About 29th Dublin Scouts

Scout Sign

We are an Irish scout troop based in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, Ireland. We're a member of Scouting Ireland. Scouting Ireland is a multi-denominational, co-educational, youth based association across the entire island of Ireland. We have our own scout den and our own grounds just by the sea. We practice the scout method through our weekend activities and weekly meetings to young people between the ages of 6 and 26. We have a long history in the community of Blackrock, first founded by Peter Pender in 1940. Between our different age groups we teach Scouting skills such as pioneering, hiking, rock climbing, backwoods survival training, sailing, canoeing, first aid and other really useful skills.
