Dundrum Bay is a bay located next to Dundrum, County Down, Northern Ireland. The bay was home to a roughly year-long "shipwreck" of the SS Great Britain; in actuality, the "wreck" was a period of time in which the ship had run aground of a sandbar.[1] The Dundrum Coastal Path, a part of the larger Lecale Way, is a popular hiking trail that winds along the fronts of the bay; the trek is especially popular with birdwatchers.[2] The Blackstaff River and the Carrigs River both empty into the bay.[3]
