Description

Dublin is known for its Georgian architecture and your guide to Dublin starts at one of the most famous examples of this great building style - the City Art Gallery.  We'll tell you what to look out for there and about the sad story behind it over the next four or five hours, depending on how many breaks you take.
  As you walk down O’Connell Street you’ll hear the history of Dublin before you arrive at Dublin’s General Post Office, a key site in Ireland’s fight for independence. 
  After crossing the Liffey your walking tour of Dublin will lead you to the old Bank.  Opposite is Trinity College and again you’ll learn about the history and what to see if you want to go inside.  Hidden away in Merrion Square, our next stop, is a statue of Oscar Wilde, once a resident.  Opposite him is his pregnant wife - and the figure of a young man.
  In St Stephen’s Green is the Shelbourne Hotel where the brother of one of the world’s most detested men once worked - you'll hear who on your guide to Dublin.  On the other side is Newman House, the finest Georgian building in Dublin.
  Your Dublin guide will then lead you to Dublin Castle where Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, was once a civil servant  After visiting Dublin’s two most famous cathedrals, Christchurch and Saint Patrick’s your Dublin audio guide finishes at Temple Bar, for the best bars, cafes and interesting shops.
