Terrific tour with a guide who is not simply reading a script but is steeped in the history and street life of Dublin. Lorcan is an excellent storyteller and used 1916 as a pivot to connect Irish (and world) history to contemporary events. Highly recommended.

I went on the 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour on November 12, 2017. It was the highlight of my trip to Dublin. Lorcan is very knowledgeable and entertaining.I recommend that everyone who visits Dublin should take this walk with him.
