Curated experiences to explore the depth of history and heritage surrounding ferry ports on the Irish Sea: Dublin Port, Rosslare, Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock.

How it started

The first two booklets produced were a North Wall tour of the area, and a historic guide about the famous Monto. These booklets have been distributed for free by The Five Lamps Arts Festival and the videos are available on our website and YouTube channel.

Every year, local Walking Tours are included in the Festival Programme. Year after year these tours are oversubscribed and are considered one of the festival highlights. On the back of this widespread interest in the rich history and culture of the area, The Five Lamps Arts decided in 2018 to collaborate with artist John Ruddy and historian Hugo McGuiness to develop a series of Walking Tour Booklets and associated videos
Special demand for the booklets was generated when the project was featured on Nationwide. In 2019, two additional booklets were produced covering Bram Stoker in the north inner City and Sean McDermott Street. And more four further booklets of Dublin’s Deep-Sea Port Walking Tour.
