    The Harbour

    by adeleog Written Jan 21, 2005

    If its a sunny day - head down to the harbour. There is a working fishing fleet and if they have just arrived back in you will see a lot of seals following them into the harbour.

    The Stoop Your Head pub has fantastic seafood and a very relaxed atmosphere. Take your drink and sit outside watching the world go by. If the tide is out - you can even take your drinks down to the beach.

    Joe Mays is another great pub. You are guaranteed to find someone to chat to!!

    Martello Tower

    by Nobbe Updated Jul 24, 2003

    There are two Martello Towers built during the Napoleonic period, one sited on one of the Islands in the bay, the other on Red Island, an area of great beauty and popularity, now joined to the mainland. From the area around the tower you can have wonderful walks and sea views.

    Ardgillan Castle

    by Nobbe Updated Jul 24, 2003

    Not far from Skerries you can find Ardgillan Castle. Although referred to as a Castle, the residence at Ardgillan is a large country-style house with castellated embellishments. Originally named "Prospect", the central section was built in 1738 by Robert Taylor, with the west and east wings added in the late 1700's.

    Initially the site was heavily wooded, the name Ardgillan being derived from the Irish "Ard Choill" meaning High Wood. It was cleared by out-of-service soldiers and itinerant workers in return for one penny a day, sleeping accommodation and one meal.

    Fondest memory: The harbour is a major landing port for Dublin bay prawns and in season is a hive of activity. A large colony of grey seals resides in and around the harbour, also the location of the sailing club and several of the town's restaurants and pubs.

    The Beach

    by Nobbe Updated Jul 24, 2003

    Favorite thing: Skerries has a long sandy beach that is good for the whole family. These sandy beaches can be found just 20km north of Dublin airport.
