Dublin sunset can be spectacular as the rays of the setting sun reflect off Dublin Bay.
Beauty to me lies in the radiating glow of the setting sun. Ireland's west coast is renowned for spectacular sunsets, but today I thought I might share the magnificence of the setting sun across Dublin Bay.
This photo was taken from the beach at Sandycove on the southern shore of Dublin Bay.
The Sun Over Dublin Bay
Dublin City lies at the center of a horseshoe shaped bay facing east and stretching from Howth Head in the north to Dalkey Point in the south.
It is lovely to fly into Dublin Airport from America early in the morning, when the airplane flies towards the rising sun in the east, then turns over the bay to approach the runway from the sea.
Sunrise is amazing over the watery horizon of the Irish Sea, but sunsets can be just as brilliant.
This sunset is seen from the northern tip of the bay at Howth Head. Dublin Bay sunsets are glorious.
These pictures are a little taste of all that County Dublin has to offer.
You can check out some other posts about Dublin too. We've looked at the full moon over Dublin Bay and explored some Irish superstitions about the full moon.
We've also watched the sunrise over Howth Head.
We've also taken a look at the magnificent scenery from on top of the Ben of Howth, looking toward Wicklow and across Dublin Bay.
I hope you enjoy these armchair tours of my hometown and county.
Thanks for following my recipes and ramblings.
