    Hawks Cliff is a small bathing place just outside the village of Dalkey, not far from Dun Laoghaire, and is very accessible to the city of Dublin.

    The beach with pebbles is secluded and can only be reached on foot. To the right is a path down to a rocky cove. The sea can be choppy with undercurrents so care is needed while swimming. Due to this surfers also frequent the beach.
