Reliving the Viking past in Dublin

Dublin's Viking past is everywhere in the city, from the Viking exhibition Dublinia to excavations at Dublin City Council headquarters. Join Catherine Le Nevez of Lonely Planet for a look at the city's Norse heritage.

"If you are accosted by a boatload of horned-helmeted Vikings when strolling Dublin's streets, do not be alarmed. Outfitted in plastic helmets and roaring fiercely, Viking Splash Tour participants are encouraged to embrace the Irish capital's Viking heritage as the amphibious contraption travels the city's roads and waterways."

In the article, Le Nevez highlights many areas of Dublin where Viking buildings once stood, or where the Norse heritage is being celebrated.
