Killiney Hill Park, a walk with a view [Part 1]
The fair weather we were blessed with last Saturday was simply perfect for a walk through Killiney Hill Park. Although it wasn’t windy, it was very clear (not haziness or thick fog at all) and views over Dublin Bay and Bray Head were just a feast for the eyes.
After days of heavy rain, there were puddles and mud puddles everywhere. Because some had frozen over and because I kept gazing at the clear blue sky or at the tremendous sea view instead of watching where I was putting my feet, several times I was about to slide down. The fact that I was wearing not suitable shoes (please, don’t ask) didn’t help either.
Following a path which winds among blocks of stones – the quarry is popular all year round with rock climbers – and going up a quite steep staircase, I managed to reach the top of the hill and its observation deck.
Turning my back to Dublin Bay
this is what came into view! Can you think of a more rewarding view?
