Fantastic interactive history lesson
I was slightly dubious at first but so glad we went. A great way to learn the history of Dublin with our tour driver. We combined the trip with the GPO Witness History tour which is a brilliant and interactive museum experience located in the building where the rising began. Would Recommend!
