The story starts with an overview of Trinity College where the group’s guide will transport them back some 600 years ago to when it was an old Augustinian Priory and location of plague house in the city. Listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin!
They will hear an account of plague victims trying to soothe their wounds in the waters of the city’s drinking supplies and learn about the Mayors’ schemes to try and keep the disease under control and discover the fates of all those poor souls who found themselves infected with the disease. Many were ostracized, but some suffered an end much, much worse. Many believed that the plague was the end of days, but the history of Dublin and its horrors continued.
Groups join their guide as he takes them through the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin’s past.
