The app will showcase material from the Guinness archives at select locations along the walking tour. Using material specially selected by the Guinness archivist, illustrations and photographs were animated to showcase the rich historical connection between The Liberties and Guinness. Experience the app for yourself by booking a space on the “Guinness in The Liberties Tour” for a journey through these historic streets where you’ll see the Liberties like never before. The tour runs from Friday, March 15th to Monday, March 18th and can be booked via the St. Patrick’s Festival website - https://www.stpatricksfestival.ie/events
