Event description

Description

As the above image from 1846 shows, Portobello was once a landscape of orchards and of 18th century pleasure gardens. Later on, towards the third and final quarters of the 19th century, it was developed as a mix of wealthy wide avenues of substantial Victorian red-bricks, mixed with smaller streets of humbler artisan housing. In the 150 years since then it has served as a haven for Jewish refugees, for Irish revolutionaries, for artists, sculptors, writers and much more. The notional birthplace of Leopold Bloom and the actual birthplace of George Bernard Shaw, Portobello is now one of the most thriving districts of Dublin. Come and explore it all with us, in the usual relaxed, sociable, but highly informative Dublin Decoded style.

Please book your ticket via the green button at the top of this page. See the handy map at the foot of the page for the location of our meet point at Portobello Harbour. For regular guests, please note the slightly later start time of 3pm (as opposed to our usual 2.30pm).

All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
