Get to know the intimate history and stories of Ireland’s capital on this walking tour with local historian Alan Byrne
Have you ever wished to get to know more about Ireland’s capital city, its history, people, buildings, statues and stories? Looking for a safe outdoor activity to enjoy during Covid restrictions? What better time than join me on an afternoon stroll around Dublin? On the tour you’ll see how Dublin was founded by the Vikings a little earlier than you may realise, see how the Norman conquest reshaped the city, learn why we have two main cathedrals right beside each other, hear the stories of the Hell district of the 18th century (including a serial killer or two), discover the hidden stories in the architecture and place names of the city and get a new appreciation of the things we take for granted in our home town. Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, wheelchair friendly.
