A highlight of our tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland in July. Totally unexpected but Ronan both enlightened us about the Troubles in Derry and inspired us to remember what is truly important! Very highly recommended!

Thank you Ronan for telling the stories the way you do. I had only a basic understanding of the troubles but after your tour I feel very informed. You used very simple anecdotes to explain a very complex conflict in an unbiased way.

Ronan is witty, articulate, passionate and extremely knowledgeable. He has that very rare gift of bring history to life. Many guides know history but Ronan brings it to life.

You would need to book directly with McNamara's, or through the Concierge at your hotel. It is well worth the experience. Very passionate & knowledgeable. Enjoy.
