Ingenious tours of Merrion Square
An air raid shelter and Oscar Wilde’s trousers were some of the highlights of our very popular tours of Merrion Square, in September 2012. The tours included special access to several wonderful buildings, among them Ireland’s seismic monitoring centre, and were part of the September in the Square Festival, celebrating the park’s 250th anniversary. Enabled by Failte Ireland.
Our walking tours are a great introduction to Dublin: we include historic and landmark buildings such as Trinity College, and Leinster House, and we’ve got secrets for you and hidden Dublin places that you won’t find on any other tour.
