This is a perfect way to experience Dublin as a Cruise Ship visitor with limited time ashore


We will start with a stroll through Trinity College, founded by Queen Elizabeth 1 in 1592 and view the ancient Book of Kells. From there we will cross the River Liffey over O'Connell Bridge and amble up O'Connell Street. Passing along you will see the General Post Office a key location in our 1916 Easter uprising leading ultimately to Irish Independence in 1922. Then to the North bank of the River Liffey and cross the Ha'penny Bridge, so named as it was originally a toll bridge-A truly iconic Dublin sight. Then into Temple Bar, our "Latin Quarter". A busy area for "Ceol Agus Craic"-music and fun-need I say more? Near here Handel's Messiah was first performed. From here to historic Dublin Castle dating back to 1204 and then to Grafton Street our premier shopping street thronged with buskers shoppers and visitors. Then to the Little Museum of Dublin situated in a 200 year old Georgian House overlooking Saint Stephens Green where if you are awarded the Freedom of the City you may graze your sheep.

A Recent Review of this tour

Peter was very friendly and flexible with our walking tour. He helped the men find a great shop to buy hats and showed us around Dublin. He took us to a small museum which was wonderful, as well as educated us about the famine. Very knowledgeable and great driver!
