Revolutionary Dublin 1912-1923

A Walking Guide

Step back in time with this accessible walking guide to the revolutionary history of Dublin. John Gibney and Donal Fallon have spent years leading historical walking tours through the city, and now you can join them at your own pace as they bring this crucial period in the development of modern Ireland to life.

Beginning with the Home Rule Crisis and finishing in the aftermath of the Civil War, en route it covers the 1913 Lockout, the impact of the First World War, the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence. These groundbreaking events are set against the backdrop of the city's multifaceted development. Each walk covers a different area, setting the scene with a rich overview of its social, cultural and architectural context during this era, then taking in well-known landmarks and hidden corners where key events unfolded, from Kilmainham Gaol in the west, through Liberty Hall and Jacob's biscuit factory in the inner city, to Croke Park in the north. Along the way, you'll meet the diverse cast who shaped Ireland's revolution, from lesser-known figures like Rosie Hackett, to iconic leaders like Patrick Pearse. Each route follows on from the last, so you can extend your explorations through the whole city.

Whether you're a first-time visitor or a born-and-bred Dubliner, follow in the footsteps of the men and women of the Irish revolution and see the city as they did.
