North Wall Campshires Walking Tour

North Wall Campshires Walking Tour

Join the celebration of Heritage Week with this walking tour around the North Wall Campshires area in Dublin 1

The North Wall is an area which stretches from the Custom House in the city centre to Dublin Port. It includes areas such as George’s Dock, Spencer Dock, the Royal Canal, Mayor Street, Guild Street, and Sheriff Street. It was once one of the bustling communities of Dublin’s old docklands where ships would arrive and unload goods; it is now an area of huge contrast, as modern developments grow amidst the remnants of the old port and dockland communities.

The area gets its name from the wall that was constructed along the river Liffey just over 300 years ago to extend the docklands. This allowed former swampland between the river and the North Strand to be reclaimed and divided up into lots in 1717 which could be infilled by the new owners and creating the long standing community of the North Wall.

Prepare yourself to be amazed by the rich history and culture of this part of Dublin Inner City!
