Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    On a Sunny Summers day; a 20 mins Dart ride to the Southside to Seapoint; an enclave of delight. Tide dependant one can join the Dublin bathers and plunge into the cool, crisp Irish sea. Revitalising and refreshing you will feel so uplifted your feet will not feel the ground beneath you. To cap it off treat yourself to a delicious cuppa in any of the cafes dotted along your walk to Dunlaoghaire or Blackrock. it will be an experience you will reminisce with joy and delight.

    Friday 29th July we drove to the South Bull Wall, we were here to walk the Wall to the Poolbeg Lighthouse.

    We parked up in a small parking area at the top of this beach, which is located between Irishtown and the South Bull wall. A disused power station with it's two iconic red and white chimneys is nearby.

    We walked along the beach towards the South Bull Wall, it was a bit of a bonus as we had not anticipated doing so.

    A crescent shaped beach with dark brown sand it is a wild and rugged beach that is cared for by nature and washed by the Irish Sea. It is protected by rocks to the rear and the Wall along one side.

    From here we were treated to great views across Dublin Bay, with Bray and Dun Laoghaire on one side and Howth on the other.

    Whilst it is very picturesque here we got the impression that it was a scenic walking area rather than a functional beach.
