94 DART Crawls

Some 8 years ago, I found a website by a former Dublin student.
He and some of his friends at TC had an idea about a DART Crawl.

Visit 1 pub with good GUINNESS, less than 5 minutes walk from
The DART Stations. Part of The England Krokket Team and I,
had a small attempt in 2004.
02. Bray:                    The Harbour Bar, Seapoint Road
05. Dalkey:                Daniel Finnegan S. Lounge, 02 Sorrento Road
07. Sandycove:         The Eagle House, 18 Glastule Road
08. Dun Laoghaire:  James Smyth & Sons, 128 George’s Street Lower
12. Booterstown:      The Old Punch Bowl, 116 Rock Road

It was all good. But done properly, it’s at least 3 days work, covering all stations.
(- Make that 6 days…).

The DART Stations

Starting out in Greystones, as station number 1, way South of Dublin,
with The Howth, station number 28 as the last station, on The North Side.
