“For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement.” Charles Baudelaire
A flâneur is a man who saunters about, observing the city. A romantic and a thinker, he can blend into the city space without fear for his safety: a luxury that men and women don’t share equally. Dublin is a very walkable city; from the Docklands to the gates of Phoenix Park in less than four kilometres. From the Rosie Hackett bridge to the women of the Easter Rising, and the Moore Street traders to Outhouse, discover the hidden stories of women who lived in the city on this fascinating audio walking tour.
