Pleasant Promenade

A great place to visit. Spectacular sea views peaceful surroundings and abundance of eating houses. St Anne's park is also worth a visit.

There are several public transit options for getting to and from Clontarf. I really like the shoreline. There is a linear park there that has random exercise equipment along the way. There are some other parks and restaurants around. Accommodations wise, I think the Clontarf Castle is the closest castle hotel to Dublin city centre. Pretty nice!

A really nice place to visit. Peaceful area. Great walks around shore and on Bull Island also inland - St Anne's park is a spectacular and spacious open area of natural almost unspoilt beauty. Quaint and interesting very varied architecture and still much to explore. Mysterious place the greatest mystery being how anyone can afford to live here - the... More

Clontarf is a really beautiful place. It starts under the bridge at Fairview and it is best to walk if you want to really appreciate the place. There are many collections of shops and places to stop if one wants to have something to eat or drink. The walk along the sea walk is really nice with a view of... More

Clontarf is the best, Dublin suburb for many reasons. On the one hand, it is bordered by the sea promenade at Dublin Bay and the other side of Clontarf has one of Dublin's largest park, Saint Anne's Park.. Winter and summer, the promenade makes a lovely walk with plenty of watering holes and restaurants along the way. About three kilometres... More

Clontarf is beautiful all year round and has great spots to eat, swim, surf, sit and just admire the view. 15 minutes from town on the 130 bus- definitely worth a trip

About 15 min ride on the bus from Dublin (cost 2.40 euro each way). Nice green land leading around the waterfront. Nice place to relax, have a picnic in sight of the ocean. The ocean breeze is a bit fresh, but the scenery is fantastic!

Clontarf is just a short Dart (local train service ) or a bus or cab ride from the centre of Dublin. What a beautiful scenic place to spend an afternoon. There is a 3 kilometre linear park which borders Clontarf with the sea. Fresh air in a city. That's a treat right there. And so many restaurants and shops dotted... More
