Our Dublin tour is the best way to discover the capital, taking in the main monuments, neighbourhoods, and stories which make up the city. What's more, it's free!
Free Walking Tour of Dublin
The tour begins next to the town hall, in Barnardo Square.
During the free Dublin tour we will visit places such as Dublin Castle, the Town Hall, the Hotel Clarence, the mythical Temple Bar neighbourhood or Leinster House.
The Chester Beatty Library, described by the Lonely Planet as not just the best museum in Dublin, but one of the best in Europe and the medieval and Viking relics are must-see sights for any visitor to Dublin. And during the free tour we will visit all this, as well as Georgian Dublin and Christ Church Cathedral.
The tour ends near the university, in the famous Trinity College: we recommend that you stay a little while in this place full of history and legends. Don't forget to take a look at its enchanting library!
Among the stories we will recount, can be found the early days of the legendary rock band U2, the Easter Rising of 1916 which presaged independence, relations with the Vikings, Dublin's famous writers such as James Joyce and the legends surrounding 750 years of resistance in the city.
