The Best of Dublin -- The Complete Heritage Walking Tour -- From 01 April 2013
Description: This enchanting walk, taking in all the highlights along the historic ‘Golden Kilometre’, travels through broad streets and narrow passageways, often following the line of their ancient predecessors. We will visit or pass the former Houses of Parliament, Trinity College, shopping areas including Grafton Street and Bewley’s (Dublin’s oldest café), Powerscourt Townhouse (an 18th century Georgian Mansion, now part of a shopping centre), City Hall and the Chapel Royal before wandering past the courtyards and the Gardens of Dublin Castle, the Chester Beatty Library, medieval city walls, the Old City & Temple Bar West, Fishamble Street (site of the first performance of Messiah by George Frederick Handel), and Christ Church Cathedral (first founded by the Vikings). Along the way you will encounter mementoes of vast archaeological discoveries revealing Dublin’s rich Viking and Medieval past. There will be an opportunity at the end of the walk to purchase a special combination discounted entry to Guinness Storehouse (€14/€13 students) or the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery (€12/€9.50 students, seniors). Tour tickets include discounts in The Church Café/Bar and Bewley’s, Dublin’s oldest café.
