    sean costelllo was a great pleasure to send the day with very knowledgeable witha terrific personality. he new his history and his love of his country made our experience very memorable. highly recommend 

  • Owen
    Having been born and lived in this great city all my life I thought I knew a lot about the place, how wrong was I? Spending 2 hours walking around and listening to Sean tell his stories is the most enjoyment anyone could get in this great city of ours. Not only is Sean very knowledgeable but is sense of humor is witty and uplifting. His knowledge of our great city is enormous and the route he took on our tour was enlightening. Finishing up in a city center hostelry for a pint of local brew was just what the doctor ordered. Keep up the good work Sean. Your City Needs You. Regards Owen

    sean presented a great tour o cork it was historical and very interesting. sean provided much information on the city and its history.
  • gearoid
    Sean brought a group of our first year university students on a historical walk of the city, and we were extremely impressed. They took loads from it, and their subsequent reports reflected that. This was based in no small part to Sean's engaging style. He truly did bring the history of Cork City alive. Every nook and granny had a story, and by the end, he had us viewing the city through different eyes. Well done again Sean on a superb job! We have our go-to guy for field trips in the future.
  • Ruth
    Sean is a fantastic source of information and he will deliver a rupreme tour that is dynamic and very interesting, pointing out to you things you'd never notice even if you pass that street or place every single day. I would definetely recommend him to anyone wanting to have a good approach to Cork history.
