I envy the people lucky enough to live near here and have this amazing beach on their doorstep. You can walk along the shore for miles and the views on a clear day are spectacular. Well worth a visit.

Wow! What a beautiful beach! My two sons loved exploring and running along this beach. So safe and clean. The views unbelievable and the sea air tired my sons out!

What can you say about portmarnock beach, but when the weather is good it beats Spain and Portugal any time. And today was one of those days. Blue skies, sunshine and just fantastic.

Easy to get to, and a fun place to get a good look at the coast of Ireland. The tide was out, so we were able to walk out over a half of a mile. Very windy, but hey its Ireland.

Favourite beach in Dublin. This is an amazing beach to visit. Fantastic sand dunes. It's a fav from my childhood. Definitely worth a visit at any time of the year.

High tide or low tide, this stretch of beach is really beautiful. Not crowded at all, lots of room to walk your dogs or just stroll.

A beautiful sandy beach that goes from Malahide to past Portmarnock. Very clean and well looked after. Great for kids and stunning views on a good day. Easy access from main road.

The weather made the day I know but the beach is long and beautiful with a lovely path walk along the top. Nice clean toilets near the lighthouse. Lovely area to visit in Dublin.
