Perfect for lovers of history, or anyone with Irish heritage, this Dublin walking tour provides a fascinating trip back in time. Ditch the guidebook, put away your phone, and let your local guide transport you into Ireland’s troubled past as you discover landmarks like Ha’penny Bridge and Custom House, and stories like the Irish Famine and the 1916 Uprising.

What to Expect

Greet your guide next to City Hall and stroll across the Ha’penny Bridge to Dublin’s north side. See neoclassical buildings like 18th-century Custom House and General Post Office and soak up local color amid the Moore Street terraces.

Learn about the million who died during the Irish Famine at the Famine Sculptures and those who fled Ireland at the Jeanie Johnston tall ship. Discover how famine started the march to liberation—and the worldwide exodus of the Irish people—and hear about the individuals, rebellions, and battles that finally led to freedom. The tour usually finishes at the Jeanie Johnston ship.

Good walking tour

We did a free walking tour with Steve Wilson. It covers a fair amount of ground, and he provided a lot of info. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get the 'lay' of the city.
