Dublin Bay is a C-shaped inlet of the Irish Sea on the east coast of Ireland and Tara Towers Hotel overlooks the curve of Dublin Bay.
The bay is about 10 kilometres wide and 7 km in length stretching from Howth Head in the north to Dalkey Point in the south, at the centre of the bay is the city, with many of the rivers of Dublin reach the Irish Sea at Dublin Bay: the River Liffey, the River Dodder River Tolka, and various smaller rivers and streams coming for the Dublin Mountains.
Dublin Bay today is quite different, from 1970s it is part of the growing cosmopolitan culture with the Dublin Dock lands shouldering Google's Facebook Windmill lane studios but there's a lot more to this part of the city than IT hubs and glass towers. Dublin Bay is part of Grand Canal Dock basin dates from 1791, with Boland's Mills playing a role in the 1916 rising, and U2 have recorded several albums at The Factory studios, Dublin Dock lands hosts many restaurants café shops bars clubs and one of Dublin Hippest Festival each year.
Looking back at Dublin bay it once had a Promenade Pier and Baths, it was called Merrion promenade and reached from Sandymount strand to the swimming baths in the bay in 1883, the baths measured approximately 40 by 40 metres, with a 75-metre pier added in 1884, and featured a bandstand halfway along where the summer concerts were regularly held till the 1920, when sadly the pier had deteriorated so much that it had to be demolished, and only the concreate baths remain.
Moving forward with Dublin Bay in 2017, it is now part of the UNESCO Biosphere which includes Booterstown Marsh, a wild bird sanctuary located in front of the Tara Towers Hotel, all easily accessible by foot
