Walkabout - South Wall area

28-06-2022 6:30 pm - 10-08-2021 9:30 pm
Free
Walkabout  - South Wall area

The facilitator for this is Peter MacMenamin. Meet at the last carpark before the South wall at 6.30 pm. If you can't make that time come along anyway and catch up with the group.

Access: A: Full details, including a map, will be sent to each registrant in advance of the event.

What is there?

  • Seascapes, views of Dublin and surrounding areas from unusual angles.
  • Sunset over Dublin – if we are lucky. Time of sunset that day 21.56 (1 minute off longest day). Tide, full ebb at 17.42 and fully in at 0.20 so incoming tide all evening.
  • Boats will come and go alongside the S Wall and probably small sail boats – weather dependant.
  • There are old remains of buildings in that area that have open access, views of the chimneys and other constructions in the port area; some of the wall is broken underfoot on the south side of the wall (left as you head outwards so take care here).
  • At the carpark, beach areas and at the base of the wall, wild flowers in flower. Some bird life around – unpredictable.
  • Plan is to walk out the South walk to the red lighthouse, past swimming places, views across to N Bull Island and in towards Dublin.
  • We will schedule to finish at 9.30pm but depending on light may well stay longer for sunset or retreat earlier if bad weather.
  • NOTE, there is no shelter at all from weather. Come appropriately clad and check forecast on the day.
