For convenience for me there’s no better escape then a quick trot along the banks of this surprisingly peaceful small river. For much of the way it runs parallel to a road, yet is mostly hidden. If lucky at all you’ll encounter a squirrel or...More

Christmas holiday rental which was filthy dirty. No proper cleaning had been done in advance of our arrival. Kitchen and living areas had years of dirt built up. Sticky presses and crumbs and dirt everywhere. Baby sick on the couch and dreadfully stained rugs. Please...More

Leisurely stroll on a weekday afternoon. Beginning at Firhouse Weir I travelled along the river to the new bridge. This is an easy stroll for all age groups.

Interesting walk from Tallaght along the Dodder river to The Weir - with new bridges recently opened to extend the walk from The park near the Old Mill all the way to Templeogue bridge.

A well known journalist did a fine piece for his paper recently, and "introduced" the Dublin public to this gem of a walk. Our walking group are taking it as a Saturday trek shortly and, perhaps, stopping off at some "watering holes" along the way....More
