What You Can Expect

Dublin Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College

This historical tour has long been a Dublin institution!

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 War of Independence and concludes with the Northern Ireland peace process.

We were met at Trinity College by our guide and set off from there. April 22, 2016.. I highly recommend this tour. This guide was extremely knowledgeable and perceptive.
I liked the stops we made at various points so that she could speak more in depth about the site we were at and so we could ask questions. Sometimes walking tours set up a pace and one just tries to keep up, but learns very little. Well, I learned a great deal about Dublin and where places are ... Very important if one wants to save precious time and not wander around wondering where it all is. Some of the highlights were Trinity College, Bank of Ireland, Temple Bar, Dublinia, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin Castle and the great history around them. Do this, and I hope your guide is as well versed and thoughtful as ours. Price is right!

Very good tour, comprehensive of the main old town. The guide found places for us to sit along the way and she was very knowledgeable, a PHD from Trinity.

Great tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and told great often funny stories about the history of Dublin, both ancient and recent. A great way to see the city centre and learn more about the city. Budget more than 2 hours, though--there is a lot to see and hear about.

Guided by a history graduate, this tour was a great introduction to Irish history. We started at University College, and got a good picture of the city and it's development, along the way more and more details were filled in. Importantly, there was no sense of being pushed to a schedule, or being limited to a particular rehearsed set of topics. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone new to Dublin.

Our tour guide Tommy was extremely informative and took the time to explain many of the great landmarks of Dublin City. He even gave us tips as to where to stay away from tourist traps and what great films to watch regarding the history/heritage of Ireland. Very easy-going and a good buy for your money - about 2 hours for the tour. Note: if you want to take the Literary Pub Crawl and see the Little Museum of Dublin, you get discounts for those tours from taking this tour. Also, make sure to take this tour at the start of your journey. We did ours at the end only because of scheduling.

Patrick, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about Trinity and Irish history, really making Ireland's struggle for independence come to life as we strolled the grounds at Trinity and the city streets. Going on this tour helped us see the city in a new light and to understand the significance of the buildings and neighborhoods around us. Highly recommend this tour!
