Must do

This was the highlight of our time in Ireland. Super tour guide, very knowledgeable about Ireland's history, fielded all questions from the group. She stayed well after the tour concluded, to continue the conversation with those interested.

Sorry to have missed your question; the guided walking tour is only available on Saturdays & Sunday’s right after the 11 AM tour of Little Museum of Dublin so would not have worked for your day.
