Skerries South Beach

The town of Skerries in North County Dublin is a popular destination for Dubliners. In addition to the Harbour, there is a long sandy beach to the south of the town. There are several islands just offshore that hold large numbers of seabirds.  At low tide the water retreats a considerable distance and and the beach is a roosting area for gulls, waders and terns, depending on the season.

You can walk along the road at the back of the beach. There is a narrow strip of dunes beside the road. You can also walk along the beach and walk out a considerable distance at low tide. There are public toilets on the road that runs at the back of the beach.

You can visit the beach and the harbour area in one visit and there is ample parking available near the harbour and also right along the road at the back of the beach.
