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.

A below average beach with no sand whatsoever just hard stones, very painful to walk on barefoot not suitable for anyone looking for a beach experience

A quiet beach, one of those treats on the outskirts of Dublin that people can easily overlook - but well worth going for a walk on the pebbles beach with lovely surrounding views. Whilst we did not swim we watched a few swimming. Walking each...More
