The Railway Procurement Agency, the State agency which oversees the Luas, are to offer free walking tours for the summer.
The agency says it is teaming up with author and walking tours specialist, Pat Liddy to provide the free walking tours on each of the four Saturday and Sunday mornings in July.
“This is a pilot project and is aimed at all those who are interested in finding out a bit more about some of the fascinating features, interesting folklore, intriguing characters and historical links along the Luas line between Heuston station and the recently-opened Luas Docklands extension to the Point,” said the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA).
“The tour and trip are entirely free and form part of the RPA’s commitment to open up the heart of Dublin to local and visitor alike.”
The tours start at the Heuston Station Luas stop at 10am on the mornings of Saturday July 3, Sunday July 4, Saturday July 10, Sunday July 11, Saturday July 17, Sunday July 18, Saturday July 24, and Sunday July 25.
Although the tours are free a valid ticket or tagged on smartcard will be needed to go with the tour from Heuston Station to the next destinations. The RPA notes that the tour get on and off trams along the route to the Docklands so a day ticket could be advised.
