Aboveboard is ideally located near the beach at Salthill and Dun Laoghaire.(worth a visit anyway when your in Dublin) We also are on a direct DART line (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) which offers a coastal train ride all along the east coast. Get on the DART in one of the many stations in Dublin city centre and go north or south to Bray or Howth. Jump off at Salthill (south on the Dart)and just look out for the flags as we are located 200m from the DART and only 15 min from Central Dublin(defiantly worth the 3€ fare). A great day is assured just look at the reviews they speak for themselves. Thanks for taking the time to have a look at our page. As they say you can't buy happiness but you can rent a sup board and that bloody close! Many thanks the Aboveboard Team
