Every morning, once the sun has risen and those bonkers Happy Pear twins have done their free range tantric somersaults, The Cove turns into what appears to be the wrap party for 101 Dalmations. Only you get every breed of dog down there early in the morning – and every breed of Greystonian too.
Such a communal sight would no doubt delight the many, many generations of visitors that have come to The Cove before for a little rest and relaxation, and, of course, some deepcontemplation. And maybe even a little skinny-dipping, the latter having been enough of a problem for the La Touche estate to build bathing boxes way back when this was, after all, The Ladies’ Cove.
Back then, there were steps leading all the way down from the Garda station corner, but there’s something far more inviting – and safer – about that long, graceful ramp that slowly reveals the full beauty of The Cove as you make your way down past the slab of jagged rock to your right.
