The Liberties

The Liberties – explore a vibrant quarter only the locals know.

Some of Dublin’s best-known sights and attractions are located in The Liberties.  The area is the vibrant urban hub where Old Dublin meets New Dublin; where fact meets folklore; where locals define the city and where the world comes to learn, to enjoy, to experience.

The tour will immerse you in an area of rich heritage, vibrant community and local charm. In many ways, the Liberties characterises what it means to be from Dublin. It’s a truly authentic, inner-city neighbourhood defined in equal measure by its present-day, dynamic economic and social activity and also by its rich and intriguing social, cultural and political past. The area plays host to thriving economic success, social decline, the amazing Guinness story, disadvantaged communities fighting back, digital industries, and a direct connection with many of the key historic events and cultural figures through the centuries that shaped Dublin and Ireland.
