Great South Wall Walk

I work near Donnybrook and from our office cafeteria, one can see all the way to Lighthouse on the Great South Wall. But I suppose its not one of the Dublin destinations which probably even Dubliner’s might be fond of.

So, a fews week back, we decided to go for a walk all the way to Great South Wall from our office. Now, only the Great South Wall itself is like 3 km or so, (ok, i justed calculated on Google maps, it was aprrox. 8 km walk in total) and cold windy weather.

Until Sandymount strand n nature reserve, it was going good,

but then all those Dublin backyard factories/sewage plant, kinda kills the whole setting. The whole industrial setting and the natural setting together might not be for everyone’s taste :)

I still enjoyed the walk itself on the South Wall into the sea, ships coming in, ocean waves, the lighthouse (it was my first time to a lighthouse).

From South Wall: Dublin n Poolbeg Station. The evening sunset made it much more appealing, was quite beautiful.

ah, and cracks appearing on south wall and the fillings:

If got sometime extra time in your hand, I can recommend the walk and is worth it. There is neat description of car/walk to South Wall here “Fat Steve Walks“. One can also take Dublin Bus No. 3 to the Poolbeg station and then walk to the south wall, if you don’t wanna walk all the way from Sandymount. Pick a nice day during late afternoon and enjoy the Dublin Bay views.
