Having spent many a day in Dublin, I decided to explore the seaside by taking the train south of Dublin to Dun Laoghaire. It was about a 30 minute ride from the hotel in Ballsbridge. It was a perfect day, plenty of sunshine and temperature in the mid 60's. Dun Laoghaire sits on the south-east Irish coast and is the... More

This is an excellent example of a completly man made Victorian harbour. There is no river, estuary or cove pre-existent, in other words an engineering masterpiece. lots of activity in the harbour and an ever increasing backdrop of social facilities

The harbour is full of beautiful boats/yachts, the east pier is just wonderful to walk on with stunning views and stalls selling seafood and ice cream, buskers, walkers and photographers all enjoying this beautiful amenity. There are 2 levels on the pier the upper level gives you views towards Sandycove, the lower level views of Dun Laoghaire harbour. There is... More

The harbour is very nice, you can take a long walk on the pier. On a nice day it is wonderful, the views of the sea, boats are truly stunning. Lots of cafe's and restaurants in the vicinity and a visit to Teddy's Ice cream shop is a must.

Been to Dun Laoghaire many times by ferry, road and rail but this was my first sailing visit. It was nice to see so many yachts racing just outside the harbour and also to observe the HSS Stena Explorer entering and leaving the harbour. We stayed in the Marina, where facilities were well up to standard. Had a look around... More

Have recently moved to DL and it is a lovely place to live or to spend a day at. The harbour is very nice, you can take a long walk on the pier. On a nice day it is wonderful, lovely views. A few nice cafés and restaurants in the vicinity.

Lots to do and see. I visited on a Sunday and it was rather busy but there were still plenty of seats to sit on and lots of places to buy snacks and drinks

The sea wall and piers are stunning. On a beautiful sunny day a walk to the end of the East Pier is amazing, although you can almost get blown away when there are white tops on the waves within the harbour, which is absolutely massive. Take the time to peak through onto the seaward side of the wall in the... More

I like going to Dun Laoghaire for a walk along the prom or on the harbour from time to time and stop to the sunday market for fresh vegs and a take away lunch (wide range of food available). You can walk along the coast up to Dalkey and from there take the train back to Dublin.
