Killiney

(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: nature, beaches
Killiney is a seaside resort and suburb in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Ireland. The area is by the coast, south of neighbouring Dalkey, and north of Shankill. It is part of the Dáil Éireann constituency of Dún Laoghaire.AmenitiesKilliney Hill Park was opened in 1887 as Victoria Hill in honour of Britain's Queen Victoria's 50 years on the throne. The park boasts magnificent views of Dublin Bay, Killiney Bay, Bray Head and the mountain of Great Sugar Loaf (506 m), stretching from the Wicklow Mountains right across to Howth Head. The Park's topography is quite dramatic and its highest point, at the obelisk, is 170 metres above sea level.Other attractions include Killiney Beach, Killiney Golf Club, a local Martello Tower, and the ruins of Cill Iníon Léinín, the church around which the original village was based.The coastal areas of Killiney are often favourably compared to the Bay of Naples in Italy. This comparison is reflected in the names of surrounding roads, like Vico, Sorrento, Monte Alverno, San Elmo, and Capri. On clear days, the Mourne Mountains of County Down can be seen. Killiney Hill Park was once part of the estate of Killiney Castle, now a hotel. Since early 2010 a pod of bottlenose dolphins has been seen regularly in Killiney Bay.
