Great place to go if the weather is good. Though parking is very bad here I found and eating here is very expensive so best to bring a packed lunch perhaps but well worth a visit

I had been sailing from 11am until about 13.00hrs. I was ready for a coffee. I went for a stroll along the pier & parked myself on a rock @ the end & could easily have sat there all afternoon watching the sailing boats. There was a cafe nearby if you feel the need of refreshment, very good ice cream.... More

This is very much a working harbour so an obvious place of interest. The pier provides a safe settled area to wal along out to the ighthouse at the far end. It's an ideal place for an afternoon stroll and to look out to sea.

This is a very popular local attraction. There is not much to see but the "sea" itself, and, when the weather is clear, to view Howth across the bay and to feel the wind (and rain, and snow, whatever!). It is very popular with the locals (even those from miles away!). Parking can be a bit of a problem at... More

This is a beautiful area to visit and take exercise. Stroll along one of the piers, enjoy the view, visit Joyce's Tower or the National Maritime Museum. Or take a coffee in one of the cafes...the list is endless.

The Pier offers a beautiful walk regardless of time of year and it offers something different each time. My favourite is Spring through Fall as there is a Fish and Chip Shack and there is nothing like fish and chips on a pier watching people find a bench a mooring and enjoy. It also offers coffee and ice cream along... More

I have not seen too many harbours to beat Dun Laoghaire, the surroundings, location and views are great and make for a very pleasant day out, well worth a trip out here

Although there is not much to do in dun laoghaire in my opinion, you can not fault dun laoghaire pier. It Is alway very clean and is well maintained, and on a calm summers day, it's the place to be.
