Experience some of our nation’s favourite pastimes and discover why Croke Park remains the soul of our sporting heritage. Outside of Ireland, our most successful achievements are firmly linked with our proud rugby and golfing traditions, with every child dreaming of one day wearing the green jersey that defines us. Beyond team sports, our history of combat goes much further back than ‘The Fighting Irish’ of the 69th regiment. In particular, boxing is famed in Ireland, based on a proud tradition of producing more world-class Olympic champions per capita than any other country, along with Cuba, including the first female Olympic boxing gold medallist, Katie Taylor. In the professional ranks, past champions in Dublin alone include Bernard Dunne and Steve Collins, the latter becoming the first Irish boxer to have held world titles in two weight classes. Be prepared to be kept on your toes as you walk and learn about past and current sporting icons, come to appreciate the hard-work, dedication and skill required to become a champion as you try to replicate the professionals and relive some of our most iconic sporting moments. MEETING POINT is right outside the Olympia Theatre. Look out for the guide with an orange Stroll backpack!
Hi! My name is Jason and I'm a Stroller here in Dublin's fair city. Between studying at our world famous Trinity College and being heavily involved in our thriving startup scene in Dublin, I have a unique perspective on both life in the city and how Dublin is establishing itself as a centre for tech, innovation, and the best place in the world to do business. And I'm delighted to share that perspective with you on our Stroll, with lots of fun along the way!
The reason why I've given 4 stars is because Jason was fantastic, he had great knowledge of the fighters in Dublin. However, I would give str
We did the Fighting Irish Walking Tour and overall I would recommend it. Our tour guide Jason was really knowledgable about the subject and gave a lot of insight into the history of fighting in Ireland as well as Conor McGregor without overwhelming the tour about McGregor. The one suggestion I would have for Jason and Stroll would be to not talk so fast during the tour. Several times we couldn't really understand what was being said and missed some information due to this. Otherwise this was a really great tour and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Loved when Jason showed us fighting gloves and sizes...great tour and stories!
What an incredible story. Not just mcgregor's but the whole fighting irish past is just incredible.
The walking tour was outstanding. Jason was informative and a lot of fun!
The tour run by Jason was fun and full of surprises. The history of the Fighting Irish in Dublin is fascinating and is much larger than Conor McGregor's story. It was so interesting, even for those of us who don't watch combat sports!
I had an amazing time and had a great experience.
We really enjoyed the tour, Saoirse is the best!
I learned a lot of interesting facts during the tour
