Brilliant for game of thrones fans however it was very rushed and easy to get stuck behind other slower guests which put us behind missing a lot of the tour speeches Also felt pressured into eating at restaurant which took up around 90 minutes and we didn’t know what we were paying for it til we got the bill . Would have preferred to have had a better walk and learn more and have a sandwich on the bus but everyone was bought in and we felt obliged to do so.

As a Game of Thrones fan, I cannot express how incredible this experience was! Our tour guide was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing but also made the entire experience feel incredibly immersive and fun. The Stark cloaks were also a really fun touch and actually quite warm. Plenty of opportunities to take photos in all these incredible locations but be warned that the pace needed to keep up and see everything is a brisk walk so be prepared to get in your steps! Even without the extra bonus of the filming locations, seeing the architecture and scenic landscapes makes it more than worth it

From start to finish lot of laughs. I loved Lar. He was so funny! I appreciated his knowledge of the movies, and enthusiasm for making the tour upbeat and energetic. Lar did a great job interacting with not only the quiet people in our group but also the more energetic talkative people like myself. He has a tremendous amount of patience needless to say. Hahaha I’d almost consider taking the tour again to socialize further with him the next visit to Dublin.
