The pier of this harbor is very walkable with lively entertainment and a few food establishments. Views are spectacular.

What a great walk on a nice sunny day. Flat enough for folk with disabilities and long enough for a decent hike.

During sunny days, I used to come to this place to walk, see the spectacular Dublin Bay, you can walk along the coast area or the visitors' pathway. It is a long walk but you will not feel the length since a lot of people walking. There are also free binocular for you to use to see the view of... More

This is a habitual walk by most of my friends and family. On a good day (wind blowing, dry and not too cold) it will energise the cockles of your heart. Do it and while you are at it, take in the walk and extend your day by walking down to the forty foot. A nice walk with a real... More

Beautiful harbour pier walk. So clean and well maintained. Great for all the family. Plenty of walking space without getting in the way of any passers by. Toilet facilities available beside the lighthouse at the end. Sale of coffee or ice-cream refreshments. Definitely worth a visit. Had a beautiful day out here. Would highly recommend.

As per the title it's a pleasant walk with a nice view at the end. Obviously depends on the weather but on a nice spring or summer day it's lovely . Takes anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes to do depending on your energy levels and if you are running, strolling or 'power walking'.
