Declan was wonderful and so knowledgeable! We e-mailed Declan an arranged the tour, so we could familiarize ourselves with the area in the short time we were there. It ended up being a private tour for our party of 3. We learned so much history and thoroughly enjoyed the area. He recommended the Locke Bar for lunch prior to walking... More

Declan, my tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable about all things Limerick. He talked about every single step of our tour of the city. There can't be much he doesn't know, and shares with enthusiasm and patience when asked to expound upon a particular element of his city. My interest was specifically, given my brief available time, was Frank McCourt and... More

We wanted to maximize our short time in Limerick, so we contacted Declan for a walking tour. We really enjoyed learning about the history of Limerick. Declan was super nice and gave us several suggestions for things to do after our tour.

I found out about these tours on TripAdvisor. I wrote Declan and arranged times on 2 different days to go on them. There were 6-8 people in each group and they last about 1-½ hr. and you walk about 2 mi. Declan is very congenial, very knowledgeable about the city's history and has an easy and sometimes witty manner of... More

This has been one of my favourite experiences in Ireland! He has such a love for and knowledge of the city, if you're in Limerick a walking tour from Declan is a must. We had walked by so many of the landmarks during the day that were covered in the tour that night without even knowing what we were passing... More

As a local resident of Limerick , I decided to experience my city from a new perspective and took a historical walking tour with Declan, our tour guide. He delighted our tour party with historical tales of Limerick that were perfectly timed so as not to overwhelm us with too much information but enough to keep us interested. Declan kept... More

This is a NOT TO BE MISSED activity in my opinion. Declan is a walking history book of this lovely city and you will come away with a great understanding and appreciation of Limerick, it's rich and long history and it's people. I suggest putting at the top of your to do list - and doing it first. This will... More

I would recommend this tour to all who are visiting Limerick. Declan was very informative and easy going, paced the tour correctly for us all, and gave us tips about what to visit afterwards. Excellent value for money.

We only had one day in Limerick, had not pre-booked this tour, just arrived at the tourist information office and joined the morning tour of the medieval quarter. The tour cost us €12 each, which included entry into the Hunt museum. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough - it was fantastic value for money. We were met by our... More
