Groupon’s Guide To Co. Dublin
Set in the north-east of Ireland and offering direct access to the Irish Sea, County Dublin is the most populated county of Ireland, mostly due to the capital city of Dublin.
Outside the hustle and bustle of Dublin city, the county stands out as a peaceful area, with large stretches of green land, natural wonders, steep cliffs and overwhelming views of the sea. The county is also steeped in history, being the site of many historical events and locations. Balbriggan offers the opportunity to experience horse racing, while in the town of Skerries, found at a short distance down the coastline, guests may visit the Skerries Mills where they can try their skills at grinding or observe the waterwheel at work. Given the spectacular scenery of the region, visitors may also take advantage of walking routes such as ‘The Nuns Walk’, ‘Slí na Sláinte’ (The path to health) or the Ward River Walk.
