive knowledge of Irish & world history gave us a new insight into the Irish movement for independence & the Irish culture. Also, he was able to determine our particular interests, tailoring the tour and discussions around that. Ending the tour in a local pub to watch the last minutes of the All-Ireland hurling championship game made the tour even better! Would highly recommend taking a tour with Garvan.

Bill PowellUnited States
Garvan was fantastic. My wife is not a history buff, but Garvan made it fun for her and my two older boys. He was knowledgeable, funny, and spent more time than allotted with us. We learned so much about Ireland in a short but fun time frame. One of the best parts of our trip

Garvan could not have been a more welcoming, knowledgeable and FUN tour guide for our Sights and Pints tour. My father and I had never been to Dublin before and needed to hit the high points while also experiencing less touristy areas and pubs. We enjoyed pints, specialty coffee and the food market (with incredible cheese) in addition to getting a thorough lesson in Irish history with a wonderful guide. Thank you again - we would recommend Garvan to anyone traveling to Dublin!
