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.
What to Expect
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.
