Dear Mikiko, and dear all the Nozaki family; thank you for your visit to Dublin, and thank you for this very kind review of our tour together. As you know I had other tours that day, and was getting married two days later. But when...More

David, thank you so much for this kind, generous-spirited review. I am absolutely thrilled you enjoy the tours we provide. Thank you so much for taking the time to write about them. Much obliged to you sir -Arran.
Arran navigates a lively and well informed trek up and down Grafton Street from the residence at No.1 to the commercial property opposite at No. 116 ( I think). Dubliners especially will be challenged to stand and stare to behold the original buildings behind the...More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear that overall you enjoyed the tour and found it lively and well-informed. Thank you for saying that. We've had exceptionally good feedback about it, as in fairness we get about all our tours.
How fascinating this walk with Arran was - he like mother duck leading his ducklings through the fairly thronged streets between the newly refurbished and very fine City Assembly House - the old Civic Museum building next door to the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre and Temple...More

thank you for this kind, generous review. I'm delighted you enjoyed our visit to the Society of Artists' exhibition, and our little ramble around the city centre, to some former studios and homes of those 18th Century artists. It was a very nice...More
Aaran Henderson ran a tour for the Irish Georgian Society centered around the current exhibition at the IGS City Assembly House. Wow! Is all that I can say. The City Assembly House has been recently and lovingly restored by the IGS and is well worth...More
My brother and I booked a private tour with Aaran on our recent trip to Dublin. Aaran's brief was to "help us connect with Dublin" in a deeper way, and he more than delivered. We started in Trinity College, learning about the architecture and history...More

To celebrate the opening of a New Cafe (Jay's Broadstone) I contacted Aaran to see if he would be interested in providing a Local Historical Walking Tour. From the get-go Aaran was fantastic.
He is has a great wealth of knowledge about all quarters of...More

The pleasure was all mine James.
We were thrilled to be asked to provide a walk to celebrate that opening, of your beautiful little Jay's cafe in Upper Dominick Street. It was a super idea to team up like that in fact. I remember it...More
