Què faràs?

Walking, history, culture and theatre; its a revolution

Please read our reviews for a great insight into this unique experience. This tour takes at least 2.5 hours and is ideal for passing an entire afternoon or evening. Our guides are qualified and published Cultural Historians.

This tour moves very much away from the beaten track and meanders back streets and lesser known locations including several theatre spaces. Imagine a walk among friends as we chat about history, writers, chancers, characters and dreamers. Learn about writers such as James Joyce, WB Yeats and Tom Murphy in a easy to follow story and how all their lives affected Galway and how Galway affected them. No need for tale tales and tourist packaged stories, our history is fascinating so let us unravel it together.

Truth is stranger than fiction and our fiction has often been strange; mix this with factual local history, anecdotes and lots of laughs!

This tour will combine a passion for walking, meeting new people, culture, history and Galway. I have a deep connection with the cultural melting pot that is Galway City and I am presently a doctoral student at NUI Galway.

On aniràs?

Starting from Tigh Neachtains on Quay St, we will visit Galway first theatre space on Kirwans Lane. We then visit the Galway Arts Centre: home of Lady Gregory, The Town Hall Theatre, The Nora Barnacle House, Irish National Language Theatre: an taibhdhearc and finally the home of the Druid Theatre Company. The tour generally takes 2-2.5 hours, it's an afternoon that sometimes goes on even longer..

This was an excellent and informative tour. Jonathan is obviously passionate about Galway, Ireland, the culture, the arts - in fact everything. In fact I'd say a rennaisance man in his overarching knowledge, interests, and ability to convey his experience and information in a friendly and relaxed manner. Jonathan engaged with us all with obvious interest and made us all feel comfortable. The walk was not physically onerous either.

Really enjoyed this tour. Jonathan knows this history up and down, and ties it in with the artists/writers/performers of the time. Learned a lot on this tour, not just the surface stories but the behind-the-scenes stuff that led up to what is known as Galway’s history.

What a great way to spend an afternoon in Galway! Jonathan was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and a wonderful storyteller. I highly recommend this tour .

You will not find any tour—or college course for that matter—that in such a witty and erudite manner weaves together the historical, political, literary and theatrical marvel that Galway is.

Jonathan was very knowledgeable about the history of Galway. It was an interesting tour and felt like he gave us a deeper insight into the area and some of Galway's inhabitants both famous and a bit obscure.

Great stories about Irish history and Galway's part in it. Jonathan really helped bring them to life, showing us places around Galway where the stories happened. We did get a bit wet, but, hey, it rains in Ireland. :)
