Dublin Strolls: Exploring Dublin's Architectural Treasures

By Gregory and Audrey Bracken


Add to wish list

This bestselling guide to Dublin’s architecture is filled with easy-to-follow walks through the city, with clear maps, expert architectural insights and fascinating historical detail.

Dublin’s long history has had a visible impact on its architecture: waves of invaders and the attempts by Dubliners to shake them off have left their mark, with the 1916 Easter Rising, for example, having left whole parts of the city in ruins. It was not all strife, however: the Georgian era saw gracious streets and squares being laid out.

This book invites you to emulate Leopold Bloom in strolling through the city. Each walk follows on from the one before and gives clear architectural descriptions, accompanied by beautiful hand-drawn illustrations.

Thanks to Gregory and Audrey Bracken, you'll never look at Dublin in the same way again.
It’s about much more than architecture – it’s the story of Dublin.
Stands apart from similar-sized guide books to Dublin principally for its high level of architectural detail on the city’s buildings and its tasteful architectural sketches.
Enlightening and inspiring.
A vibrant treasure hunt.
Uncovers some fascinating – and forgotten – histories.
Quirky and interesting ... an engaging guide to scour rather than flick through.
Not only a guide to some slick architectural trails around the city, but also an absolute MINE of titbits about our fantastic city.
