Ardgillan park is unique among Dublin’s regional parks for the magnificent views it enjoys of the coastline. A panorama, taking in Rockabill Lighthouse, Colt Church, Shenick, and Lambay Islands maybe seen, including Sliabh Foy, the highest of the Cooley Mountains, and of course the Mourne Mountains can be seen sweeping down to the sea.
There was a wonderful planting of wildflowers which was one of the highlights of the trip. We headed over to Skerries for a short visit as the cold and wind was not so conducive to taking photographs but despite that, we all enjoyed the outing.
