Drimnagh Castle 17th June 2018

Sunday 17th June 2018 Dublin Sketchers will be sketching at Drimnagh Castle, Longmile Road, Dublin 12 between 2PM and 4PM. Picnic 4PM.

Drimnagh Castle (www.drimnaghcastle.org )is a medieval castle a short distance west of the centre of Dublin city. It consists of a great hall, undercroft, tower, 17thc  formal gardens and is surrounded by a moat. There’s medieval insignia, wood and stone carvings, arches and vaults, bridge, folly, decorative tiles, ducks, trees, hedges, herbal plants, flowers and the resident ghost, Eleanora,

Public transport: Buses 18, 151 and 56A stop directly outside the castle. Buses 77A and 27 stop a 5 minute walk away (Eleanora pub). The redline Luas stops at Bluebell and Kylemore each about a 10 minute walk away.

There will be a picnic from 4PM. This will be a chicken paella with rice, chorizo, peppers, onions and peas cooked on a large pan over a wood fire. A small charge will be made to cover the cost of the food.

New people come along almost every week so don't be shy about introducing yourself.  It's a nice friendly gathering and you'll get know us socially at the end of the sketching. You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.
