Dublin Strolls

Exploring Dublin's Architectural Treasures

This handy guide to Dublin’s architecture is filled with easy-to-follow walks through the city, with clear maps, expert architectural insights and fascinating historical detail.

Dublin’s long history has had a visible impact on its architecture: waves of invaders and the attempts by Dubliners to shake them off have left their mark, with the 1916 Easter Rising, for example, having left whole parts of the city in ruins. It was not all strife, however: the Georgian era saw gracious streets and squares being laid out.

This book invites you to emulate Leopold Bloom in strolling through the city. Each walk follows on from the one before and gives clear architectural descriptions, accompanied by beautiful hand-drawn illustrations.

Discover:

  • Hidden Dublin (including Isolde’s Tower, the remains of a 13th-century defence tower discovered in the 1990s along with the skulls of a number of young men whose heads had been displayed on spikes)
  • Religious buildings (from Christ Church to the burial place of St Valentine)
  • The buildings involved in the 1916 Rising (including the Royal College of Surgeons, City Hall, Liberty Hall, Kilmainham Gaol and, of course, the GPO).
