Dublin - over a thousand years of history
From St Patrick to the Vikings to the Anglo-Norman conquest to Independence, this tour will give you a taste of the highlights that Dublin has to offer.
Strolling around a city is the best way to take in the sights and it can be paced to suit you and customized to suit your interests.
And having a local guide who knows the history, the museums and galleries, the streets and bridges, the pubs and shops make the tour all the more interesting and enjoyable.
You'll see where St Patrick baptized people in the 5th century, where the Vikings moored their boats, where the British had their headquarters and where the 21st-century party-goers congregate.
We'll visit the best of Dublin at a relaxed pace and have time for a coffee stop.
We'll walk as much or as little as you wish; we'll nip into interesting buildings: we'll see great architecture and you'll learn what it is that makes Dublin such a vibrant city.
This tour covers central Dublin, south of the River Liffey. We'll visit the following:
Ireland's oldest university, Trinity College
Molly Malone statue
St Patrick's Cathedral
We might include places associated with our famous writers such as James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, or concentrate on Medieval Dublin and the Vikings.
