Howth, County Dublin; where teenagers flock along the cliff path to an old swimming and diving haunt, now re-claimed, boards are set up for the summer months and youths scramble up the barnacle encrusted rocks, some with socks the only protection for delicate feet…
Directions; At Howth just north of Dublin city, walk to the end of the promenade past the harbour then turn onto Balscadden road and climb to Kilrock car park where you join the cliff path. As the trail climbs higher look out for the narrow track down to the cove. Push through long grass and bracken and when the path turns sharply left the rocks and diving plinths can be seen. Continue down to the vertiginous staircase onto the rocks.
Jumping and diving, accessible via public transport from Dublin city.
