Worth a visit during the summer as you can stroll the pier or visit one of the many restaurants on the coast (mao's, Gourmet Burger, Henhouse) or stop in for a 99 at the famous teddy's not far down the road. Not a place for a winter visit as it can get very cold from gusts coming in off the... More

Dun Laoghaire pier has long been a favourite with Dubliners. If you are visiting Dublin and would like a breezy walk with super views then take the Dart south bound and get off at the station of the same name, the trip should take around 30 mins. There are two piers with the lesser known being found after a 5-10... More

What could be better after a night on " The black stuff" than a refreshing 1.5 mile walk along the harbour wall. Trust me, you will love if and feel so much better!

My wife and I took a long walk along the pier and promenade at Dun Laoghaire whilst staying at the Royal Marine for the weekend. It was a typical autumn day with bright sunshine and a cold breeze with the sound of the sea close by. The Council are obviously investing in the facilities along the seafront which will only...

I fished off the pier here for many years; the mackerel are bountiful in August. I have sailed here for years and its a wonderful place to use as a base with first class yacht clubs. Excellent restaurants are only a stones throw away with fish top of the menu..as you would imagine. My Mum lives nearby so I love... More

A good long walk in a safe, modern environment. Wonderful sea views. Bracing sea air. The local environment has lots of amenities and this is a popular spot at weekends.

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 :)
