This route starts from Skerries and goes to Balbriggan staying as near to the waterline as possible. However this wasn't entirely possible because of lack of access combined with tidal state which was about 2 to 3 hours after high tide. Parts of the walk are fairly natural but other parts had significant rubbish etc. The walk is very varied with suburban sections at both ends, road, rock, beaches, cliffs and headlands in between. On the occasion we were there the weather steadily improved and as we reached Balbriggan we could see the Cooleys and the Mournes to the north. This walk is a linear walk. One way of coping with this is to use the bus service (33) or do as we did using the train. The train isn't so frequent on Sundays however only takes 6 minutes.
Suggestions: do this walk at low tide, expect improvements on the route we took, seek local knowledge.
