New heritage trail planned for Dublin The Irish Minister for Tourism, Leo Varadkar, has announced plans for a Dublin heritage trail, in a move that is hoped to increase visitors to the Irish capital.

Named the ‘Dubline’ trail, around €4 million has been earmarked for the route, which will encompass the likes of Trinity College Dublin, Dublin Castle, Christ Church, the Liberties and St James’s Gate before finishing at Kilmainham, with visitors also getting directions to heritage and cultural landmarks nearby.

A range of unique features are also to be introduced, with smartphone apps, virtual tours and podcasts available for users of the route.

Commenting on the trail, Mr Varadkar said: ‘“A walk from Trinity College to Kilmainham takes you through centuries of Irish history, including our Viking, medieval, Norman and Anglo-Irish pasts. This new initiative will combine the ancient era with modern technology to immerse tourists in Dublin’s history.’

It could be a great addition to the Irish capital’s cultural landscape, which has become a winning feature of this fantastic European city. Why not check it out whilst enjoying some singles holidays to the city, the perfect base for a summer break?
