From EUR 15
This exceptional 2-hour 20-minute tour is the best introduction to the richness the city has to offer. It takes in many of Dublin’s icons and guides you to some wonderful hidden spots too. If you are looking for a relatively comprehensive tour that gives you the best taste of the city centre on both sides of the River Liffey then this is the tour for you!
Starting from O'Connell Street the tour will finish close to Trinity College. On this gentle walk you will encounter many of the famous Dublin sites such as General Post Office, Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral among others. All these places certainly have their interesting pasts but the human stories associated with them often capture more than just their eventful histories. Our dedicated guides will share their love for the city with you and make you feel like a true Dubliner.
To crown all this, the tour will also introduce you to many secret gems and surprises that visitors and even Dubliners often miss. Find Dublin’s first but now defunct full-time cinema, a church that’s not a church, a former Lisbon tram now serving as a café. Discover an amusing representation of a da Vinci painting, feel the bounce of a wobbly bridge and enjoy the tale of a post-box that represents Ireland’s transition to independence. And not forgetting a naked 18th century composer!
Meeting Point: Please arrive 10 minutes before the tour starts at 59 Upper O’Connell Street, Dublin 1, outside the Dublin Bus Office.
