North Wall Walking Tours
Welcome to Dublin’s north inner city…
The North Wall Walking Tours includes areas such as George’s Dock, Spencer Dock, Mayor Street and Sherriff Street. It was once one of the bustling communities of Dublin’s old docklands, where ships would come in with their goods; it is now an area of huge contrast, as the modern developments grow amidst the remnants of the old port and dockland communities.
The area gets its name, The North Wall, from the wall that was constructed along the Liffey just over 300 years ago to extend the docklands. This allowed former mud land between the Liffey and the North Strand to be reclaimed and divided up into lots in 1717 to begin the long-standing community of North Wall.
This walking tour will bring you through the history of the dockland area, its hidden relics, and the modern future being developed in the area today. As it is an area of new developments, some new buildings on the map, may not be complete just yet! Manny Man presents to you the North Wall!
