The Richmond Barracks walking tour is taking place every Saturday this month, writes Amy Rohu.
The walk from Richmond Barracks to Kilmainham is steeped in Dublin’s rich history. Starting in Richmond Barracks which was built in 1810, visitors will learn about its history as one of Ireland’s largest army barracks.
Known today as the place where the leaders of the 1916 Rising were held and court martialled before their execution in nearby Kilmainham Gaol. As you walk in the footsteps of these men, you will discover the many hidden histories and local heroes who also shaped the face of Irish history and Irish culture.
Led by professional tour guides, visitors will learn about poets, plaques and patriots and uncover the many stories of this remarkable place.
Each tour starts at 12pm on each Saturday throughout January and lasts approximately one hour and 15 minutes. The tour begins at Richmond Barracks and ends at Inchicore Road, opposite Kilmainham Gaol.
