Nice walk tour

I had a pleasant walk around the Harbour. Had a nice ice cream close to the DART station and went walking with friends. But you got to be careful with the wind.

If visiting Dublin it is highly recommended that you take a DART ride from the city centre to Dun Laoghaire (about 30 minutes) for a few hours. The DART stops very close to the harbour and East Pier which is one of the main attractions of the harbour. The pier itself is a 2.6km round trip but be aware that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this lovely port city last month. The people are very friendly, there was even Irish music and dancing in the streets! What a treat for us. A nice stop on our British Isles itinerary.

Dun Laoghaire Harbour is a lovely harbour that has a carnival on at the moment (26th June - 12th July) with a lovely Ferris wheel for kids and adults alike. There is a photo exhibition in the Ferry Terminal building with photos of the famous Shackleton expedition taken by the expedition photographer Frank Hurley which is excellent. The general harbour...

Rain or shine, a walk along Dun Laoghaire Harbour sorts everything out. Do go dressed for the weather and wear good walking shoes. Take note of the granite boulders used to build the harbour, they were quarried locally and transported by horses pulling open carriages along a track almost 100 years ago. Absolutely amazing!

Nice place for a walk out the pier, approximately 1.6 klms. Light house on the end. Plenty of food trucks on the walk out and ice creams at the lighthouse plus some seating. Plenty of boats in the harbour and yachts on the water. Usually people fishing off the rocks. Nice views. Nice restaurants nearby and shopping one block away... More

We had a walk there one afternoon. Even though it was windy the scenery was very beautiful. The harbour is very well kept. Buses to Dun Laoghaire are fairly regular therefore getting there is very easy.

There are seaside promenades, the seawall and green spaces to stroll through with harbor views and the requisite sea air. Others out enjoying it, not crowded. Lovely.
