Description

Learn the history of a bloody battle waged in Dublin in 1916. Two authors of a book on the subject lead you on a walking tour around the city, observing the marks left on the landscape during the week-long insurgency. Understand this key event in Ireland’s fight for independence from Britain.

Meet Lorcan Collins and Conor Kostick – authors of The Easter Rising and your guides for the day – close to the Temple Bar district in the city centre. Hear about how 1,600 men, women and children took to the streets to overthrow the British leaders. Raging for six days, the struggle was violent and left hundreds killed, thousands wounded and many parts of central Dublin destroyed.

See the key sights around the river Liffey as your resident experts recount the events that precipitated the formation of the Irish Republic.

Dr. Conor McNamara gave us a fabulous tour. He gave us considerable context and invited discussion. Our appreciation of the participants in the uprising, especially of the leaders, has grown because of Conor's presentation. This tour was the highlight of our three day trip to Dublin.
