2,316 Reviews

Dating back to AD 800, the illuminated manuscript known as the Book of Kells is renowned for its extraordinary illustrations and ornamentations. Its intricate drawings incorporating Celtic and Christian traditions are a testament to the incredible craftsmanship of the medieval Irish monks believed to have created it while on the remote island of Iona in Scotland. Despite Viking raids, theft, and fights between various Irish and English factions, 680 astonishingly detailed vellum (calf-skin) pages of the book remain intact.

Turtle Bunbury's Dublin: A Self-Guided Audio Tour from a Celebrated Author

Turtle Bunbury's Dublin: A Self-Guided Audio Tour from a Celebrated Author

With upwards of 1,200 years of action-packed history to draw upon, there’s not a pavement stone in Dublin that doesn’t have a tale to tell. On this self guided audio tour, I’ll escort you through a small chunk of the Irish capital, bringing you from St Stephen’s Green via Merrion Square to Trinity College Dublin. Along the way, I’ll fill you in on characters such as Bernardo O’Higgins, Maurice Fitzgerald, Wolfe Tone and Paddy Hitler. We’ll learn about Vikings who became Normans, Frenchmen who fought for Ireland, and Irishmen who fought for Mexico. At the time of publishing this tour, Trinity College was closed to the public until August 10th to prevent the spread of coronavirus. It might reopen sooner, or later, and it might close again after reopening. If it happens to be closed when you take this tour, I recommend retiring to one of the many fine pubs nearby, to listen to the rest of the tour in comfort.
