Traveled as a couple, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We got to see an amazing concert with the very talented students of the College. Well worth visiting if you are a fan of Celtic music.

I got the info on the website. I would call them to confirm though as they changed the time on us (which worked to our favour) but hate to miss out. I bet fall is less frequent.
