Stretching for approximately 1 kilometre along the Strand Road, the Promenade is a popular walking place and provides outstanding views over Sandymount Strand to Poolbeg, Irishtown Nature Park and Dun Laoghaire.  Construction of the Promenade commenced in the late 1960's with final landscape works being completed in the mid 1970's.  About halfway along the Promenade is the Martello Tower, the Promenade's main focal point, which was constructed in 1804.

In November 2002 the City Council erected a sculpture entitled "An Cailin Ban" by the Mexican artist Sebastian.  The sculpture was donated to the City by the Mexican Government and now stands as a significant focal point at the northern end of Sandymount Promenade.
