Day tourists from Dublin enjoy visiting the coastline at Brittas Bay, 40 minutes drive south from the city, just four kilometres off the N11 motorway. The Bay meanders through coves, rocky areas and caves, interspersed with stretches of bright, soft and sandy beach perfect for swimming and walking.
Be sure to visit Silver Strand, a popular and swimming area at the foot of a sloping hillside. The Strand has consistently been ranked as “Blue Flag” – awarded only to European beaches of the highest quality – by the EU. And don’t forget your camera – the surrounding dunes are rich with a variety of native coastal wildlife.
