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!

  • Rating: 2 “Waste of time”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Santa Clara, United States on March 30, 2014 It wasn't a very engaging tour. Too long and not enough varied stories. Didn't show any of the hidden cool spots in Dublin. It felt like a religious walking tour as everything was being tied back to Christianity. Perhaps that *is* the history of Dublin and I need to be satisfied with that.


  • Rating: 5 “Great tour guide!”

    Reviewed by Rachael from Inverness, United Kingdom on March 28, 2014 Fab tour! Our guide was so lovely. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to everyone.


  • Rating: 5 “Just worth it.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Graz, Austria on March 27, 2014 Nice sightseeing tour and cool side facts about traces left by St. Patrick in Dublin. To be recommended :)


  • Rating: 3 “Good tour, bad broadcast”

    Reviewed by Malise from Mandeville, United States on March 26, 2014 Our walking tour of Dublin on St. Patrick's Day had great potential and we covered a good distance at a brisk pace, but a good bit of valuable history and information was lost to the noise of the streets. Instead of waiting for a bus or noisy vehicle to pass, the tour leader (Pauline) kept talking. As we were a group of 25, we could not all gather round close enough to hear. We missed quite a lot of what was discussed as we stopped on the streets. Off-street, she was excellent, informative and it showed that she loves her city and her heritage. My suggestion is for her to slow down enough to let the vehicles go by and make certain everyone is able to hear the information.

    If that had been done, I'd give it 4 stars!


  • Rating: 5 “An enlightening afternoon”
