Event Description

Hello and Happy Friday to you all!

With the sun shining on us this week we have to go out and take the opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors, so this Sunday we will be found wandering the Phoneix Park - specifically the area surrounding the Magazine Fort. There are spectacular views from this area across to the Dublin Mountains - so it's perfect for a nice spot of painting or sketching. We will meet at the foot of the Fort - just by the exit from the Park to the Conyngham Road.

For those on foot - the best entrance is the turnstile entrance which is just on the Conyngham Road at the Junction of the South Circular. When you walk up those steps, turn left and follow the road until you see the fort up in front of you. It's a lovely walk. If you are walking from the main entrance to the Phoenix Park, it will take about 15-20 minutes - take a left after the large Wellington Monument and keep going. You'll see it in front of you on your right.

There is lots of information on the Magazine Fort here on the Abandoned Ireland site - well worth taking a look before visiting! Also, very closeby is Farmleigh House and gardens, plus numerous beautiful open areas and woodlands to spend some time in. Definitely won't be short of something to inspire you!

At 4pm, we will meet back at the Fort, at the bottom of the hill near the Islandbridge junction. From there, we will decide what to do for coffee, whether it be the Zoo cafe/tea gardens or another alternative. Here's to the fine weather and it staying sunny for us! Check the blog for a map of the area if you are unsure of the Phoenix Park layout!

See you on Sunday,
