    This walking guided tour, the ‘Epic Tour of the Viking Triangle’, includes entry to six national monuments ranging in date from 1190AD to 1783, it is a wonderful way for visitors to get an overview of Irish history both the historic and archaeological treasures and also experience the developments in architecture over a period of a thousand years as visitors transverse the Viking Triangle. We market the experience as ‘From the Vikings to the Victorians - A thousand years of History in a Thousand Paces’.

    The visit includes Reginald’s Tower first mentioned in 1088, Greyfriars Medieval Franciscan friary 1240, Choristers’ Hall 1274, the Mayor’s Wine Vault 1448, the Bishop’s Palace 1741 and if there is not a church service in progress then Christ Church Cathedral 1773 is also included. It’s an engaging tour and will entertain you with numerous photo opportunities along the way. This unique tour will have you experience an overview of Irish history in an hour!
