Continuing down Dawson Street pass by Dublin's smallest pub, the Dawson, and see the elegant Mansion House. See the Royal Irish Academy, a scientific and cultural institution since the 1700s, and St Ann's Church with its 18th century galleried interior and historic connections. Weave down narrow streets and arrive outside Davy Byrne's, a pub made famous by James Joyce in Ulysses. Enjoy a photo opportunity beside the celebrated Molly Malone statue before passing Trinity College and the classically proportioned Bank of Ireland and former 18th century House of Parliament.
Subject to no closures, visit the preserved House of Lords. Head through Temple Bar, Dublin's equivalent to Paris' Left Bank and cross the famous Ha'penny Bridge over the River Liffey to Dublin's main street and one of the widest boulevards in Europe. Look out for intriguing monuments including the magnificent O'Connell Monument commemorating Daniel O'Connell. Make your way inside the General Post Office, headquarters of the 1916 Rebellion and the de facto main shrine to Irish Independence, before concluding today's tour at the Spire, a 120m high symbol of the street's renewal.
