This is a day tour of the city and the surrounding countryside of Dublin including the Dublin hills and Coastline.

In 1916 the Irish Republic or Poblacht na hEireann was proclaimed on the steps of the GPO when revolutionary volunteer soldiers took over the city of Dublin on Easter Monday in the middle of the First World War. In response British Government Forces shelled large parts of the city to destruction and there was viscous hand-to-hand street fighting. Inevitably the rebels were defeated and there leaders executed but Irish independence was achieved finally in due to their sacrifice in 1922.

This tour itself is designed to give you a great insight into the 1916 Rebellion, the history behind it, its leaders, the causes of this rebellion, what happened during it and the aftermath.

  • The full Irish... This tour goes beyond history; it’s an opportunity to gain insight into Irish culture and the nation’s people. You do not need to be a scholar of history to enjoy this; Locran is hilarious, informative and it’s worth going for the stories, jokes and laughs. A phenominal experience. Erin go Bragh.
  • We had a corporate away day in Dublin so 13 of us did the 1916 walking tour. The guide was great, hugely knowledgeable and the subject matter was interesting even on a fairly miserable day weather wise. They were also kind enough to arrange for 13 plates of excellent Irish stew and Guinness for us all after the tour ended at the International Club which is a great little bar.
