The best Binnion in Ireland?
by Colin Murphy  4 May 2015
A very pleasant 10-minute stroll from the Killiney Hill car park along pathways that weave through mature woodlands, takes you to the high point of the hill, marked by a large obelisk and a couple of other odd follies - but on a fine day the views are quite spectacular, with Dublin Bay curving round to the south, presenting an aspect of the Dublin/Wicklow mountains with Killiney strand stretching out below, and this time of year the hillside is covered with masses of yellow furze. It's easy to understand why many of the roads around Killiney/Dalkey have Italian names like Sorrento and Vico, because the view is very reminiscent of the Bay of Naples, although I'd argue even better! Luckily, the Sugar Loaf, unlike Vesuvius, is extinct. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1346/comment/17968/
