The city has a 2000-year-old history that spans from the Celts to the modern day.

Our walks will bring you to places of interest often missed by most tourists.

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.

Testimonials

 

Docklands Tour, Tripadvisor

"I've spent a great morning, discovering very many interesting, sad and humorous facts about this area of town and Irish history. My tour guide Dave was excellent company. THANK YOU!!!" 

 

 Dublin Highlights Tour, Tripadvisor

"We hadn't been to Dublin before, and had limited time on this visit. The highlights tour was a perfect introduction. At the end of our 2 hours plus, we felt we had a basic understanding of the layout of the city, of its architecture and of its history, all conveyed with humour and expert knowledge by our lovely guide, Isabelle. A great experience, thank you!"

 

Best of Dublin, Tripadvisor

"Maggie was our guide and showed us a huge quite courtyard that was like an oasis in the middle of the bustling city. This part of the tour intrigued me because I had walked past the entrance to the courtyard several times during the days before the tour and never noticed the entry way off of the busy street. Take the tour. It's worth it."

 

Get Your Guide " Sehr informative, lustige und entspannte Stadtführung! Sam - unser Stadtführer - war wirklich toll. Die Stadtführung war sehr informativ. Sam hat alle Fragen ausführlich beantwortet. Als geborener Dubliner hat er wirklich sehr viel Wissen über die Stadt. Noch dazu ist Sam ein guter Sänger und hat uns auch noch ein paar irische Nationallieder geträllert. Die Stadtführung ist auch gut für Kinder geeignet."
