Dublin walking tours

Last year, I highlighted Architecture Ireland's nascent initiative of architect-led walking tours but there is already an established regular set of walking tours in Dublin.  Run by Dublin City Council, and mostly led by historian and artist, Pat Liddy, Let's Walk & Talk, runs regular weekly tours on a variety of themes and subjects.  Highlights also coming up in the next few months are:

6th March: Women & their contribution to the health of Dublin Past;
meeting at Fusilier's Arch, Stephen's Green at noon.

2nd April: Rathmines: a suburb apart;
meeting at Swan Leisure centre at 12.30

7th April: The 5 Lamps area: hub for transport and architecture since the 18th century;
meeting at the Five Lamps at 19.00

13th April: Handel's Dublin, meeting 11.00 at Wolfe Tone Park

28th April: Ghost Light (chosen for this year's One City One Book) - Edwardian Dublin
meeting at The Abbey at 19.00
