Great performance, learned a lot about history of Irish in a entertaining way. The actor spoke clearly and was easy to understand. The background music gave the performance a special feeling of falling down the rabbit hole into historic Ireland.

Recommended by Trip Advisor sticker on the front door, right next to the"Closed" notice. We paid for this tour, and upon arrival we found it closed, and their website inactive. With no way to get a refund, these people are officially criminals.
