7 Stunning Autumnal Walks To Try Around Dublin This Weekend
Make the most of the gorgeous scenery at this time of year
You only have to look around you at the moment to see just how stunning Dublin is looking as we move fully into Autumn.
The weather might be getting colder but the scenery more than makes up for it.
We are absolutely blessed that we have the seaside, numerous parks and mountains on our doorstep so we thought we'd pick out 7 of the very best so that you can go out and enjoy them this weekend!
Wrap up warm and remember that going for a big walk means you can happily eat loads of fatty food and drink a load of pints afterwards to celebrate!
1. Bushy Park
Walking through the huge trees and watching the leaves fall as they slowly turn brown is a magical experience. Do the full loop and you'll see thick trees, the river, swans, people playing football and kids skateboarding.
One of Dublin's great parks.
2. Tibradden Mountain Trail
This is that nice mix of being doable when slightly hungover, having planned nothing AND rewarding with a sense of having actually done something with your weekend.
3. Cliff Walk Howth Head
We might even go as far as saying this is the best walk in the whole county.
On a good day you'll see everything around the bay as well as down into the village of Howth. It's a 6km walk that raises up to 130m so it's a bit challenging, but the good news is that at the end of it you'll be able to enjoy the magic of Howth village and some epic seafood.
4. The Dodder Walk
Weeping willows, weirs and wildlife, the Dodder has it all. The beauty of this walk is that you can do it as a whole or just dip in and out of the various bits as you see fit.
Gorgeous scenery and wildlife at every stage.
5. St Anne'e Park
Less than 15 minutes from the city centre, this is a perfect place to watch the seasons changing right in front of you.
Great for dogs owners and lots of places to eat after the walk down on the seaside.
6. Ardgillan Castle
As well as the castle, the grounds feature a walled rose garden. Looks especially well at this time of year.
7. Bray to Greystones cliff walk
The fantastic scenery here on one side and the raging sea on the other – an absolute classic, with the advantage of being able to get the train back, so you can keep walking for longer without having to turn around.
