Hi everyone! Meetup is from 1130am at 'itsa bagel' (1, The Diamond, New Street, Malahide - put that in Google if you're not sure where it is).

We'll be there until 1245pm (lovely bagels, scones, teas/coffees etc in a gorgeous café) and we'll walk the 250metres (to Malahide train station to get the DART at 1:02pm back 1 stop to Portmarnock train station, just a 3 minute journey. Don’t forget your Leap card to avoid having to buy a ticket at the station. You can also meet us at Portmarnock train station instead at 1:05pm if you prefer.

Our walk begins at Portmarnock train station and we'll follow the coastal route to Malahide, taking in almost the full length of Portmarnock beach, the scenery is amazing…

The approximate route is at: http://goo.gl/maps/hQJm9

The actual route is slightly different as the Google car didn't go on Portmarnock beach! We’ll walk the beach. It's not quite 2hrs 15mins as it says on that Google Map - probably under 2hrs.

For this route there’s toilets in itsa bagel and we’ll stop briefly at the public toilets about 2/3s of the way along the route.

We'll finish the walk at Malahide Castle. There'll be time there for delicious food in the wonderful Avoca Cafe at the castle or to visit the castle itself on a guided tour, I'm going to the Avoca cafe! (allow yourself plenty of time if you do want to visit the castle, the ticket for the castle includes access to the Castle Private Gardens and the Botanic Gardens).

I’ll be getting the train back to the city centre from Malahide train station after Avoca / the castle. Feel free to join us going back to the train station also, it's a 15 minute walk.

Any questions or comments please feel free to post them below.

If you need to ring or text on the day I’m on 086 0711742.

Thanks!

Alan.
