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 great War and the 1916 rising, the war of Independence, the Northern conflict and Ireland today.

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.

We took this tour the day we arrived in Dublin. We took the late afternoon tour and it did a great job of getting loosened up after the plane ride. The introduction provided by the guide on the history and politics of Ireland served us over our two week trip. We often referred back to things that he had told us. It is a great introduction to both Ireland and Dublin.

One of my favourite tours of my holiday. The tour guide was full of so much information and added a light hearted approach to the whole walking tour which was great. Covered a lot of ground but didn't feel rushed through each site which was great. At the end he also provided us with recommended places to eat. Definitely a must do!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

We learned so much history from our history graduate guide. His enthusiasm was wonderful. He had so much he wanted to share with that our scheduled 2 hour walk actually lasted closer to three hours. I would not hesitate to recommend the Dublin Historical Tour to anyone
