Transfer to the center of Dublin, where your guided walking tour begins at Merrion Square in the heart of this Georgian capital. The first impressive building you will view is the National Gallery of Ireland, which contains many fine works by El Greco, Goya, Gainsborough and Caravaggio (among others). Continuing your walk, you’ll pass the Government Buildings and the Huguenot Cemetery before arriving at St. Stephen's Green. This open space consists of 22 acres of beautifully laid out and manicured parkland. It is a familiar and much-loved backyard to all Dubliners. Walking down Dawson Street, you will pass Mansion House – residence of Dublin's Lord Mayor. Cross over to Grafton Street, Dublin's fashionable shopping strand, and you'll stop at a typical Irish pub. This is a chance to order a cool pint of Ireland’s most famous and darkest stout beer (or another beverage of your choice) and meet some of the 'Dubs', as the locals are known. Take time to stroll through independently or perhaps browse the shops during free time. At the conclusion of your tour, meet up with your guide and return to Merrion Square and the waiting coach.
Minimum age to drink alcohol is 18 years. You will see the National Gallery of Ireland from the outside only.
