Great tour! I’d definitely recommend!

The guide was very informative. Told stories for days and had great knowledge of the area. He touched on Murders, vampires, grave-robbing, witches and even ghosts. Never knew Dublin could be so diverse.

Helena was a wonderful Tour guide. I really liked the Story of Billy in the Bowl, and it was a good mix of dark/grim places and stories, as well as some usual Dublin attractions.

Really cool walk with stories you'd never hear anywhere else. The fun part of history! The tour guide was fantastic
Love the Darkside.

Carl our guide was a great storyteller. He handled the occasional Dublin heckler with humor. It was a wonderful way to see the city while learning its history. He also made sure to include every member of the tour and keep them involved.
Good tour with knowledgeable guide.

John was a great guide, made it fun and interesting. It was great to see the locations and hear the stories from a different angle. The tour was well paced and lasted about 2 hours. The group however felt a bit too big to be able to hear everything especially when near the roads. Would recommend.
Amazing tour guide
, Oct 2021
Our tour guide John was excellent! The entire time he was very upbeat and knowledgeable, he definitely made it a good time. At the end, he even polite enough to help us and others with directions back to our hotel. Fantastic!
Dark yet funny tour around Dublin's iconic places..

Very interesting stories brought in a light manner. The guide was funny and a lively storyteller. It gave us plenty of material to talk about after!
