Talking Statues: A New Way to See Old Dublin

Updated: Mar 15

As my daughter completed her studies at Trinity College – Dublin, I returned to explore new tours created by Failte Ireland, the country’s major tourism authority. We’d learned that the rivalry between posh Dublin 2 and traditionally working-class Dublin 1 runs deep, much like other North-South conflicts, but the tour of famous statues in town, supplemented by QR codes that can be scanned to hear the “famous” speak ensures enjoyment on both sides of the River Liffey.
