What people are saying about County Down

Wow wow wow that was our absolute highlight of our 5 day tour in Dublin. Mega Tourgide, who even played as an extra in GOT and died there 7 times, he just knew everything. All general conditions were in order and the photo shoot at the end was the highlight at the end of an unforgettable day.

So much fun, our guide was amazing! You could certainly tell he loves what he does! I travelled solo and the group was so friendly, all the GOT nerds in one place! Great tour highly recommend!
