As a toddler, this is the place that Julia was brought for her first hill walk – Killiney Hill on the outskirts of Dublin.
This is a lovely, short walk that takes you up Killiney Hill, offering amazing views out across Dublin to the north and, on a clear day, the Wicklow Mountains to the south.
At the top of the hill you’ll find the Obelisk, a magnificent cone-shaped monument. It is one of Killiney Hill’s key sites and dates all the way back to 1742.
Our walk just takes you up Killiney Hill – but there are also well marked paths and routes to follow that also take in Dalkey Hill too.
