While you are in port in Dublin, head out on a historical walking tour shore excursion. This must-do tour starts at the main gates of Trinity College, Dublin’s famed place of higher education and home of the Book of Kells. With your Trinity College graduate guide, explore the grounds of Trinity College, and see the Old Irish Parliament, Dublin Castle and City Hall. You’ll also visit the medieval Viking quarter, positioned around Christ Church Cathedral, and the Temple Bar district on the banks of the River Liffey.
Not your average walking tour, this historical shore excursion in Dublin is led by a guide who graduated with a history degree from Trinity College, the oldest university in Ireland. Your guide has a passion for all aspects of history and will be delighted to discuss anything that might be of interest to you.

Start your walking tour at Trinity College, where you can see the famous Book of Kells (entrance fee at own expense). Then make your way past the top sights of the city with your guide. Dublin is a city of many faces, home to a medieval quarter, stately 18th-century architecture and a thriving contemporary cultural scene. Behind the doorways and at every street corner you’ll find reminders of the characters – revolutionary, literary and otherwise – who made the city what it is today.

In just two hours, this entertaining 'seminar on the street' allows you to discover Irish history, from Dublin's development and the influence of the American and French revolutions to the Potato Famine, the 1916 Rising, the War of Independence and the Northern Ireland peace process.

Your tour ends in Temple Bar, Dublin’s cultural quarter. This maze of cobbled streets is nestled on the south bank of the River Liffey, in central Dublin.
