We travel up and down to Dublin a lot and for the longest time we kept passing the sign for the Rock of Dunamase and saying “we really have to check that out one day”! Fortunately, we eventually did get around to checking it out because this is a remarkable site and one of my favourite places to visit now.

After a very lazy Christmas Day, I was definitely in need of a good stretch of the legs on St. Stephen’s Day. I managed to convince my family to get up early too and join me for out to trip out to Killiney for some fresh air!
I sold it as a short walk up Killiney hill but in the end we did manage to add on a few extra kilometres. This really is a very scenic part of Dublin with stunning coastal views, so if you make the trip out it’s well worth exploring Killiney and Dalkey a little. Read More
