Bird Watching Dublin

Rush is a busy town in North County Dublin. There are two bird watching locations, Rush Harbour and the beach. The south beach at rush is accessed on the opposite side of the town to the harbour. There is a large carpark that gives access to a long sandy beach to your right, and a rocky shoreline to your left.

The rocky shoreline is exposed at low tide and attracts a wide range of birds. There is a steep embankment along this part of the beach where you can see finches and chats. When the tide is out you can see a wide variety of gulls and waders. If you are driving through Rush from the Dublin direction, turn right onto Convent lane just past the turn for Skerries. The beach is at the end of the lane. Sat-Nav co-ordinates are 53.518588, -6.091814775
