The village of Portmarnock is on the DART line from the city centre, just north of Howth. The strand affords views of Howth Head and the little offshore island called Ireland's Eye. Summer will find Portmarnock beach packed with locals pretending they are in a much warmer climate and even swimming in what has to be consistently cold water. This is a great place for a good outdoor session, so take a frisbee or football with you. On breezy days, Portmarnock is a fine spot for a long bracing walk.
