A walk to the paradise (Dublin, ireland)

When you truly seek something, the entire universe works in fulfilling your wish. I know that sounds dramatic, but it is actually true.

During my stay in Dublin, I lived in a small rented apartment in the southeastern suburb of the city, known as Blackrock, county Dublin. It was historically a small fishing village which began to be developed only in the 19th century into a gorgeous seaside town now .

I spent the lazy evening doing all of my work and was incredibly exhausted from staying at home all day. Can you understand that vibe where you want to go out but don’t want to go out? I bet you do! So I really wanted to see something beautiful, but with the least efforts. The least I could do was to just go for a walk nearby. I took the usual route, but this time I found a small pathway covered in a silhouette of trees and climbing plants. It literally had the vibe of a portal, where if I crossed it, I would reach to some other world.

2 Brave Lions

You can find this mysterious walkway along the Stradbrook road in the Deansgrange. Just after two turns, I arrived to a beautiful estate that consisted of charmingly structured houses sitting beside each other. You would come across this setup almost everywhere in Dublin.I encountered another trail and followed it, enthusiastically advancing further on my adventure (Haha!)

Well, how can I forget Covid? These 2 brave lions didn’t fail to remind me about how safe and careful I have to be in the midst of my excitement.


With few more twists and turns, I arrived to a paradise. A vast open land filled with water, consuming all of my worriness and diluting it with its watery wonderland. The sky added a texture to the entire scene, only to make it look more stunning.

This place is known as Seapoint, a small seafront area between Blackrock and Monkstown in the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown area.The N11 National primary route has been designated to link Dun Laoghaire harbour as the N31

Martello Tower

Martello Tower

I walked towards the well preserved Martello Tower on the edge of the seaside resort. The weather was amazingly perfect, and I couldn’t take my eyes off the soothing lively looking sea resting in the evening glow. I took a path that ran along the seashore. Usually, it is also a swimming point for most days, but now in the evening, you’ll just find yourself and your slowly developing connection towards this place.

I chose a spot and sat there for while. With tears streaming down my face, I could do nothing but sit cross-legged on the rocky shore at horizon in front of me. Waves of deep red, orange and many indescribable colours crept towards me before running away, only to repeat the process in a cycle that caused droplets of salty water to spray onto my new shoes. But beyond the thick robes of waves, was the magical and breath-taking sunset – the source of this heavenly EARTHY VIBE.

vast ocean

The vast ocean in front of me was my home, where I belonged, a place to escape from my life away from the waves. Nothing could ever take that feeling away. This undoubedtly became my favorite spot and would suggest you to go visit at least once, while you are in Dublin.

Lastly, I didn’t arrive to this place by luck, I already asked locals about it and they directed me towards it via that shortcut (Haha!).
