About Sandymount, Dublin 4
Sandymount is an affluent, highly desirable area with a quaint suburban village huddled around an old-fashioned green, just over a mile from the city centre.

Sandymount Strand, Dublin 4
Seaview Holiday apartments are located on Strand Road where the large residential properties are mostly 18th and 19th century architecture which is ideally placed to enjoy all the benefits of the Strand. Stretching for approximately 1 kilometre along the Strand Road, the Promenade is a popular walking place and provides outstanding views over Sandymount Strand to Poolbeg, Irishtown Nature Park and Dun Laoghaire.
Construction of the Promenade commenced in the late 1960's with final landscape works being completed in the mid 1970's. In the last few years it's been revamped and it looks stunning at night time, with all the lights along the path in front of the water.
About halfway along the Promenade is the Martello Tower, the Promenade's main focal point, which was constructed in 1804. In November 2002 the City Council erected a sculpture entitled "An Cailin Ban" by the Mexican artist Sebastian. The sculpture was donated to the City by the Mexican Government and now stands as a significant focal point at the northern end of the Sandymount Promenade.
