Georgian Dublin Decoded tour

Drama, books, publishing and music, in the time of Jonathan Swift.

A walk with Arran Henderson of Dublin Decoded tours.

In this tour we’ll explore the courts and alleys of Early Modern Dublin (1600-1730) and see how books were pirated and published, how music sprung debtors from prison, how duels were fought, literary vendettas pursued, how theatres were built and destroyed, and literary and political careers were built and destroyed the very same!  The first play professionally performed in Ireland, the first theatre in Dublin (now long vanished) and much, much more.  See Dublin a different way,  with Arran Henderson of Dublin Decoded tours.

Tickets €17 and available soon!
