We were blessed with another glorious sunny day so we decided to take on this beautiful coastal walk that boasts panoramic coastal views. We parked on the Vico road and started the walk by taking on Dalkey hill. At the summit we marvelled at the incredible views of Dublin city all the way to Howth head. We then followed the tree lined path towards the summit of Killiney hill where we were treated to a stunning panorama of the Wicklow mountains, the glistening water at the expansive Killiney beach and Martello tower sitting proudly on Dalkey island. Although this walk is relatively short, it’s a decent workout. It’s an up and down walk throughout.
