Enjoy a day out at Brittas Bay; as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the proud owner of numerous Blue Flag awards, this pretty, unspoilt beach and its surrounding coastline offer beautiful landscapes and 5km of sand dunes to explore, not to mention perfect conditions for sailing, walking and sunbathing! Wicklow Gaol, one of the most haunted places in Ireland, and Powerscourt House and Gardens are only a short drive away. Try sailing, a boat trip from Wicklow Harbour along the east coast, or take a day trip into vibrant Dublin and visit the Guinness Storehouse and Gravity Bar, the highest bar in Ireland, or Dublin Castle. A perfect base for enjoying the Irish coast.
