Dublin Historical Highlights Walking Tour

Christ Church Cathedral

With your knowledgeable guide, start your tour in central Dublin and walk through Dublin's broad streets and narrow passageways to admire the city’s famed historical sights. A map is also provided, which you can keep to use after your tour, if you wish. Pass by the former Houses of Parliament and make your way to Trinity College, the oldest university in Ireland.

Stroll past City Hall before wandering past the garden of Dublin Castle. Then, see Chester Beatty Library, the medieval city wall and a beautiful vantage point that overlooks St Patrick’s Cathedral. Hear how the cathedral was a favorite place of worship of the renowned Anglo-Irish author Jonathan Swift in the 18th century, and then stroll along Fishamble Street (the site of the first performance of Messiah by George Frederick Handel) and Christ Church Cathedral (first founded by the Vikings).

Continue along the western section of Temple Bar, Dublin’s popular nightlife and culture district, where your tour ends. Before leaving your guide will give you a discount card that can be used at the following Dublin attractions and eateries:

I loved Catharine's tour of her city! A nice sampler of Dublin history and sites, we did this as our first thing in town and used it to decide what we wanted to go back and see/investigate further.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This was a great tour, wonderful tour guide and it gave us avery good introduction to the city which we were able to enjoy on our own after that. Great buy.

This was terrific! I learned so much walking around the area. I did this the first day of the trip and I know where I wanted to return to. The guide can't remember the spelling of his name, but he likes history and was a student in Astrophysics at Trinity -- go figure was so knowledgeable and give us good hints about getting around on our own. I would recommend this to anyone and the first day of their trip - then you can get back to see it better later.

Probably the best way to see downtown Dublin, Trinity College, Dublin Castle and other sights within walking distance. The guide was knowledgable, funny and helpful. It does involve quite a bit of walking, as expected, but the two and half hours flew by as we walked around looking at historical buildings and hearing about Irish history. The walk was well planned so that you see most of what is important in Dublin and get a good idea about how things have evolved over the years. Highly recommended.
