Seafront Cycle and Picturesque St. Anne’s Park
For a fantastic look at Clontarf seafront along Dublin Bay and a flat easy cycle, we recommend this self-guided tour for you. The Irish Centre for Cycling will drop you at the beginning of the off road cycleway.
From here, cycle along this cycleway 4km to one of Dublin’s treasures, St. Anne’s Park. The park, formerly owned by the Guinness family and sold to Dublin Corporation in 1936, is famed for its Rose Gardens which are impeccably kept and cultivated. Even if the roses are not in bloom, visiting the park is an unexpected pleasure. Follies abound - recreated classical monuments or artificial ruins to please the eye. Even the boathouse next to the lake is based on a temple excavated in Pompeii. The Chestnut pathway which runs parallel to the Coast Road is a firm favourite for cyclists and in 1988 the Millennium Arboretum was created, celebrating 1,000 years of Dublin by planting 1,000 different trees.
There is a charming playground with lots of carved wood substituting for plastic, a family-friendly picnic area is nearby and the kids can roam the sheer endless grounds.
The Red Stables can be found near the playground. With a café and a gallery this art centre is definitely worth a visit, especially on weekends when there can be any number of things going on here including a Farmers Market, with fresh bread, flowers and artisan products for sale.
Back on your bicycle, it is only a short spin to Bull Island bird sanctuary across the famous Dollymount wooden bridge to the strand. After a short stop, just another short spin along the seafront to Clontarf Dart station where you can travel on the Dart back to our Malahide Cycle Centre.
