Quiet walk

Leisurely stroll on a weekday afternoon. Beginning at Firhouse Weir I travelled along the river to the new bridge. This is an easy stroll for all age groups.

Our walking group are taking it as a Saturday trek shortly and, perhaps, stopping off at some "watering holes" along the way. The finest structure on the route on route is the old entrance to Rathfarnham Castle,... More
