About the Course

The Affidea Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon is a point to point course that starts in Dublin’s Docklands area, runs along the north side of the Liffey River, and passes all fan favorites!  After crossing over Memorial Bridge, the route passes the famous Ha’Penny bridge, Christ Church Cathedral, Brazen Head Pub (Ireland’s oldest pub), James Joyce Museum, and the Guinness Brewery.  Runners continue past the Royal Hospital and Kilmainham Gaol into Phoenix Park, one of the largest walled city parks in Europe.  There the journey turns scenic as the route winds through the lush park, taking in the Wellington Monument, the Papal Cross, the President’s House (Áras an Uachtaráin) and the famous Dublin Zoo.
