Killiney Bay glacial sediments and beach walk– DART Tour

Location: Dublin

Details: The location for this trip is an historically important, sedimentologically interesting and relatively accessible coastal exposure of glacial sediments along the coastline of Killiney Bay. The focus of interest comprises the part of the famous 5.5 km long coastal cliff section sediment sequence north of Corbawn Lane. This also forms a convenient reference point as a prominent marker location on several previously published descriptions and contrasting interpretations of the site. The full section extends between Killiney Head in the north and Bray, Co. Wicklow to the south and is up to 15m high to the south of Corbawn Lane. It is possible to traverse the full section in a single visit (for the determined and of good ankles), but this field visit will of necessity be confined to a smaller section.

Meeting Point:Meet at the entrance to Drumcondra Train / DART station at 11am. You will take the DART to Shankill Station to meet your tour leader for approx. 12.30pm. If late, please make you way to the beach via Corbawn Lane (east of train station, Corbawn Lane is the road running past the trained station) to join the group. You will return to Drumcondra Station for c. 6pm.

To Note: This trip will visit a rocky beach environment which will be very uneven underfoot, so secure footwear is advised, boots if possible. There are no restrooms at or near the beach. The nearest facilities are at the western end of Corbawn Lane, towards Shankill, 15-20 mins walk away. The beach is exposed to the elements with little shelter available other than a return to the train station pick up point. The beach may be very hot, so a personal water supply and sun shading is essential, or subject to wet and windy inclement weather despite the summer season, so please dress appropriate to the weather forecast on the excursion day, available at www.met.ie.

Duration: 3-4 hours (but delegates may choose to self-guide the long independent beach walk afterwards if desired!)

Price: €20 per person (packed lunch will be provided)

Coastal Uplands: Heritage and Tourism– Bus Tour

Location: Wicklow / Wexford

Details : The Coastal Uplands: Heritage and Tourism (CUPHAT) project focused on bringing a regenerative approach to heritage tourism development in four coastal upland communities bordering the Irish Sea – two in Wales and two in Ireland. All four areas are predominantly rural with shared experiences of outward migration and rural depopulation. Through a community centred approach we worked in collaboration with local people to select and highlight aspects of the local natural and cultural heritage that could be used to support regenerative tourism development in these areas. This trip will visit the two Irish areas (the southern Wicklow Mountains and the Blackstairs Mountains) and will stop at a number of key sites that were selected as case studies for the project’s work. Throughout the trip we will consider the challenges of a regenerative tourism approach, highlight key considerations in community engagement and consider future work required to ensure a lasting benefit to this work.

Meeting Point: Depart DCU at 9.15am and travel south through Wicklow and into the Blackstairs Mountains visiting Avoca, Tomnafinnogue, Shillelagh and Killanne. We will return to DCU by c. 7.30pm.

To Note: Although travel is by coach to our stops, there will be walking around each of the stops. Some of this will be on maintained, fairly flat paths but other parts may be on hilly or rough ground. Please dress appropriately for all weather types (it is Ireland) and bring at a minimum a waterproof jacket. You will need a bag to carry your packed lunch, please add water and an extra warm layer of clothes. Anyone with mobility issues should contact the organisers to discuss what accommodations might be available. There will be opportunities to purchase additional refreshments at some of our stops. Although most accept card payment, some cash may be useful.

A walking historical geography tour of Drumcondra – Walking Tour

Location: Dublin

Details: The historic suburb of Drumcondra, home to two of DCU’s campuses, has a fascinating history which will be explored during this walking tour. Drawing on cartographic evidence, including the Irish Historic Towns Atlas, we will explore the area’s evolving landscape and its changing relationship with the city of Dublin, from monastic farmland to elite rural retreat and ultimate incorporation as an inner suburb. We will investigate Drumcondra’s characteristic built fabric, see some of its oldest buildings, and hear about ‘two weddings, many funerals’ and some aeronautical escapades!

Meeting Point: Meet in front of Belvedere House, DCU St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra Road Upper at 10am. Tour stops will include the exteriors of Belvedere House, St John the Baptist Church, Drumcondra House, Drumcondra Public Library, a variety of nineteenth and twentieth century housing, and Griffith Park.

To Note: Most of the walking will be on city streets, although there may be some uneven ground in the graveyard. A moderate level of fitness is required. Be prepared for changeable weather. The walk will be centred on the village of Drumcondra. There will not be a formal coffee stop but there will be plenty of places along the route where supplies can be obtained.

