My tour with Fergal was wonderful! I highly recommend him as a guide for a first-timer in Dublin. I love little side stories and trivia you don't read about in history books, so his commentary as we strolled the city was right in my wheelhouse. We lucked out with a lovely, crisp, sunny winter day to spend a few hours walking around. Excellent way to get your bearings and lay the groundwork for further exploration. Thank you so much, Fergal, for introducing me to your beloved city!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Heya Kate, Delighted to hear you had a nice time. Sure it's not the worst spot over Christmas. Hope you're enjoying Scotland! All the best, Fergal.

Fergal was the right guide for our pup crawl. Even when it was very crowded he found the right pubs for our group of ten on Saturday evening. He is a great story-teller an entertainer.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Andrea. I loved meeting you all. Hope you all had a great time!

Our group of six thoroughly enjoyed our pub crawl led by Fergel. He was very personable and knowledgeable regarding the different pubs of Dublin. He escorted us to several different pubs and gave us a history lesson regarding the bars of Dublin. We ended the night at a bar with a sing along which was enjoyed by everyone. He has an excellent singing voice. We highly recommend him as guide for Dublin and give him 5 stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awww shucks. Yeah that little sing along was a nice place to bump into. It won't be my last time. Thanks so much for coming over. All the best to you all :)

Fergal has all the usual qualities of an excellent guide (prompt, smart, knowledgeable, friendly) and so much more! He's just plain fun to hang out with and we are twice his age. He is well connected, Fergal goes above and beyond even after the tour is over. Our evening pub crawl tour was cancelled, I texted Fergal to see if he could suggest a few pubs, not only did he do that but magically got us a dinner reservation on a Friday night at a wonderful restaurant which is always fully booked in advance.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ah guys! Thanks so much. It's a great job, but much easier and way more fun when your guests are great company. Thanks for the kind words :)

Fergal was a delightful tour guide in Dublin, and introduced us to Guiness and the proper way to enjoy it. Without rushing through any of the sightseeing stops, he was still able to take us through many interesting areas. We were without a specific agenda, but Fergal hit all the highlights and then some. Dublin was delightful with Fergal. Scott and Valerie

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind words guys. It was a privilege to show you guys around. Look after yourselves!

Fergal was prompt, an excellent historian, funny, witty and took us to places that most tourists would not have found. The Love Wall, Oscar Wilde, narrow streets that we would have never explored and so much more. Great sense of humor and grand at answering all of our questions except on types of trees:-) He even took extra time to share a pint and give us extremely helpful information on things to see during the rest of our trip in Ireland. If he has an open date I highly recommend for a fantastic tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: But if I brush up on my tree knowledge then you'd not be able to teach me anything! :p Thanks for your kind words. It was great meeting you all.

We booked an open ended 4 hr tour of Dublin for first timers. We were 10 people which is a lot to keep track of. He was full of information, friendly and totally flexible. He ended up spending almost 5 hours with us. It was perfect and we would book him again if we could

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind words Kathtyn. Hope you guys had a great time over here. :)

Perfect 3-hour tour! We were in Dublin for just one day, and this walking tour was ideal. Saw the top attractions, lots of great photos, and Fergal provided a wonderful history of the city and country that tied it all together and made it very enjoyable. Fergal definitely exceeded our expectations, dropped us off at the Guinness Storehouse at the end for our 3:30 tour and pint, and was a lot of fun to spend the afternoon with...can't rate him and the tour highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Guys, thanks sooooooo much for the super review. Delighted you had an enjoyable time. All the best!

Fergal was absolutely wonderful! Fun, witty, and engaging, he took the tie to really find out what we wanted and then he made it happen. Absolutely one of our favorite tour guides on this 2-week vacation. Wish we had him for more than one tour! Thank you, Fergal! Your friends from Puerto Rico!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey K., Of course I remember you guys, I had a blast! Puerto Rico is certainly on the list, I reckon it'll be a few years though. Really hope the rest of your trip went well. Hi to all the guys :)

Fergal gave us a wonderful day In Dublin. He adjusted the tour to fit our needs and was very knowledgeable. Most of all, he made our experience informative as well as fun. We have been to Dublin twice before and this was the best of the three visits.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Heeeeeeey, Thank you so much. I'm really delighted you enjoyed your tour and visit. Drop me a line if you're up for a 4th visit!

Fergal showed us the best of Dublin in the very best way. He's a brilliant storyteller, a decent singer, and a wonderful human being. Can't recommend him highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'd prefer be a wonderful singer and a decent human being, but I guess I'll settle for it. Thanks so much for a lovely stroll. Glad you had fun. Hope you're all well.

Four of us spent a great evening on The After Dark tour with Fergal. One of the best decisions of our vacation! Can't think of a better way to end an holiday than strolling around Dublin drinking in wonderful pubs, learning about different beers, Irish whiskeys and have the bonus of great conversation and many laughs. Thank you so much Fergal, we loved every moment spent with you. Oh, to taste a Teeeling again! Can't recommend this tour highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Maureen, Apologies for the late reply. I must have missed the notification. I'm delighted you had a fun time, very much as did I. Hope you and yours are in great form!

We had booked a doulbe walking /pubcrawl tour with Fergal in Dublin while on a cruise and had a great day . When booking our tour months before we left Fergal was very helpful by adjusting his standard tours to what we wanted to do for our day in Dublin . We met at the meeting place and he took us to some great spots in and around the centre of town we had a very nice lunch that he organised for us and than went to a couple of pubs to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere .Thanks for the great day Fergal !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My absolute pleasure Tony. Was great to meet you guys.

Fergal's knowledge of Dublin and Ireland is very impressive, from history, old and new, to politics. The things that shaped Ireland, gave us a better understanding of Dublin today and the people. Dublin is a fine city, rich in history, art, and culture, which Fergal brought to life. I'm sure Fergal and I could solve the problems of the world, and Australian rugby, over a few pints . Thanks. Anthony & Julie.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi guys, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, Maybe subconsciously I couldn't find anything good to say about Australian rugby. Finally though I can attest, I like your away jersey! :) Nah, seriously belated thanks for your kind words. Delighted you had a good time. All the best to you both. :)

Fergal was a fantastic host, he adapted his tour for us even though the Dublin weather let us down. He delivered great anecdotes of Dublin history no matter where we were. His energy throughout the tour kept everyone's spirit up. A+ Fergal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Stephen. Yeah the weather was poor but you had a nice group in high spirits. All the best to you!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks s much for that Brenda. Hope all's well!
