Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

A shorter version of the popular 'Hammered Hiking' trek, a little less time on your legs, but an enjoyable evenings entertainment all the same. Step out of the city and spend the evening hiking into rural Dublin to a traditional Irish bar with magnificent views of the City.

From our start point we'll spend about 45 minutes walking through suburban Dublin and into the countryside, to the edge of Dublin's civilisation, where we'll stop for a drink at the Blue Light Bar, overlooking the city with views from Howth to Killiney.

After a beer and a chat we'll hike up a sometimes steep hillside past an old quarry to enjoy great views of the city, from where I'll point out the cities major sites and attractions.

We'll return to the Blue Light, where we can stop for a well earned pint, and depending on the weather we can snuggle up to an open turf fire and a possible trad session, or a drink al fresco. Hopefully the night will be closing in and we'll be able to see the city light up in front of us.

Along the way we'll talk about Irish history, sport, politics, culture, myths, and fairy tales. Pick a topic and we'll give it a shot.

This is a shortened version of Hammered Hiking, catering for those with less time on their hands or with the desire for a shorter hike.

Meet your host, Aidan

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I'm a Donegal native living the Dublin area since 2002. I work in Dublin's Finance Industry by day and like to hike by night. I've traveled the world hiking to Ciudad Perdida, Machu Pichu and the Everest Base Camp. I always found the journey every bit as satisfying as the destination, mainly due to the opportunity it provides to get to know the stories of fellow travelers and the unique local perspective of a guide. I'm well versed in Ireland's history, politics, sport and culture and am happy to tackle any topic as we hike to a pint.
