Port Places App Walk with Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre

March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Explore the depth of history in Pembroke Dock with the ‘Port Places’ app. Through walking tours, multimedia collections and stories, Port Places provides a range of themed experiences covering the seaports of Fishguard, Pembroke Dock, Holyhead, Dublin and Rosslare Harbour, their local attractions, and the crossings between them. The app allows the user to download their choice of curated experiences, each providing a vision of port life, crossings, creativity, history and heritage.

For Pembroke Dock, the initial offerings on the app are the Town Trail and the Pembroke Dock to Rosslare crossing. Join Martin Cavaney, Gareth Mills, the Ports, Past and Present team and other expert guides for a walk along the Pembroke Dock town trail. During the walk we will visit sites of interest, learn how to use the app navigate the rich heritage of the area, and enjoy a coffee at the Heritage Centre. The trail is suitable for all abilities and is wheelchair accessible.

Please contact Claire Nolan to book your place: clairenolan@ucc.ie – it is advised to book early as places are limited!
