4 Scenic Running Routes Around Dublin

We don’t know about you, but we’ve swapped the gym membership for outdoor training now that the sun rises earlier and it’s gracing us with it’s presence a lot more! We’re very lucky to live in such a beautiful city so get out and hit the pavement on these routes for a scenic view and some good exercise.

1. Grand Canal

From the Harolds Cross Bridge to Grand Canal Dock is about 6km but you can use the bridges in between to shorten your route. It’s a lovely run along the boats and under the willow trees.
