Killiney Hill Walk

1 miles (1 km)

This walk climbs to Killiney Hill where you can enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding area. From the 153 metre high point you can see Dublinto the northwest, theIrish Seaand the mountains ofWales,theWicklow Mountains and Bray Head.
You can start the walk from the Killiney Hill car park, just to the north of the hill. From here you can pick up a circular trail running up to the wonderful viewpoint. Here you will find an obelisk which bears the inscription:'Last year being hard with the poor, walks about these hills and this were erected by John Mapas, June 1742.' There was originally a railway station located between Dalkey and Killiney on this scenic section of theDublin–Rosslare railway lineknown as Obelisk Hill.
To continue your walking in the area head to the nearby Dalkey Hill where there are more fine views to enjoy. There's also some fine coastal walking to try at the Howth Cliff Walk or the Malahide to Portmarnock Coastal Walk. For a more challenging walk around the Howth peninsula try the Purple Route (Bog of Frogs) which climbs to the hills above the coast. From here there's wonderful views over Portmarnock,Sutton,Bull Islandand most ofDublin Bay. You could also head into Dublin and visit Tymon Park. There's a number of nice waymarked woodland trails and waterside paths along the River Poddle here.
