North Wall Quay & Grand Canal Walk
this is an excellent walk and only takes 35 mins if you don’t stop anywhere along the way. it’s a great route to explore parts of hidden dublin and to come across some great local areas that show the old traditional dublin sitting alongside the new shiny dublin, where they co-exist very comfortably. it’s also the perfect walk if you’re looking for something different to do while on holiday with teenagers. get your shoes on and get exploring!
