Capel Street and the River, a deeply atmospheric area of ancient markets and vanished monasteries: your private tour.
Includes how Capel Bridge and Capel Street arose from the ruins of two medieval abbeys; as well as architecture on Capel St, Green St and around, the Green St courthouse and debtors prison. We’ll discuss the Robert Emmet trial; see old tram works, and view wonderful old Victorian market buildings, with their rich terracotta decoration.
From there we’ll walk to Henrietta St, the jewel in Dublin’s Georgian crown and finally to the incredible King’s Inns, a masterpiece of 18th century Georgian architecture, by the great James Gandon.
