About this event

A great walking tour around the perimeter of Mountjoy Square which has links to famous Dubliners and fascinating history.

Mountjoy Square is our city's only true Georgian Square, a truly fascinating location with strong links to many famous Dubliners and striking buildings that, against all odds, survived the wrecking ball.

In this guided walking tour of the 560 metres route you will explore some notable people and events associated with houses on Cearnóg Mhuinseo as it’s known in Irish, including Arthur Guinness, WB Yeats, and even U2!

You, too, can learn all about top-secret assignations to plan the Easter Rising, early covert meetings of the Dáil, and the Oscar-winning movie filmed here.

From now on when you book any of their walking tours you will receive a discount code of 20% for the Epic Museum, voted Europe’s top tourist attraction in 2019 - 2021.
