Dublin is a fantastic city and is a popular destination for tourists – pop to have a drink of Guinness at a traditional Irish bar, seethe historical St Patrick’s Cathedral and see a show before heading for a bite to eat at one of the restaurants near Olympia theatre like https://www.forno500.ie/
But on top of all this, it is also a city that is surrounded with spectacular countryside – so when all of that city life gets a bit too much, you can head for some of the stunning places that give the Emerald Isle its well deserved name! Here are a few spectacular walks that you can enjoy near Dublin…
Killiney Hill -This is not only a spectacular walk where you will see the beautiful scenery of Ireland, but it is also not too much hard work! You can drive up as far as the car park and take the shorter walk, where you will see the views from the top, or you can walk from Dalkey to the top.
Montpellier Loop – This walk gives great views over the city of Dublin, as well as to a haunted lodge! It only takes around an hour but gets the blood pumping and is worth the climb when you get to the top.
Howth Cliffs – For sea views that are spectacular head to Howth cliff. Right outside of Dublin it is easy to get to and the views over the sea are simply stunning.
