  • Excellent choice for sunny mornings! We met at the Grand Canal and we were walking up to the Lighthouse, round trip with tranquility, enjoying the beautiful morning sun, were 15 km in 3 hours. The cool to go on sunny days, is that in the way we have a panoramic view of the Bay of Dublin! Wonderful!

  • Every time someone comes to visit me in Dublin I take them to the Poolbeg Lighthouse. I would recommend walking there, as you get a scenic view over the bay of Dublin. You can see everything from Aviv...  more »
  • The bus ride we arrived in Irishtown and wanted to take a walk to the lighthouse, but began to fall and the younger daughter was resting his legs and so we decided to walk around the reserve and the power plant just to the edge of the tip to see the lighthouse and the Bay. The lighthouse that was I think 7 km, we went just about 2 km on the beach we have collected beautiful shells. This trail is very popular with dog owners, we met many there, and also a few bězců. From the lighthouse, we drove to the town of Bray, and so we went by train from the stop Sandymount DART-a beautiful ride along the sea! I recommend!

  • Lovely view of Dublin bay and you can watch the ships coming and going from Dublin port. The walk along the pier is lovely on a summers evening.
  • A lovely spot for a long walk, a run or even a bike-ride (if you can take the cobblestones). One side offers a breathtaking view on the sea and the nearby coast, the other side is factories and containers management facilities.
  • I have done the walk out to the lighthouse regularly. It gives you an amazig view of dublin bay but the big downside is the stench coming from the sewage treatment plant near by if your caught upwind of it.
  • Great place for a long walk, quiet, beautiful, peaceful.
  • One of the best walks in Dublin. REALLY worth the trip.
