About Adventure in Dublin

Sandwiched between the sea and the Dublin mountains, Dublin has lots to offer active visitors. Whether you're renting a Dublin Bike and cycling along the coast, or filling your backpack with snacks for a day of hiking in the mountains, you'll be kept moving with these suggestions.

Hiking

Ranging in length from less than an hour to three hours or longer, the Dublin Mountains offer hikes only a short bus ride from the city centre.

Walking Routes

One of the best walking routes involves a quick train ride up to Howth peninsula where you can walk along the cliffs, checking out the view of Dublin city.

Running

Dubliners run throughout the city centre, especially preferring the Phoenix Park for longer runs. Or try running along the northern coast jogging and cycling path, which stretches up to seven miles north of the city centre.

Swimming

Surrounded by sea, you don't have to go very far to find water. Try Dollymount Strand on the north side, or the 40 Foot on the south side. But you might want to pack a wet suit, the water rarely gets very warm! Try the Markievicz Leisure Centre or Sportsco if you prefer your swimming indoors.

Gyms

There are gyms sprinkled throughout the city centre. Try the YMCA on Aungier Street or Crunch Fitness on Aston Quay.

Biking

The Dublin Bike scheme is similar to Paris's Velib system. Rent the bikes at locations around the city and return them wherever you end up.

Yoga

Yoga Dublin Studios on Dartmouth Street near the canal offers centrally located pilates, yoga and even prenatal yoga.

Parks

Dublin's most famous park might be St. Stephen's Green, set at the top of Grafton Street right in the heart of the city centre, but the Iveagh Gardens are quieter and set just around the corner. Also try Herbert Park in Ballsbridge, where there are astro turf tennis courts you can book as well.
