Nice easy way to get a bit of exercise. Stunning views of Dublin Bay, fresh clean air and more than a couple of places to dip your toes into the foam! Elderly or those with additional physical needs may find some sections difficult. There are...More

Lovely cliff walk trails. Keep left as you head for Howth Head and you can go down to a small beach for swimming. There are also several interesting cliff seagull rookeries.
