Tired of Dublin or just want a break to experience the sea side? Jump on the commuter train to Skerries - a 40 minute ride to experience quaint shops, a 14-foot tide swing and and incredible view of offshore islands from a beautiful beach. Friendly people, 2 windmills (4 sails and 5 sails) and a castle to boot. The town is walking distance from the station through the neighborhood but it is recommended to take the bus back to the station as you will be exhausted from exploring ( 2 Euros). We had a great lunch at Seasons Restaurant. Make sure to read the poetry on the walls upstairs.
