More Information...

Located just south of Dundalk, Blackrock was once a bustling seaside resort. In its heyday sand was imported to keep the beaches topped up and the visitors coming. These days things are a little quieter although there is still a pleasant sandy beach backed by a promenade. At the centre of the promenade is Blackrock's Millennium sundial - allegedly the largest in Ireland. When the tide goes out the sea all but disappears over the horizon exposing a vast area of sand and mudflats. Whilst not ideal for taking a dip this does provide a suitable habitat for a range of wading birds such as as brent geese and dunlins.
