Sunday 10th September 2023 - Heuston station

On Sunday 10th of September, Dublin Sketchers will sketch at Heuston station from 2pm and meet for drinks at The Galway Hooker Bar (located inside the train station) from 4pm.

Heuston station is a busy train station with an interesting architecture. The station opened in 1846 as Kingsbridge station and was renamed Heuston station in 1966 in honour of Seán Heuston, one of the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. The passenger terminal and buildings were built to designs by London-born architect Sancton Wood and the train sheds and infrastructure were designed by Irish-born railway engineer John MacNeill. 

Heuston station is a nice indoor location for a rainy day. There are several cafés and a lot of opportunities to sketch people. Seán Heuston Bridge located nearby is also worth sketching. 

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone at 2pm, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! Please bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

If you would like your sketch to be added to the website, email it to or post it to the Dublin Sketchers Social WhatsApp group if you are on that. Please edit your image so that it is low res and properly oriented for posting to the website. If you are 

posting your sketch on Instagram please #dublinsketchers #urbansketchers.

Hope to see you there!
