Northside coastal areas

The Northside coastal areas of Dublin offer a plethora of picturesque beaches, walks and golfing spots that are a perfect respite from the city centre. Howth head is a bracing walk that overlooks the whole of Dublin Bay and the harbor has a wealth of excellent seafood restaurants that feature some of the freshest produce in the city. Tours to nearby Ireland's Eye usually depart from Howth harbor during the summer months.


Bull Island and Dollymount Strand are also Dublin institutions and the strand is the only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in a capital city. The long, sandy expanse is the perfect place to fly kites or observe some sand marsh ecology and the St. Anne's Golf Club is sandwiched between the nature reserve and the Irish Sea.

Keen golfers will also enjoy Portmarnock Golf Club although it is still one of the only clubs that maintains a male-only membership policy.
