The neighborhood consists of 3 streets that are just south of the river and run parallel to it. Temple Bar is lined with traditional pubs, street vendors, art and shops! While some of the neighborhood is covered in cobblestones, your experienced tour guide will safely guide you through the area using accessible routes.

Next, your private walking tour will lead you to Trinity College where you will experience one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures, the artistically decorated medieval bible, the Book of Kells. A stroll through the beautiful Trinity College Campus will take you back to the 18th century when the onsite magnificent Old Library building was built – the Library that now displays the illuminated illustrations of the Christian Gospels dating from 800 AD.!

Escorted by your guide, you will make your way St. Stephens Green, Ireland’s best known Victorian public park. Re-opened by Lord Ardilaun in 1880 for the citizens of Dublin. This 9 hectare / 22 acre park has over 3.5 km of pathways accessible for all users!
