She was completely right about the 4 season in the same day 😅😂 I really enjoyed it, my best part was the cemetery, it was a tragedy but kind of funny.

We loved this excellent walking tour of the Cathedral Quarter in Letterkenny. An excellent guide with a marvellous blend of history, fun, knowledge, legend, facts and gossip. We would recommend her to anyone who wants a great afternoon in a City steeped in history. Loved it. Thanks so much from Chris & Pam Smith

What a great experience for anyone who loves history and gaining insight into the culture, both past and present, of an area. Amanda is a local and possesses a thorough knowledge of the area and people. She laced the historical facts with many stories that brought the history to life. The stroll around Letterkenny is beautiful. And even better she is warm and charming. She shared tips and ideas with me to make my stay better. Ideas of what to see and do. Cannot recommend this tour more highly!!

Really nice little walk, learnt a lot I couldn’t have in classes. Amanda is so charming and knowledgeable, she showed me how people’s lives are alike in modern days and connect such with historical events. I’m still thinking after two days, quite enlightening!
