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.

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.

The harbour and pier in Dun Laoghaire always remind me of days gone by - my childhood and Sunday afternoon trips there to watch the Mail Boat sailing out of the harbour. Also the band playing on the pier and the people promenading. It also reminds me of old Victorian photos of the Pier and how it hasn't changed much... More

I like the history and the scenery. There are many boats to see leisure and fishing. Great for taking photo's. A bit smelly when the boats come in after their catch.

Clean and tidy and you can watch the boats come in to the harbour. You can sit and relax just of the harbour with a good selection of coffee shops

Just the place after the walk to the pierhead to go yott-spotting. From single-handed pram dinghies to fast racing-keelboats, they are all here to enjoy. And it's all free! Maybe racecourses and football clubs could do the same... , but then that's highly unlikely as they've got millionaires to maintain.
