This was a great "first day in Dublin" tour. We enjoyed having Fergal as our guide. He was knowledgeable, interesting, candid, irreverent, funny -- all the characteristics you can hope for in a guide. I recommend the tour and Fergal without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the fun around town. Delighted you guys had a great trip. :)

Fergal was an engaged and knowledgable guide. He clearly 'knew' his subjects, rather than simply regurgitating tour book stuff.
Kathy MillerUnited States
Great tour we learned much about Dublin from our guide!!
Mary Anne CannonUnited States
Fergal was a fantastic tour guide. If your looking for a walking tour of Dublin full of history past and present then this is your tour. The tour was an easy pace with lots of story telling and a few pints along the way. Highly recommend.
Jim BilgerUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour of Dublin with Fergal. His knowledge of history, the local places we saw, and current Irish life was amazing. Above all his humor, personality, and engagement with our group of 6 made the tour go way beyond the normal tour experience. He is very engaging and gives a real insight into Dublin life. He is also very flexible of directing the tour to what interested us. We highly recommend Fergal for any tour you are considering. Jim, Jeanne, Don, Sharon, Paul, and Kerri
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You guys are awesome. Great fun guests!

If you're looking for THE BEST tour in the city - book this one. Fergal knows EVERYONE and took us on a walking tour of some of the most vibrant and authentic spots in the city. He customized our stops on the fly, took us to amazing places that aren't on tourist maps, connected each stop to history, found authentic hidden music spots and made us laugh all night long. This was the #1 memory we took from our entire Dublin trip.

Fergal is an amazing guide. He's knowledgeable, funny, warm and welcoming. He has a wonderful demeanor, asking what we were interested in seeing and learning about and then weaving it all together in a few hour walking tour. He is so good at what he does we booked 2 tours with him during our stay and they were the highlights of our trip! We left Dublin with a wonderful appreciation of its history, people and new friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah that's great. It was a real pleasure. Stay in touch!
This tour was just perfect. In three hours we saw the highlights of Dublin and we could also adjust the agenda to what we are most interested in. Fergal is very knowledgable and very nice and pleasant as tourguide. Very good with kids too. I can recommend Fergal without any hesitation! Thank you Fergal!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah thanks a mill Andrei. Hope you and the lads enjoyed dinner. Best wishes on getting through your capitals.

We met Fergal in downtown Dublin near Christ Church Cathedral. We had already been walking around for over an hour on our own, so we started our tour at a local pub. We discussed our tour and had time to get to know Fergal and he got to know us better too. We then did a walking tour of Dublin customized just for us. We ended our tour at another pub for some lunch. Fergal was very knowledgeable and friendly! We would highly recommend Fergal as a tour guide! We wish we had booked a longer tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Wes, Thanks so much for the review. Your words are very kind. I had a great afternoon with you guys. You were great fun and have a lovely fun attitude to life. It was a privilege.
Mike GiontaUnited States
Meeting Fergal is like running into an old friend! He made us comfortable from "hello". We stopped by several pubs in downtown Dublin taking in the old along with the new based on what we wanted to see. Fergal knew his history very well and made all of it very interesting for us. I highly recommend him and ANY tour he runs!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah Mike, Those are very kind words. I had a great evening with you and the posse. I have found myself listening to a little too much Earth Wind & Fire since the Exchequer. Also I'm gonna have to find a place that does good pitchers in Dublin, and then steal your ordering technique. Thanks again to you all. Drop me a line if any of you are back over. :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a mill Nancy :)

Fergal was fantastic! It was our first time to Dublin and we had a big group - nine of us, including four teenagers. He's very knowledgeable, flexible, helpful, witty, and nice. Thanks to his help, he got us into a great lunch spot on a very busy weekend. We had a great overview of the city and we'll definitely be back. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your review Vanessa. I had a lovely morning with you guys. Glad lunch went down well. See you again I hope!
Michelle DeanUnited States
Fergal was not supposed to be our tour guide originally, but boy, are we glad the tour Gods brought him in to lead the food & city tour! Fergal was knowledgable, flexible, affable, & entertained all of our questions & desires from the tour. The tour felt like spending time with a good friend, who just happened to know a lot about Ireland. It was a great blend of history & social, with a heaping scoop of humor. We HIGHLY recommend any of his tours-- you are guaranteed a good time! It was unFERgettable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How have I never thought of unFERgetable???? I'm so taking that. Had a great time with you guys. Really fun day. Stay in touch :)
Excellent tour of Dublin in 3 hours just as we expected it. Excellent knowledge of Irish history and great guide. We really recommend this
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awww thanks a mill. It was great to show you both around. Hope you have a great day today :)
John SpaffordUnited States
It was such a delight to walk around Dublin with Fergal. It was my husband's first time in Ireland so everything was new to him. And, even though I had been in Dublin before, touring around with Fergal provided me with a whole new appreciation of the city. Fergal provided us with a great blend of sightseeing, history and commentary. And, a special tip of the hat to Fergal for providing us with great suggestions of what to see and do for the rest of our Ireland driving adventure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My complete pleasure guys. And thanks a mill for letting me know how the rest of your trip went. Delighted for you!
Nancy HessUnited States
His knowledge of Dublin and history was incredible! He picked up us in a private Mercedes sedan with driver, whisked us away to Dublin from our cruise ship. We had a wonderful walking tour of Dublin and sights. My husband has a bad back and Fergal really let us go at our own pace. Stopped at a couple of pubs and had fish and chips in one! Ladies, he is easy on the eyes too. A bit like Ewan McGregor! After so many of the crowded ship tours this is the way to see a foreign city in a day privately! Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nancy, you've little idea how easy and enjoyable an afternoon I had hanging out with you guys. It's an honour to have new friends!
