Things To Do

Feel the sand between your toes on long sandy beaches. Take a bracing walk on Red Island Scenic Park with views of the offshore islands and the Mountains of Mourne to the North. The frequent sight of the local colony of grey seals bobbing in the water off the head is always a pleasant surprise.

The main attractions for most visitors are the famous Skerries Mills, an award-winning project, which is extremely proud of it's restored (and working) windmills with guided tours, craft shop and tearoom. The mills are also host to both regular local art exhibitions and a weekly farmers market which offers local fresh produce, and is well worth a visit - if only to get a taste of some of the delicious samples on offer!!!

Ardgillan castle offers stunning coastal views, fabulous gardens and an adventure playground. An amusement arcade opens year round and a mini funfair in the summer months offer further family diversions.

For Sports enthusiasts... there is a championship golf course, a sailing club which host both national and world sailing events and, every year, the famous TT motorbike road races come to Skerries and are attended by thousands.

Night clubs and comedy nights, music sessions and a good selection of pubs - both trendy and traditional offer a plenty of choice for evening entertainment... And of course, the smells, sounds, and sight of the sea is never ever too far away.
