“Cathal is extremely knowledgeable about Dublin (all of Ireland!). But it was the entertaining way our 5 hour walking tour of Dublin was presented that made the time fly by with every minute enjoyable. He was very flexible about curating the walk to address our desire for certain sights to see or those we had already been to. He was then extremely helpful with recommendations for our journey outside of Dublin. I honestly cannot recommend Cathal more highly. ”

“Our tour with Cathal was the perfect start to our trip. Not only did we learn a huge amount about Ireland’s complicated and fascinating history, but we were able to have some context to appreciate every other site we visited after the tour. Cathal is hugely knowledgeable. He is also a lot of fun and very good company. We shared a lot of laughs during our three hour tour. We definitely feel like we have a friend in Dublin now, and we told him to let us give him a tour when he makes it to New York!”
“I have traveled quite a bit with guides but I must say Cathal added a totally different dimension to our trip in Ireland. His knowledge, passion and good humor made our experience unforgettable. Truly good guides are hard to find. This one is a keeper.
Thank you, Cathal.”
“Still dreaming about our trip to Ireland, especially our time in Dublin with Cathal. For a relatively small country Ireland has so much to see and do with a limited amount of time. Above and beyond Cathal’s Dublin touring he so generously helped us with our projected itinerary beyond the city. We couldn’t believe how committed he was to making our entire time in his beloved country memorable. When we arrived we were even more impressed with his enthusiasm, good humor, kindness and knowledge. Can’t think of a better way to start our Irish adventure than with music, dancing and lot of laughter. Because he is also an actor we were treated to a small scene from an Irish play. What a perfect introduction to this incredible country and it’s rich history! From then on we let Cathal led us on our walking tour to all of his favorite historical highlights, restaurants, pubs etc always being flexible depending upon our needs. Basically he made us fall in love with Ireland and it’s people. Our only problem now is how will we ever be able to enjoy travel again without a “Cathal” to lead the way!”
“Cathal was recommended by a good friend to show us around. He was charming, knowledgeable and so much fun. Sang to us, recited poetry, took us to great places and brought Irish culture and history alive. We all fell in love.”

“We would highly recommend Cathal, and offer that it was really a treat to explore landmarks, historical buildings and some vibrant sections of a fabulous city while being educated and entertained by such an engaging, knowledgeable, and accomplished guide. Cathal went “above and beyond” your typical tour guide, and when we asked, he offered insights from his own Irish experience, education,and professional endeavors to enrich our understanding of modern Dublin and Ireland. He also indulged me by taking our family’s picture in front of the statue of Henry Grattan, and by the plaque on the Grattan Bridge. So, add photographer to his list of selling points and be sure to skip the large group tours and book Cathal instead.
