The 1916 Dublin Bus Tour

An extraordinary journey through time.

Easter 1916, Dublin is in flames and revolution is spilling onto the streets.

Navigating the city across barricades and time, propel yourself into the historical rebellion that would shape a nation.

Reconstructing the routes and stories of lesser known rebels, join our actors on board our specially designed bus to animate the action of the Rising. Through the eye-witness testimonies of those involved, we invite you to traverse the significant events of the week, immersing yourself in an adrenaline fuelled experience.
