Streets & Statues of Dublin
The name of this guided walk, Street and Statues of Dublin, describes well the aim of the of tour. A walk at a leisurely pace leaves time to appreciate the lively streets of the City center and to discover the unusual statues commissioned to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of the City. Along the way, there are plenty of opportunities for getting an insight into Dublin’s fascinating history and to admire its most famous monuments. The city was founded just over one thousand years ago by the Vikings who settled on the bank of the river Liffey. As the city grew, elegant bridges were built and new streets were laid out to link the two sides of the river. Beautiful perspectives were thus created and from the bridges, there are magnificent views over the city and its monuments.
Statues of the Millenium
For its 1000 anniversary, the City commissioned statues in honour of its citizens and of some of its famous artists. They can be found at the most unexpected locations, adding a touch of homeliness to the charm of the City. The statue of Molly Malone, who sold fish on Dublin’s streets in the 17th century, may well be the most famous of all.
On the walk, you will have the time to admire some of the most famous monuments of the city. We will pass by the Castle, Christchurch Cathedral and Trinity College which is one of the oldest university in Europe. We will also take time to stop at the GPO which was at the heart of the 1916 rebellion.
