The river Dodder is 26km long and passes Dublin suburbs of Tallaght and then Firhouse, travels through Rathfarnham, Templeogue, Rathgar, Milltown, Clonskeagh, Donnybrook, and Ballsbridge, and enters the Liffey near Ringsend, along with the Grand Canal, at Grand Canal Dock.
As it goes through these area, there are a range of walkways and green areas to enjoy.
This post focuses on a short but very enjoyable 2km walk from Mortons in Firhouse to Knocklyon. The track is in good condition and is suitable for buggies.
To the west of this section, the walkway also feeds into the River Dodder Linear Park.
While already an enjoyable place to walk through, this area has huge potential and many groups like Dodder Action and Knocklyon Network are pushing to get the local councils to invest is this great amenity to maximise its potential for the local communities.
