What people are saying about Tollymore Forest Park

From start to finish lot of laughs. I loved Lar. He was so funny! I appreciated his knowledge of the movies, and enthusiasm for making the tour upbeat and energetic. Lar did a great job interacting with not only the quiet people in our group but also the more energetic talkative people like myself. He has a tremendous amount of patience needless to say. Hahaha I’d almost consider taking the tour again to socialize further with him the next visit to Dublin.

Excellent, wonderful and such entertaining tour! If you're a die hard GoT fan, this tour is for you. You will get immersed in the world of westeros with plenty of behind the scenes stories and videos of the show making and actual props from the set. Our guide was excellent and told us a lot of filming facts from the sets having been an extra on the show himself.

What a fantastic fun day this was! Everything was very well taken care of, you got a very unique, educational and funny insight into the film locations and scenes and our guide (Lar) knew how to make everyone happy in their own way. Worth every penny!

Excellent tour, we visited beautiful places and learned a lot of information about our favorite show we had an amazing time, the guide and the driver were incredible !

It was a great day, saw many beautiful locations, heard stories. We had a great guide!
