Walking in Dublin

Group of people walking through a forest.
From hilltop hikes to seaside strolls.
There’s always a good reason to go for a walk in Dublin.

To explore long piers and rocky shorelines, leafy canal banks and fragrant forests, tranquil harbours and historic neighbourhoods. From solo walks to guided excursions, Dublin is yours to discover.

The journey is just as important as the destination as it provides a chance to soak up the city with time on your side. Linger and sip coffee en route. Pack a picnic and just start walking. Set your sights on the little red lighthouse in Dublin Bay and set off on your South Wall stroll. Book a guided walking tour, themed around history or food or pubs or U2.

Whatever your interest, there's a walk to match it. You can walk with purpose, following a specific itinerary. Or you can do what many a Dubliner considers one of the best ways to enjoy their city and engage in the aimless wander: it has no specific goal but always provides something noteworthy along the way.
