1. Re: easter in skerries

Vist Ardgillen Castle and the Skerries Mills. Skerries also has some lovely restaurants and pubs - Nealons pub is a favourite of mine and the Stoop Your Head in the harbour is nice, particularly for a Sunday afternoon drink. North County Dublin has some lovely coastline and beaches. I don't suggest a dip in the sea at that time of year but the beaches are lovely to walk on. There are beaches in Skerries but you can also visit the nearby coastal small towns/villages of Rush, Donabate and Portrane(both villages are a short trip away on the train line from Skerries towards the centre of Dublin, keeping in mind that the beaches are a bit of a walk or bus ride from the train stations). Donabate also has Newbridge House and Demesne, a lovely 18th century manor house set on 350 acres of parkland and open to the public. The area around Skerries, Rush, Lusk and Donabate is effectively Dublin's market garden and with lots of land given over to growing vegetables it still has quite a rural feel. One train stop further south of Donabate brings you to the upmarket and more urban seaside village of Malahide with its castle, marina, pubs restaurants and shops. The historic town of Drogheda is also a short train ride from Skerries in the opposite direction to Dublin. If you have a car you could also explore the nearby Boyne valley and take in the unmissable Newgrange megalithic passage tomb as well as the ancient sites of the hills of Tara and Slane. And if you need some city action, Dublin city centre is only about 30 mins from Skerries by train.

The above posting is spot on.

Also check out: tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g551518-Skerries_Cou…

lots of info + pictures. let us know if you have any questions.

Remember some of the Easter holidays will also include March 17th - St Patricks day. There is normally a parade in Skerries. Not sure if you are around for then.

There used to be an Easter Festival in the neighbouring town of Rush but I don't know whether this is still running. If it is it would be a good place to mingle with the locals. Rush also has a VERY good theatre. I can only come up with www.dublintourist.com/towns/rush_and_lusk/ , sorry!
