Young, energetic, but most importantly, knowledgeable and entertaining, Garvan offers some of the greatest walking tours in Dublin, delivered with as much passion as good cheer. Having over 700 tours under his belt, he knows all the main sites and most of the hidden ones ;)

After reading reviews on Trip advisor, we knew we couldn't go wrong with Dublin Tour Guide. Maitiu was a perfect fit for my 20 year old daughter and me. He was extremely knowledgable and such a joy to be with. He showed us all the sights and pointed us in the right direction and left us each day with the... More

We had a 3-hour walking tour last week with Maitiu. My son and I really enjoyed his method of sharing his knowledge of the city and its history. He was great at keeping us all engaged and entertained. He even added bits of some songs to compliment the Irish history (and he has a good voice!). My son is studying... More

We only had one day in Dublin… After a few flights, all the way from Dayton, Ohio we thought this tour was only going to last an afternoon for the kids to eat and get to know a little bit of Ireland but that wasn’t until I met FERGAL BANNON. The vast Irish culture could have not been properly digested... More

We just returned from Ireland and had an amazing time! We began our trip with Garvan and the five hour walking tour of Dublin. This was a great way to kick off our week with the history of not only Dublin but also Ireland. Garvan was extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about his country. He was very flexible with our... More

We booked this tour based in TripAdvisor reviews and we were thrilled with the experience! We booked the Sights and Pints tour with Mathieu and enjoyed every moment. His knowledge of Dublin history, culture and the people and his bright and cheery personality made for a wonderful tour. We saw so many sights and enjoyed several pints at different pubs,... More

In February 2017 my husband, 23 year old son and I enjoyed an excellent three hour walking tour of Dublin with Garvin and thoroughly enjoyed it. Garvin is extremely knowledgeable of Ireland's history and we all learned so much. Highlights were the Book of Kells and the Long Room Library at Trinity College. I highly recommend hiring Garvin for your... More

The long story: Family of four: Mom, Dad, two teenagers (almost 17 and 15 and a half) had a great time with Fergal. We booked Fergal for two half-day tours: Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19. Why two half-days? We landed from New York on Saturday and felt it would be best to break it up rather than kill... More

Maitiú took us on a thoroughly enjoyable walk around Dublin city centre. I cannot recommend this tour enough. 5 stars easily - I would give Maitiú 6 stars if possible for going above and beyond assisting Amber.

What a great welcome to Dublin! We did a two-day tour with Fergal, and it was perfect - he really individualized it based on our interests, and he was incredibly fun to talk to (and super knowledgeable). Thanks for making the start of our trip so wonderful!

When we travel over New Years we are always very nervous about finding a tour company that can accommodate a "holiday" tour so luckily Dublin Tour Guide confirmed with us very quickly they could do a tour on the 31st. Maitu emailed us right away and told us he would meet us at the airport. Our flight was an hour... More
