Highlights of our MP3 walking tour

Take the tour on a weekday, and you can visit some hidden treasures, including a gem of a geology museum in an attic, and the steam turbine that made the 20th century possible.  Other amazing stories you’ll hear are how Dublin city dissected an elephant in 1681, and how the modern science of studying earthquakes began on Killiney beach in the 1840s with Robert Mallet.
