Overview:

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin and take a special walk in honor of Ireland’s patron saint and his legacy. Learn about the relationship between pre-Viking Dublin and St. Patrick. Visit the medieval cathedrals of St. Patrick and Christ Church.

Description:

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in many parts of the world but none of the celebrations quite match the atmosphere of Dublin as it honors the country’s patron saint. Discover the fascinating truth behind the legend of St. Patrick and take a very special walk that focuses on the saint and the Dublin of his time.

The walk lasts for around 2 hours and 15 minutes. You’ll learn about the pre-Viking development of Dublin and how the city owes its origins to the legacy of St. Patrick. The tour takes in ancient sites, including those in between the city’s 2 great medieval cathedrals: Christ Church and St Patrick’s. See the places that most tourists and many Dubliners miss.

Admission to the interior of St. Patrick’s Cathedral is included in the price of the tour. Children, up to age of 16 years, can join the walk for free but will need to pay the EUR 4 entrance fee to the cathedral. There is also an optional escorted visit to the Guinness Storehouse available.

What's Included:

• Entrance to St. Patrick's Cathedral (EUR 5.50 value)

Good to Know:

Please try to book the tour at least 4-6 hours in advance to allow the local supplier time to arrange for an extra guide if the group is large.

Tours operate regardless of the weather. Anyway, it doesn’t rain that often in Dublin!

    Reviewed by Kev – United Kingdom on March 26, 2015 Walk around. dublin was very informative. Walk was perfect length and not rushed. I did email the eve before about pick up point but didn't get response. The pick up point was not the same as described. Website needs amending.


  • Rating: 3 “Interesting tour. But was cold, & we had trouble keeping up / hearing”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – United States on March 25, 2015 This tour was a bit misleading, as it was not very much about St. Patrick at all. Instead, it was more of a general overview of Dublin-- still very interesting, but not what we expected! Also, if you are going to book a walking tour, be sure you do it on a day when you have not already been walking/standing outside much. We were exhausted by the time we arrived at the tour and were therefore unable to make it to the end (the tour was quite long). Also, I thought they were going to take us into Christ Cathedral. Perhaps we left the tour before they did that, but we waited nearly two hours and never got to go inside any of the sites we were learning about. That said, the tour guide was of high quality, as was the material he presented.
