Full description
On the other side of the world famous Ha'Penny Bridge, you'll wander through the infamous Moore Street Terraces, one of the key sites of the violent rebellion, as well as visiting incredible feats of stunning architecture, such as Dublin's renowned Custom House. From neoclassical buildings to famine and misfortune, this side of the city has seen it all.

You'll visit the Great Irish Famine Memorial, remembering the one million people who died during the famine, as well as the Jeanie Johnson Tall Ship, commemorating those who escaped death by fleeing the Emerald Isle, beginning the exodus which gave 80 million people across the globe claim to Irish heritage. This tragic time, as well as generations of oppression, eventually culminated in the march towards liberation, which is remembered and discussed 100 years on.
