ON THE BULL WALL
I visited the Bull Wall with the intention of photographing the large Star Of The Sea Statue but the images were corrupted so I will need to return at a later date. While I was there I photographed the well known shelters.
The Bull Wall is a long, narrow spit of land that separates Dublin Bay from the River Liffey. It is located in Clontarf, County Dublin, Ireland. The Bull Wall is a popular spot for swimming, and there are two main bathing shelters located on the wall.
The bathing shelters were designed by Herbert Simms in 1934. They are simple, elegant structures made of concrete. The shelters are painted a pale golden yellow, which contrasts with the blue of the sea. The shelters provide a place for swimmers to change and to get out of the water. They also offer some protection from the wind and the sun.
The swimming shelters are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are free to use. The water quality at the Bull Wall is generally good, but it is always best to check the website of Dublin City Council before swimming.
