Matthew helped make our trip to Dublin memorable. Intelligent, articulate, humorous and blessed with a sensational voice that broke into song at appropriate moments, he proved to be an engaging guide. We learned much about Dublin during a wonderful afternoon stroll. Well done indeed.

Our tour with Matthew was both exciting and informative. Matthew's knowledge of Ireland's history was outstanding. Mathew was very accomplished and accommodating. My family and myself agreed that Matthew is highly recommended! Kevin O'Brien
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Kevin. I hope the rest of your time here is good. Let me know how the big bus tour goes.

Matt was a wonderful guide. He adapted to our needs and took us to pubs that had music, gave us a great history of the city and country. and was very attentive to both of my daughters. He made sure that we enjoyed the sites and the pubs. We truly enjoyed the walk through the city and finishing at a pub that was little out of the way, but had great music and food. I would highly recommend using Matt for your walking tour.
Keith KuffelUnited States
Matthew was great! He customized the tour for us to focus on live music in local pubs, while also taking us to some beautiful sites. He was easy to talk with and we had a good time chatting about local history, music and more. A perfect night!

We enjoyed our tour of Dublin with Matthew very much- it was definitely a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Matthew is incredibly knowledgeable, and like the true teacher he is, made learning about his home city fun. We loved it all - the historical sites, the offthebeatentrail pubs, the amazing music and of course, the Guinness. Two minutes with Matthew and we felt like we were with an old friend. Thank you so much!

The BEST tour guide in all of Dublin! Matthew! I look forward to hiring him again on my next trip to Dublin. Pints & Sights Thank you for sharing some Irish sensibility, history, culture and friendship.
Patricia ColemanUnited States
Matthew was an excellent guide. We only had one night in Dublin, and we were able to see and experience so much more than if we had been on our own. We went to three pubs — the food and pints were wonderful, and the traditional music was fantastic. Walking in between pubs were learned a bit of history, and I saw some of the sites I had been reading about. The dancers in the last pub made our night! I'm so glad we skipped the places packed with tourists, and got a taste of the authentic.

I traveled with three other ladies and we all thoroughly enjoyed our Sights and Pints Tour in Dublin with Matthew (July 2018). He was on time, friendly, funny, and informative. We had two educators in our group and they loved the binder of information (notable historical figures, settlers, timelines, even precipitation!) he carried with him. (Even the two non-educators enjoyed it, too.). Matthew is wonderful - please don't hesitate to book him for a fun and eventful day!

Matthew is an exceptional communicator who can take a less than perfect situation and make the most of it. What do I mean by this comment ...... starting a PUB Crawl at 4 in the afternoon when PUBS don't wake up until 9 at night is not the ideal way to experience PUB night life in Ireland. But Matthew overcame this obstacle and provided us with a well rounded instructional historical view of Dublin PUB life. I would rate this PUB Crawl a 3, at most, but most definitely Matthew a 5!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Jack That you for your review. It is my first 4 star review. The rest are all 5, so this will help keep me on my toes. I guess because you had a car I tried to be a little different, and I realised early on that it didn't work. It is something I will take into account for the future. I always try to make my tour different to previous ones, and unfortunately here it just did not work. I would normally also go to more churches, however as we had gone to Glasnevin I thought you might find it a bit much.
Caryn HeadleyUnited States
The tour with Matthew was wonderful! He is very knowledgeable about everything that Dublin has to offer. We had a great time with him and we loved that he took us to some places more frequented by locals, rather than only tourists! Next time we come to Ireland, we will definitely get in touch with Matthew! He really made our short trip unforgettable.
Marcie GirolamoUnited States
What a fun evening! Matthew was awesome! We learned a lot, saw parts of Dublin we otherwise wouldn't have seen and got to pop into some fun pubs. We highly recommend his tours!

We really enjoyed our time and tour with Matthew, not only was the tour informative but Matthew is very knowledgable and talented. You can tell his passion for what he does and knows all the top local pubs to take you to
An outstanding afternoon! Matthew is a very knowledgable, energetic and delightful tour guide who knows the city really well and had excellent tips for places that I would have never been able to find on my own. The whole tour was a lot of fun, entertaining and informative and perfectly paced for me. I enjoyed every minute of it. Couldn't have made a better choice!
Tommy BeadelUnited States
We couldn't have had a better time!! Matthew was knowledgeable, fun, and great with every age on our tour :)
Roxanne BUttsUnited States
Matthew was a fun and exciting tour guide! He was accommodating to change in schedule and change and how many people we were going! I would recommend this to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Thanks very much. I hope you enjoyed your other tour.
Fun, informative and friendly is how I would describe yesterday's tour with Matthew. From the beginning to the end we were riveted in his description of Dublin's evolution through time peppered with humorous antidotes. Between sites, we stopped at many historic pubs where you could absolutely feel the fun, authentic atmosphere. It was without a doubt, the highlight of our weekend escape to Ireland. Thank you so much again from your "Florentine" friends!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Georgette. Thanks very much. You guys were amazing craic. ��
Peggy CappielloUnited States
Fantastic tour! Matthew is wonderful!
Karl GolnikUnited States
Matthew was very informative, pleasant and amenable to modification of the schedule. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the highlights of Dublin an a fairly short time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karl Thank you so much for the review. I hope you both had a safe flight, and that you managed to get a few pubs in before your early flight. :)
Fantastic afternoon with our singing guide :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey See you again man. Hope you guys enjoyed thevrest of the night. Nobody got lost I hope.
Michele PereiraUnited States
Mathew is amazing - I have had SO many Tours by Locals throughout the EU and he was our favorite! We had to make last minute changes and he was very accommodating. We learned so much in four hours it was unbelievable how knowledgeable he is. He was fun, and sang Irish songs - when at the Molly statute he sang the "Molly Song" and drew a crowd! He will alter the tour to meet your needs/wants. He is perfect for all age groups - I can't imagine anyone not falling for his Irishness.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michele thank you so much. I hope you are enjoying the rest of your trip.
