“From Green to Black or Gold” St Stephen's Green to Guinness or Pearse Lyons Distillery

This relatively short walk (90 minutes) packs a real punch. It links the historic St Stephen’s Green to the Guinness Storehouse and the Pearse Lyons Whiskey Distillery. On the way discover parts of the city rarely seen by visitors to Dublin. Travel through the very soul of the old city via a wealth of hidden gems, ancient sites, historic churches, the incomparable old Liberties Quarter where, they say, the ‘true’ Dubliners still live and play and it contains several whiskey distilleries.

Starting on St Stephen’s Green, the tour passes Whitefriar Street Church, which remarkably contains the remains of the famous St Valentine, before walking through some historic streets and the Dublin Literary Parade to arrive at St Patrick’s Cathedral. From there we travel on through the nostalgic Liberties Quarter passing a couple of distilleries, including the famous Teelings, before walking through the very heart of the inner city where you’ll encounter the locals who still speak in their own local accents as they move between their shops, markets and homes. Apart from places oozing history you will see two more whiskey distilleries before finishing at the iconic Guinness Storehouse Visitor Centre or the neighbouring Pearse Lyons Whiskey Distillery. There is an option of buying a discounted ticket to Teelings Distillery, Pearse Lyons Distillery or Guinness Storehouse. 

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.
