Tour of Dublin Museums: Treasures of Ireland

This unique tour uses Ireland’s artistic and literary wealth to explain the historical moments, traditions, wars, movements, and eras that have sculpted Ireland through the centuries.

We’ll explore the highlights of the National Gallery, National Library and National Museum, with a break half-way through.

Consider those great cultural and artistic treasures that represent your country’s history. For the USA, it is paintings like ‘Washington Crossing the Delaware’ and ‘American Gothic’ by Grant Wood, original manuscripts of Edgar Allan Poe and Walt Whitman, and objects full of cultural symbolism like The Liberty Bell.

This tour will show you their Irish equivalents:
- Symbolic paintings representing the Norman Conquest of Ireland and the Irish Civil War;
- Insight into the life and works of W.B. Yeats - Ireland’s Greatest Poet;
- The Tara Brooch and the Ardagh Chalice – treasures that epitomise Ireland’s Golden Age (500-800AD).
