Great tip for a beach in Dublin

The best way how to get on the beach in Dublin is to go to Blackrock dart station and just walk over a bridge. This gets you right on this brilliant spot. Enjoy 

Quick summer tip - all the beaches you can go to around Dublin

Are you in Dublin during these hot days?
It's just great when you can go to the beach any time during the summer.
These are my tips :
Rush village beach
 There is a lot of nice beaches in the north direction from Dublin. Rush village beach is one of them. It only takes 30 minutes to drive from Dublin or you can use public transport
http://www.dublinbus.ie/en/Your-Journey1/Timetables/All-Timetables/33/. Really nice beach and all within walking distance.

Skerries port
There is more options to get off the bus or the motorway and go to Donabate or Skerries. Skerries town is full of life, bars, port and the beach is spacious.

If you want to head south from Dublin the best way is to take dart (train) http://www.irishrail.ie/

Dun Laoghaire pier
Dun Laoghaire is a cute town with a few small beaches around. Just take the Dart  and get of the train at the Dun Laoghaire station, just turn right and walk straight down and you'll find lots of spots. Can be busy but you will enjoy it because the ambiance of Dun Laoghaire is just amazing.

The further on the coast you go the better Bray, Dalkey and Greystones follow the coast line on the dart. For sure you'll find amazing spots over there. Bray is the biggest town with lots of bars and shops around. Make sure you have some food and drink supplies for Greystones and Dalkey beaches.

Johnnie Foxe's walk

                   The best pub in Dublin (nearly)

Johnie Foxes pub panorama

This is the best pub around, great food as well....special atmosphere,
you get a chance to meet locals, tourists or immigrants of any nationality which have settled  here in Ireland. The menu is excellent & affordable. The walk is medium & it's worth doing it.

You have several options what way to do the walk. There is a public bus to this place n.44b but it only works during the weekdays.
  • Dublin - Wicklow way - Glencullen, public bus back or take the official to town
  • Dublin public bus - walk back .....over three rock 

I prefer to walk the Wickow way, because it's much nicer but both walks have something....
The way back..follow the map Way back.
Enjoy the pints!

The Sugarloaf walk

Wicklow mountains are called the garden of Ireland so if you ever come to Dublin. You should discover this area. 
The first tip for a nice trip is the Sugarloaf hill. How to get there if you have no car?
There are several other ways how to get there...
The easiest first
This bus takes you from town .....take this bus to Kilmacanogue and the bus will drop you off just under the hill of Sugarloaf. Make sure you ask the driver.  You can just climb up the hill and enjoy the spectacular view.
This is link the map of the walk
After you get to the top you can walk down to Kilamacanogue village, just follow the tracks.
You can take bus n. 145 back....Timetable
Very easy to do
Make sure you have good shoes.
