Firstly, what is your name? Garbhán or Garvan??
It’s really just the one name. ‘Garvan’ is the anglicised, or English, version of ‘Garbhán’, which is an ancient Irish, or Gaelic, name.
Do your tours have fixed days and times or could we hire your services as required?
Some tours, e.g. haunted tours, have fixed times, but that doesn’t mean you can’t book when you want. Contact me with a date, time and place, and I’ll let you know if I’m available.
What is the duration of each tour?
I take many factors into consideration such as amount of walking, age group, specific topics to be covered etc. It can be as short as 1 hour to as long as 4 hours (including a break for lunch). Indeed, I can tailor the length of the tour to suit your needs.
Is there more than one type of tour?
Yes. What are your interests?
Irish history? The Celts, the Gaels, Emigration, 1916 Rising or something else?
Irish culture? Mythology, songs and music, modern society?
Literature? The Book of Kells, Navagatio Brendani, Irish stories, Modern greats?Fun? All the tours are fun!
What are the prices/fees?
Again, it will depend on many factors: are you a group of students? Would you like to pay per person or per group? How long would you like the tour to be?
Once I get a general idea of your situation and needs, I will quote you a price. 20% of the fee is paid upon reservation through PayPal and remainder once the tour is complete.
How do I book a tour?
Simply get in contact by email (garvan.rushe at gmail.com – replace ‘ at ’ with ‘@’), phone (+353 86 30 444 33) or facebook (‘Dublin Tour Guide’).
Tell me a bit about who you are, when you’re coming to Dublin, what you’d like most of during a tour, and when you would like the tour.
