Unique Tour of a Unique European City.

VICTORY PARADE DUBLIN 1919 RETURNING WW1 IRISH REGIMENTS/UNION FLAG ON TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN

Welcome to Dublin Heritage Tours / Dublin Loyal Guided Walking Tour web-page. Established in 2011 we provide guided walking tours of Dublin's most iconic landmarks. Tracing the history of this unique City from it's first Royal Charter through to becoming the second City of the British Empire and eventually the capital City of the Irish Republic.

We are the only guided Dublin walking tour which covers entry and guided tour of St Patrick's Cathedral. Furthermore our tour focus is on Dublin's forgotten history, the city's Protestant and Unionist heritage and the expansion of Dublin during 18th Century. The role played by Trinity College Dublin in suppressing the 1916 Rebellion, and the sacrifice made by Irish men in the first world war. The ethos of our tour is to give our visitors an open and engaging history by making Dublin and Anglo Irish history a public narrative.

To get a real insight to our historical walking tour please read our history articles. As historians and professional guides, we our proud to place ourselves outside the main commercial Dublin Tourism industry, which the majority is represented by genetic walking tours of Dublin. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have special arrangement around your tour group weather it be transport or entry to specific historical location. Furthermore we offer 10% discount on student groups.
