Leader’s Note: This is always a super ramble with stunning views of Wicklow and Howth in fine weather once we get on to Bull Wall. We will walk from Clontarf seafront car park along the promenade that was reclaimed from the sea in the 1920s. The promenade is always busy with joggers, runners, dog walking and cycling. We will pass the old Clontarf baths (and newly opened restaurant), continue along the promenade and walk over the wooden bridge built in 1819 and down Bull Wall as far as the sea to Our Lady, Star of the Sea statue. Then onto Dollymount beach, causeway road to St Anne’s Park to the Tree of Life. We’ll walk through the park and back to the seafront and return to the car park.
Note: There can be a chilly breeze on this walk, please make sure that you have plenty of layers, gloves, hat and scarf.
