The Stoop Your Head' bar and restaurant is supposed to be a good place to eat.

 

The quiet and peaceful Skerries Harbour once a busy fishing port providing significant employment income to this sleepy ex fishing village..

 There is probably more marine tourism than work for fishing boats now far outnumbered by yachts.

Skerries is a town (large village) in the north of County Dublin. There is decent picnic beach at Skerries and good car parking facilities. You can walk by the rocks by the sea, around to the harbour or along the beach. There is also a children's playground.

 The small harbour is a pleasant area to stroll around and there are plenty of places to places to eat and drink near the harbour or in the main street of Skerries. The "Stoop Your Head" Bar and Restaurant 'pub' near Skerries Harbour is a good place to eat.

On the outskirts of Skerries there is the Watermill Cafe, Craft Shop and Exhibition Centre at Skerries Mills. This is worth a visit and the complex consists of a restored watermill and two windmills. The cafe is a good place to relax with some refreshments before facing the Dublin traffic.
