Lovely harbor with lots of different kinds of boats and ships passing by. I liked to stroll along the pier, or sit in the little park nearby.

Lots of history. I liked the ambience, the views and pretty much all of it. What's to dislike? there's not much else say, visit it yourself and see.

Beautiful place! You can not be sad here. Amazing sites and lovely stroll down the end of the pier. Great place to go on a summers day for an ice cream and take in the view or even on a cold winters day for a hot chocolate and sit by the ocean. An all time favourite of mine :)

On advice from a local on the Dart train on a trip to Sandycove, descended at Dun Laoghaire station and walked to the Martello tower. Wonderful stroll.

This was a side trip to find our traveling companions ancestral home. If I were to go back to Ireland, I would at least make this a day trip if not longer. Very picturesque sea town. Had a beautiful waterfront park. Worth a side step to visit

A great open area to stroll, a bit windy but very good views and refreshing. A lovely Shackleton Endurance exhibition was open by the Harbor. My wife and I really enjoyed that.

I visited 2 times around 2pmish on sunny days, the pier itself was a lovely walk but there could’ve been more stalls either selling local arts and crafts or little nibbles along there, I was excepting local artistes to be sitting there, lots of ice-cream huts or sweet gift treats in local packaging. It lacked atmosphere, the whole harbour and... More

Spent a couple of hours with our kids there and it was time well spent. Really clean, beautiful views and lots of kiosks. With some ice cream from Teddys and the People's Park, with playground, just a couple of minutes stroll away, the kids really enjoyed it.
