Saint Anne's Park
The park, second largest municipal park in Dublin, is part of a former 202 hectares estate assembled by members of the Guinness family. Features include an artificial pond and a number of follies, a fine collection of trees, a playground, parklands walks and recreational facilities including golf.
Lovely walks, playgrounds, wide open spaces; close to the sea and Bull Island (nature reserve). Excellent history of the park and there are rose gardens and stables cafes for a rest.

“Since 1180 the St. Lawrence family have been the Lords of Howth. Howth Castle has stood on its present site for over seven hundred years, the original one, a timber structure, having been sited on Tower Hill, overlooking Balscadden Bay. The current building is not the original castle, which was on the high slopes by the village and the sea. The great English architect Sir Edwin Lutyens restyled a 14th-century castle built here, overlooking Ireland's Eye and the north Dublin coastline.”
“Wonderful beach setting with promenade. Walk or DART train to Howth fishing village and mountains for hiking”
