In the Footsteps of St. Patrick

Our very special St. Patrick’s Festival walk is back again! See places and hear stories that most tourists and many Dubliners are unaware of! Discover the fascinating truth behind the legend of St. Patrick as we explore the man behind many a mystery or myth and his great legacies on Dublin and Ireland.   The tour takes in several ancient sites, including those between the city’s two great medieval cathedrals, finishing with entry into St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is included in the ticket price. Along the way you will pass by or through City Hall (if not closed for a civil wedding etc), Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral, the former Viking & Medieval Quarter, the Old City Walls, Lamb Alley (shadowing the route that St Patrick likely took when to he came to this area), St Patrick’s Park (where he baptised the locals) and finishing inside the Anglican cathedral that continues to bear his name since the first church stood here over a millennium and a half ago.   This tour takes place as follows: 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th March - 10:30am & 2:15pm 17th March - 2:15pm only 18th March - 10:30am & 2:15pm   Prices:  Adults: €17 Students & Seniors: €15 The price includes entrance to St Patrick's Cathedral. Children under 15 can attend the tour for free but must pay the entrance fee to the cathedral.   Duration: The tour takes about 2 hours, after which you can explore St. Patrick's Cathedral at your own leisure  

The Best of Dublin

Discover the best of south-city Dublin and enjoy intriguing architecture, history, events and stories right back to its Viking & medieval origins during this 2 hrs and 20 mins long tour. Dublin has so many great and well-known locations, each with its own fascinating tale. During this great tour we will also skirt past many obscure places that will either leave a smile on your face or come as a complete surprise. Starting close to the famous Molly Malone statue, the walk will meander past the former 18th century Parliament House and Trinity College, Ireland’s oldest university, before wheeling around buildings, streets and laneways with their own engaging stories on the way to Dublin Castle. Then, along by the extraordinary Chester Beatty Library, to the grounds of medieval St Patrick’s Cathedral and then to the even older Christ Church Cathedral. But it’s all the other treasures and tales that you will encounter that help to make this journey so memorable. Stories and mementoes of Bram Stoker and his Dracula, Jonathan Swift and Gulliver’s Travels, yarns about Vikings, knights and ghosts and of George Frederick Handel’s very first performance of his most famous choral work, Messiah, in a Dublin music hall in 1742. And, as they say, much more besides! On a Pat Liddy Walking tour, you will also receive a free visitor map and guide and discounts in Dublin’s oldest café, Bewley’s, in the Church Bar/Café and at the EPIC Emigration Museum.
