Walk in the path of Irish suffragettes a hundred years ago!

This brilliant walking tour of Dublin brings you to all the most important places associated with Irishwomen's fight to vote, in an easy looped circuit that goes past lots of cafés where you can rest and refuel.

We have researched this complex history and condensed it into seven entertaining stops, bookended with nineteenth-century ragtime piano. For a century, the sacrifices and determination of these dedicated and brave women have been deliberately erased. Let's come together to shine a light on them in this year of the centenary of women voting in Ireland - let's walk in their footsteps, and remember.
