Self Catering Holidays in Co. Dublin

button_continue.png

County Dublin is situated on Ireland’s east coast bordered by counties Meath, Kildare and Wicklow. Trident Holiday Homes offers self catering holiday homes in Swords, Co. Dublin on the outskirts of the city just minutes from Dublin Airport.

Co. Dublin is of course home to Ireland's capital city – Dublin which is one of Europe’s oldest cities.  Dubliners can enjoy the best of both worlds with the city being situated right on the coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey and surrounded by the majestic Dublin Mountains.  

The comparatively short stretch of coastline which Co. Dublin occupies has an usually high number of sandy beaches. Guests at our self catering holiday homes in Co. Dublin can choose from Balcarrick Beach in Donnabate and Skerries South Beach to the north of the county to Seapoint Beach in Dun Laoghaire and Killiney Beach to the South with Dollymount Strand and Sandymount Strand both within the city limits. Kite surfing is a sport which is rapidly growing in popularity in Ireland and many of these beaches are extremely popular with kite surfers. In fact there are a number of kite surfing schools on this part of the coast including Pure Magic Kite Surfing Centre and Kiteessence Kitesurfing School.

Although Dublin City has a huge number of visitor attractions and historical buildings, there are also a number of sites on the outskirts and in Dublin County at large which should not be missed. The best known of these include;

  • Ardgillan Castle

  • Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre

  • Malahide Castle

  • The James Joyce Tower, Sandycove

  • The Casino, Marino

One of Co. Dublin’s greatest amenities are the Dublin Mountains which offer some spectacular cycle ways and marked trails some suitable for a light stroll, others better suited to hiking. These trails are extremely well maintained by the Dublin Mountains Partnership and can be easily accessed from a number of car parks.  

Our self catering accommodation in Co. Dublin is the perfect base for those who wish to explore the many attractions of Co. Dublin while still having easy access to the city.
