  • Great sandy beach ideal for little ones to run and play, bring a picnic and just relax. lovely for a walk too. we will definitely be back. 
  • The northern part of Dublin since the 1960s marked by ever-growing quantities of dull gray suburbs. But! The suburbs holds a wealth of beautiful and free public lands-beaches, park, manor houses and castles. This is where the locals are puffing out, get some exercise and meet. Dollymount or The bull wall, depending on which parts of the beach you are using is really one of the most visited of these breathing holes for the city. Port approaches to Dublin has since the Viking age had eternal problems with silting. We tried first with a harbour wall to the South and then in the 1800-century this long wall on the north side-this is The Bull Wall-with an old cozy wooden bridge still uses to get out to the beach. The beach was an unplanned b-gain with the port wall-a natural sandbar which is grown above-Beach 5 km in length was now around Dollymount to over 1800 century. It is named after a now demolished great Manor Dollymount house onto the Mainland. It is easy and fast to reach out here from the city centre by bus, bike, etc. It is the place to go jogging. It is an established tradition for me with a morning trip down here when I'm in town. It pulls off the beach is prospect with Howth head in the East, which frame the Dublin Bay and the view towards the city's southern part of Killiney and Dalkey Hill town to the West with the power company, two iconic giant Tower-Poolbeg peninsula power station all framed by the old soft Wicklow mountain. To experience the sunset-dusk by an evening walk along the bull wall or the beach is quite magical. It is family-friendly and not dangerous in any way. Until a few years ago one could run down on the whole Beach-many young people in Dublin got their first driving lessons with Dad or mom here! Now we can only run down the beach in some limited areas. So it is very safe to move here. If it blows well, there are many wind surfing, kite surfing etc. It is a classic Sunday tradition. Take a pint afterwards by Connolly's-the Sheds in Clontarf or nap a good and affordable Sunday buffet on The Yacht or Clontarf Castle afterwards.
