About this Event

... then join Mairéad Barry for a bilingual tour in French and English, of the heart of Georgian Dublin.

During this tour with Mairéad, you will get a flavour of the 18th era and what mysteries lie behind those colourful Georgian doors. En route, you will...

  • Visualize the life of the first owners of Leinster House with their 19 children.
  • Find out what happened to the statue of Queen Victoria and what replaced it.
  • Visit one of the few statues of a woman, Constance Wilde, included in the Oscar Wilde Memorial Sculpture.
  • Be enchanted by the wonderful paintings in the National Gallery including the historical oil-on-canvas painting of The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife.
  • Make a rendez-vous to visit the former home of the Duke of Wellington, now the Merrion Hôtel, with the pièce de résistance...
  • Afternoon tea, (extra) inspired by the work of J.B. Yeats, Louis Le Brocauy and others.

This tour will include a brief history of the Department of the Taoiseach, Leinster House, the National Gallery, the Natural History Museum with a visit to the gardens and the Oscar Wilde Memorial Sculpture.
