Not to mention the cafe where the dogs have their own bowls and hitching stations outside, all within view of their human caregivers within. I think this might be the number one place in Ireland to go hiking with your dog. The people on the...More

Nice walk from the castle up to Killiney Hill. We were lucky that the obelisk was open providing an even better view of the coast and the mountains.

We walked up the hill and through the park starting from Dalkey, it's a bit of a climb, but nothing extraordinarily difficult. The park is nice, shady, and cool, as it should be, and the views from the top of the hill are just lovely....More

In any weather, the views around this hill are magical. It's a nice trek for those looking to get exercise, but you don't have to work so hard to get a good view - on either side of the hill. Wonderful views of Dublin Bay...More
