Bird Watching Dublin

The Dodder River rises in the Wicklow Mountains. Meandering through south Dublin, it joins the River Liffey at Grand Canal Dock. This walk starts at Terenure, then passes through Milltown and finishes at Clonskeagh. It is roughly 7 Kilometres to do the round trip. The terrain is level. The walk is beside the river bank, making it easier to see birds and wildlife. Bizarrely, there is a Rhinoceros in the middle of the river near Milltown! A bronze sculpture appeared overnight almost 20 years ago. Nobody has ever claimed credit for it!

I started my walk on a busy Saturday morning in June, at the following co-ordinates: 53.304807, -6.280722 . I found parking on Westbourne Road (about 3 minutes walk away). The co-ordinates are: 53.305764, -6.283030 .

You can try another walk along the Dodder River at Bohernabreena Reservoir!
