Directions

On foot:


The river Liffey divides Dublin into the North and South sides. Our meeting point is on the North side, very close to the foot of the Ha'penny Bridge. Dublin is easily walkable and the Ha'penny Bridge is a well-known landmark, so you'll easily find it on a map, Google maps, or by asking someone on the street. Once at the bridge, on the north side, look for the Grand Social, 35 Liffey Street Lower. You will see our guides with light-blue T-shirts, namecards and our Generation Tours Free Tour sign right in front of the bar.
