Discover the beach

Explore the beach just a few minutes stroll from the Hotel, the pretty Sandymount Strand which has been made famous by appearing in James Joyce's work, Ulysses. Simply take the Pedestrian Crossing on Merrion Road and walk down Sandymount Avenue. In Irish, Sandymount Strand is called Dumhach Thrá - and is adjacent to the village and suburb of Sandymount. The Strand is part of the South Bull, (a mirror to the North Bull sandbank, which grew into North Bull Island) and is major component of the south side of Dublin Bay, part of the Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve. Sandymount Strand is a popular place for locals to take a walk, relax, go for a jog or push a pram. Look out for the Martello Tower, about half way along the Strand, part of a system of defences built to warn of an invasion by Napoleon. Also look out for the landmark red and white chimneys of ESB's Poolbeg Generating Station which provide a striking landmark on Dublin's skyline and are beloved by locals.

Play time

Herbert Park is a wonderful area in Ballsbridge which has a terrific children's play park, duck pond along with walking/jogging trail and is only 5 minutes from the Hotel. 

Award-winning and educational

Dublin Zoo is much more than a fun-filled, stimulating day out for all the family... it’s a place to learn about wild animals, especially those which are endangered. The Zoo is a registered charity – your visit will help maintain Dublin Zoo to a high standard, improve the Zoo and contribute to conservation programmes. Located in the Phoenix Park in the heart of Dublin city, Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s most popular family attraction, and welcomed over one million visitors last year. Its 28 hectare park in the heart of Dublin is home to some 400 animals in safe environment where education and conservation combine for an exciting and unforgettable experience!
