A terrific place to take an evening stroll alone or with your partner. Great views of the sea, mountains and the towns surrounding the harbor.

We were lucky last week with beautiful weather visiting Dun Laoghaire! Had a very nice walk on the pier, very calming and relaxing. We've fallen in love with Ireland and the people are very friendly

Maybe a half day trip? Easily accessable from dublin using the Dart which has a station right by the harbour. The harbour has the life boat, a yacht club and the piers to promenade along. There are plenty of places within easy reach to get something to eat and drink, plus ice cream and fish and chip outlets on the... More

The harbour is a little gem for DL. I have lived here & visited as a tourist. The harbour is ever changing but sort of remains the same and it is great for locals as a place to clear the cobwebs, rain or shine. I know that changes are afoot as this is not currently a route for the ferries... More

Wonderful views across the bay. Tske the time and walk either if the piers. Enjoy views back to the city, across the bay to Howth or down the coast to Killiney. Catch sight of the seals in the Harbour.

Only ever knew this place as where the ferry landed from Holyhead and you got the train for Dublin. How it has changed the harbour side is a lovely walk with some good views of the coast around the bay. There's even a couple of small beaches nearby. Nice run out for the family.
