Dublin Sightseeing Drive
Tour Participation Requirements
Dublin may not seem as glamorous as other European capitals, but Dubliners will tell you that pretty things are as easy to like as they are to forget. Which tells you as much about the people as the place.
As capital cities go, Dublin is quite small. But packed into its 44 square miles are countless castles and cathedrals, gilded government buildings, and classic Georgian-style homes. And this relaxed ride through town includes the best of the best.
You'll cross the iconic O'Connell Bridge over the river Liffey and gain an appreciation of the Georgian architecture at Four Courts and the Custom House, built during Dublin's most prosperous era. Hear wild tales from the Middle Ages, and about how Ireland's bravest men stirred an uprising that finally conquered the Viking settlements.
Marvel at the ornate Gothic architecture of Dublin's most famous landmark: St. Patrick's Cathedral, built near the well where Patrick himself baptized Irish heathens. Dating back to the 12th century, the Cathedral is the final resting place of one of Ireland's most beloved authors: Jonathan Swift, who penned the classic Gulliver's Travels. A fitting waypoint on your own travels in magical Dublin.
"Chance your arm"
The old Irish saying about taking risks to get what you want was born (or at least baptized) at St. Patrick's. In 1492, hostilities between the Butlers and Fitzgeralds drove the Butlers into the sanctuary of the cathedral. When Gerald Fitzgerald came to offer truce, James Butler was skeptical. Fitzgerald had a hole cut in the door so he could slink his arm through, risking loss of limb to prove good faith. Butler shook the outstretched hand, ending the feud and giving the English one of their many Irish expressions.
