Virtual Walking Tours of Medieval Dublin
The Friends of Medieval Dublin will once again be offering walking tours of Medieval Dublin, but we’re doing it a little differently this year.
Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, the Friends of Medieval Dublin have decided to do virtual tours of Medieval Dublin for Heritage Week 2020.
Starting the 15th of August, you can explore life in the city 1,000 years ago from the comfort of your couch (or chair, or bed, or backyard pool, or favorite floor cushion) through a series of videos.
For the first time, anyone, anywhere in the world, can join us as experts in their field explore this fascinating medieval city.
Find out where the heart of the city was located, where you can see remains of the medieval wall, and much, much more.
You can follow us on Twitter (@FMDublin) and Instagram (@friendsofmedievaldublin) all week long and beyond for updates and links to videos and teasers.
Check out our YouTube channel and come along with us as we show you Medieval Dublin.
We look forward to sharing this dynamic content with all of you and hope you keep safe and healthy this Heritage Week!
For a tour aimed at our younger learners, please see this exciting booklet provided by Dublin City Council and Creative Ireland 2020:

Well, you’re in luck!
This year, we are asking you to send us your burning questions about medieval Dublin over the next few weeks. Then during Heritage Week (15-23 August) we will be posting responses from some of the top experts in the field.
So log on, send us your questions via our contact page, Twitter (@FMDublin), Instagram (@friendsofmedievaldublin), Facebook (Friends of Medieval Dublin) or a carrier pigeon.
We look forward to hearing from you!
