A Walking Tour of Dublin, Ireland
"Start. Today's all Irish. Our with tips for a walking tour of Dublin with nearly two million people in Greater Dublin. Ireland's capital is by far its biggest city and it thrives with Arts Entertainment Food and fun just taking a walk through Ireland's capital. You can see and experience so much of its charm. That can know where to look and if you know where to walk. It's even better. That's why we've invited to Great Irish guides. Joe Darcy and Karen O'hare to join us in our studios for a guided stroll through Dublin. Joe and Karen thanks for being with us. Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended. Kennedy College is an expert on the Ellen pipes which he performs with the company trio opened the door for three Joe. Darcy provides custom walking tours of Dublin and was recently on the board of historic Sweeney's pharmacy. Where James Joyce readings are given throughout the week when we go to Trinity College? Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe. Tickets into that the most important building built in Dobbin Jordan rebuilding eighteenth century was a new bike camera. Houses apartment one of the first purpose built house the parliament certainly in Europe. If not the world took about forty years to complete S- between seventeen forty. Seven hundred eighty and housed. Two Chambers House will come in the House of Lords very much along the the British can step into one of those houses to this day. It's open during banking errors free and and you really got sense of that little after the act of union and the first of January eighteen hundred one we became part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Bank of Ireland. Arden's forced commercial bank. They took over the building paid for the House of Commons. Hot To be put out of use never to be used as a place of assembly again but they said nothing about the House of Lords so the Bank of art and has maintained. And it's a beautiful room. It's mostly open Jordan banking hours occasionally there's functions and there you'll see a sign outside that it's either open or closed. I stumbled into it just this last year. I never knew about it and it was great

Oh and playwright who lived from eighteen fifty four to one thousand nine hundred and had a brilliant colorful difficult life of glory and persecution. He was a witty witty gifted and flamboyant aesthete's among his many accomplishments wild is particularly well known today for his epigrams and witty sayings. That's one reason I love his work. I love his epigrams aphorisms and paradoxes for instance. He said I can resist everything except temptation. He makes many thought provoking observations. Here are some of my favorites. Nothing can cure the soul but the senses justice nothing can cure the senses the soul a map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at and here's my favorite there are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others would pick them up in his acclaimed biography of Oscar Wild Richard Ellman recount as a student Oscar Wilde was very interested in furnishing his rooms at Oxford and he bought two large vases of blew China to hold lillies his alma notes. These vases may have inspired the remark which reverberated first round the university then round the country. I find minded harder and harder every day to live up to my blue. China almond remarks it remains one of Wilde's most memorable assertions and the earliest earliest to gain currency he adds. No one else could have said it. This remark caused a huge station at the time it made its way into Punch magazine and was denounced in a sermon. I'm fascinated by this remark. Because what exactly does it mean. What does Oscar Wilde mean when he said I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue China. I think he means that beautiful. Objects make us feel like we must rise to their level then in ourselves. We must be worthy of their beauty. Even Oscar Oscar Wilde felt that to be a difficult aim I certainly do. What do you think he meant by it? I find it harder and harder every day to live up to my blue China. I'm Gretchen Rubin and I hope this makes your week a little happier.

We do a lot of this is from testimony at his trial at least some of which was obtained by intimidation by the balls. Like they like threatened these young men to giving a deposition. And then I did some of them. I think would is like Yeshua that might a question. Why is it that you can have guy sex with Oscar Wilde and then pull that out his blackmail material gay sex is a two person activity. Why is that not trouble for the boy as well? I mean, I think because the argument is like they will lake exploited into. Yeah. Now along range sex. Yeah. It's less saying that Alfred Taylor. The man Kinda like who. Ooh. these boys also caught over this. And the second of his three trials is a joint trial without for Taylor. Is that thing as well at people like, oh, you have to judge them by the morality of that time off time on the morality of that time was like he should go to prison. Morality. Yeah. Right.

That's less of a direct cool may be like one interrupt or YouTube videos, like type of my benefits by me like he was aware of socialism because of the political scene of the day. Yes. All this electron was like my thoughts. Oscar is sometimes quiet intensely emotionally vested in social Justice. But this interest is generally quite sporadic it hold his interest. Sometimes all the time. He made the comment world more or less socialist nowadays. I think we're on the bull in a socialist. I am something of an anarchist. Which is just like, okay. They're the words that people will still say. Like, I would believe someone saying that to me now. He writes, this about socialism in which she argues that basically if society was to come socialist wouldn't lead to a very drab conformist societies. Sometimes people argued socialism to and still do you now with added historical?

What his alternate Amy's in writing this essay, which is writing about how a society that best suited the autistic shoots that he felt people should be focusing on could be created school would call in history. He wrote of anarchism about how other writers who wrote on some things at the same time would write about all as a means to the end of social and moral regeneration. That's wild odd is the supreme end containing within itself. Enlightenment and regeneration which all else in society must be subordinated George Bernard Shaw was asked what he thought of Oscar Wilde's essay. And he said, it was very witty and entertaining. But nothing whatever to do socialism. I mean, what you mean that it's wild anti on dividing, potentially. There's a lot of kind of back and forth about the extent to which wild is a serious political, which has definitely wedding to you. But.

With ongoing rumors about his masculinity and his sexuality or foles. This isn't the kind of complete picture of like every potentially romantic and we'll sexual relationship. You have a house with a woman. It's only the major ones like kind of his brief relationship with Lawrence bokram consents.

Like that doesn't evidence a lot of interest insects and given the intensity of his relationships with men and how kind of prevalent and oak consuming become into the tension in his life guard and forward I find it difficult to view him as bisexual as opposed to gay the way that people should be.

For what it's worth Neil. Mckenna understands Oscar Wilde's sexual experience quite differently up to this point hands. It's good to have had numerous sexual encounters up until this point with various men. He's evidence false squalls. Previous sexually hound has kind of just like his this, man.

But I-, nor if this website is even current so like, that's difficult. So that's the first one. Yeah. And then most biographies follow.

He's mother is this amazing dramatic theatrical character woman, she was born Jane LG, and she became known by the name Speranza, which is telling in for her and she wrote pamphlets and poetry in favor of Irish from billions signing them with that. And she is just generally known for being berry like dramatic in public. Can wearing really saying costumes about and stuff like that. Which has a thing that I liked about her that has no baron. This episode is that she was fluent in German, French and Italian and she pretended to be fluent in more through liberal use of the dictionary. And she just published things that translated from other languages by essentially looking every word up in addiction writing of whole around that I guess, okay? That sounds like people try to use Google translate to get tattoos. He's father. William Wilde was an iron year surge plus exciting, which has a list implications. Schools life of you. He does know surgeries. Let's say, but it, you know, his very interesting he were foundational Texans fealty to the hospital.
