Dublin Discovery Trails

Download the free Dublin Discovery Trails app

Download the free official Dublin Discovery Trails app to discover a series of themed self-guided walking trails developed by Fáilte Ireland, the National Tourism Development Authority.

These trails are all connected to The Dubline, an orientation route through the city centre developed in partnership with Dublin City Council and one of the easiest ways to explore some of the city’s most visited sites and attractions.

The Dublin Discovery Trails app enables you to uncover the compelling stories of Dublin’s culture, heritage and history through a series of engaging audio guides enriched with commentary, personal accounts, images and GPS-enabled maps.

Each trail is simple to navigate, easy on the feet and has an exciting, revealing theme. Do just one, or do them all!

Choose from the following trails, each of which takes a minimum of two hours on foot:

  • Retrace the dramatic events of the 1916 Easter Rising with Rebellion, and hear how these six days changed the course of Irish history.

  • The Story of Dublin will guide you through streets broad and narrow and take you on a thrilling journey through Dublin’s 1000 year history.

  • Explore Kilmainham and surrounding parklands with Echoes of War, and discover moving stories of war and rebellion around every corner of this peaceful place.

  • Go back in time with Empire to the busy streets of Dublin when it was one of the most important cities in the British Empire.

It works offline – there is no need for a live data connection while using this app, as everything is stored on your phone after the initial download. This means you won’t be charged for expensive data roaming.

The Dublin Discovery Trails app is available for Android and iPhone.
