Customer Reviews

  • Highly recommended! ★★★★★5 Review by Zebi At first we thought that this would be a regular walking tour - don't be mistaken. Donal is a very good story teller and goes into the history of Belfast and takes you on a journey of the making of the city. A major plus of this tour is the Mic headsets that Donal supplies, which makes the experience much easier to follow without interruptions. This is suitable for everyone ( including groups ) and for a 2 hour tour is worth every penny!
  • Donal Kelly's Mike 'n' Hike tour ★★★★★5 Review by Christian Pierce I took Donal's Mike 'n' Hike tour with my parents last summer. We had a wonderful time walking through downtown Belfast with his guidance. Not only is Donal knowledgeable about the history of Belfast to a ludicrous degree, he's able to bring it all across in an interesting way. It's clear that not only has he done quite a bit of research, but he actually enjoys what he does. I can say that you will be getting a pretty good view into the history of Belfast, why it is the way it is today and of course the history of the native industries and the remnants thereof. The whole time, you will be with someone who is very friendly and encourages questions and engagement. Do not waste the opportunity.
  • Donal’s MicnHike tour is by far my favourite ★★★★★5 Review by Chloe Of all the tours I have been on, Donal’s MicnHike tour is by far my favourite. Donal offers a comprehensive and enlightening tour, that stretches out over the quarters in the city. As someone who has worked in the tourism industry for a number of years, Donal’s tour surprised and delighted me as I learned more about my home city than I could have possibly imagined. Suitable not only for tourists but locals as well, MicnHike teaches you of the deep, rich cultural history that Belfast has to offer – seeing places that you’ve known your whole life through a different lens. I cannot recommend Donal’s tour enough to those wanting the full Belfast experience.
  • Our walking tour of Belfast was excellent . ★★★★★5 Review by Mary Cullen Donal Kelly was informed and very knowledgeable. He made allowances for one of our party who was unable to walk as quickly as the rest of us and the two hours seemed very short! As a native of Belfast I found his tour particularly interesting and I have no hesitation in recommending him whether you are a local or a tourist! The Mic system works very well and makes it very easy for the whole party to keep up with the commentary. Mary
