Event Details


The Kingfisher Project, in collaboration with Harold’s Cross Village Community Council, Dublin City Council and Green Foundation Ireland, invite you to join us in:


SATURDAY 18 and SUNDAY 19 MAY 2024
from 10:00 to 14:00

Venue: Blarney Park Allotments
Kimmage, Dublin, D12 W8C8


There is no need to book for this event – you can just turn up.


The Kingfisher Project is repurposing and transforming public lands at Blarney Park Allotments on the banks of the River Poddle at Kimmage in Dublin into a community knowledge, awareness and educational resource to address our relationship with the natural world and to build community capacity and resilience to cope with the consequences of human induced climate change and the loss of biodiversity.

The Kingfisher Project is a catalyst for attitudinal, behavioural and consumption pattern change that centres on enriching individual households and the urban environment through knowledge, awareness and interaction with nature and the community action it inspires.

Discover more about the project and about what we can do to help bring nature back into our towns and cities.



Please come by foot or cycle if at all possible, as the lane is not suitable for cars.

From Harold’s Cross Park, walk / cycle / drive up Kimmage Road Lower past McGowan’s Pub. You will pass the entrance to Mount Argus Church and Mount Argus Park on the right-hand side.

At Sundrive Cross (Grian Café at the corner), turn right. With Supervalu Shopping Centre on your left, take the next left turn into Blarney Park at Pickles deli (on the corner).

Immediately turn left again into the laneway opposite Sundry Laundry, follow the laneway to the River Poddle and the gates to the Kingfisher Project at the end of the lane.
