Mountjoy Square Walking Tour
Mountjoy Square is our city’s only true Georgian Square, a truly fascinating location with strong links to many famous Dubliners and striking buildings that, against all odds, survived the wrecking ball.
Together with historian John Seery, we’re launching a new guided walking tour of the 560 metres route. John will explore some notable people and events associated with houses on Cearnóg Mhuinseo as it’s known in Irish, including Arthur Guinness, WB Yeats, and even U2!
You, too, can learn all about top-secret assignations to plan the Easter Rising, early covert meetings of the Dáil, and the Oscar-winning movie filmed here.
The Square itself has over 20 particular points of interest related to notable residents:
Secret sittings of Dail Eireann and the Cabinet
Several MPs, Aristocrats
Setting of the movies ‘Once’, ‘Nan’
And much more!
Tá an stair á rugadh, arís. Ná caill é!
MEETING POINT: 6 Denmark Street Great (outside Belvedere College)
