One of the most beautiful parks in Ireland. Beautiful views of Killiney Bay which resemble the bay of Naples.

Killiney hill is a wonderful place to go for a walk. Many people are about, the view is absolutely spectacular, a nice coffee shop at the bottom.

“Exercise in Beautiful Surroundings”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

If you like aerobic exercise in beautiful surroundings, go for a good walk on Killiney Hill. Particularly good during weekdays, as there are fewer people but great at any time. This was originally called Victoria Hill - so called to mark the visit of Queen Victoria to the area in the mid 19th century. The view from the top gives a 360 degree aspect over Counties Wicklow and Dublin, stretching from the Wicklow Mountains, with Dublin suburbs and the Dublin Mountains. The top of the hill is graced by an Obelisk, visible for miles around, built in the 19th Century. Killiney Village is close to the entrance gates and it is accessible by number 59 bus. The newly opened tea rooms close to the entrance gate provide a welcome snack or light lunch.
