Það sem verður gert

The legendary tour centers around the tale of the Lynch family. Its a fascinating tale of how Walter Lynch is accused and tried for the murder of a visiting Spaniard who was a little too interested in his beautiful wife to be...or was he ? The story ends in a dramatic climax...but you will have to take the tour for that finale !

We also look at the legend of the Claddagh ring with a tale connected to Caribbean pirates, North African slave owners and a gold ring that speaks of eternal love.

Christopher Columbus makes his appearance too, looking for a new way to China, but worrying that Atlantis might stand in his way.

These and other tales are woven together in a 80-90 minute walk through the city. Its taken at a gentle pace to bring in all the major places of interest and embed them into the story of our city.
Other things to note
Dont worry about it raining - we have plenty of places to hide out of the rain !

SPECIAL NOTE: Experiences are always limited to 10 people, but if you would like a private tour please send me an enquiry to schedule a different time.

CHILDREN (under 16) are always free with us, and very welcome!
(and we have a few special stories waiting for them)

We have been running walking tours for over 10 years now, and just love the opportunity to show off our fabulous city. I have always loved history, and used to teach it when working as a educator. History is however so much more than the bare facts, so the stories that get wrapped around the events tend to be even more fascinating and memorable. It's a privilege to be part of the 'story-telling' tradition of the West of Ireland.

PLEASE NOTE : This tour is not aimed at 'History buffs', its about legends, stories, fun and 'getting under the skin' of Galway. Enjoy

Staðsetning

Galway is a fine medieval town, but it has alot of 'hidden' history. We start in the area of Eyre Square, looking for hidden history in the grand old Hardiman Hotel. After a diverting story about a stubbon Irish donkey we're then off to find Colombus' hidden drinking den, the city walls and even where Ed Sheeran knocked out tunes in his busking days. And that's before we get to the Claddagh rings and the Irish version of Atlantis !

Neil is a good laugh. I've been to Galway loads and thought I knew the the place well but Neil still managed to show me new places and gave some very interesting stories about Galway city.

Très bonne visite, super intéressante, on apprend toutes les petites anecdotes que seuls les natifs connaissent, c’est génial ! Et pour ceux qui n’aiment pas marcher sachez que je déteste ça et pourtant j’ai pas vu passer le temps. :)

Neil was an excellent guide. He was able to weave story and history into our walk, even while having to modify our route due to Ireland’s unpredictable (though ever impending) rain. Despite wind and a drizzle, he still made the walk feasible and fun and interesting. He pointed out things nearly everywhere, allowing me to see the rich history all around me and to give it meaning. I highly recommend!

An awesome tour! Felt like I really learned a lot about the area and got to see spots i wouldn't have discovered on my own.

He was easy to identify at the start, easily formed rapport, he tailored the journey to be extra inclusive of our interests and kids. I'm just really happy we booked this and met Neil, the experience completely made our trip to Galway!

First time going o a tour in Galway even though I have been to the city many times. I felt it was well worth while and I am glad I booked it. We were taken to places in Galway that I did not know existed.