Duration: 2.5 hours

Price: €15.00 per person

Reading Boyne Valley Landscapes – Bus Tour

Location: Meath

Details: The Boyne Valley offers a microcosm of Ireland’s physical and human geography. The challenge is to read this from sustainability and development perspectives. Combinations of glaciation, flood plains, and cropping offered a topography in which the Neolithic revolution flourished. Necropolis monuments dot the landscape. Celtic kings’ earthworks remain visible at Tara. Juxtaposed are monastic sites with iconic Celtic crosses, round-towers, and a cell where the Book of Kells (800 AD) was written. The Valley lies within the Anglo-Norman (12-15th century) defensive walls and ditch of the Pale. The Battle of the Boyne (1690) site is now officially shared heritage(s) space open to the public. Imprints of landlord estates and colonial villages such as Slane become evident, when contrasted with bocage landscapes of owner-occupied small farms created after the Great Famine (1845) and subsequent resistance struggles (1848-1922). The Valley is within Dublin’s commuter zone and is 60 Km from Northern Ireland; 120 Km from Belfast. The thriving multisectoral economy reflects that of the island with strategic sectors: food, tech, tourism, pharma, and financial services. Ireland ranks eight, out of 191 countries in the UN HDI (2023) despite major problems in housing provision, a much-disputed public health system, and rising new Right populist phenomenon.

Meeting Point: Depart DCU at 9.15am to travel to the Boyne Valley. Sites visited will depend on weather conditions, access availability and time. Returning to DCU c. 6pm.

To Note: In the Boyne Valley there will be walking around some of the stops. Some of this will be on maintained, fairly flat paths but other parts may be on hilly or rough ground. Please dress appropriately for all weather types (it is Ireland) and bring at a minimum a waterproof jacket. You will need a bag to carry your packed lunch, please add water and an extra warm layer of clothes. Anyone with mobility issues should contact the organisers to discuss what accommodations might be available.

Early attempts at social housing in Dublin – Walking Tour

Location: Dublin

Details: Dublin was regarded as having the worst working class housing in the UK during the latter years of the nineteenth century. Local Government policy to combat this was slow to develop, in common with the rest of the UK. Initial attempts focused on public health issues but were hampered by poor legislation and an unwillingness to spend ‘public’ money. The first projects involved facilitating third parties but this proved so ruinously expensive that by the mid 1880s, Dublin Corporation was ready to develop, build and manage public housing on its own behalf. Policy developed gradually, sometimes driven by principle, sometimes by pragmatism and there were reverses from time to time. This fieldwalk will focus on the early projects of Dublin Corporation and will examine the nature of housing provision and discuss the evolution of policy. Most early projects were small scale and located in what is now the inner city. Many were well built and have survived relatively unchanged into the twenty-first century and have vibrant communities and show the different approaches taken in those early days.

Meeting Point: Meet at Smithfield Market, Dubin City Centre at 9.30am. This is easily reached by public transport or is a short walk from O’Connell Street. The walk will encompass an area west of Smithfield Market, crossing the River Liffey to examine locations in the Francis Street area (the Liberties). This is the oldest surviving part of the city and many other features can be seen as we move from location to location. It is not a loop walk but we will never be far from the city centre or public transport.

To Note: Most of the walking will be on city streets, but the route does cover some hilly ground. A moderate level of fitness is required. Be prepared for changeable weather. The walk takes place in a busy city centre environment so please take due care during the walk. There will not be a formal coffee stop but there will be plenty of places along the route where supplies can be obtained.

Duration: 2.5 hours

Price: €15.00 per person

Landlord Landscapes of County Wicklow – Bus Tour

Location: Wicklow

Details: It can be argued that Ireland’s landscape in the 19th century was a landlord landscape. The majority of landlords, the landed ruling classes, had come to land ownership in Ireland initially through land confiscated during the plantations of Ireland in the 16th and early 17th centuries and later through the Cromwellian land transfers of the later 1600s. As such the landlords were seen and saw themselves as different to the majority of the Irish population. One of the most dramatic ways this difference was displayed was through the urban settlements they established, alongside the ornate landscapes they laid down as the locations for the large country houses they constructed as their family homes. This excursion will provide participants with an opportunity of visiting and exploring several of these historic landscapes and houses in county Wicklow. Located immediately to the south of Dublin, Wicklow is often referred to as the ‘Garden of Ireland’.

Meeting Point:Depart DCU at 9.15am and travel south through the City Centre and on to Wicklow. Stops include visits to Enniskerry and Powerscourt House and Gardens in east Wicklow before travelling to west Wicklow to visit Russborough House. Returning to DCU at 6pm.

To Note: While all sites are safe and accessible, delegates should be prepared for walking on rough or uneven ground. Please dress appropriately for all weather types (it is Ireland) and bring at a minimum a waterproof jacket. Please bring some water and an extra warm layer of clothes.

Gentrification, Uneven Development and Resistance in The Liberties of Dublin–  Walking Tour

Location: Dublin

Details : The Liberties area in Dublin, marked by a historical legacy of impoverishment and recent waves of gentrification, reflects a complex urban landscape.

Commencing with an overview of the area and exploring the Guinness Quarter’s redevelopment plans, the tour will include meetings with representatives from the Digital Hub campus for technology companies. Throughout, we will explore the endeavours of community organizations and residents dedicated to fostering a healthy and sustainable community. Insights from long-term residents in the Liberties Oliver Bond social-housing flats will offer a unique perspective on growing up in a stigmatized neighbourhood. Additionally, the tour through Thomas Street and Francis Street will highlight contrasting examples of residential and commercial upscaling tailored for tourists and students.

