Liam our guide was very informative with a wealth of knowledge. The tour brought buildings and locations, which we had read about to life. An excellent and impressive way to spend a couple of hours. For anyone with an interest in The Rising.

Excellent tour. Highly recommend everyone to take this tour. Our guide Padraig was brilliant, his knowledge and detail of the events leading up to the rising is first class. I could have listened to him all day. Will definitely be back again.

Simply excellent. This is the tour that everyone is talking about. I finally understand why. If you are going to Dublin, book Rebel Tours. Don't be fooled by the watered down tours. Experience the real deal!
