  The slopes here are accessed from the carpark at "The Summit". Follow the laneway by the small house near the right hand side of the car park entrance  downhill .
At the T junction on the path go right towards the Bailey Lighthouse. The east slopes are at the T, to the right of the T (both south-east facing shown left top).
Turn right at the T and walk  300 metres the south slope which is at the entrance to the Bailey Lighthouse with a nice view south across Dublin Bay, and in the distance - Dalkey and Killiney. Just walk along the cliff pathway until the direction of lift is perfect. Then fly!

The NE slope is behind the south slope on the Bailey Lighthouse headland.

  The standing is on grass and heather, the first is a bit of gorse bush, but the right slope is all grass, and just lovely.   As you can see - the lift is superb.  Also - there is always something special about flying over water.

 

  Please email me your info about where you fly, so I can include it..
