The Forty Foot in Sandycove is a lovely spot to bath and cool down on a warm summers day.
Dart to Sandycove or walk 15 mins. Small village with nice coffee shops, Small collection of boutiques for women's clothing, prices moderate. Nice village to potter around, have lunch in Cavistons or Juggy Wells. Short walk to sea and James Joyce's tower, 40 foot bathing area. Buckley's auction…
This is a favourite for young and old to visit to dip into the sea. If you don't want to go in just visit and watch those with confirmed sea legs. A great spot to see how many locals like to enjoy their morning or weekend.
