Celebrating 352nd Birthday of Jonathan Swift

A part of The Jonathan Swift Festival!   Join Pat Liddy and his guides in an entertaining walk around Dublin and unearth the streets and corners Swift would have known so well. Jonathan Swift is one of the great figures of world renown that once walked the streets of Dublin. Best remembered today for his novel Gulliver’s Travels, Swift was a talented, multi-faceted and complex character who combined his role as Dean of St. Patrick’s Cathedral with championship of the poor and oppressed. Through the medium of his novels and published proposals, he often put his position in grave danger through severe criticism of the governments of the day.   This walk will visit many of the places in Dublin associated with Swift and his works, including Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Fishamble Street, Hoey’s Court, Bride Street, St. Patrick’s Park, the Deanery, Marsh’s Library and of course St. Patrick’s Cathedral itself, entry to which is included in your ticket! Using quotations from his works and explaining the background, the tour explores Swift’s great mind and his lasting legacy.   Dates: Thursday 21st November, Friday 22nd November and Saturday 23rd November. Starting time: 2:00 pm Starting point:  Outside former church, St Andrew's St (beside Molly Malone Statue). Prices: €15 adults, €13 students/seniors. Price includes entrance to St Patrick's Cathedral. Booking essential as places are limited!

 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."
