. Beautiful walk starting by our b and b near Sandycove train station. Lots of great eating places near the end of the walk near dun laoghorie train station. Be lazy and ride the train back.

Fantastic walk to end of pier, some work going on at present but it seems to be to improve the pier itself. Nice and bracing!
