Our Top Hikes/Walks In Dublin

As we go through these tough times, we need to look after each other. Dublin has entered level 3 so here at OnTheQT we decided to share some outdoor walks you can do in the fresh air in Dublin while staying a safe distance from others. Your mental health is very important and fresh air will help clear your head during these times. Below are a list of some of our favourite walks in Dublin. Always be mindful if you think a place looks busy, avoid going for your walk in that area. Go for your walk in a different spot. Dublin is full of beautiful places to walk and enjoy so you are spoilt for choice.

PAINTING WORKSHOP WITH DON CONROY

I don’t know about you but I used to love painting along on The Den on RTÉ with Don Conroy. My favourite time of the day was Draw with Don on The Den. Anybody else remember those happy times from their childhood? Over lockdown, Don’s YouTube channel took off and many people rekindled their love for art and drawing. Now you can draw live as The Lodge at Ashford have launched a painting workshop with the talented Don Conroy. I love when you can mix a hobby you love with a staycation. It makes for a fantastic break away.
