Event description

Description

Newmarket, the heart of the Liberties, is scheduled for huge physical change. Mill St is already transformed, while most of Sweeney Lane is a distant memory and Blackpitts and Fumbally Lane are both full of extraordinary, half-forgotten historical connections. It is high time we explored this remarkable, unique area area, examing its past, present and future and to see just why it's so fundamental to the story of Dublin as a whole. On this tour, we'll explore aristocratic townhouses, underground rivers, mill ponds and Dutch Billies, ancient, abandoned churches and modern enterprise, and discuss everything from industry, education and tragedy, to philanthropy, revolution and trade.

In its totality, you will discover an area on the cusp of massive, irreversible change, rich in history, and full of real surprises.

Please purchase your tickets in advance, using the button above.

Meet point is directly outside the Teeling's distillery in Newmarket. Please see the map at the very foot of this page. The map also expands if required.

Meet from 12.22pm please. Saturday 22nd July (2017) We will of course walk in all weathers. Please check forecast. Wear suitable clothes and footwear. Meet your guide Arran from 12.22pm please. Walk and talk starts 12.30pm sharp.

Please note: it's not necessary to print out your ticket. Save the trees! We will have a list of names on the day to tick off. You may of course also show us your ticket on the screen of your phone to speed things up if desired.

This will be a fascinating tour, full of maps, of ideas and surprises, all in the usual sociable, Dublin Decoded style. We look forward to welcoming you then.
