The North Bull Island Nature Reserve is one of the most important city wildlife spaces in the world and the most designated site in Ireland. A National Nature Reserve is an important area for wildlife and is strictly protected for nature conservation and designated under the Wildlife Act. All wildlife and habitats within the Bull Island Reserve, both on the island itself and intertidal areas, are protected by Irish and European Legislation.


Saint Anne's Park has a variety of beautiful woodland walks and gardens including its rose and walled gardens. It has a fine collection of trees and a small river which travels across it. Among other things, it has facilities and space for playing GAA, soccer, tennis and golf. The Trees & Garden Walk will end with a visit to the Peace Tree dedicated on the 29 September 2017 in a ceremony that included the Brass Quintet of the Royal Norwegian Navy Band, Holy Faith Transition Year students, the two St John the Baptist churches in Clontarf and the staff of St Anne’s Park.
