Ireland’s Minister for Tourism announces plans for Dublin heritage trailPlans for a €4 million Dublin heritage trail have been devised by Ireland’s Minister for Tourism Leo Varadkar, in a move to further improve the city’s tourism experience for visitors.

Labelled the ‘Dubline trail’, it is expected to be complete within a year and will encompass famous landmarks such as the Trinity College Dublin, Dublin Castle, Christ Church, the Libertines and St James’s Gate before finishing at Kilmainham.

Visitors along the route will also have access to a range of smartphone apps, virtual tours and podcasts, whilst the introduction of wifi zones is also being considered to enhance the visitor experience.

As part of the plans, streets and buildings are to be cleaned up along the route, whilst a tourist centre is to be constructed on the plaza beside City Hall, which should be complete within a year.

Mr Varadkar said: ‘This new initiative will combine the ancient era with modern technology to immerse tourists in Dublin’s history.’

It could be an exciting addition to the touristic landscape in the Irish capital, which is already an extremely popular destination amongst tourists. Why not check it out whilst enjoying a stay in one of the idyllic Dublin hotels?
