What You Can Expect

Dublin Shore Excursion: Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College

Dublin Shore Excursion: Historical Walking Tour including Trinity College

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.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Dublin port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

in a word, Great! I could have sat in a room and listened to Donnel all day. Our guide has a love and passion for the city and the Irish that was clearly evident by the pride he took in the tour. This is the experience that every tourist is seeking.

I am sure this was a great our also, but we did not plan our day right and ended up not doing this one.

Very, very informed guide. A previous Trinity College graduate. More of a history of Ireland and Dublin than any comments about buildings, etc. Mostly a story of the wrongs done to Ireland by the UK. Got it early on but over 3 hours got a little old. Due to circumstances were not able to enter any of the buildings.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2013

We booked a historical walking tour through that lasted a couple of hours and started at Trinity College. The tour guide was very knowledgable but the entire tour turned out to be about the history of Ireland and the divide between the Catholics and Protestants and we did not go to some of the places listed in their description like Temple Bar and Ha'Penny Bridge nor did we learn much about the places we visited with the exception of a Catholic church that had been hidden in the back yard of a building during a time that they were discriminated against. There were some interesting parts but much of the time I had a hard time paying attention because the content was boring to me and not at all what I expected.
