Sutton To Sandycove Promenade and Cycleway (S2S)

The Dublin Regional Authority (DRA), the authority responsible for promoting co-ordination, co-operation and joint action among the public services and local authorities in the Dublin region, Dublin City Council (DCC) and Dun Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council (DLRCC) undertook studies into the possibility of developing a single cycleway and promenade along the coast of Dublin Bay from Sutton to Sandycove.

The total length of the proposed promenade and cycleway will be approximately 22 kilometres in length from Sutton to Sandycove. The scheme proposes to upgrade and join up various existing sections of the promenade and cycleway to form a continuous route along the seafront of Dublin Bay. In the northern section of the development much of the facility already exists and simply either requires upgrade, improvement or to be joined together by “missing gaps”.

Project Vision

The distinctive sweep of Dublin Bay from Howth Head in the north to Bray Head in the south forms one of the most attractive coastal amenities available to any Capital city. The citizens of Dublin and Ireland are justly proud of such amenities as Howth, Dollymount Strand, Bull Island, Sandymount Strand, Seapoint and Dun Laoghaire, which stretch along the necklace of Dublin Bay.

It is recognised there is a need to provide greater access to the bay, both for the people of Dublin and for visitors to the City, and to encourage them to take advantage of this superb natural amenity, while respecting the unique environment.

The vision of S2S is to provide a continuous promenade and cycleway approximately 22 kilometres in length, around Dublin Bay from Sutton to Sandycove linking existing and proposed cycle and walking routes.  The proposed route for S2S is contained within the boundaries of Fingal County Council, the Dublin Docklands Development Authority, Dublin City Council and Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
