About Skerries

The town of Skerries, just 20km North of Dublin Airport, with its tree lined streets and colourful display of flowers give Skerries a spacious and tranquil atmosphere ideal for the holidaymaker.

Skerries is a particularly scenic coastal town which is renowned for its bathing, pleasant walks and friendly atmosphere, offshore islands with an abundance of wildlife and a harbour where the famous Skerries seals are often seen to relax. A large colony of grey seals resides in and around the harbour, also the location of the sailing club and several of the town's restaurants and pubs.

Skerries harbour is a major landing port for Dublin bay prawns and in season is a hive of activity.

Skerries has a long sandy beach, ideal for children and safe bathing, patrolled by lifeguards during the summer for that extra peace of mind. A grass promenade runs the length of this beach, joining it to Red Island Scenic Park, with its fine views and free children's playground.
