What is the Bohemian Way?

The Bohemian Way is a journey through Dublin 7, from the Gate Cottage at the Phoenix Park to Dalymount, the home of Irish Football.

As you explore the North inner city you will uncover 3 interwoven stories ‐ - the history of our football club, the history of our city, and the story of our future climate transition.

The route will be filled with songs, poems and art pieces created by artists like John Francis Flynn, Dorothy Smith and Lewis Kenny.

How does it work?

The Bohemian Way will use a specially-designed app to guide you through Dublin 7. As you explore, you will discover icons that reveal audio, video or physical installations relating to different aspects of the Bohemian Way.

The Bohemian Way app will be available for free from the App Store and the Google Play store.

Creative Climate Action

The Bohemian Way is one of 15 projects supported by the Creative Climate Action Fund.

The Creative Climate Action Fund focuses on bringing a creative approach to illustrating and making the changes needed to fight climate change.

Led by Creative Ireland, the Fund supports projects that can meaningfully connect people with the profound changes that are happening in our environment, society and economy arising from climate change, and can transform that connection into behaviour change or climate action.

Thank you to the poets, musicians, artists, and our partners for making this project possible.
