Dublin City Stroll

Discover the historical side of this modern European City following the trail of ‘Molly Malone’ as she wheeled her wheelbarrow through Dublin’s fair city!

After a transfer across the city to Marley Park, in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains, you begin your walk on the Wicklow Way.
