Peter, Cork City.

"Fantastic experience, very charming suit…great character…really feel what the Irish rebel is all about ! 5 ⭐️"

Amber, Boulder.

"the music and storytelling was the most unforgettable part; and left us all gobsmacked. Walking out we were quiet and my partner said "that's one of the coolest things I have ever seen." Dara is not your average tour leader, he has travelled the world and loves Cork in a way that is infectious. Not to be missed!"
