What we're about

Hi everyone,
The idea is to walk casually on the Clontarf promenade and while having a leisurely walk to have a discussion about the topic of the day and exchange opinions between one and another.

This is not only a great healthy activity -
but also great way to socialize and get to know people from all sorts of life.

This activity should open for all ages, genders and nationalities - so integration at its best.
Later on if this goes well - we could have social events such as pub quiz, drinking nights etc...

Walk: Killiney hill to Dalkey to Dun Laoghaire for lunch

Needs a location

Hi everyone 👋
Like to join us for a fabulous coastal walk from Killiney to Dun Laoighaire via Dalkey.
We will meet at Killiney dart station at 11am.
And finish in Dun Laoghaire at around 1pm for coffee and A nice lunch.

We will walk up Vico road to Killiney hill park and admire the amazing sea views and the beautiful and expensive houses along the way.
In the park we will see the Obelisk at the summit- built to provide work during the terrible winter of 1741.

From the summit, you’ll see the reason for all those grand Italianate names – you’re looking out over Dublin’s answer to the Bay of Naples – as well as the Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Wicklow Mountains and Dalkey Island, with its stony Martello Tower.

Press downwards over the hill, and we pass the quarry from where the granite was extracted to build Dun Laoghaire’s mighty piers. Nowadays, its sheer sides make it the abseiling and rock-climbing hotspot for adventure-sports.

We will then leave the park via the Cats Ladder steps back onto Vico road
Heading towards Dalkey village. Again we will have amazing sea views.
We will pass by Dalkey Island 🏝, Bullock harbour, Martello towers, the Forty Foot swim spot 🏊‍♀️, Sandycove harbour on our way to Dun Laoghaire where we can have a nice lunch or coffee & cake 🍰

Walk Length: 7km on paths

Difficulty: a little uphill at start but easy

What to bring: some snacks and drinks, umbrella & light raincoat if rain expected.

What to wear: walking shoes or sneakers will be fine.

Please remember that everyone who joins the walk does so entirely at their own risk. The organizers of the walk will show you the route of the walk but cannot be held responsible in any way for any injury or loss which anyone may experience while on the walk or as a result of being on the walk.
