Ireland’s capital has a wealth of attractions, most within easy distance of each other. This walking tour will show you the highlights of an area, which remained virtually undeveloped until the founding of Trinity College in 1592. The mid-18th century saw the beginnings of a construction boom. During this time, magnificent public buildings such as, the Old Library at Trinity College, Leinster House and the Bank of Ireland were built. However, as you’ll see, the most conspicuous reminders of Georgian Dublin are the beautiful squares and terraces around Merrion Square.


Arriving to the city center, you’ll start your walk from Merrion Square. For generations Dublin’s pubs have been at the center of its social life, and the meeting place for some of its greatest writers and wits. They are famous the world over for their friendly spirit of ‘craic’ – the Irish word for a good time. One of its charms is that each pub has a very special character. Following your walk, you’ll stop off at one of the city center’s typical pubs to enjoy a drink in the companionable dark of the historic snug, or in the brassy mirrored brilliance of the public bar. At the end of the pub visit, you will venture out for a brief walk through the grounds of Trinity College before returning to your coach.
