Dublin Bay is a large natural harbour situated on the east coast of Ireland in the province of Leinster. It is bordered by the city of Dublin to the south and the Irish Sea to the east. The bay is fed by the River Liffey and is home to a number of islands such as Ireland’s Eye, Lambay Island, and Dalkey Island.

In the 16th century, the English established a colony in Dublin and the bay was used to transport troops and supplies. During the 17th century, the bay was the site of a number of battles between the English and Irish forces, including the Battle of Dublin Bay in 1649.

Today, Dublin Bay is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. It is home to a number of popular attractions including the Dublin Port, the Guinness Storehouse, and the National Maritime Museum. The bay is also a popular spot for sailing, fishing, and swimming.

The bay is a rich ecosystem, with a variety of marine life including dolphins, seals, and whales. It is also home to a number of bird species, including cormorants, gannets, and guillemots. The bay is also an important habitat for a number of species of fish, including cod, haddock, and mackerel.
