An easy out and back, flat walk offering expansive views of Dublin Bay and the Dublin Mountains, this walk is perfect for blowing off some cobwebs on a Sunday morning. The route is a popular one and it is very convenient and rewarding. The unavoidable and less than scenic water treatment plant does take from the walk’s beauty, however.
