1916 Rebellion Walking Tour

Learn about the 1916 Rebellion in Dublin with this interactive walking tour. Avoid the hassle of navigating and follow your guide to important landmarks including City Hall and Dublin Castle. See bullet holes marking the exterior of the General Post Office and hear stories from a local about revolutionary figures including James Connolly and Michael Collins.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at the International Bar in the heart of Dublin. The tour begins with an introduction to the history of the revolutionary period in Ireland, beginning with the Irish Famine of the 1840s and culminating in the 1916 Rising.

The first stop on this walking tour is Trinity College, followed by Old Parliament and a stroll over the Rosie Hackett Bridge. Here the guide shares stories about the women of the revolution, from Countess Markievicz to Rosie Hackett. The guide also points out Liberty Hall and explains the role of James Connolly in the 1916 rising.

The tour continues at Daniel O’Connell’s memorial and then at Jim Larkin’s statue. History comes to life in seeing the bullet and shrapnel holes still marking the exterior of the General Post Office on O’Connell Street.

Learn about this tumultuous time in Irish history as you walk to see one of Michael Collins’ offices, the Henry Grattan Bridge, and City Hall. The final stop is a visit to Dublin Castle, the seat of the British Administration before 1922.

The tour finishes at Dublin Castle, but participants are invited back to the International Bar for an optional refreshment or lunch.

Very informative and well-done!

Our guide, Kevin, was very obviously passionate about his Irish History and explained it to us beautifully. Well done and completely worth it. I learned enough in those two hours to want to continue to learn more on my own. Thanks Kevin, great job!

The meeting point is centrally located, but make sure you hop on inside the bar to find the tour group. The introduction downstairs in the bar lounge was very informative and gave a great backdrop of why the Easter Rising happened when it did and...More

The walk lasts about two hours or a little bit more as I recall but not exhausting as frequent stops. I have some difficulty physically with walking distances or too fast but I had no issues.
