We had a wonderful and very special tour today with Damian, who worked hard to get us to Newgrange on time for our scheduled tour. At Newgrange, the guides there take you to the site itself. Damian waited for our return. He is extremely knowledgeable about Ireland and is extremely proud of his heritage. He spoke eloquently about the country, its history, its geography, politics, and anything else that we wanted to learn about. We enjoyed ourselves and really learned about Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alice, many thanks for your valuable custom. Thank you for all the questions, I was delighted to meet you and your fellow travellers. Enjoy the rest of your cruise. Thanks Damian

This was a very full day. Damian was delightful and a wealth of information, particularly of Irish history and lore. Added the hill of Tara to our tour which was well worth the effort.
Michael GilmartinUnited States
We highly recommend Damian. He had a great deal of knowledge not just about Newgrange but also Dublin and Ireland in general and a terrific delivery. He was very receptive to questions and usually had an amusing anecdote or two on various topics. He also provided excellent recommendations for other Dublin adventures (zoo, Glasnevin cemetery, Phoenix park, etc.). Overall, we really enjoyed our Newgrange trip with Damian.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow folks thank you so much. Look forward to seeing you in Ireland again soonest.

A wonderful tour - surreal to go back 5,000 years in time. Damian was a great tour guide, eloquent and knowledge and very attentive. Went out of his way to make our morning enjoyable.

We had a really great tour with Damian. He was prompt and very generous with his time. Newgrange was worthwhile visiting and Hill of Slane was just beautiful. We ended our tour visiting Malahide castle and felt we really got a feel of how beautiful Ireland is.

Our tour guide was Damian…and he was amazing! He was funny, charming and very informative. His wealth of knowledge about Ireland and its colorful history was fascinating and insightful. He is very intuitive as to what me and my husband wanted to see, so in addition to the unbelievable tour of Newgrange, he showed us some off the beaten path gems. This tour was the perfect way to start our trip. Thank you very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shannon, delighted to see you enjoyed your private tour to Newgrange, delighted we were able to also visit Hill of Slane. Look forward to seeing you back in Ireland soonest. Damian
James PhebusAnniston, AL, United States
Wonderful tour! Damion was very knowledgeable about Newgrange, but shared with us an incredible amount of information about Irish history, most of which we had never known. Newgrange itself was fascinating, and the surrounding countryside only added to our enjoyment. It was a real pleasure to spend the morning with Damion. Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James Thank you for the review, Newgrange is a remarkable place. I do hope that you will return to Ireland in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me on your return. Damian

Damian was a pleasure to tour with. He was prompt in his arrival, and timely throughout the day. His personal insights of contemporary Irish culture and demographics was helpful in understanding the relevance of the study of Ireland's ancient history. The Passage Tombs were fascinating, and made real the history and culture of ancient man who once called this island home. The tour of the greater countryside included stops at sites where once active monastic communities thrived. We will come again!
