We spent a couple of hours on this historic Your, that take you around all the significant places of the 1916 Uprising. Really interesting and informative. The period costumed actors who hosted the tour are both brilliant. Don't hesitate to take this tour.

Fantastic tour with two engaging and extremely knowledgeable tour guides who re-enact the 1916 Rising. From the moment you step on the bus you are taken back in time. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish, a must do when in Dublin.
