Sample From the Itinerary:
This is a sample of the itinerary. The actual itinerary includes additional pictures, links and maps.
Spend some time soaking up the atmosphere and history of Dublin’s main thoroughfare. Start off at O’Connell Bridge for a view of the Daniel O’Connell monument. Daniel O’Connell is often called “The Emancipator”. During England’s rule over Ireland, he campaigned for Catholic Emancipation (the right for Catholics to sit in Parliament) and campaigned for the repeal of the unification of both parliaments.
From here you can also get a good view of The Spire – the world’s largest sculpture and the source of some controversy in Ireland. Many residents were outraged at the cost of the installation, while Bertie Ahern was Taoiseach, earning it one of its many nicknames “Bertie’s Erection”. It can also be referred to as “The Stiffy by the Liffy”. Pause outside the Kylemore café to view the James Joyce monument.
Cross over to the General Post Office (GPO), the HQ of the Irish postal service, but most importantly a symbol of the 1916 Easter Rising. The GPO was the headquarters of the uprising and the Proclamation of the Irish Republic was read from the steps of the building on Easter Monday by Padraig Pearse.
