Few cities wear history on its sleeve like Dublin does! The Historical Walking Tour has been acclaimed as a must-do tour for any visitor to Dublin and starts at Trinity College main gates. It takes in the grounds of Trinity College, Old Irish Parliament, Dublin Castle, City Hall, the Medieval and Viking quarter centered around Christ Church Cathedral and finishes in the old port of Temple Bar on the banks of the River Liffey.
Your guide has a passion for all aspects of history and will be delighted to discuss anything which might be of interest to you. Dublin combines a medieval city with the most stately of eighteenth century architecture and a thriving contemporary cultural scene. Behind the doorways, at every street corner there are reminders of the characters - revolutionary, literary and others - who imagined the city.

In just 2 hours, this entertaining 'seminar on the street' conducted by history graduates of Trinity College Dublin, explores the main features of Irish history - Dublin's development, the influence of the American and French Revolutions, the Potato Famine 1845 - 1849, the 1916 Rising, the great War and the 1916 rising, the war of Independence, the Northern conflict and Ireland today.

The walking tour was so great! Our guide Alex is a PhD candidate in Irish history so he was able to tell us all about the political and social climate of Ireland as we toured the beautiful buildings. He was also able to add information about the various architectural styles we observed. Since the wind was very cold, he tried to keep us sheltered as much as he could as he provided the tour. Unfortunately I didn't get to complete the tour since I had to get to the airport. It was a great way to fill time, learn more about Dublin and see the sights. I highly recommend this tour.

great way to see areas of major importance such as Trinity College and hear great tidbits, but also go thru small streets and areas we may not have found on our own . highly recommend taking this tour I also enjoy meeting other travelers and chatting during walk.
