Wat je gaat doen

This is a walking tour of Dublin City like no other. Starting from Heuston Station, Dublin's main railway gateway to Ireland's South, Southwest and West, we will saunter, at your pace, along Dublin's City Quays and relive the rich history, innovative engineering and construction of all eighteen bridges that span Dublin's famous river all the way to the eastern most bridge at the mouth of Dublin Bay. Discover when the bridges were built, how they were built, who built them and why. Hear the fascinating stories, tragic and comic, ancient and recent, associated with these bridges and the areas around them. Learn about how and why the bridges were named, and the three phases of naming conventions that span over a thousand years of engineering. Discover the lives of pioneering engineers, architects, developers and patrons, from the Vikings to King John, James Butler to Bindon Blood Stoney and Santiago Calatrava. Become immersed in this historic world while you traipse trough its present, in the heart of Dublin. Stop and linger at a time of your choosing, and savour a snack, a drink, or something more substantial at any of the delicious cafes and eateries along the quays.
Other things to note
This is a leisurely stroll through the city centre, stopping as often as desired. Guests will be on their feet, walking or standing, for the majority of the tour, approximately 2 to 3 hours duration.

Verhuurt sinds 2018 op Airbnb
  • Identiteit geverifieerd
I was born and raised in Dublin where I have lived all of my life except for a soujourn in my young adult life building bridges and viaducts in Hong Kong. I cherish childhood memories of my native city whose social and cultural history resonate with me. I love to share these insights and stories with visiting guests. I am a lover of the outdoors, a qualified tour guide, bi-lingual in Irish and English. I have a variety of interests from sport to bridge building, from place names to hillwalking. I am easy going and will tailor my tour to your own personal preferences.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will walk along the North City Quays and guests will hear a richly informed commentary of each bridge as it is passed. The bridges are easily accessible, but so many of their stories are so little known. This experience will unlock those stories.
