Description

Henrietta Street to Grangegorman Walking tour, with Arran Henderson of Dubin Decoded.

Ticket sales for this event are exclusively for the Rathmichael Historical Society (RHS) up to 23rd April. Exclusive access and early bird price both end on 23/04/18.

When RHS members pay online, enter your code provided when prompted to do so. Tickets on the day €15, notes only + subject to availabilty only.

Meet point: outside 14 Henrietta Street (exterior)

Meet/start time 11.30 AM. Saturday 23rd June 2018, walk time 95 mins approx.

Walk ends 1pm/ 1.15 approx. ending in Grangegorman area.

We meet outside 14 Henrietta Street to begin our tour. (See map at foot of page) We'll view and discuss the history and architectural history of Henrietta Street and the King's Inns, before passing through to Broadstone to consider the architecture of the old station and adjoining area, and discuss its remarkable, not always fully understood, transport history and archaeology.

Then, in the final section we travel to the Grangegorman district. Grangegorman is among the least-known districts of Dublin, almost a terra incognito, with its grim, high, stone walls and network of former prisons, historic hospitals, asylums and workhouses. Among many buildings we'll view and consider are Francis Johnston's huge Asylum and his vast Women's Penitentiary.

We'll also glance to the future - Grangegorman is a quarter of Dublin now undergoing rapid, irreversible change, with the new LUAS extension, and the former St Brendan's asylum re-purposed as the newly consolidated DIT, Ireland's newest university campus.

Taken as a whole, the tour provides insights into social, legal and penal history, with notes on Victorian and Georgian architecture, history, transport, engineering, urban archeology, as well as reflections on changing 18th and 19th century attitudes to welfare, poverty, and crime.

Please purchase your tickets below. Up to the 23rd of April tickets have been set aside and reserved for password holders only and are intended for Rathmichael Historical Society members and their guests only.

A special price of €11.25 plus booking fee (€12.75 total) is available exclusively to the members of the Rathmichael Historical Society who book prior to April 23rd. After that date the price will be €15, exact notes only + subject to availability.
