I'd hoped to visit Sutton for quite a while, and finally got my chance in March 2009, when I flew to Dublin for a day trip, and caught the DART there, before heading off to Howth.
Why was I so keen to visit?
My main reason was to visit the grave of Phil Lynott- the onetime lead singer of Thin Lizzy. He was my idol during my teenage years and beyond! I got to see Thin Lizzy 7 times in concert.
I'd also heard that Sutton was a quiet coastal village.
Well, I did like Sutton, and its dramatic skies and views across the bay to Dublin - 'The City' Although I was only here for a couple of hours, I got to walk around quite a bit.
Sutton (Cill Fhionntáin) is about 12km from Dublin. I travelled there by the DART. (it's easily accessible by road or bus route 31 too).
I headed first for the church of St Fintans, expecting to find the cemetery there, but eventually found out that it was about a mile away, up a slight hill.
I finally found Phils grave, and spent about 5 minutes there - looking at the offerings and paying my respects to my teen hero.
Then it was back to the station and the train to Howth.
- Pros:A Quiet seaside town.
- Cons:Didn't stay here long enough to find any
- In a nutshell:The final resting place of Phil Lynott.
This was a day trip from Dublin, so I just carried a large handbag-enough for my camera, notebook etc.- it was a fairly... more travel advice
