I live on the outskirts of Dublin's fair city in a wonderful location. On my walk to the beach, I pass the homes of the rich and famous ie. Bono, the Edge, and Enya's castle! I have often watched the dolphins playing in the ocean! I love to walk back along the coast which has been compared to The Amalfi Coast of Italy, past more famous homes to the heritage village of Dalkey, with its quaint shops, pubs and restaurants.
Other times I go uphill to the top of killiney hill where there are breath-taking views in all directions. The city is only 30 mins away. I usually take the little electric train, known as The Dart, which follows the coast.
Dublin is an easy city to get around. The list is endless of things to see and do there! However if the mountains and lakes are your thing, they are within easy reach of my home. Just a few mins down the motorway and you are in the Wicklow mountains, which is a walkers paradise and steeped in history.
