    What to Expect
    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).

    Continue along the western section of Temple Bar, Dublin’s popular nightlife and culture district, where your tour ends. Before leaving your guide will give you a discount card that can be used at the following Dublin attractions and eateries:
    • Church Café Bar: 20% savings on bar food
    • Abbey Theatre: 10% savings on tickets and merchandise
    • Bewley’s Café: 10% savings on food

    The hotel we were staying at recommended this tour and I am so glad they did. We had a large group of 18 people and our tour guide Pat H was hands down exceptional. He truly catered to the group's requests and exceeded all of the them. He was very knowledgeable, funny and nice.
