A great guide who knows a lot of stuff and can talk about it interestingly. He knows where to go for a nice walk, and also where to go for a tasty Irish beer... but wherever you go, you will hear a good story and for sure, you will have fun.


He is simple fantastic!! I met him the first time I went to Dublin and we had a nice and interesting chat. Then one year later I was again in Dublin with some friends and I contacted him for his famous poet tour and it was really wonderful. He is really great becasue he makes you feel part of the literary story of dublin, and when he plays poems... it is impossible to describe that. You have just to go and look and listen to him!
