See where the Vikings first settled, and the black pool - Dubh linn - from which Dublin got its name...learn about the development of Dublin Castle from a medieval fortress to a Georgian palace...explore the Cathedral quarter, with tales of saints and reformation...visit the remains of the original city wall and hear about the ghosts of Dublin.
I am a native Dubliner, with a great love of the culture and history of the city. Having completed Cultural & Heritage studies and Tour Management Studies I received my qualification from Fáilte Ireland (Ireland's National Tourism Body). I have been working as a tour guide since 2015 specializing in the Viking and Medieval history of Dublin City. I have worked in cultural institutions such as the National Concert Hall, Dublinia (the Viking and Medieval Heritage center) and St. Patrick's Cathedral. I have a deep knowledge of the everyday life of Viking and Medieval Dublin and conduct private tours of Viking and Medieval Dublin and St. Patrick's Cathedral. I also give talks on the street names of Medieval Dublin.
I will show maps and images of Viking and Medieval Dublin for comparison with the modern city.
The tour starts at Dublin Castle, wends its way through medieval streets to the Cathedral Quarter, where we learn about the history of Christ Church Cathedral, and see the remains of the 13th century Chapter House...from there we visit the Viking Quarter, stand in the footprint of a Viking house and hear about everyday life in the 9th century, and see the original medieval city walls, with tales of monks, ghosts and reformation along the way.
