Dublin Walking Tour
Across the Bridge
On the South Side
City Hall and Christchurch Cathedral
This is an outside walking tour, so we'll see the Houses of Parliament and the Dublin General Post Office from the outside and we'll walk through the grounds of Dublin Castle and see it from the exterior.
Is this tour accessible if I have mobility concerns? While we don't cover a large distance on the tour, nor do we take a fast pace, we will be walking the entire tour which includes cobblestoned streets. There are occasional opportunities to sit. If you have mobility concerns, please feel free to contact us before booking; we can help you decide if our group walk or a private walk, with a modified route, will be best.
