You don’t need to be Irish to eat, drink and laugh your way through history on this tour.
You will learn about the rich Irish heritage of the area, and discover some little known Irish pubs and clubs.
You will hear how the brave Irish immigrants shaped the area in which we live.

“It’s not about being Irish,” states Eddy Dobosiewicz, one of the personality tour guides, “It’s about discovering something that you never knew existed before in your city.
It’s great to watch people rediscover the legacies and traditions behind our region.
