Tour description provided by Viator

See Dublin’s top sights on this 2.5-hour historical walking tour. With a professional guide, walk by famous landmarks, from Trinity College to Dublin Castle to relics of the city’s Viking past. Stroll around colorful Temple Bar, and encounter hidden cobbled alleyways and graceful Georgian mansions. As you walk, your knowledgeable guide will share interesting facts and stories about the attractions you see.

With your knowledgeable guide, start your tour in central Dublin and walk through Dublin's broad streets and narrow passageways to admire the city’s famed historical sights. A map is also provided, which you can keep to use after your tour, if you wish. Pass by the former Houses of Parliament and make your way to Trinity College, the oldest university in Ireland. Stroll past City Hall before wandering past the garden of Dublin Castle. Then, see Chester Beatty Library, the medieval city wall and a beautiful vantage point that overlooks St Patrick’s Cathedral. Hear how the cathedral was a favorite place of worship of the renowned Anglo-Irish author Jonathan Swift in the 18th century, and then stroll along Fishamble Street (the site of the first performance of Messiah by George Frederick Handel) and Christ Church Cathedral (first founded by the Vikings).
