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.

This is a short train ride from Dublin city centre (20 minutes) and probably not much longer driving. Well kept, clean and what many would call quaint. You are able to swim off the rocks away from the boats, there is no sandy area. When we went there was a large farmer's/ local market which I believe runs most Sundays.... More

Beautiful place to walk. The place is very lively, you could just sit and watch the people buzzing around, from the fitness walkers, to the joggers..and the couples out with the dogs that seem to just love investigating all the smells around them..you can really see how well kept and clean the people keep it..the view you get is picture...

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
