  • A freezing cold and windy day added to the character of this lovely fishing village. Loads to do. Restaurants plentiful and very good. 
  • Is the perfect Sunday dubliners. Go to play golf in the fields around, Buying fresh fish, Are filmed in the beautiful nature. If you are in Dublin you should go for strength, is the natural taste of Ireland you have promo, the small harbour with fishing boats is quaint, yet we aono buildings of the past, and the lighthouse makes everything magical. There are great places to eat the fish. The giratina in nature is a must and you pour views are breathtaking. To get there from Dublin with Dart takes 30 min, don't be afraid to get lost, everyone is ready to help you as soon as they see you with a map in hand.
