The Biodiversity Village is a exciting place to explore the wildlife of Dublin Bay with some very friendly Experts! Experience highly recommended for the family!
So bring your picnic blanket, swimming trunks and suntan lotion (and maybe an umbrella just in case) and come down to the beach!

Are you ready to handle it?
Wind conditions at Dollymount are generally very good, the beach is considered to be one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world! And is on the doorstep of Dublin’s city centre.
It is a magical spot with the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserve at Bull Island and the occasional flaming sunset colors. Shallow waters and 4 km of sandy beaches makes this spot a heaven for kitesurfers. Thanks to the local authorities and the action of IKSA, KItesurfing has been growing there in a very sustainable way and it is with great pride that we try to keep it like that! When the wind dies, Bull Island is the perfect heaven for Stand-up Paddle boarders, cruise around the island, surf the Ferry Wave or Explore the majestic Ireland ‘s Eye!
Keep safe and respect your environment! Please leave no trace.
Have you ever dreamt of riding the oceans, or flying like a bird? Have you ever thought Dublin Bay could be the perfect place for cruising on a Paddle board with your mates? Come and try the most exciting but surely the most accessible extremes sports ever, in Dublin!!
