About the tour

Opened in June 2007 and designed by American Landscape Architect Martha Schwartz, this 10,000 sq metre square is located at Grand Canal Dock on the south side of the river Liffey between Sir John Rogerson's Quay and Pearse Street and is one of the largest paved public spaces in Dublin city. It is expected to become a key cultural destination for Docklands and the city. Join me to discover an exciting urban space in Dublin's docklands as we walk along the River Liffey and continue on to Grand Canal Square to see modern Dublin and the influence of Big Tech on the Irish economy!

Meet Dave Kavanagh

Dave Kavanagh

Dave is a native of Dublin and has worked as a tour guide in Dublin for the last 2 years, his previous profession was in sales and marketing and he certainly has the gift of the gab. He lived in the U.S for 25 years and on his return to Dublin he found that there was a lot about his city that was previously unknown to him, so he set about getting reacquainted with all things Dublin, its culture, history, and its people along with all its famous landmarks. Dave's passion is tour guiding and showing off Dublin's fair city to visitors. He is the owner of Dublin Rogues Tour a walking tour set in Merrion Square, Dublin showcasing Irish writers, artists, politicians, rebels, and freedom fighters.
