Port Places App Launch and ‘Walk and Talk’ with Five Lamps Arts, Dublin
August 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join Ports, Past and Present and Five Lamps Arts for the official launch of the ‘Port Places’ app in Dublin. Explore the depth of history and heritage surrounding five active ferry ports on the Irish Sea: Dublin Port, Rosslare Harbour, Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock. Drawing together walking tours, multimedia collections and stories, Port Places provides a range of themed experiences covering the ports, their local attractions, and the crossings between them in the Irish Sea.
The app allows the user to download their choice of curated experiences, each providing a vision of port life, creativity, history and heritage. For Dublin, the initial offering will be Five Lamps Arts’ North Wall Campshires walk and the stories of the Dublin to Holyhead Crossing. Come and celebrate the development of this exciting new initiative, join us for an app walk and talk, following the Five Lamps Arts’ tour of the Dublin Docklands and learn how to use the app to uncover and navigate the rich heritage of the Dublin Port area.
All are welcome to the launch, however places for the app walk and talk are limited and must be booked in advance via Eventbrite. Please ensure you book the correct event listing by clicking the links below:
