Lets Walk & Talk Docklands
This tour is a special opportunity to explore New Old Dublin, so to speak. Yes, it is a very modern part of the city but it is built around some 18th and 19th century engineering feats with some 21st century wonders as well.
Join Pat Liddy at Connolly Luas stop on Tuesday 19th June at 11am and get to know this intriguing and alternative side of the city. From early engineering projects to the modern skyline, this quarter is now home to world-famous financial and tech giants such as Google and Facebook. At Grand Canal Docks, once the largest shipping dock complex in Europe, you will see a series of interesting sites including house barges, a former U2 studio, the spectacular Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, and of course the River Liffey. Then, you will discover the weird yet wonderful Diving Bell, the traditional Ferryman pub, the striking Samuel Beckett Bridge, the Jeanie Johnston famine sailing-ship, the Custom House, and the evocative Famine Memorial. You can visit EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum in the wonderful early 19th century CHQ Building at your own leisure. Don’t miss all the surprises and highlights of this newest walk.
