Discover Dublin with your Touring Chauffuer
Dublin & the East of Ireland, Ireland
Travel from Viking raids to the Anglo-Norman invasion and on to the Age of Elegance and the conflict of the Easter Rising as you explore Dublin with your private touring-chauffeur.
The vibrant, buzzing city of Dublin sits on Ireland’s east coast, a must-see for any visitor to the ‘Emerald Isle’ and as you travel around the city with your chauffeur they will bring the city, its stories and history to life in full-color. After invading in 795AD, the city was ruled for almost 300-years with a vice-like grip by the Vikings, while the medieval city grew after the Anglo-Norman invasion in the 12-14th centuries. It was this invasion that saw Ireland begin 700-hundred years of English, and later British, interest in the country.
Wandering past elegant terraces and fanlight doorways brings you to the ‘Age of Elegance, a time of affluence which saw graceful additions in the architecture of the city. 1916 brought another period of upheaval and conflict with the Easter Rising, which saw the General Post Office become the birthplace of the Irish Nation. Tracing the bullet holes in the pillars will take you back to a time of agitation that seems far removed from the genteel elegance of today’s Dublin.
