Bird Watching Dublin

Loughshinny is a small fishing harbour located between Rush and Skerries in North Dublin. It is a popular spot to go bird watching as there is access to to the beach and cliffs (at low tide) to spot Fulmar. There is also a cliff walk where you can see songbirds, chats and finches as well as the occasional Buzzard and Kestrel.

From the car park at the beach, walk out along the beach at low tide to see Fulmars on the cliff face. At the end of the beach there are steps that take you to the top of the headland. Follow the path which takes you through hedgerows and grasslands, and also gives you great views of the shoreline. Search Google Maps for Loughshinny Beach. There is a car park right at the beach.
