This is the best way to enjoy Dublin during the ESGE conference. A nice early morning run in the April in Dublin in the middle of spring.
The running tour starts early on the Saturday morning when the city streets of Dublin are quiet. The tour begins at the Convention Centre by the banks of the Liffey before bringing you by the Custom House, O’ Connell bridge and the more famous Halpenny bridge. This activity is a great way to keep healthy on your trip and enjoy the city the “green” way.
We then run into the heart of Temple Bar where you can see the cobble streets and the pub fronts. We leave the party place behind and the route brings us to where Dublin began, in the grounds of Dublin Castle. This area is divided into three and each area has it’s own individual architecture and story. We continue where our national saint St. Patrick spread christianity.
The route continues and brings you into the narrow colourful streets of the food quarter and shopping streets of Dublin. We stop at the Molly Malone statue and then continue into the front square of Trinity College Dublin. After learning a little about Dublin’s presitigious University from a former student you are introduced to Georgian Dublin. This tour will be not only be full of local history but also sweat and fun! While we run, we will tell you some secret stories about the memorable buildings, the famous Guinness family, and some literature heroes, Oscar Wilde and James Joyce.
This running tour dives into the local history and is suitable for every kind of runner. It’s an unique experience that you will bring back home as a special memory after the ESGE Conference.
We will fully customise the tour to your running needs and make sure to split the group for different paces. All in all the tour will take an hour to complete.
