Hear the stories of those who worked in transport in Dublin City, as you walk alongside the lines of the modern day tram network. Starting at Dawson Street Luas Station, join us for a whimsical look at the history of public transport in Dublin City. Your tour will begin with a brief history of Dublin’s tram network, from humble beginnings, to the days where Dublin was the envy of the tram world, and onto to the inevitable yet regrettable demise, and right back to today’s Luas system, the lines of which your tour will follow. Over the course of the tour you’ll gain a wholesome insight in what it was like to be a Dublin tram driver in the early 1900s, hear the tales of a couldn’t care less private bus driver in 1920s Dublin, and find out some of the ways the railway men used to procure a few free pints of porter. Your tour will end at Harcourt Luas Station, a once bustling railway terminus where past events were responsible for possibly one of the most famous railway photographs ever produced.
