I highly recommend this as the first thing you do in Dublin. An extremely knowledgeable and engaging history grad student at Trinity College somehow managed to tell us a surprisingly in-depth history of Ireland from before the Vikings until the present day, along with the history of Dublin itself and many of the neighborhoods and buildings, while also taking us around and showing us the sites. Unlike many of the bus tours that are all gung-ho pro-Ireland, our tour guide gave us as objective a history as possible, not embellishing Ireland's stumbles out of a sense of patriotic duty. I walked away with a good sense of the city, and with a good sense of where Ireland is today and how it got there.
I also just love long scenic walks, so even if you don't care for history, this is an excellent walking tour.

Our guide Alex was brilliant! He brought to life the history of Ireland from the Vikings to the present day set in the context of Dublin's varied streetscape. This tour is a prerequisite for trying to understand the political and social complexity of modern Ireland.
