After the success of the first Viking Dublin walking tour I am organising another tour on Sunday, June 26th. The tour will journey through the remains of medieval Dublin covering the cities origins from its days as an early medieval Gaelic settlement through its violent transformation into a bustling Viking slave port and trading emporium.
The tour will take in many of the sites covered in the podcasts so far, taking about 2hrs in total.
The tour is free of charge but donations are greatly appreciated.
If you would like to come on the tour please email me at history@Irishhistorypodcast.ie.
Follow the show on twitter or facebook.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been super busy, but I am hoping to get back to history in the next week. The tour of Viking Dublin which took place on Sunday 10th April went really well. Thanks to everyone who came along. If you are interested in coming on a tour of Viking Dublin but couldn’t attend the last one please let me know and if there’s sufficient interest I will do another tour. This is the post from the previous tour.
In the mean time I am looking for your suggestions for online resources to include in an archive of internet sites about Irish history and Archaeology.
The idea is to create an archive in one place that contains links to free reliable online sources. The only rules for inclusion is that the sources must be free, reliable and relate to Irish history or Archaeology (in the broadest sense of the word). Sources can include online books, blogs, youtube clips, websites, audio – the medium doesnt matter as long as its free and reliable. So please help send in your suggestions by commenting below or history@ Irishhistorypodcast.ie
