Meeting Point
In front of the Grand Social, 35 Liffey Street Lower, on the north side of the Ha'penny Bridge

On foot:

Our meeting point is just at the foot of the famous Ha’Penny bridge, at the corner of Bachelor’s walk and lower Liffey street, on the north side of the river Liffey which runs through Dublin City. The Ha'penny Bridge is a well-known landmark, an old white cast iron pedestrian bridge, so you'll easily find it when walking along the river, on a map, Google maps, or just ask anyone on the street to point you in the right direction.

You will see our guides with light-blue T-shirts, name-cards and blue umbrellas right in front of The Grand Social venue at 35 Liffey Street Lower.
