Book a Dublin hostel and take in a new walking tour
Those who would like to experience a historic visit to Ireland may want to do the Dublin on the Rocks walking tour.

The audio adventure will take in 16 stops around the city and after all that pacing about you can relax in a Dublin hostel.

Speaking to the Irish Times, journalist Mary Mulvihill - who is responsible for the tour - said it has been 500 million years in the making.

Visitors will see the 600 panes of glass embedded in Trinity College Dublin, fossils from the Jurassic time period and even volcanic ash.

Ms Mulvihll added: "This is a new venture to develop a range of audio tours."

Those who are encouraged by what they hear may find a hostel in Dublin as the perfect release once they have finished.

People will have the chance to experience an array of historic buildings in the city and explore the history of the stonework.

City walls at St Audoen's Church in High Street and down into St Stephen's Green are all locations included in the tour, as well as the slate used in the windows of the Dame Street coffee shop, which could be ideal to stop off at for a quick cuppa.

And those with a passion for culture might want to check out Culture Night 2010 on September 24th. The event features a host of shops in the city staying open late and it might be worthwhile to have a cheap hostel in Dublin booked for after the festivities.
