Hidden History of Dublin Homes
This Hidden Homes Dublin walking tour takes us off the beaten path to explore how homes have been at the heart of Dublin life through the ages. What does “home” mean to you? Is it an apartment or a grand Georgian House? The objective is to give a fun and historical take to what we call home, from boarding houses to the tenements of the past. On Henrietta St we will see the first Dublin Georgian street, recalling the faded glory of these 1700’s mansions, when Dublin was considered the second City of the old British Empire. We will also visit the Victorian Fruit and Veg markets, ripe for redevelopment, an old Jail and Courthouse used for Special Criminal Cases in the Troubles, before crossing over the River Liffey to see the old port of Dublin, ending the tour outside a Spy Bar.
Meeting point: 14 Henrietta Street, Dublin 1
