Dublin - Docklands & the Grand Canal (Chapter)
This is the Docklands & the Grand Canal chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dublin guidebook.
Although much of the Docklands development that transformed the eastern end of the Liffey towards Dublin Port is given over to office and apartment blocks, there are parts that are worth exploring at ground level.
- visit Jeanie Johnston, a working replica of a 19th-century ‘coffin’ ship, as the barques transporting emigrants during the Famine were known
- contemplate the Famine while walking gently among Rowan Gillespie’s thought-provoking famine memorial bronze statues
- attend a gig at spectacular Bord Gáis Energy Theatre designed by Daniel Libeskind
- restaurants & bars
