Existing Walkways

Walkways already exist along a significant amount of the route. On the north side, the sections at Fairview and Clontarf  have recently been extended to Alfie Byrne Road. 

On the south side, sections of new walkway have been constructed along the north and south quays by the Dublin Docklands Development Authority and more are planned which will extend all the way from the Custom House to the East Link Bridge. There are existing walkways in Ringsend Park and a relatively new section constructed by Dublin City Council  at Sandymount Strand. 

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council have completed a section of promenade from Sandycove to the Dun Laoghaire baths. These walkways link to some of the traditional Dublin walks at the Bull Wall, The Pigeon House Wall and Dun Laoghaire Pier.

Existing Cycleways

Cycle ways also exist along much of the route although not always in the same location as the walkways. A section of about 3 kms at Sutton comes to an abrupt end at the causeway to the Bull Island at St Annes. There is a long section of cycleway along the seafront at Clontarf and Fairview, which terminates where it meets East Wall Rd. This needs to be upgraded. The Dublin Docklands Development Authority has started  construction on sections of  cycleway on the north and south quays, which they expect to continue along both quays from the Custom House to the East Link Bridge.

S2S Proposal

The S2S proposal is to link all of the existing and proposed facilities to extend all the way around the Dublin Bay from Sutton to Sandycove. The route as proposed is approximately 22 km around the Bay with approximately 1.7 kms on both north and south quays.
