The tour will feature some of the Hospital's collection of paintings, Swifts Writing Bureau and culminate in the showing of a reconstructed patient's cell from the 1750s.  Led by theatre maker Alice Coghlan of Wonderland Productions, who has adapted Swift for the stage,  this tour will explore the Dublin of the hospital's famous founder and his legacy.
