Discover the Beach
The picturesque Sandymount Strand, which has been made famous by appearing in James Joyce's work, Ulysses, is quick stroll from the hotel's doorstep.
Simply take the pedestrian crossing on Merrion Road and walk down Sandymount Avenue. The Concierge Team would be happy to assist with directing you or organising transportation for your family.
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 enjoy some ice cream. Look out for the Martello Tower which is half way along the strand, and is 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.Learn More
