    Ballad Walking Tours

    Join Dublin balladeer and entertainer Seán Fitzgerald for a musical walking tour of Dublin City.

    What happens if I go on the tour?

    You’ll hear songs from Dublin and stories of Dublin,

    The songs of the blind poet Zozimus, Bard of the Liberties, from the early 19th century

    As well as 21st Century Irish songs.

    You’ll hear stories from the 18th century Dublin dens of iniquity known as ‘Hell’.

    You will or will not sing along to many Irish songs, depending on how you feel.

    And you’ll most probably laugh a lot!

    You’ll see sights such as Smock Alley Theatre (1662), Christ Church Cathedral (1028),

    Dublin Castle (1204), as well as the site of the original Viking Dublin (9th century). And many other places besides!
