Dunes of Dublin Bay - Biosphere

Dublin Bay Dunes Dublin Bay Dunes

Dublin Bay is a UNESCO Biosphere - a protected area designated important for wildlife.

Since 1981 the beach and dunes, pictured here, at Bull Island in Dublin Bay have been a Biosphere, in 2015 the whole bay was brought into that designation including the Baily Lighthouse on Howth Head.

There are almost 700 Biospheres worldwide and they are defined as places where 'nature and culture connect'.

So if you are visiting Dublin and looking for things to do outside of the city, its bay is a scenic place for photography and also wildlife. Check out some of the migrating birds you can see and photograph from one of my earliest posts on the Panoramic Ireland website here.
