On this FREE 3-hour* tour we wind down the quiet streets and bound through bustling boulevards, uncovering the hidden sites as well as the famous ones.
From the Celts to the Vikings, invaders have tried to tame this wild island, a place of legends, traditions, and folklore. 750 years of resistance and rebellion would culminate in the tragedy of the Easter Rising in the middle of the First World War. Testament to the will of the local people, just a few generations later Dublin is one of the leading business centers of Europe.
Join us as we explore 2,000 years of history. From some of the world’s greatest writers to dramatic and sometimes tragic events through the centuries, Dublin’s main export has been stories and guides are famous for bringing the past to life through their passionate delivery of the history of this vibrant city.
