Beautiful beach and great views as you walk down towards it from the Vico Road. Stony beach but great for the dogs. See photos.

Long walk down to the beach but good safe stairs with handrails. The beach is pebbles, not sand but smooth and comfortable on your feet.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach in Killiney. It brought back childhood memories to me having been born there in 1940 in 2 Browns Cottages which were right down by the side of the railway.
