Skerries Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Skerries is a nice suprise when you see some of the ham-fisted urban planning that goes on in the Dublin Commuter Belt. it still feels like a victorian fishing village and its on the train to Dublin. There are nice walks around the coast and the architecture is a good blend of Georgian to Edwardian.

There are plenty of pubs to tickle your fancy but 'Stoop Your Head' (Stoops) on the Harbour is a good gastro-pub. There's a nice wine shop, Red Island Wines, near the Super-Valu on Church Street with an excellent selection of vino. The parachute cafe has a lovely vibe and a play area for kids.

The only bad thing in Skerries is the selection of chip-shops. No only do they sell truly dreadful muck passing as food but they should have guns and masks on given the prices they charge.
