City Guide to Sutton

Dublin is on many people’s lists of places they have to visit but there’s more to the area than the history, bars and shops of its city centre. Just a little way northeast of the city lies the picturesque coastal town of Sutton. Perched on the beautiful Dublin Bay, Sutton has the small town Irish charm that will really help you enjoy a relaxing break.

Natural Beauty

Boasting a rugged coastline and wonderful beaches, you feel a million miles away from Dublin, even if in reality it is within easy striking distance. In the heart of scenic splendour you can discover world renowned golf courses, historic castles and wildfowl reserves, but there are also the warm welcome of local bars and restaurants, centred around the Sutton Cross area of town, to return home to.

Coastal Sutton

Sutton is a scenic residential suburb at the base of the Howth Peninsula surrounded by many beaches. The Burrow Beach, to the north of the town, boasts fine views of Ireland's Eye and, on a clear day, of Lambay Island further up the coast.

Golf in Sutton

Sutton is a golf lover’s destination: it has its very own course overlooking the beautiful Dublin Bay, and, for a real touch of sporting glamour, the Portmarnock Golf Course course is just north of the town.

Sutton Cross

Sutton Cross is where most of the bars, shops and restaurants are, and local seafood is a real speciality here. There are plenty of traditional Irish pubs, away from the busy city centre streets, where you can relax and enjoy a quiet drink.

Staying in Sutton

You’ll find a number of hotels that will fit any budget – and even a refurbished Martello Tower for those who want accommodation with a difference. These towers were built by the British army along Ireland’s eastern coast, concentrated mainly around Dublin Bay, as defensive forts in the 19th century.

Nature in Sutton

Nature lovers will be attracted to the wildfowl reserve that is located just north of the town in the Baldoyle Estuary. This wetland area provides a natural habitat for a huge variety of seabirds and other flora and fauna.

Sutton Festivals

As well as the countless attractions in the city centre, lovers of culture should note that the Howth Midsummer Arts and Literature Festival takes place just down the coastal road at the start of June. And the end of April welcomes one of Ireland’s biggest food festivals, the Dublin Bay Prawn Festival, and is a gastronomical delight.

How to Get to Dublin from Sutton

Sutton is well served with transport links and there’s a variety of ways to get to Dublin city centre and beyond. You can take the DART, the local suburban rail system, from Sutton Cross station as well as local bus services.

So if it’s the museums and galleries of the Irish capital that take your fancy - or the panoramic views of the city from the top of the Guiness Storehouse are more your style, Dublin has something for everyone. And the town of Sutton is perfectly located for you to take advantage of everything this famous city has to offer.
