February Walk & Talk

Location: Dun Laoghaire, Dublin.

Meeting Point: 12 pm, February 24th, outside the main entrance to Dun Laoghaire DART station.

Length of Walk: A leisurely 2 hours.

What is the Walk and Talk? 

This will be a social gathering and will provide an opportunity for those who stammer, their family and friends, or those with an interest in stammering to walk and talk as they make their way around Dun Laoghaire and Glasthule. We will begin in Dun Laoghaire harbour and walk along the East pier which offers great views of Dublin Bay, then make our way along Scotsman’s Bay and on to the famous Forty Foot bathing area; taking a dip is optional! We will then visit the James Joyce museum which is housed in a Martello tower. Afterwards, we will pick up the historic Metals route, which was used to bring stone from Dalkey Quarry to Dun Laoghaire to construct the harbour, and make our way back into Dun Laoghaire. We will visit a local café after the walk for refreshments. The walk is open to all ages, although children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.
