South-Central Highlights: starting from Trinity College – your private South Dublin Walking Tour:
- We meet you at the centre of Trinity College and show you around the historic campus in a way that most other walking tours will not be able. Trinity, founded 1592, was the alma mater of Edward Burke, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett. It also showcases some of the best examples of historic building styles from 1600 to 21st century. Our selection typically includes
- an 18th century “Temple”
- a modernist masterpiece library, and
- one of the finest Victorian era Gothic-Revival buildings in the world.
- We then travel west out Trinity’s front gate, into the very heart of the city centre to explore many of Dublin’s most iconic sights, including…
- College Green with its extraordinary procession of 19th-century grand bank architecture,
- a visit inside the old Parliament Buildings (open weekdays only)
- Dublin Castle,
- Temple Bar.
- We finish our tour around Christ Church Cathedral, the epicentre of old medieval Dublin.
- All along the way, we’ll help you interpret and contextualize what you’re seeing, with ideas and history covering everything from forgotten landscapes of Viking Dublin to the Williamite War, Georgian politics in the time of Napoleon, the odious Penal Laws, and the extraordinary 19th-century grand bank architecture of College Green.
