Grand Canal Greenway

Printer-friendly version

The Grand Canal runs from Dublin to Offaly– a total of 117 kilometres.  The section of the Grand Canal within the Dublin City Council Administrative Area runs between Blackhorse Bridge at the Naas Road through Drimnagh, Dolphins Barn, Harold’s Cross, Portobello, Ranelagh and into the Grand Canal Docks.  The Grand Canal Greenway is part of the National Cycle Network.

The first Dublin section of the Grand Canal Greenway, 3.6km, between Portobello and Grand Canal Docks was officially opened in March 2012. Dublin City Council has made considerable progress in developing the preliminary design of the 4km section between Blackhorse Bridge and Portobello.  The project interacts with other strategic infrastructure projects and will be proceeding to public consultation on completion of its integration with the proposed core bus corridor projects.
