Killiney Hill Car Park
The Killiney rights of way walk is a circular route commencing and ending at Killiney Hill car park and taking in Roches Hill commons, the 7th century monastic site at Cill Iníon Léinin and the fisherman’s right of way paths from Killiney beach to Killiney village. Its educational value has relevance to the subjects of history, religion, nature study, geography, art, Irish and English, and for older students, economics, CSPE and architectural appreciation. Mathematics could also be incorporated through a search for geometric shapes. In truth the walk is an all round educational experience providing approximately two hours of gentle hill walking exercise through a varied terrain that is rich in history and culture. The walk can be tailored to have a specific subject focus.
