The Ireland of today has been shaped by a long history of risings, rebellion, revolution and war which saw Ireland cease being a dominion of Great Britain and indeed trigger the Empire's demise. Much of this turbulent history was played out on the streets of Dublin and this tour will take you through the key events, the lives of iconic figures, as well as the ordinary Dubliners, of those times - this is more than a 1916 Easter rising walking tour as you'll learn of the Lockout, Home Rule, WW1, the Easter Rising, the War of Independence and the Civil War and eventually the establishment of the Irish Republic as well discussing how things stand in the Ireland of today.

An exciting, interesting and entertaining journey through what was an important and bloody period of our capital's, and country's, remarkable history, this extended 1916 Easter rising walking tour is available to book as a private tour and we can gladly cater your tour to suit your preferred route, length, times and even provide free collection at your accommodation or desired meeting point where possible – Just click on the contact button.
