Sandymount Strand (Irish: Dumhach Thrá) is a large strand on the east coast of Ireland, adjacent to the village and suburb of Sandymount in Dublin. It is part of South Bull - a major component of the south side of Dublin Bay, and part of the Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve. South Bull is a mirror to the North Bull sandbank, which grew into North Bull Island.Put Sandymount Strand at the forefront of your travel plans using our Dublin trip planner.
Sandymount Strand is a popular place for locals to take a walk. People, and in the past - there is no longer public vehicular access - cars, have been occasionally trapped by the incoming tide. A large inlet of water that remains even at low tide is known locally as "Cockle Lake".

Fantastic when the sun shines in Ireland. Loads of people walking their dogs on Sandymount Strand. Recommended. more »
Stunning day at the sandy mount beach, even the wind couldn't keep us away! The tide was out allowing at least a 2km walk out towards the sea. The beach looks short on Google maps, but when the tide is out its a stunning walk.
Not really fresh air in. Overall is pleasant place .
