Fascinating to walk in the steps of the Rebels of the 1916 Rising. Eamon has a wealth of knowledge about the Rising but, also in all aspects of Dublin and surrounding areas. We throughly enjoyed our day. Thank you Eamon

Absolutely Excellent Dublin 1916 Easter Rising Tour

As an Irishman now in my ‘vintage’ years yet only knowing bits and pieces of our country’s history and with this the 100th year since partition this tour was just the best way possible to become enlightened and now reasonably knowledgeable on the various and so historic events that took place in our capital city Dublin and elsewhere at the time of the 1916 Easter Rising. This fabulous and so enjoyable tour for me was made possible by my excellent and so friendly guide Eamon. His passion for Irish History was evident from the off and he, with enthusiasm, passed on to me his extreme wealth of knowledge of all of the significant events that occurred at that time but also included some little known about (and so not to be found in the history books) events which were equally as important or relevant. With the weather being dry too, the whole day was excellent as we walked from one area or building steeped in Irish history to the next. So well done Viator for being able to provide such an excellent and now currently so relevant a tour in Dublin and thank you so very much Eamon for making that day a day that I’ll never forget. I can’t say this too emphatically but to those who love Ireland and it’s people, please do find the time and book this Dublin Easter Rising 1916 Tour ASAP. You’ll be so glad that you did as you will really enjoy it and particularly if you too get Eamon as your guide👏🏻👌🇮🇪👍 Kieran😊

Eamon was great at communicating with us a few times up to the day of the tour. Once on the tour, he was very well prepared and well versed in everything on the history of Dublin. We asked a few off beat questions and he was able to easily answer them. Definitely recommend the private tour with Eamon!!

If you want the 1916 History brought to life by a local, passionate and knowledgeable about his history, this is the trip for you. Eamon brought photos from 1916 which were fascinating. All events are explained clearly. Highly recommended.

Going to see the actual town and see the buildings that were affected by the blasts was memorable. The GPO and the buildings that remained with the plaques still in tact was also very heart welcoming.

Eamon - the best guide in Ireland.

This is one of the best ways to experience, learn and appreciate one of the most important parts of Irish history. It’s one thing to take a tour, it’s another to experience it with someone who holds this history with passion. Eamon is one of the best guides I’ve had in the many years of travel. The private, hands on leadership and history he shares is amazing and eye opening. He knows his way in and out of Ireland and is one of the best assets Ireland has for storytelling. He provided us everything from places to go, to insights to small parts of Irish history you simply cannot get from a bus tour. If you book this - ensure you have Eamon. His intimidate and personal approach is warm and passionate. He is by far the best resource in Ireland and you can tell from his experiences he loves to share. Ensure you plan to have a pint or a meal with him. Those experiences make this the perfect tour for everyone. Bottom line, if you want customization, personal touches and a real amazing view of Ireland - book this. Eamon is by far, the best. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent and highly recommended tour

Rory was a generous, entertaining and educational tour guide. He went out of his way to meet us at our hotel and started the tour right there. Right off the bat, he asked us if we were 1916 scholars (no) and adjusted the tour to our level of knowledge. He mixed the tour with a mix of history, interesting local tidbits, and personal lore. We covered a lot of the city, and I left feeling well-versed in the subject. A very, very interesting and entertaining tour. Highly recommended!