Meeting Point: Meet at 2:30 pm at the bottom of St. Patrick’s Tower at The Digital Hub, Roe Lane, Liberties. From there we will walk through the Guinness Quarter, Thomas Street and finish on Francis Street around 5pm.

Dublin’s “Silicon Docks”– Walking Tour

Location: Dublin

Details: This walking tour examines the remarkable transformation of the former Dublin docklands over the last thirty years. Adjoining the city centre, the docklands were left largely derelict by the relocation or closure of port functions and related industries in the 1970s and 1980s. However, they then became a leading locational focus for the surge of inward investment, especially in service activities, which drove the high economic growth rates which Ireland has enjoyed since the early 1990s. The tour looks initially at the International Financial Services Centre whose establishment in 1987 sparked off the area’s revival. It then crosses the River Liffey to the Grand Canal Dock area which has been dubbed “Silicon” Dock due the concentration of IT-based activities, especially internet-mediated services. This area is now home to such leading international firms as Google, Meta, TikTok, LinkedIn and Accenture. The tour takes about three hours (coffee break included), starting at the Custom House and ending at Trinity College, Dublin.

Meeting Point: Meet at Dublin’s Custom House at 10am to embark on a walking tour through Dublin’s Docklands. The tour will finish c. 1pm on Westland Row near the back entrace to Trinity College Dublin.

Duration: 3 Hours

Price: €15.00 per person

Building the resilience of coastal social-ecological systems in Galway – Bus Tour

Location: Galway

Details: Are coastal social-ecological systems resilient? This fieldtrip showcases examples in Galway where technocratic measures are being used to build resilience but at the same time questioning the ethics of expecting people to be resilient within the constraints of current planning regulations. Coastal protection and risk reduction strategies are urgently required in Ireland to minimise the impact of continued sea-level rise, storm surges, coastal flooding and erosion. Because not all coasts are equal, the physical and socio-economic setting significantly affects the choice of coastal protection or conservation strategy. In ideal circumstances, our coastlines should evolve naturally, and humans should adapt to change, but this is not feasible everywhere. The fieldtrip will visit sites where coastal squeeze is adversely impacting natural processes and discuss feasible options how to manage current and future coastal risks like chromic erosion and flooding. The fieldtrip visits a very successful urban beach-dune NbS that embodies the challenges of planning and implementing NbS in Ireland. The case study highlights how our conceptual and technical understanding of coastal resilience was used to effectively restore a coastal ecosystem. This relied on effective communication between scientists and practitioners, new collaborative structures between stakeholders (scientists, local planners, residents, businesses and NGOs) and a shift away from legacy practices in the way we think about coastal management.

Meeting Point: Depart DCU at 8am sharp and travel to Galway. Meet the fieldtrip leader at 11am at Spanish Arch, Galway City Centre. The tour will visit Grattan Beach and Silverstrand Beach with a stop for lunch. The fieldtrip will end c.3.30pm. Delegates can choose to stay in Galway subject to their own arrangements or to return to Dublin. Delegates returning to Dublin will have time to explore the City before the coach departs at 6.30pm returning to Dublin by c.9pm.

To Note: While all sites are safe and accessible, delegates should be prepared for walking on rough or uneven ground. Please dress appropriately for all weather types (it is Ireland) and bring at a minimum a waterproof jacket. You will need a bag to carry your packed lunch, please add water and an extra warm layer of clothes. Anyone with mobility issues should contact the organisers to discuss what accommodations might be available.

Peatland degradation and restoration in Ireland – Bus Tour

Location: Wicklow and Kildare

Details: This fieldtrip will visit several locations in the Wicklow mountains and Kildare. The trip focuses on degradation and restoration in both mountain blanket bogs and low land raised bogs. Both habitats are abundant in Ireland but globally rare. They are also highly degraded due to land use change over the last two centuries. Agriculture, forestry, domestic peat cutting for fuel and industrial peat cutting for fuel and horticulture have all played a role in their degradation. The Wicklow Mountain blanket bog area is the highest continuous area of upland blanket bogs in the country. We will follow a transect across the mountains following the Military Road from north to south. There will be several stops where we can examine the impact of land use change on the peatland and its carbon store. The morning section will end with lunch in Laragh village (included). In the afternoon we will drive over the Wicklow Gap and head into the midlands to an industrial peatland that is undergoing active rehabilitation and water table management. There may be an opportunity to meet with local farmers who work on peat soils.

This fieldtrip is generously supported by IGU Commission on Land Degradation and Desertification (http://www.comland.org/) and the Geomorphological Association of Ireland.

Meeting Point: Meet at the entrance to DCU at 8.45am for departure at 9am SHARP. The bus will take us to several stops along the route. In the morning there will be several short stops. After lunch, we will visit 1-2 sites in the midlands and return to DCU c. 6pm.
