Portrane

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces E

Crag features
"The bouldering in Portrane is steep - on mini-cliffs and narrow alleys - with powerful moves between relatively low-friction, sea-polished slopers and edges. The best time to go is about two hours before low tide, as most of the problems have been out of the water for a few hours. A cloth is very handy to clean sand off your shoes."

Head north from Dublin on the airport road (N1) or motorway (M1). About 5 km after the airport and Swords, is a turn for Donabate and Portrane, take this and carry straight through Donabate and Portrane village, past the caravan park into the carpark.
