The tour was very informative and the guide was friendly and professional but be prepared to come at least 15-20 minutes early to the pick up spot to get the good seats in a bus. We came 10 mins early as was suggested and the only available seats remain on the 2nd floor without roof which is not an option during winter time.

Great experience. Our guide was amazing. For the value i would highly recommend this trip if you have an afternoon and want to get out of Dublin. Even the food recommendations were excellent.

This tour was well worth it. Perfect half day adventure. Malahide was only about 40 minutes from the meeting point, maybe even around 30. Lots of history and they gave a good time on the tour. The ride to Dublin bay was about 30 minutes due to construction, truly beautiful there. I recommend this trip to anyone and especially if you have plans at night, this is perfect to do in the day.
