1. Howth sunset Dublin Ireland
Howth is a fishing village located approximately 30 minutes from Dublin’s City Centre. It is the perfect location to watch the sky change from day to night. In fact, it is the only place in Dublin where you can see the sunset directly on the waterfront. Head towards Howth’s light house for this picture perfect spot. It is an experience you won’t forget.
2. Dun Laoghaire Pier sunset Dublin Ireland
This seaside town is the perfect place to relax and watch the sunset. Buy yourself an ice cream and go for walk down the pier. On a sunny day, you’re sure to see the sky light up with breathtaking colours. Dun Laoghaire is the perfect location for a romantic date by the sea, with loads of restaurants nearby.
3. Bray Head sunset Dublin Ireland
Okay, so the next two locations are slightly cheating cause technically they are located in County Wicklow, not Dublin, however, with easy access from the city centre via the Dart, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy these spectacular views. You could even make a day out of it and do the Bray to Greystones walk, just make sure you make it back in time for sunset.
4. Bray Seafront sunset Dublin Ireland
Sometimes it is important to look in the opposite direction to where the sun is setting. Walking along Bray’s seafront is such a relaxing experience, especially when you’re faced with such beautiful colours. There is something special about this place and it is defiantly worth a visit.
5. The Hell Fire Club sunset Dublin Ireland
If you like nature, the great outdoors and breathtaking views, then the hellfire club is the place for you. It is the perfect place for a picnic as you watch the sun light up Dublin City. The Hell Fire Club is located on the top of Montpellier hill, a 30-minute drive from the city centre. Be sure to bring your camera to capture spectacular views of the city from the mountain top.
6. Ticknock sunset Dublin Ireland
Much like the Hell Fire Club, Ticknock is another mountainous hike for those who love the great outdoors. Head straight for the ruins of the ‘fairy castle’ to witness a beautiful sunset along the hillside. Don’t forget to wrap up warm though, it can get chilly once the sun goes in.
