We will walk beautiful Dublin streets and visit curious 1700's sites. Transport was slow and wit was quick! Dublin was a hotbed of intrigue and the Second City in the old British Empire. Yet it was difficult to find the action with censorship. Coffee Houses were where the news was printed! Known as penny universities, centres of commerce and trade where so much of Dublin life was lived. We will stroll for an hour stopping at significant points where duels were fought, merchants traded, information was exchanged and coffee was drunk. Was there tea & chocolate? We will immerse ourselves in the characters such as Johnathon Swift and how he got into hot water with the drapes. We will learn about the people who published, auctions which were held and lives which were lived by the new rich of 1700's Dublin. We will see how they influenced the arts, public thinking and trade. We will have quotes and drama to understand the players in a very different time. Then we will go to a stunning 1700's Coffee House and have a tasting experience. There may even be some entertainment in this secret location to help us relive this era. This is fun and light-hearted Tour with a Coffee Tasting Experience to imagine what 1700's Dublin felt, looked, smelled and tasted of for the Merchants and visitors. For tea lover we will spill the leaves on who drank tea, when and why. With china cups.
I have been a Tour Guide since 2010 beginning the journey at Castletown House a fine example of Palladian Mansion. Then onto Farmleigh House, a former Guinness Home and a fantastic, free place to visit beside the Phoenix Park. From there Áras an Uachtaráin the President's home beckoned. I worked on Hop on Hop Off bus tours and out of town locations including Wicklow, Howth and Galway. It's been brilliant meeting people from all over the world and having the opportunity to tell about my City. I have developed an interest and narrative about life in 1700's Dublin Coffee Houses and want to share this with you. If you are a tea lover we will discuss who drank tea, where it was consumed and how much fun a tea party could be!
