  • At Clontarf Castle, we are delighted to introduce an exciting new service that promises to enhance your stay and elevate your exploration of Dublin’s breathtaking locales. Say hello to Moby Bikes—a convenient and eco-friendly way for our guests to traverse the stunning surroundings of Clontarf and beyond.
  • With Moby Bikes at your disposal, you will unlock a world of adventure, from the serene Clontarf Promenade to the picturesque Dollymount Beach, Bull Island and beyond to the majestic Howth, and Malahide. Join us as we embark on a journey to discover the wonders that await with Moby Bikes at Clontarf Castle. 

Pedal into Adventure: Discovering Clontarf and Beyond

As you glide along the scenic Clontarf Promenade, savor the panoramic views of Dublin Bay and the serene beauty of Bull Island’s Nature Reserve. Pass by charming cafes and restaurants along the coast, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the peaceful atmosphere and the wonders of the area.

Embrace the Coastal Charm: Dollymount Beach and Bull Island

One of the highlights of exploring with Moby Bikes is the opportunity to visit Dollymount Beach and Bull Island, some of Dublin’s most beloved coastal gems. With your trusty bike as your companion, you will have the freedom to wander along the sandy shores, dip your toes in the refreshing waters, and bask in the serenity of nature’s embrace.

As you pedal through Bull Island, keep your eyes peeled for native bird species and other wildlife that call this pristine sanctuary home. Pause for a moment of tranquility amidst the dunes, where the rhythmic crash of the waves provides the perfect soundtrack to your coastal adventure.

Venture Further: Howth and Malahide

For the more adventurous spirits, Moby Bikes opens the door to even greater exploration, with easy access to the charming coastal villages of Howth and Malahide. Embark on a scenic ride along the stunning coastline, passing rugged cliffs, ancient castles, and bustling harbors along the way.

In Howth, savor the freshest seafood delights at the local fish market, or embark on a hike along the cliff paths for panoramic views of Dublin Bay. Take the route that most pedal bikes wouldn’t, up the hill for an incredible view out to the Irish Sea. Stop off into one of the many beaches around the head for a Sea Swim too. 

Meanwhile, in Malahide, wander through the picturesque village streets, explore the historic Malahide Castle and Gardens, or simply relax in the tranquil ambiance of this coastal oasis. Take your bicycle to the marina area of Malahide village and watch as the sails of boats pass by. Lock up in the public bike racks and enjoy a coffee in one of the cafes along your exciting journey. 

Don’t worry about the distance, all of our rentals are Electric Bikes. Coasting from town to town has never been easier, with an electric powered bicycle underneath you. Drop by businesses as you undertake more daily activities on your stay in the Castle.
