Celtic Pride and Irish Independence
 
Dublin has a rich 2,000 year old history, spanning from the Celts to the modern day; this curated walking tour will bring that history alive. Your tour will begin with a walk along the famed O’Connell Street, where you will see The Spire, Daniel O'Connell and James Joyce statues and the General Post Office. This is the very spot where the crowds gathered for the Declaration of Irish Independence and which became inspiration for poetry and literature of the era. You will hear all about the many writers and rebels from you knowledgeable local guide.

Stepping on the Ha’penny Bridge, a beautiful pedestrian bridge that once charged the eponymous half penny to cross, we will cross the River Liffey to walk within the hallowed campus of the famed Trinity College, Ireland’s first and most acclaimed university. Here you will hear about the college’s numerous treasures and tales of renowned past students, including Oscar Wilde and Bram Stoker.

 Classical Dublin

 Continue your turn about the city with a dive into some of Dublin's most famous architectural buildings, including the Neoclassical 18th century former House of Parliament and the Georgian-style City Hall.

In the courtyard and garden of Dublin Castle, you will explore the castle’s 800-year history. Near old Christ Church Cathedral you will learn about the area's history as a Viking settlement, and view the site of the world’s first performance of Handel’s Messiah.
