Cycling Tour to Help Alleviate Homelessness

June 21, 2019

We have been lucky to see some sunshine this week. It is the perfect time to plan a cycle for the weekend and explore areas of the city that you haven’t seen before.

Just Eat have a new Cycle for Good campaign and you can have a positive impact on social matters and contribute to alleviate homelessness in Ireland.

As part of this campaign, Just Eat will donate 10 cents to the Peter McVerry Trust for each journey that’s taken on a Just Eat dublinbike (from May 1st to July 10th 2019).

Wondering where to visit on your cycle route?

Firstly, you will need to pick up a dublinbike (outside one of Dublin’s lesser known historical landmarks, Croppies’ Acre). Then you can cycle along the quays until you reach Smithfield, where you can visit the Jameson Distillery or stop in at the Lighthouse Cinema.

After that, you can travel out of the city centre towards the Phibsborough area stopping off at Blessington Street Basin (AKA ‘Dublin’s secret garden’, which was a former Victorian reservoir). This is the perfect spot for lunch!

Next stop is Drumcondra and Croke Park. Here you can visit the GAA Museum or take in a tour of this quite impressive stadium.

Finally, get back on your bike and cycle onto The Irish Emigration Museum in Dublin’s Docklands, where you will learn all about the history of Irish emigration before grabbing a delicious cup of coffee at any of the IFSC’s iconic cafés. You deserve it!
