It is common knowledge that there are some amazing places in Dublin for breathtaking views.

With an array of man-made and natural scenic spots, we really are spoiled for choice in the capital.

Here's a list of all the best natural views to take your breath away.

Dublin Mountains

The best views often come from the highest up places, and you are unlikely to get much higher up than here.

The skyline is visible from several points – including Three Rock and Ticknock – but it is hard to pip Montpellier Hill, otherwise known as the Hellfire Club, for the best spot.

Of course, the area is synonymous with ghoulish haunting stories, so don't go at night if you're easily spooked!

Howth cliff walk

This is one of the best spots in North Dublin.

The cliff walk loops the whole way around the peninsula but most tend to stick to the harbour to summit route, where you'll find spectacular views of the Irish Sea and Dublin Bay, as well as South Dublin and even the Mourne and Cooley Mountains to the north.

In fact, members of Howth Golf Club even swear that the mountains of north Wales can be seen from the top of the hill on a clear day.

As well as this, the lesser-known Deer Park route can offer more peaceful but equally spectacular sweeping views across the capital.

Bray head

Okay, we know what you're thinking, technically part of Wicklow, but we are claiming this just for the sheer beauty of the views from the peak of this.

Located half an hour from the DART station, this is a challenging walk but so so worth it when you get to the top. You'll be able to see the capital in all of it's glory for miles!

Killiney Hill

Famous as the home to Bono and the Edge of U2, singer Enya and former Formula 1 driver Eddie Irvine, the gorgeous coastal village of Killiney on the southside of the city is very accessible as it is less than 30 minutes on the train from town.

Be sure to climb Killiney Hill for amazing views of Dublin Bay, but if you’d rather a less tiring walk, there’s a car-park viewing point part of the way up, where you can relax and take in the view.

Record €32m total settlement for boy, 9, left brain damaged after Dublin hospital failed to diagnose infection

Record €32m total settlement for boy, 9, left brain damaged after Dublin hospital failed to diagnose infection It is the highest ever settlement in the history of the State for a personal injuries claim . The €25million settlement was approved by the High Court on Wednesday. The move came after earlier this week the boy’s parents pleaded with the court to reject a settlement sum of three million less of €22million saying it was not enough and was less than half of their claim. Children’s University Hospital, Temple Street previously apologised in court “for the failings" that caused injuries to Benjamin who has cerebral palsy, is quadriplegic and cannot speak.

It is situated on Bull Island which was created in the 19th century in Dublin Bay to deal with silting problems, so therefore not exactly natural but not exactly properly man made either.

On the beach, you are treated to immaculate views of the bay and surrounding areas, such as Howth, Clontarf, and South Dublin.

Be sure to treat yourself to a warm cup of coffee in the highly-rated 'Happy Out' before or after your visit to the beach!
