Paul our walk leader is a former journalist who worked in the Music Industry for many years. He also presented with RTE1 & 98FM and is an accountant . The Dublin Bay Coastal Trek on a Sunday Morning is great for those who want to stretch their legs and learn about Dublin without sitting in a bus all day.
Join "Irish Walking " at 10am every Sunday in July and August at the GPO in Dublin's O Connell St . Walk through some of the more interesting areas of Dublin off the normal tourist trail and stay fit in the process. You might even grow to like it.
We will walk through Dublin Docks across the Liffey at the 02 Arena , across the East Link Bridge and past the Aviva Stadium .
We will go through Ringsend, Sandymount, Booterstown, Blackrock, Monkstown, Dun Laoghaire, Dalkey, and finish in Killiney.
All of this is road, beach and park walking along the coast, moving at a reasonable pace but if you start to sweat we can slow down There are few distractions till we stop for a coffee in Blackrock, A Light Lunch in Dun Laoghaire and maybe a Guinnessin Dalkey. You will need a reasonable level of fitness and no stilettos.
After Dalkey's famous Vico Road we drop to our final trek on Killiney Beach , recently as we rounded the corner a naked man stepped out of the sea so if you are easily shocked stay at the pub in Dalkey.
You may bring lunch if you wish but we will stop in Dun Laoghaire at about 13.00 for approx 30 mins.........no longer.
We will return to Dublin by Train and this is included in the price. All times are approximate as everything depends on how often we stop etc.Don’t worry there are loads of toilets s on the way . Passports are not necessary just a sense of humour. This is not a race if you want a sweaty workout at speed forget it , stay in bed.
This Trek is not about speed , it is meant to be enjoyable and a good way to mak enew friends on your Irish Holiday. Solo Travellers are very welcome but all must be over 18 to attend..
After we finish you can join me reurning on the train to Dublin or take the ferry from Dun Laoghaire to Howth.
If its the final day of your holiday you may even take a direct bus from Killiney back to the Airport. We can arrange a direct transfer of your bags from your hotel to meet you at the airport.
