Birding Great South Wall

The Great South Wall is a popular walk in Dublin. It is actually the pier wall that out to the Poolbeg Lighthouse in Dublin. There are wonderful views of Dublin City, Bull Island and the Dublin and Wicklow mountains.

Approximately 4 Kilometres long, the Great South Wall is a good place to view terns in Summer. Black Guillemots regularly sit along the wall and used to walkers. In winter,  it is not unusual to see Red Throated Divers or Great Northern Divers here. You can also see Kittiwakes, Teal, Wigeon and a variety of smaller birds.
