The weather forecast for sat looks promising. Meet at the beach car park at 11am. The coffee shack has outdoor tables and chairs. Bring a flask, seat, mask and your covid passport for anyone who wants to have coffee inside. There are toilets both at the beach and up at the pier. There is also outdoor coffee facilities at the pier. The car park at the pier is elevated so enables painting from your car if cold. There is a re-cycling bin at the beach car park for coffee cups etcSee More

"Hi Norah ... yes, some places are pretty packed. But this morning I went for a walk around Slane and then on the beach at Bettystown and it would have been no problem painting in either location. "
