About this Event

Learn how the arrival of the railway changed people’s lives. See how much and how little the village has changed.

Our guided tour with Patricia Boyd follows the Dart line into Blackrock Park.

We see Deepwell one of the most expensive houses ever sold in Ireland. We discover the sites of Frescati House and Maretimo House, both now demolished.

We pass Blackrock Library, the former Town Hall and Technical school.

We follow Newton Road to Blackrock House and the old tram depot.

We return along the bypass looking across to the Daughters of Charity and take a close look at Gillespie’s sculpture.

We enter the village, pass the stone cross and go down towards Idrone Terrace. We look at Lord Cloncurry’s bridge and jetty and finally Blackrock Baths before returning to our starting point.
