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.

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!
