Deadly Dublin is a character driven tour where we find the most unusual, brilliant and nefarious Dubliners among the most famous Georgian or 1700’s Square in Dublin.
This tour begins at the Fusiliers Arch, or main entrance to St Stephen’s Green on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6.30 pm
While we walk through beautiful nature, we discover some horrors of the past such as a public hanging ground and ladies oppressing servants for stealing their tea. We hear about concentration camps in the South African Boer War, wonderful speeches made in courtroom docks to a judge who was sleeping off a boozy lunch. We give a fresh look to old events and wonder are we luckier now or was that glorious past a better country.
What have lasers to do with St Stephen’s Green, let’s find out? We shall visit Lord Ardilaun and wonder how a private park could have been opened by a publicly traded alcohol. From there we will understand why some cost saving design features in buildings can be lifesaving!
You will be able to amuse and confuse your friends after this tour with what they think they know, such as why Central Park in New York, looks similar to St Stephen’s Green. We will also talk about the what if; the possible courses history could have taken. Would Dublin have been different if history had turned another way at key moments of the past.

Really enjoyed our walking tour of Dublin. An interesting and informative walk and talk around the historical city centre of Dublin. Engaging and enjoyable for children.
Ruth our guide was extremely knowledgeable in the history of Dublin. It's great to learn in a fun entertaining way and this tour delivered on that. So many things about the medieval period I learned that I will never forget because of the amusing way the information was delivered. A must do this tour.
Myself and my children joined Ruth on her Medival tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My children surprised me with their interest in Medival Dublin and Ruth always had a funny and interesting story to share. We learnt lots about Medival Dublin. Ruth kept both adults and children captivated during the tour. I look forward to joining Ruth on other walking tours in Dublin.
This was a lovely coffee tour and we had a really enjoyable experience
WalkDublin will have you as fit as a fiddle as you are guided through Dublins's narrow streets and bridges. The wealth of historical knowledge Ruth shares is incredible and the entertainment value alone is worth taking a tour. Time flies when you are having fun. Thanks a mil Ruth for a fun Sunday afternoon.
