Walking Dublin is an exploration, in 24 diverse walks, of Ireland's unique capital and its surrounds. The popular areas of Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Trinity College and the Halfpenny Bridge are all included, but the walks cover much more than the city's justifiably famous areas. Dublin's history is brought to light, from the Stone Age to Georgian times and beyond. A walk is devoted to famous Dubliners, and the Ulysses Walk treads in the footsteps of the hero of James Joyce's legendary novel. The city's beautiful parks and waterways are also taken in, as is the incredible coast around Dalkey, Howth and Portmarnock. With easy-to-follow route maps highlighting museums and other places of interest, and a wealth of vital tourist information, Walking Dublin is the essential companion for all who wish to become acquainted with this wonderful city.
