Take a step back in time to the birth of an Irish tradition; story-telling, with a musical twist. Irish Mythology is much more than simply old-stories. They continue to shape how a nation sees itself. Beginning with one of the most famous stories of them all, Oidheadh Clainne Lir, or ‘The Tragedy of the Children of Lir’, be prepared to visit the Irish Other World, either underground to the ‘Land of Youth’ or westward across the sea to the land of Mag Mell, and witness the births, lives and deaths of heroes. At certain stops along the way, give your feet a rest and your ears a treat as Maitiú sings some of the songs that capture the spirit of an age as he takes you through time, before finishing up at the Irish famine memorial which resulted in one of the biggest voyages of them all. Meeting Point: Front Gates to the Garden of Remembrance
As a fluent Irish speaker, Maitiú takes great pride in showing tourists the rich traditions of his island, beyond the stereotypes. Apart from being a gifted linguist, Maitiú is also in a band, and if you’re lucky, you can also listen to him break into song on some of his tours.
Amazing walking tours for backpackers! We love Matiu's tour in Dublin! Totally worth it! :D
Maitiu was excellent on every front; well informed, flexible and amusing, only wish he sung more! Got to see the major landmarks in Dublin and gained valuable insights into the Irish psyche and struggle for independence, which perfectly complimented our trip around Kilmainham gaol. We all thank Maitiu once again for his intelligent and insightful tour.
I book this tour for my family from California and they were very happy with the guide - Ciaran. The walk included a lot of great stories and let them feel the vibe of the city - it was truly great experience! And they learn a lot about history and architecture of the city.Communication about all logistics was smooth and effective. I highly recommend the tour and Ciaran!
We had a real great time at Dublin. Maitiù did a very good job on our tour. We learned some interesting things about your culture and history within that short time frame.
We have done a lot of tours around Europe and Maitiu has been our best guide to date!
I had a wonderful experience with this group. Maitiu had people singing and answering questions about Dublin, which was fun to have everyone involved. I would highly recommend!
Joined in on Maitius walking tour of Dublin. Maitiu has a great talent for getting everyone involved with the tour - between acting out the history of Dublin to singing folksongs, there isn't a dull moment! Plus he's multilingual. Great tour, I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Dublin.
Maitiú brought us through Dublin, telling stories, singing and bringing it all to life, he even had us acting out scenarios from history on the streets. Great way to see Dublin.
Had a great tour of Dublin today from a friendly and excellent guide. Booking and payment through the Stroll app was very easy, I can't imagine a better experience.
We had Maitiu during our time in Dublin, extremely knowledgable and passionate about Dublin and its legends. Maitiu even taught us some Irish folk songs and I got to sing with him call and response.
I did a tour with you last August and was really fun, funny and interesting. I definitely recommend everyone visiting Dublin with you!!!
