I would recommend this tour. The headphones that we were given enabled the guide to talk to us while walking, so he could talk about some places without stopping. His delivery was captivating and engaging, and the information was interesting and relevant.

We really enjoyed our tour with Carl. It's clear that he's a very knowledgeable guide, and he was able to keep it lively and entertaining while steeping us in quite a bit of Irish history. We'd definitely do another tour with him!
