Sandymount Strand, Dublin

#6 of 11 in Beaches in County Dublin
Sandymount Strand (Irish: Dumhach Thrá) is a large strand on the east coast of Ireland, adjacent to the village and suburb of Sandymount in Dublin. It is part of South Bull - a major component of the south side of Dublin Bay, and part of the Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve. South Bull is a mirror to the North Bull sandbank, which grew into North Bull Island.


Sandymount Strand is a popular place for locals to take a walk. People, and in the past - there is no longer public vehicular access - cars, have been occasionally trapped by the incoming tide. A large inlet of water that remains even at low tide is known locally as "Cockle Lake".

  • Stunning day at the sandy mount beach, even the wind couldn't keep us away! The tide was out allowing at least a 2km walk out towards the sea. The beach looks short on Google maps, but when the tide is out its a stunning walk.
  • Not really fresh air in. Overall is pleasant place .
  • Nice one
  • A nice walk for somewhere close to the city. Along the pathway is lovely but the beach itself is a little dirty on approach.
  • Amazing and peaceful place! Absolutely love it!
