This swimming spot is popular with year round swimmers as well as being really busy in summer months. The seadbed is sandy and there is not too much wildlife for anyone who is nervous in the sea. Best to swim close to high tide as...More

We walked along the coast and it was low tide and we even got down the rocks and picked stones and shells. It is good to go when the weather is good.

Well served by public transport (especially Dart), this is an ideal spot for a swim when the tide is in and the weather is fine. Also accessible by car, subject to obtaining a parking space nearby which is usually possible. On a good day all...More

We visited Greystones to fill a bit of time waiting to travel to Dublin airport. We're glad we discovered it. It's the next resort down from Bray and the contrast between the two towns is very obvious. Bray was a bit like Weston Super Mare...More

Rather exposed, not too clean, water doesn't really get deep, probably refreshing as other writers put it, but still not good enough. Nice view from here though, just sitting on a nice stretch between Baldoyle and Sutton. If I as personally going to choose a...More
