Kevin was amazing. An absolute wealth of knowledge and made us feel so welcome in Dublin. Thank you, Kevin!!
Kevin is a knowledgeable guide with a wealth of information on Irish history. I was a bit worried the tour would be focused on religion when he mentioned early Christian art and influences but since religion plays such an integral role in Irish history it is inevitably part of the conversation. I particularly loved the myths and legends element to the tour especially the mosaic mural off Nassau St. The information Kevin had about the Tuatha de Danann was so magical I almost believed it to be real. This tour is a good way to get some indoor history and culture on a city break to Dublin especially since Ireland's weather can be so volatile! Thanks Context and Kevin for a fun afternoon.
Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Makes history come alive. My one complaint is that the Book of Kells wasn’t on display (there as a replica). I should have been told his before the tour.
