Trinity and The Docklands

Walking Tour of Dublin Port

Dublin Port Company

Dublin Port’s history dates back to 1707 and while the company has always looked forward, the port never lost sight of its substantial heritage. Much of the evolution of communities in the North and East Wall areas is inextricably linked either to the Port itself, or the numerous industries which developed around it. Railways, Shipbuilding, Car Assembly, Timber Importers, Coal, are some of the many businesses that flourished and evolved throughout the Port’s history. Much of the early housing stock in the vicinity was built to accommodate the workers. From those communities would come significant Artists, Musicians, Writers, and Poets. Explore Dublin Port’s rich Heritage with Hugh McGuinness, from East Wall History Group (4pm & 6pm tours) and Anthony Finnegan, tour guide and former Shore Engineer. (5pm & 7pm tours)
