    This was an excellent tour – highly recommend! Our tour guide was Brian Molloy, he was very personable, and knowledgeable. The tour was very interesting and it was great to get right in to see the Book of Kells without a huge crowd. You can tell Brian enjoys his job and it shows in his enthusiasm. Definitely book this tour if you’re in Dublin!

    This is an excellent tour. Neil McCourt was really knowledgeable and funny and great fun to spend a few hours with. Early access to the Book of Kells was priceless then the rest of the tour was really interesting. Neil knows the city and its history incredibly well and knows how to share that knowledge with his group. We were only a group of 5 so it was especially nice!
